  6. 6. PLANNING THE LINEN ROOM Consideration for an efficient linen room: LOCATION the linen room should be accessible for receipt and dispatch of linen from the back entrance of the hotel. It should be situated near the service elevator. SPACE the minimum space requirement for a linen room is 6 sq ft for a small hotel. Space is required for linen storage areas, linen exchange counter and soiled linen collection area. ENTRANCE should be at least 4 feet wide to ensure easy movement of heavy trolley. FLOORS AND WALLS - Floor tiles should be avoided as they tend to chip. Tiles walls are ideal. LIGHTING AND VENTILATION adequate ventilation is important to prevent growth of mildew. The air must be free of humidity and maintained at a temperature
  7. 7. PLANNING THE LINEN ROOM Consideration for an efficient linen room: STORAGE linen storage should be designed for maximum utilization of space. SOILED LINEN AREA should be close to the entrance and must be large enough to accommodate all the soiled linen. LINEN EXCHAGE COUNTER usually a window without any grilles, wide enough to pass bundle of linen through. UNIFORM STORAGE AREA Uniforms are normally hung on hangers, segregated according to designation and department. GUEST LAUNDRY AREA space must be allocated for storing, marking and recording soiled guest articles before they are sent to the laundry.
