Posted: Thursday 18th June 2015

Xeros, the innovative UK polymer bead cleaning company based in South Yorkshire, is using its ultra-low water laundry system to help businessses in California USA to beat the drought.

Laundry operations in hotels represent 20% of overall water usage, and the Xeros system will reduce water usage by up to 80%. In addition to the significant water savings, California-based businesses may also be eligible for financial incentives from their utilties companies.

The California Althletic Club, Stanford Park Hotel, Quality Inn Petaluma, Fairfield Inn Sebastopol, and Hilton Universal are all using the Xeros® polymer bead laundry systems that will help them meet the restrictions on water usage as a result of California’s prolonged drought.

The Xeros laundry system uses polymer bead technologyto provide superior cleaning results when comparedto conventional aqueous washing methods. By combining the beads’ molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results. The reusable beads have a lifespan of hundreds of washes before being collected and recycled for reintroduction into the polymer supply chain. The patented, award-winning system uses 80% less water, up to 50% less energy, and approximately 50% less detergent than traditional systems.

Kirk Lok, President/CEO, LOK Group of Companies which includes the Quality Inn in Petaluma, and the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Sebastopol said: “Businesses in California are faced with unprecedented restrictions on their use of water, and it is imperative that we come up with ways to change the way we do business but without noticeably impacting our customers

“The Xeros cleaning system is one of the few technologies that actually provide our customers with a better experience, while significantly cutting our water consumption. We’re saving the environment, saving money, and making our customers happier.”
