Trademark Auto Detailers hauls its entire arsenal of VOC compliant, 100% biodegradable cleaning products to clients' homes and businesses. That way, vehicles don't have to waste gas or even change out of their pajamas as technicians hand wash them right in their own driveways, reviving paint and trim with a clay bar, high-speed wax, and chrome polish. For grimy interiors, treatments such as plastic and vinyl dressing and shampoos help cabins and backseats rebound from food spills or muddy shoes. Basic washes can be enhanced with extras from pet-hair removal to headlight restoration, and for an extensive overhaul, technicians can even clean the car's engine or apply a protective finish to interior fabric.
The technicians at Kustom Window Tint & Motorsports perform warranty-backed tint jobs that block out 99.9% of all UV light. During the approximately 1.5-hour procedure, experienced tinters carefully outfit all windows—save the windshield—with either Johnson- or Global-brand window film for a sleek look that can cut down on glare from the sun, headlights, and prison searchlights. Tinted windows can also cool interior temperatures by up to 78%, decreasing the rate at which seats, wood trim, and dashboards fade. Kustom Window Tint & Motorsports is open Mondays–Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The 1958 Chevrolet Impala’s black paint had seen its fair share of dirt, but then again so had the detailers. They had traveled from driveway to driveway—a method perfected by Louis and Clarke—cleaning all types of vehicles along the way. This day was no different. They hauled their wax, cloths, vacuum, and cleaning products up the driveway and next to the vintage ride. A few hours later, after a hand wash, hand wax, and bug-and-tar-removal treatment, they wiped down the last window and stood back to admire the sparkling finish. They snapped a photo, took one last look, and headed back to Bridges Auto Detailing to await their next mobile assignment.
The technicians at My Car Wash travel to driveways throughout the Baltimore area, armed with powerful soaps, soft cloths, clay bars, and other detailing tools. The mobile shop's four detailing packages, named for precious metals such as silver and unobtainium, treat cars of all sizes to hand washes, spray wax, leather conditioning, and other spruce-up services. In addition to detailing vehicles, My Car Wash also removes overspray, bumper stickers, pet hair, and odors, and fortifies carpet with antistain protectant.
Next Level Handwash Carwash spruces up metal chariots with five different levels of washing that remove dirt and oil by hand and shine car coats so that their hides resemble that of a seal catching waves atop a newly waxed surfboard. During services, patrons relax inside one of two lounges, staring up at plasma TV screens instead of down at their watches. Car-wash customers can also request mobile service, which dispatches Next Level car cleaners to home driveways so washes can be witnessed through the venetian blinds in your living room. Next Level also offers paintless dent-removal services and auto detailing, in addition to pickup and drop-off services.
