3 Misconceptions About Laundromats

Laundromats have certainly evolved in recent years. Whether it’s a result of negative stereotypes in the media or a preconceived idea of what laundromats are like from their early days, there are several myths about laundromats that have continued to linger in 2023.

Here are 3 misconceptions about laundromats (and why they aren’t true!).

1. Laundromats are not clean

As with most services open to the public, there’s an implicit rule that those using the space clean up after themselves, and this holds true for laundromats. Sure, there may be the occasional washing detergent spill or wet shoe marks on rainy days, but this does not mean laundromats are unhygienic!

Speede Laundromats have several processes in place to ensure the machines and premises’ are clean and hygienic for all customers:

  • Machines are tap and pay only (so no germy coins)
  • As much as everyone loves our furry friends, Speede has a ‘no pet blanket washing’ policy which complies with health regulations

2. Laundromats are only used by people without home washing machines

While laundromats are a useful place for people who can’t do their washing at home, it doesn’t mean this is the only reason why they are used. Laundromats offer a solution for all types of washing needs and scenarios.

Some common reasons people use laundromats include:

  • Machines at home not being big enough (for blankets, sheets, etc)
  • Waiting on a replacement or repair for their own broken machine
  • The in-laws are taking up the laundry during peak holiday periods like Christmas
  • Wanting laundry cleaned fast by using extra-large machines or multiple machines at once
  • Getting washing done quickly and in one load while travelling

3. Laundromats take too long to complete a washing cycle

With today’s technology, laundromats that use new equipment can complete a washing cycle in less than 30-minutes. Speede Laundromats have new, large commercial machines for your washing and drying. The mega-machines are perfect for getting multiple loads done in a single cycle!
