RESTON, VA.—Xeros Ltd., the United Kingdom-based maker of a “virtually waterless” laundry cleaning system, announced that the Hyatt Regency Reston, Virginia will begin using Xeros’ proprietary cleaning solution for its guestrooms and restaurant. The Xeros washing machine was installed at the property on December 4 to launder Hyatt’s guestroom and dining room linens and bath towels using less water, less chemicals and less energy than traditional methods. This marks the second site for Xeros in the United States. The company first entered the U.S. market in September 2012 with its first washing machine placed at Sterling Linens in Manchester, N.H.
“We’re excited to work with a premier hotel such as the Hyatt Regency Reston,” said Bill Westwater, CEO of Xeros Cleaning. “Our revolutionary cleaning system will provide the Hyatt with dramatic savings in laundry and utility costs per year, as well as superior cleaning for guest comfort and convenience.”
Backed by 30 years of research, Xeros’ polymer bead cleaning system decreases costs and lowers a laundry’s impact on the environment. The company currently provides its solution to in-house laundry operations for the lodging industry, as well as retail dry cleaners, and plans to broaden its commercial and domestic outreach in the future.
Carbon Footprint Reduced
“We are optimistic and encouraged by what the Xeros technology could mean for the future of laundry services and our industry,” said David Eisenman, general manager for the Hyatt Regency Reston. “Through our relationship with Xeros, we will be able to meet the needs of our guests, while at the same time reducing our utility consumption and carbon footprint in the world.”
The Xeros technology uses a fraction of the water, energy and detergent required for conventional cleaning methods, and provides significant cost-saving and environmental benefits.
Through the use of polymer bead technology, the Xeros cleaning process has been proven more effective than traditional “soap and water” methods. By combining the beads’ molecular structure with a proprietary detergent solution, the result is a superior cleaning medium that beats even water. The dirt from soiled items is attracted and absorbed by the beads, producing cleaner results than aqueous washing methods.
