Cars line up outside Complete Car Wash, awaiting their turn to duck under the blue awning and into the automated tunnel. Therein, wash packages lavish cars with triple-foam polish, Rain-X, Simoniz paint sealant, and other products. Technicians then step inside to clean floor mats and spritz air freshener. Complete Car Wash also details rides, waxing surfaces by hand and giving upholstered seats shampoo mohawks. In the new indoor waiting room, a plush, leather couch and flat-screen televisions keep drivers comfortable as they await their cars' return.
The staffers at East Meadow Car Wash & Detailing provide thorough car cleanings with an eye for detail. During quick wash packages and more extensive details, they remove grit from the exterior and debris from the interior, sending vehicles back on the road with reflective finishes and spotless insides.
A red-and-white awning directs vehicles inside Bellmore Car Wash’s garage, where technicians have washed, detailed, and repaired vehicles for more than two decades. Open seven days a week, the shop specializes in washing autos to a showroom-ready finish, but the staff can also tint windows, repair bumpers, and erase minor dents caused by forces such as hail or 95-mile-per-hour tennis serves hit across the ocean from Wimbledon.
Outstretched red awnings beckon to dirt-caked automobiles at Bethpage Car Wash, inviting cars to cleanse their exteriors in a recently renovated and upgraded automated wash tunnel. After staff members vacuum and wipe down vehicle interiors, a conveyor lures cars into a gauntlet of blue and yellow arches that erupt with soapy water and Rain-X protectant. Tumbling neoprene brushes scrub away gunk as a computerized system apportions the right amount of soapy solution to each car's body, wheels, and built-in soap dispenser. After passing through blustery jet dryers, a fully stocked accessory section plies materialistic cars with mats, air fresheners, and wiper blades. During the week, Bethpage Car Wash maintains late-night hours until 10 p.m., helping cars clean up after rolling through late-night rendezvous or egging the principal’s RV.
Amity Car Wash & Detail Center scours vehicles inside and out with four wash packages—the top two of which include a 48-hour rain guarantee—and three detailing packages. Blue Coral and Simoniz products play major parts in the effort to supply every vehicle with a just-cleaned shine. When not drying cars with hand towels or feeding hood ornaments treats for sitting still, the shop's crew helps local schools, clubs, and sports teams raise money and protect the environment through a Think Green fundraising program.
