Laundry room

Laundry room – The laundry room is a room equipped for washing laundry, usually located in the basement. Nowadays, the term is used for rooms that are intended for the installation of washing machines and/or dryers. In apartment buildings, there are water and electricity connections for the washing machines, which record the consumption via the meters for the individual apartments. This allows each tenant to use a space belonging to their apartment for the washing machine. In the case of communal laundry cellars, it should be regulated who may use the cellar and when.
