At the Aged Care Residence Star of the sea the residents clothing is laundered in their in-house laundry. “We like our residents to be happy and looking good and feeling comfortable about how they appear, so we need a laundry that enables us to achieve that”, says Andrew Venosta, residential services manager Star of the sea.
Infection control with Richard Jay

Andrew Venosta mentions “The Barrier laundry system has been very effective for Star of the sea, in terms of implementing our laundry services. It certainly enables us to achieve our key objective, which is preventing cross infection for our laundry service”.

ReNew Ozone systems: a more effective way of washing to kill bacteria
Speak to our experts about revolutionary ReNew Ozone technology. ReNew Ozone reduces your laundry’s reliance on hot water and chemicals in the wash process while delivering exceptional infection control.
Exclusive to JayWash, ReNew Ozone systems work with the power of Ozone (O3) to produce validated disinfection results. ReNew Ozone’s strong disinfecting capabilities kill problematic microorganisms found in many soiled textiles from hospitals, medical facilities, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities.
Independent tests by microbiologists show that bacteria and harmful spores were still present on linen following commonly used wash cycles. A ReNew Ozone process, by comparison, destroyed the bacteria and spores.
You can add a ReNew Ozone system to your existing laundry equipment or build it into a completely new laundry installation.
Antibacterial wet wipes and door handles for commercial use
Promote disinfection in your organisation with our hand hygiene range.
Scientists have confirmed that Coronavirus (COVID-19) can survive on door handles for up to NINE DAYS. To put this in context, flu viruses can survive on hard surfaces and infect another person for 24 to 48 hours.
As a result, there’s never been a better time to install the Purehold range of hygienic door handles at your site, to help reduce the risk and spread of Coronavirus between door users.
Our quality wet wipe range encourages cleanliness and hand disinfection. JayWipes are designed for use in conjunction with wall-mounted Brightwell dispensers. The theft-proof dispensers keep JayWipes moist and free from contamination, allowing for easy, one-handed access.

Current hygiene demands
Current official laundry practice standards (AS/NZS 4146:2000 Australian New Zealand Laundry Standards) dictate that, in order for dirty linen to be properly disinfected, it must be ‘washed so that the temperature of the load is maintained at a minimum of 65°C for not less than 10 minutes, or at a minimum of 71°C for not less than 3 minutes.’
As leaders in our field, Richard Jay’s team of experts can recommend ways to achieve this.
