A new laundromat opened last month in Citrus Heights, with customers invited to drop in for traditional “self serve,” or to drop off their laundry for washing, drying and folding.

The Love Laundry facility is located at 6201 Greenback Lane, and features a large, 5,500-square-foot commercial space. Manager Starla Wahnsiedler told The Sentinel business has been picking up. Wahnsiedler is one of three managers who oversee the region’s five Love Laundry locations, she said.

The business accepts all forms of payment, and offers drop off service. Wahnsiedler described the business as “Clean and family friendly.” The business is staffed from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a last wash time of 8:30 p.m.

A previous report by The Sentinel shows business owner Chris Wahnsiedler renovated the former strip mall last fall. Wahnsiedler said he chose Citrus Heights because of the population density, number of rental units, and number of households with children. He said other laundromats in the area were under-serving customers.

The building was originally constructed in 1961, according to public information on commercial real estate website Loopnet. The property had a net assessed value of $1,050,000, according to Sacramento County Assessor records.

The property has had an eclectic mix of businesses in recent years including a massage parlor, tax services, loan store, lingerie store, and iMaster Tek computer repair. All tenants have vacated the building in advance of the construction project.

Love Laundry is currently the only tenant, and two spaces show for lease signs in the window.

An unaffiliated but similarly named nonprofit called “Laundry Love” also operates in the Citrus Heights area, helping homeless and low-income families by providing funds to operate washers and dryers at certain laundromats.
