Jim Massey’s Cleaners and Laundry, of Montgomery, Alabama, was looking to eliminate their high costs of hot water and chemicals used in their textile and garment restoration department. John Massey provided proof of the effectiveness and payback by using EcoTex Cold-Water Disinfection Systems on their washers.
Engineered and manufactured by California-based ClearWater Tech, EcoTex was first introduced to John Massey by Eastern Regional Sales Manager, Skip Mallios who told John just how much of a difference a proper injection of ozone would make with the wash processes in his plant. John agreed with the thought of SAVING hot water, speeding up formulas, and reducing chemistry primarily to wash garments and textiles damaged by fire, smoke, water or infected by mold and other contaminants.
Skip installed an ECO2 ozone system on two of their 60 lb., UniMac commercial washers for a period of 30 days. After that time, management could evaluate the results and document the differences in quality, reduced hot water, chemical reduction, and run times compared to their normal laundry procedures.“Most of the garments we see come through our remediation department are toxic and carcinogenic, so proper washing of this gear is paramount. With the new installation of the EcoTex system we were able to measure the actual reductions in hot water, chemical use, and see the quality of the linens after one month. We were also able to shorten our wash cycles,” said John Massey. “The system did what Skip said it would do, plus it’s backed by the ClearWater Tech name. We are extremely happy.”
