WASH History

WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems has been in continuous operations since 1947. Today, with 25 branch offices across the U.S. and Canada, WASH began as a young couple’s dream to provide affordable laundry services to apartment dwellers in fast-growing, post-WWII Los Angeles. Now, with 65,000 locations, more than 4.5 million people do their laundry in a WASH laundry room every week.

 

Still a privately owned business, WASH embraces its family-owned legacy, culture and dedication to service excellence. However, we also set the pace with the changing times. We’ve pioneered new advances in laundry room technology, found ways to modernize our systems, make the work of our employees infinitely easier and ultimately improve even more on serving our customers’ needs.

 

Some examples include:
• High-tech processing of more than 1.7 billion quarters a year
• Widespread use of energy-efficient machines
• Smart-card payment technology
• Web-enabled remote laundry monitoring
• A FixLaundry mobile app that allows residents to scan a barcode on a broken machine to request service

 

In 2013, we acquired Coinamatic, Canada’s largest provider of multifamily laundry services. This transaction brought together two industry leaders, making WASH the first multi-national laundry company of its kind.
Our team of more than 850 employees continues to uphold WASH’s outstanding reputation for accountability, integrity and customer service. WASH has been named “Best Laundry Service Provider in the USA” by the readers of Apartment Finance Today in every national survey the publication has conducted.
