Though it has adopted advanced technology in its cleaning tunnels, Waves Car Wash still powers some of its services with the original drier: the sun. On the roof are 160 solar panels that soak up rays, fueling up to 20% of the facility's electrical output. The panels reflect Waves Car Wash's emphasis on green initiatives—others include biodegradable cleaning products and a recycling system for waste water. The shop also channels its vehicle-sprucing expertise to benefit charitable programs such as Wash for a Cause and Wash Away Thirst.
Meticulous treatments and a familial ambiance have enabled the wash spot to achieve its current level of altruism. Car washes ranked from Basic to Extreme glamorize vehicles with water, wax, and wheel pampering. Detailing, buffing, and headlight-restoration services leave cars looking so flashy that they'll begin attracting disco balls. Enamored patrons can even join the Always Clean Unlimited Wash Club, which grants them infinite cleanings in exchange for a monthly fee.

Akiki & Sons' skilled technicians upgrade the appearance and performance of automobiles, whether by polishing exteriors, dishing out oil, or rebuilding wrecked bodies. Up to 5 quarts of oil slake parched pistons as the engineers turn their eyes to a full front-end check of the vehicle, lubricating door latches and slicking their extreme slip ‘n’ slide. While under the hood, workers eject old oil filters from the ring to replace them with fresh new recruits ready to fight off gunk and grime. After checking tire pressure and fluid levels, mechanics listen to the car's pulse, which usually indicates that one has in fact been driving an elephant. The cinder-block-and-cement façade of Akiki & Sons' full-service garage conceals its wealth of tools and powerful hydraulic lifts, which were invented to help Victorian-era ladies undress. Red and green stripes race each other across the length of the building, adding interest to the whitewashed walls and glass-encased lobby.
At locations throughout the northeast, ScrubaDub Auto Wash Centers' computerized wash tunnels and detailing pros spiff up cars with advanced technology and minimal environmental impact. The robotic wash systems and photoelectric sensors not only clean finishes with a gentle, soft-cloth technique, but they can target white walls, wheels, and chrome with site-specific formulas. The eco-savvy automated systems also consume less water than home washing and recycle the water used to clean the wheels and undercarriage. Biodegradable SuperGlo soap keeps the run-off free of harmful compounds before it is funneled down the proper treatment channels, where it can't pollute neighborhood storm drains or be used to test the resiliency of carnival goldfish.
The centers' innovative equipment and Earth-friendly practices have earned them the title of Best Car Wash from CityVoter for three years running. Some locations also boast separate interior cleaning bays to address filthy dashboards and seats.
