A car wash is the process of the exterior of a vehicle being washed thru a state of the art car washing tunnel. A car wash consists of soap, high pressure jets, wash mitters, neoprene foam combo wraps, wheel cleaner and double jet blowers. Cars go into the car wash dirty and come out clean!
A full-service car wash comes with a vacuum, car wash and is hand dried by a professionAl detailer while you wait.
An express car wash comes with a self-vacuum, drive-thru car wash and express dry while you sit in your car.
A car wash cleans a car thru the automated car wash process and is dried by hand with a basic interior vacuum and wipe.
A detail is a more in-depth cleaning of specific areas of the car or a complete detail cleans the whole car. A complete detail includes: exterior clay bar, orbital/polish/buff with hand wax and interior shampoo and conditioner.
A detail costs more and takes longer then a car wash but your car will be much cleaner with a detail.
All our customers have different car wash needs depending on how much they drive their car, if they have kids or dogs, if they park in a garage, if their car is black (black cars look dirtier then other colors) and everyone has different standards of cleanliness. A weekly car wash is recommended to maintain a clean car.
In order to maintain a clean car we recommend a yearly complete detail and seasonal hand wax and Interior Super Clean.
Interior Super Clean comes with a car wash, extra vacuuming, interior cleaning and interior conditioner. For dirty interiors a complete interior detail is recommended.
A complete interior detail comes with interior shampooing of seats, carpets, dash, cup holders, doors and panels. Interior conditioner is applied to non porous surfaces for a clean matte look. we don’t detail headliner ceilings or computer screens because they are too delicate and damage easily.
A complete exterior detail comes with a custom hand wash, clay bar, orbital/ polish/ buff and hand wax. Add ceramic coating for long lasting protection and shine!
A custom hand wash uses high pressure water, soap and wash mitts to wash the car. A hand wash does not go thru the car wash tunnel and is performed in the hand wash area and dried in the detail center.
A clay bar is a special composite made to deep clean and revive car paint. Clay bar removes heavy contamination such as tree sap, bug residue, road grime, overspray, tar and oxidation.
A hand wax is a special synthetic coating made primarily of carnauba and applied by hand to the exterior of the car. Wax protects the clear coat from UV rays but doesnt last as long as ceramic coating.
Ceramic Coating is applied after a complete exterior detail instead of wax. Ceramic Coating is like a fine layer of protective glass that covers the paint, trim and windows. Ceramic Coating lasts longer then wax keeping your car shinier longer!
Yes, you can wash a ceramic coated car in the car wash. Ceramic coating makes the car easier to wash and dry!
Lava Shine is a decontaminate that flows over your entire car as you enter the car wash. Lava Shine is stronger then soap leaving your car cleaner and shinier!
Rainbow Wax is a triple foam polish that shines and protects your entire car!
RainX is a water repellent that rains over your car at the end of the car wash process. RainX is hydrophobic, repels rain water and makes it easier to dry your car!
Ceramic Seal is a ceramic based sealant that protects and shines your entire car. Ceramic Seal protects against pollutants, road grime and UV rays.
Tire dressing is a silicone protective treatment used on tires. Tire dressing keeps your tires black and shiny!
If your car still looks dirty after a car wash it may need a detailing. If the inside has dog hair, sand, stains, dirt, grime, scuffs, fading etc. we offer a complete interior detail or Interor super clean. If the exterior has water spots, oxidation, sap, grime, pollen, bugs, light scratches and swirls we offer a complete exterior detail with clay bar, orbital polish buff and wax or upgrade to ceramic coating.
If you are not satisfied with our service ask for the manager and we will be happy to redo any service you paid for or use the value of what you paid toward a detail.

No, a car wash cannot crack a windshield. A windshield can split during a car wash only if there is a preexisting condition like a rock chip. Rock chips on the edge of the windshield and often out of sight are easiest to crack. A rock chip is more likely to split on a hot day because when water touches a hot windshield with a preexisting condition the windshield can contract and a crack can form. A cracked windshield is the most common insurance claim and comprehensive insurance policies will provide no fault windshield replacement coverage.
