Removing paint marks....

We recently had painters come in and redo the walls, doors, and even some of the carpet!!  And on eof our Clinic Armour pillow cases.Anyone who has had the experience of commercial painters understands that even despite all the briefing, they often pain t things they shouldn't.   My experience is never tell painters you are replacing your carpet. This translates to painters thinking, we don't need drop sheets.In our most recent experience our painters managed to somehow paint the side of one of the Clinic Armour pillow covers.   Hmm.

From there end, they were using a new sheet per client per bed.Factor this over the recommended life of a cover being three years, and this clinic will save 155 weeks of laundering. This is not including staff time!! One thing I have always loved doing is removing jobs at our clinic that people don't like doing....
