SpitzerCares.org hopes to fund a million meals in 2012 through food pantries, shelters, kids’ cafés, and backpack programs. For every dollar it earns via community car washes, donations, and fundraising events, SpizerCares.org can provide four meals to northern Ohioans in need. Patrons can keep up with the organization’s progress online as a ticker shaped like an apple tallies the number of meals SpitzerCares.org has shelled out so far this year.
D&C Auto & Truck Detailing is owned and operated by Marines who emphasize thorough workmanship. They bring their wax, buffers, and shampoo to each client’s home or office, and they perform all of their services by hand to ensure that every speck of dirt and every smudge is wiped clean. In addition to detailing, they also offer basic landscaping and snow-removal services.
The Kuhns' long line of entrepreneurship began in 1920 with a Sinclair Gas Station. Today, under it's third generation of family ownership, Jerry Kuhn's Kwik Car Wash is a full-service car wash that's been shining up Cleveland-area autos for the last 60 years. The Kuhns are still at the helm with a skilled team providing services such as exterior washes, interior vacuuming, and tire dressings. The wash techs clean cars quickly with basic washes or can spend up to one hour executing more thorough detailing. During those more thorough details, they glaze exteriors with Simoniz Hot Wax arch to bring out the paint job's original showroom color. Then, they make the interior sparkle by shampooing the car's carpets and dreadlocks and wiping down the dash and console.
Mother Nature causes many things to lose their luster, especially the glossy exteriors of automobiles. Extreme Auto Detailing’s crew addresses that problem with every detail session. After hand washing cars, they tackle hard-to-see debris with clay bars, removing oxidation, tree sap, and lollipop sticks. They also employ a orbital-wax-finishing process to restore the shine. The inside gets the royal treatment, too, from the carpets to the glass to the dash.
Wheely Clean Car Wash's family of facilities keeps Cleveland-area rides looking their best. Engineered by trained attendants, each wash uses environmentally friendly products, and begins with a hand steam that preps outer surfaces for a cleaning and releases any stubborn paint wrinkles. Vehicles then freely roll through the sudsy process, which includes free vacuuming in Parma or the option for detailing services in Northfield. Wheely Clean also operates as a discrimination-free business, meaning owners never pay more when a full-size SUV, van, or giraffe's limo needs a scrub.
Cogar Auto Detailing's professional cleaning techs welcome motorcycles, cars, boats, and SUVs into their 2,500-square-foot facility, sending vehicles back to their waiting owners in a pristine, spotless condition. During the process they'll dress tires and wheels, vacuum and shampoo floor mats, and condition vinyl surfaces. This multistep, intensive detailing package is more effective than driving through an ordinary automated car wash and safer than driving up Niagara Falls.
With more than nine years of experience in vehicle beautification, Northeast Ohio Auto Spa’s technicians return cars, motorcycles, and boats to their showroom states. Services range from comprehensive exterior cleanings to the White Glove package, which gently banishes dirt and dust with safe cleaning products to protect delicate fabrics and allergy-prone doves nesting in the cup holders. Yet the true character of these technicians lies in the details of their services. The car coddlers wash every vehicle by hand and finish their Sunny Day package with an indulgent three-step protection treatment: a polish with a high-speed buffer, a wax to seal in the protection, and a liquid wax for a smooth finish. They also get under the vehicles, sacrificing the cleanliness of their shirt to degrease the chassis and remove oxidation from the rims.
