Carlton Kennels has been providing the people of Leeds with luxury accommodation for their beloved four legged friends since way back in 1979. And this is no ordinary kennel.
With facilities including centrally heated kennel blocks, hydrotherapy pools, treadmills, outdoor runs, dog grooming and even a collection service – they really do go that extra mile.
Sounds like quite a job doesn’t it? A lot of upkeep, hard work and dedication is needed to keep this business running. But what about the equipment?
With increasing volumes of bedding and blankets, owner Tom Hollings needed a commercial washing machine to deal with regular loads. Not only that but he also wanted to ensure that the detergents used would be kind to the animals’ skin.
Initially a site survey was undertaken by one of our qualified engineers including an inspection of the water supply (a bore hole on the land which the washing machine would need to use as its sole source of water).
Following this we recommended an appropriate machine for the volume and type of bedding the kennels would be washing – the Miele PW6080. This machine was the perfect choice, offering them the load capacity and wash programmes required for the task.
The Miele PW6080 is a commercial washing machine with an impressive 8kg capacity. Ideal for any sector where infection control is of utmost importance such as nursing, care homes, hospitals and veterinary surgeries.
The machine also has sluice and thermal disinfection programmes that meet NHS CFPP 01-04 and CQC Standards for exceptional cleaning to the highest standard – great news when trying to reduce the spread of infection and to look after those furry friends!
