How to Safely Do Your Laundry at the Laundromat During the Pandemic

Laundromat Tips During COVID-19


While non-essential businesses closed down, laundromats were deemed essential and were allowed to keep their doors open. That means that laundromats around the country have had to take extra precautions in how they keep their machines clean and their customers safe. If you are going to be using your Chula Vista laundromat during the pandemic, here are a few tips on how to stay safe.


Sanitize High-Touch Surfaces

The coronavirus can live on hard surfaces for up to three days, so use an alcohol-based wipe to sanitize the door handle, soap dispenser, and any settings buttons you might have come in contact with. Avoid touching your face until you’ve been able to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. Wipe down the inside of the washing machine and dryer before and after loading any clothes.


Practice Social Distancing

Wash your hands often, and stay at least 6 feet away from anyone else who is in there, as per the CDC’s social distancing guide.


Fold at Home

Many laundromats are asking their guests to fold their laundry at home. Shaking the laundry increases the possibility of scattering germs through the air.


Clean Often

If you’re not doing laundry often, the virus may stay in your house. When caring for a sick or high-risk person, ensure that you are keeping clothes, towels, and linens clean.
