Did you know improper disposal of your used PPE could be costing you money? At Bates Enterprises, our PPE industrial laundering services are customizable to fit your company’s budget and your employees’ needs. By opting for high-standard laundering services, you can save up to 85% on the cost of new PPE.
Instead of replacing soiled PPE, we’ll pick it up, clean it, and return it. This saves you money, reduces waste, improves efficiency, and helps your business meet local, state, and federal environmental standards.
Below we address some frequently asked questions about our PPE laundering services.
At Bates, we are masters of our craft, attacking greases, grimes, oils, and many other contaminants with our unique, specialized laundry formulas, state-of-the-art equipment, and customized washing cycles. We accomplish this without destroying the integrity of glove coatings or the performance value of your gloves and other PPE. Our proprietary process consists of four steps to ensure your items truly get cleaned and sanitized.
- We use or exceed the laundering processes recommended by the CDC.
- We use separate areas, containers, and loads to prevent cross-contamination.
- We create a custom laundering program so that each customer’s products are laundered separately.
- We keep comfort in mind, as laundered gloves are not only more fresh, but more comfortable.
It’s a common practice for other launderers to use just one method no matter what they’re cleaning. They will also pump oxidizers into the fabric to make it look clean. However, this breaks down the fibers, causing the material to wear out faster. Plus, if there are still contaminants on the fabric, it can cause massive problems and shut down an entire production line.
Our washing machines can run 24-hours a day, providing quick turnarounds on all your equipment, even when operational intensity increases. In addition, we go the extra mile and make it easy to lower environmental impact. We use only appropriate methods, chemicals, and detergents to prevent the degradation of your PPE. (For example, we all know water is bad for leather, but did you know bleach can corrode Kevlar?)

Worn-out PPE stuffs landfills with tons of non-biodegradable material. If your PPE has reached the end of its life, we can help you avoid throwing it away. To stay as green as possible, we dispose of all waste through a federally regulated disposal service and maintain 100% compliance with all federal environmental regulations. We also provide fabric-specific patching and repair work that meets industry safety guidelines.
Pickup is available for customers in the Southeast. For other regions, contact us for details on how to ship PPE to our recycling program.
We help any industry that uses personal protective equipment! From large-scale industrial clients to small businesses, we serve clients nationwide from our headquarters in Childersburg, Alabama.
Sectoral industrial laundering requirements for PPE differ markedly. For some, the goal is to remove biologicals. For others, hazardous chemicals need to be dealt with. At Bates, we tailor our services to the needs of your industry. We understand no two client servicing programs are the same, and with us, you’ll receive the type of laundering you need to handle specific contaminants.

Personal protective equipment doesn’t have to be a nonrenewable resource. Companies have a responsibility to consider the impact they’re making on the environment, and PPE laundering is part of the solution. While you may be tempted to throw out that pile of greasy gloves, it pays to think twice! Reduce waste, improve efficiency, avoid buying new supplies, and be kind to the environment — all at once! PPE laundering services like ours can help you meet ISO 14001 certification and zero-landfill standards. We strive to exceed environmental regulation requirements whenever possible.
Managing a PPE laundering program is a full-time responsibility. Instead of attempting to take on this chore in-house, reach out to our dedicated team at Bates Enterprises. In addition to cleaning, we also manage the collection and sorting of PPE.
