The Birches at Chambers


There are five laundry rooms for residents’ use.  For the cottage, the laundry room is to the west of the building next to the trash room. For the West building,  first floor,  the laundry room is to the right of the foyer on the front of the building. For the East building,  first floor,  the laundry room is to the left of the foyer on the front of the building. For both West and East buildings for the second floors, the laundry rooms are located off the elevator foyers.

The laundry machines installed are high efficiency machines which conserve on water and energy use. What this means for you is that you use less detergent per load. Please only use HE labeled detergent or half the normal amount of detergent used in regular washers. Using too much detergent will cause the machines to leak water and soap onto the floor and your laundry will not rinse properly.

Look for the HE symbol on the detergent bottles as pictured to the left.

Please be considerate of others when doing your laundry. Do not leave laundry unattended for an extended period of time as this prevents others from washing their laundry.

Heavily soiled items should be rinsed in the utility sink prior to placing items in the washer. Please be careful placing detergent or bleach containers on the folding table as doing so may soil yours or others clean laundry.

The laundry room is a convenience for all residents, so please help keep your laundry room clean. As always, staff will help you. Call 845-338-7571 if you experience any problems.
