  • Why do people use a laundromat?

    A laundromat is a necessity if you live in an apartment or are renting a home without its own laundry facilities. But even if you do own a washer and dryer, many choose to use a laundromat for the savings and convenience.

    A few reasons to use a laundromat include:

    • Save money on home utilities
    • Save time by doing multiple loads at once
    • Wash larger items (comforters, rugs, etc.) that you can’t do at home
  • Are the machines coin-operated?

    We are coinless at Festiva Laundry. All our washers and dryers work with your Festiva Card, which can be used each time you visit Festiva Laundry.  You can load by bills or credit or debit card, and the card itself costs just $1.00 (which is less than our cost).  Just pick up your Festiva card at the front desk!

  • Do you offer wash and fold laundry services?

    Yes, we offer wash and fold services!  Bring your laundry bag to us.  We’ll weigh your clothes and give you a receipt.  Our staff will wash, dry, and fold your clothes for you!  No appointment necessary!  Prices start at $1.29/lb.

  • Is Festiva a 24-hour laundromat?

    Yes, we are open 24/7!  Our facility is bright and clean, with 16 security cameras and an on-site attendant ready to help you with your laundry.

  • What is the best time to visit?

    Weekday mornings are usually our slowest times. We have so many machines that even on busier Saturdays and Sundays, you likely won’t have to wait for an open machine.

  • What supplies should I bring?

    Bring your favorite laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets along, but don’t worry if you forget something. We have laundry supplies for sale at the front desk.

  • How long do the dryers take to dry?

    Our efficient dryers take 30-40 minutes, on average, to dry a load. Learn more about Self-Service Laundry.

  • Can I use Tide Pods at the laundromat?

    Yes! Just throw them in with your laundry as you would with any other washing machine.

  • What is Festiva's privacy policy?

    Festiva’s privacy policy is located on the Privacy Policy page.

  • What are Festiva’s wash/dry/fold terms & conditions?

    Festiva’s terms and conditions are located on the Terms and Conditions page.
