Tidal Wave Hand Car Wash’s meticulous technicians groom automobiles of all sizes with machineless, hand-powered baths. During each 15–20 minute standard wash, dexterous digits comb across cars’ outer shell, scrubbing away dirt, peeling away road grime, and decoding rebuses drawn onto dusty bumpers. Auto washers duck down to sanitize wheels and tidy up tires, and punctuate the exterior dirt purging with a gentle hand dry. Meanwhile, vacuum-brandishing techs inside the vehicle hunt for small debris or dirt particles on the carpeting and floor mats and pave trails of spotless surfaces across the dashboard and console. The service concludes with a clarifying window cleaning, helping drivers spot roadside hazards or entertain neighboring vehicles with middrive puppet shows. Tidal Wave Hand Car Wash is open from 8 a.m.–7 p.m. Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Saturday, and is closed on Sunday.
Fuller’s attends to the needs of grimy cars and their fresh-scrubbed owners with a wide range of cleaning, detailing, and maintenance services. Four-wheeled recipients of the full-service wash receive interior vacuuming, window cleaning, and towel-drying of the exterior to ensure each car shines as brightly as the day it emerged from its cocoon. Like throwing hot coffee on a coworker, changing your engine’s oil refreshes it and prepares it for a day of hard work, and a tire rotation entertains road donuts with a game of musical chairs in which everyone ends up a winner. With an ultimate protection detail package Fuller’s practiced staff will thoroughly shampoo interiors; bathe and cleanse exteriors with a soft cloth; wax surfaces and restore paint vibrancy; polish and eliminate every offending mote; and sing carols to revive your car’s holiday spirit. For all services, additional charges may apply for trucks, minivans, SUVs, and SUV-sized hamster wheels.
