In a world turned upside down due to Covid-19, we’ve seen the resilience of the hospitality industry push back with Covid-related innovations. However, there is one item in the hospitality industry, already in existence, that can aid in restricting the spread of both Covid-19, as well as other germs and viruses.
In recent years, there has been an upward trend of restaurants predominantly spraying and wiping surfaces, rather than covering them, but this could be about to change. Linen table covers or tablecloths, can greatly reduce the transfer of germs between a person and the table. This issue rates much more highly now for restaurants as they increase their cleaning procedures and measures to reassure customers.
A lack of table dressings can greatly enhance the risk of picking up germs or other bacteria lurking on the sides. In a restaurant, for example, bare tables are cleaned or wiped down with a rag at the end of the meal and clean utensils are placed directly on to the surface. This can massively increase the risk of infection. Tablecloths help to alleviate any potential risks, and will kill germs if they’ve been disinfected prior to use.
In addition to preventing the spread of germs, tablecloths also help prevent excessive noise, they protect furniture such as natural wood tables, and they are incredibly versatile and an affordable ways to change the look of a room. The virtues of a table cloth make it a must-have linen product for 2021 and beyond.
