When it comes to household chores, doing laundry is unavoidable for most of us. If you are looking for a way to ease the laundry burden but haven’t been to the laundromat in a while, we’d like to help you know what to expect and keep the expense to a minimum. Top Laundry offers a convenient way to get the job done quickly and effectively.   

Since laundry needs vary widely depending on each individual’s needs, it’s really difficult to estimate the cost. Here are a few guidelines that we hope will give you some idea based on your needs.  

Washing Costs: The cost of using our washing machines ranges from about $1.40 to $3.50 per load. This price variation is due to the size of the machines. We have machines for 1 load at a time all the way up to 8 loads at a time. Most of our guests spend less than $10 for a week’s worth of laundry. Combining as many loads as you can is the best way to save money at the laundromat. It also saves valuable time!   

Drying Costs: The total cost depends on the amount of laundry and the drying time required, which is influenced by the items you are drying. We have machines that can handle between 3 and 8 loads at a time. The average cost for drying is about $1.00 per 10 pounds of laundry. Again, one of the great benefits is how much faster our large machines dry your clothes than the standard homeowner models.  

Additional Services: We also offer services like wash-dry-fold and pick-up and delivery, which can free you from the task of doing laundry altogether! Prices for these services vary but can offer valuable time savings for busy individuals. Your laundry is done, beginning to end, by one person and your laundry is never combined with any other orders. Our professionals treat your items just like they would care for their own.  

To get the most value for your money, consider the following tips:  

Combine as much as you can in one machine - Doing larger loads can be more cost-effective, as larger machines provide a better price-per-pound of laundry. Items with similar care instructions can be combined to save time and money.  

Bring Your Own Supplies - We will happily sell you everything you need, but bringing your own can save you some money. Bulk buying these supplies can further reduce costs.  

Monitor Drying Time- One of the greatest benefits of using Top Laundry is that one of our team members is always there to help with whatever you need. They have done thousands of loads of laundry and can give you valuable advice of how to get the most for your money based on an accurate estimate of what your items actually require.   

Loyalty Rewards- Top Laundry offers a variety of loyalty rewards. They are simple and valuable! Whether it’s the “Frequent Dryer Club”, The “Comforter Club” or the Wash, Dry and Fold rewards, we gratefully give back to our loyal customers!  

We also have snacks and beverages available, free coffee, free WIFI and free smiles!  

If you haven’t been to the laundromat in a while and don’t know what to expect, we would love to see you! Our team members love helping people! It’s never an inconvenience for us. We truly want to serve our community and we always feel great if we can make it a better experience for someone. We hope you will come and see us soon!
