FERNDALE, Wash. — It has been several years since there has been a business in Ferndale where residents could wash and dry their laundry. But that is about to change thanks to a local entrepreneur.

Ferndale Laundry is currently planned to open this fall at 5619 3rd Avenue, the former location of Pioneer Center Laundry and Cleaners.

Ferndale Laundry Owner and city council candidate Mike Cox said customers may be surprised to see how the technology has changed since the last time there was a laundry in Ferndale.

Cox says they will be installing Speed Queen’s next-generation Quantum Touch commercial laundry equipment. The 26 washer-extractors and 16 tumbler dryers will have 7- and 5-inch color screens where customers will be able to choose from options with full descriptions in 30 different languages to tailor cycles to their specific needs.

This new equipment is reportedly able to handle in a single load what would take multiple loads in less efficient residential washing machines. Additional efficiencies come from high-speed spinning cycles in the washers and ultra-efficient tumble dryers that cut drying time. It’s estimated most customers will be in and out in within an hour.

In addition to paying with coins or cash, customers will be able to pay for washing and drying cycles from their smartphones. A smartphone app will also enable reserving machines and configure cycles and then provide real-time monitoring and end-of-cycle notifications.

Cox says the washer-extractors are also very water efficient, filtering and reusing water whenever possible.

In addition to the self-serve laundry, Ferndale Laundry will offer a same-day drop off wash, dry and fold service according to Cox.

  1. Nice! I wonder if the new technology will allow the machines to accept a credit card for payment. Looking forward to seeing the new operation. Congratulations on the new business!

  2. Great!!! Looking forward to having the Ferndale Laundry business come in to town. With the new technology I’m curious as to how pricey it might be. Still Congratulations Ferndale Laundry!!!

  3. This is going to be amazing. Thanks for making such a significant investment in the community. It’ll be nice not having to leave Ferndale on laundry day!

  4. Yay! An apartment we stayed at the Property Manager from Windermere wouldn’t fix our dryer until I called my lawyer friend. He advised me they have to send someone out to fix it. We went months without a working dryer and had to hang them around the house with family visiting. Finally, they paid to get it fixed after I said what my friend said and since we don’t have a laundromat, they would have to recomp us for gas, time and payment to not fix it.
