Washateria Frequent Cleaning

Your health and safety are very important to us. We are doing everything we can and taking all the CDC and OSHA recommended steps to clean to maintain the washateria laundromat during Covid properly.

We frequently clean machines, bathrooms, seats, and all surfaces with professional-grade, antibacterial cleaning solutions that may help kill the virus on contact. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our cleaning policies, please contact us .

Some safety tips you may want to consider when washing your laundry also include:

  • Handling soiled items with extreme care
  • Quarantining your affected laundry for a few days away from family members living in the house
  • Use high-quality detergents
  • Wash all clothing on the hottest water temperature setting available to help sanitize


Washateria Social Distancing

The social distancing of a minimum of 6-feet is strongly encouraged for all guests. Masks are also encouraged for unvaccinated individuals or when social distancing becomes difficult to maintain.

If you wish to wash and dry your clothes while maximizing your social distance options, consider visiting us on a weekday, middle of the day, or late in the evening.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding our laundromat’s social distancing policies and how they continue to evolve as more information becomes available through the CDC.

Safer Laundromats

Providing safer laundromats is what we do at 24 Hour Laundry. This was true before Covid and will continue to be one of our top priorities throughout the Covid pandemic. Our safety policies include:

  • Frequent washing and disinfecting of the machines and all facility surfaces
  • Frequent sanitizing of the bathroom areas
  • Recommended social distancing
  • Recommended masks while inside

Person-To-Person Interaction

Person-to-person interaction and contact closer than 6-feet is not recommended when visiting our facility. To achieve minimal contact, consider visiting us during slow hours, wearing a mask, and interacting only with family members and friends you came with.

This includes limiting contact with other people’s belongings, especially any item that has not already been properly washed and sanitized. For a complete listing of person-to-person contact suggestions, please contact us or visit the CDC website.

If you have experienced any Covid-related symptoms within the last 4-6 days, please remain home until you have been symptom-free or received a negative Covid test result.

Should I Use A Wash And Fold Service Rather Than Go To A Laundromat?

For anyone looking to avoid coming to the laundromat in person, we also offer best-in-class wash and fold laundry services throughout Houston, TX. Starting at $1.59 per pound, this can be an excellent option for sick or otherwise immune-compromised individuals who do not currently have Covid.

If you have experienced Covid symptoms or have tested positive for the virus, please let our crew know so we can take the appropriate care options as recommended by the CDC for handling your items.

We recommend you leave your clothes out a few days, which should kill any remaining virus before your pickup is scheduled.

Please consult your healthcare provider or the CDC website before handling any clothing you know has come in contact with a Covid patient.

For best results, we recommend washing your whites separately to avoid that grey-dull look that occurs when dyed clothing items leech their color in the wash. If you need to mix in whites and colors in a single load, try washing them on cold to prevent some fading.

If you are concerned about colors fading when you do your laundry, you can follow some simple tips to keep your colors more vibrant. To begin, always select the cold setting for your water. Choosing cold water temperature will keep clothing fibers closed and will help minimize fade. You can also try permanent press or gentle cycles to limit wear on your clothes.

Washing “dry clean only” clothes using normal washing machines and dryers is never recommended. If you need assistance washing your dry clean only garments or household items, please contact us. We can help assist with the pickup and delivery of your dry cleaning to help avoid damage for an additional charge.

We offer several detergents and other stain removers on location for purchase to help remove unwanted stains from your clothes. Soaking stains for at least 30 minutes before washing may also help to remove tough stains before placing them in the washer. Selecting hotter water temperatures and adding the appropriate detergent should also help remove most stains from your clothing.

Guests are responsible for their own property, including clothes left in the machines. We recommend staying nearby to help supervise your wash and ensure all items remain in your possession throughout your visit.
