Late Night Laundry: The Backstory

This laundromat has been in Los Angeles for over 30 years. I have heard the stories of how it used to be a 24 hour laundry, and when I assumed management in 2014, it was open until 12am. Then COVID hit in 2020, and all the rules changed. It was a struggle just to keep the doors open, let alone provide attended service past 11pm with little to no customers. As time wore on, financial necessities meant last wash was at 10pm… then 9pm… and ultimately 8. As the owner, I took on working the night shifts, and on one particular night, a customer mentioned that they “usually went to the laundromat down the road, because they are open until 11pm”.

The competitive spirit in me didn’t like to hear that one bit! And of course I’d always felt bad turning away those occasional people who came at 8:30 and just wanted to get their chores done. But I’ll be honest- the thought of staying until 12am every night wasn’t very appealing either!

And then the ‘Light Bulb’ moment came.


You see, prior to owning a laundromat, my entire adult career was in the security industry (that’s the profession nobody knows what it means when you tell them), but in short, it’s about controlling who goes in and out, and keeping those that are in safe. My husband is also in the industry, so when it finally hit me, I must admit I felt a bit silly for not thinking of it earlier.

That idea led to action which led to implementation, and now Carson EZ Wash has brought about a significant transformation in the 24-hour laundry industry. Our innovative access control system has changed the way our customers utilize 24 HR laundromats, making them more accessible and convenient.

Laundry 24/7: The Access Control System

The access control system is a unique feature that sets Carson EZ Wash apart from other 24-hour laundry options. This system allows customers to enter the laundromat at any time using a free access card, ensuring a bright and secure environment for the 24-hour washing and drying.

The main challenge for a laundromat when considering being open 24/7 is how to control who gains access after hours. Unmanaged, 24 hour laundry access could easily result in encampments and late night illegal activity. So the core need when deciding to shift to a 24 hour model was to be able to be selective about who could come and go after hours.

The Free 24 Hour Laundry Access Card

The free laundry access card is a game-changer in the 24-hour laundromat industry. This card allows customers to enter the laundromat at any time, ensuring a secure and bright environment. The best part? The card is completely free!

The Secure and Bright Environment

One of the main concerns for customers using 24-hour laundry services is security. Carson EZ Wash has addressed this concern by ensuring a secure and bright environment for its customers. The lights in the laundromat are tied to card use, staying on for an hour and a half after each use.
