F.A.Q. — Frequently Asked Questions

How late are you open?

See individual laundromat pages for each location’s hours.

We now offer 24 hour access at our newest laundromat at 500 Cirby Way in Roseville, but you’ll need to use the door code. Click on 24 Hour Location to get the code, which changes frequently.

What’s the biggest thing I can wash?

Our largest washer holds 100 lbs of laundry. That’s large enough to wash a boat cover or car cover, 4 sleeping bags at once, or 6-8 standard size pillows at a time. Our jumbo machines can accommodate dog beds, patio furniture cushions, and many other things that don’t fit in your home or apartment washer. Because our washers spin so fast, they extract most of the water from these large items so you can take them home and lay them in the sun to finish drying naturally.

Facts about the benefits of an Eco-Friendly Laundromat

  • Using a front-loading washer instead of a top load washer saves enough water to fill a child’s wading pool.
  • Water saved by four front-load (versus four top-load) washes could fill your children’s 30-gallon wading pool, with extra water left over.
  • Using cold water instead of hot for just one load in one of our front-loading washers saves enough energy to power a 32” LCD TV (125 watts) for 21 hours or 3 hours a day for a whole week.
  • Using our 200G (200 times the force of gravity) spinning front load washers extracts so much water it reduces your dry time. Energy saved to dry one load of wash that has been spun nearly dry could power a medium-size (900 watt) window air conditioning (A/C) unit for about 28 minutes.
  • Paradise Laundry’s lighting is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly: Our energy-saving light fixtures save enough electricity in one year to power an oven at 350 degrees, 24 hours a day, for nearly two full months, or one hour a day, every day, for nearly four years.

Above Stats:

  • Assumes 12 minutes saved drying time using specs for Dexter DDA-D30.
  • Assumes 2000-watt oven and calculates 80 watts saved per each of 6 T8 4-bulb fixtures (equivalent) in comparison to T12s.
