Lube Stop has been lauded by both local and national press outlets for its Sustainability Program, which decreases the environmental impact of the shop's auto services. Its signature EcoGuard oil change, for example, refreshes engines with re-refined motor oil. Lube Stop also recycles oil and antifreeze, and it plants two new oil-filter trees for every one it chops down.
Besides eight kinds of oil changes, Lube Stop provides multipoint inspections, tire rotations, wiper blade replacement, and other maintenance and repair services. More than 240 employees?who receive continuous training to keep up with eco-friendly practices?helm the company's 37 Cleveland- and Akron-area locations, all of which offer E-Check emissions-testing stations.
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.
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.
All About Autos’ detailing technicians rely on both scientific potions and old-fashioned elbow grease as their tireless wrists scrub cars with pH-balanced soaps and glazes formulated to remove scratches and dings. Chrome polishing, window washing, and tire dressing populate the detailing roster, joining interior treatments including vacuuming and steam cleaning. Beyond the two- to three-hour detailing sessions, the techs also dress engines, replace broken windowpanes, and stock accessories such as remote starters.
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.
