At Diamond Finish Car Wash & Detail Center, cleaning technicians and detailing crews scour cars’ insides and outsides with a spectrum of wash and detailing packages. Armed with environmentally friendly soaps, triple-foam polish, and clear-coat protectant, the team scrubs exteriors and locks in shine, backing its work with a clean-car guarantee, which gives car owners a repeat exterior wash for $3 should cars get dirty before two days have passed. A spacious gift shop chock-full of trinkets, greeting cards, and novelty mechanic coveralls whiles away drivers’ time as they await their rides.
All Seasons Car Wash & Detail Service Center inhabits an edifice built as a car-wash facility more than a half-century ago. When the All Seasons team moved in, it upgraded the facility with an automatic track and a wash system that gently spritzes cars with hot water, improving on the age-old method of burying them in snow and waiting for the snow to melt. The ultra-modern wash machine further luxuriates rides with optional upgrades including vacuuming, window cleaning, waxing, and underbelly scrubs. To finish the car wash, the track rolls sedans beneath an automatic dryer to wick away water droplets and mat down any windshield wipers with cowlicks. All Seasons’ auto experts also specialize in detailing services, such as shampooing, hand waxing, and buffing.
Family owned and operated since 1954, A&A Royal Auto Trim stocks a garage full of deft mechanics and technicians who accessorize, clean, and upholster vehicles. Window tinters with more than 10 years of experience apply UV ray–deflecting film to portholes, and experienced detailers revive upholstery, upgrade electronics, and scrub auto bodies from inside a full-service shop. A&A Royal Auto Trim offers its services to all vehicular makes and models including classic cars, custom builds, and family-band tour buses.
A cave stands near the entrance of Aqua Auto Spa. Cars approach slowly, their drivers peering into its dark recesses. Inside, soft cloths burnish vehicle exteriors in a matter of minutes, making them as a shiny as the sun’s mouthful of braces. All washes come with free use of the self-serve vacuums, plus complimentary glass cleaner, wipe-down towels, and dash dusters. Nearby, an industrial washing basin brims with towels, brushes, and grooming shears. Here, dog owners can lather pups’ fur with canine shampoo or style it into a handsome pompadour.
For the full-service Triple Shine wash at Grandview Auto Wash, automatic coupe cleansers buff and polish sullied exteriors before a vacuum-wielding hominid sweeps through the inside. Crusty cars cruise through the shower, where eco-friendly suds shimmy across wheels, windows, underbodies, and hood gargoyles, removing unsightly soils. Expunged exteriors shine like a bronze statue of a socialite's dog after a clear-coat protectant and triple clear-coat polish. Finally, a car concierge wraps wet wagons with a terry-cloth embrace until they are cozy and dry, then hops inside to wipe down consoles, swab windows, and quietly propose new bumper-sticker slogans.
Crystal Clean Car Wash shines and polishes all surfaces of vehicles with high-pressure sprays, foaming presoaks and wheel cleaner, and interior vacuuming at two automatic stations and eight self-service stations. While giving auto bodies a glistening sheen, the wash's extensive filtration system channels all wastewater into a sand-oil separator for future treatment rather than sullying the earth with untreated surfactants and needless erosion. Teams of dedicated detailers meticulously purify the inside and outside of cars, trucks, and SUVs, and the Fleet Program allows squadrons of delivery trucks, company cars, and rented dirigibles to freshen up in the car-wash bays. In addition to restoring paint jobs and removing sheets of dust and grime, Crystal Clean Car Wash supports the efforts of local nonprofits and charities by making its facility available for fundraising car washes.
