"HLAC Announces New White Paper"
The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council is offering a free white paper, "Moment of Truth: Proper Airflow Critical to Healthcare Laundries." Now more than ever, healthcare laundries must ensure their facilities are properly designed and engineered to minimize environmental contamination of clean textiles before they are delivered back to healthcare customers.

The white paper discusses current indoor airflow standards, examines factors that can disturb proper airflow, and provides resources that can help a laundry effectively monitor and maintain an indoor climate that supports excellence in healthcare textile processing.
