Clean Cars of Washington's staff whittles dirt-encrusted cars back down to their clean, fresh-from-the-factory state during 15–35-minute bath appointments. Technicians first wipe muck and mire from the frame's surface, scrubbing every inch until the vehicle looks as radiant as a just-married binary star. Next, they venture down to the tires to peel away layers of highway dust before dispatching vacuums to roam like K9 dogs through the interior, sniffing out crumbs, and leaving surfaces free of unwanted detritus. In an effort to dry off, exterior panels and trim snuggle up into the cleaners' soft chamois rags, which glide eloquently across the car leaving trails of shiny, postbath goose bumps in its wake.
The nautical-themed Pirates Car Wash substitutes the rough seas for delicate wash tunnels whose ebb and flow of soft cloths, eco-friendly cleaning solutions, and microfiber towels bring land vessels to a pampered state of cleanliness. The long reaches of brushless towels and sheets of soap leave underbodies flushed of harmful residue, windows gilded by Rain-X repellants, and chrome as polished as a card shark's lucky cheat mirror. For cars that require more attentive grooming, detailers stand at the ready to dip into the latticework of grills, vents, and panels with waxes and steam cleaners. Pirates Car Wash also offers unlimited wash plans and runs fundraising referral programs that send proceeds to nonprofit organizations.
AutoStar Car Wash takes care of all your vehicle’s aesthetic needs with a range of washing, detailing, and accessory services. A full-service wash tunnel blasts away dirt, muck, and bugs during five wash packages, from the express to the ultimate, which includes an interior vacuuming and dashboard wipe down.
Rides can take advantage of more extensive cleaning with an express or full detail package, including hand waxing, clay-bar treatments, and paint sealant to lock in luster. Aside from restoring vehicular cleanliness, the AutoStar team removes hazy spots from headlights and patches up scratched surfaces. Expertly applied window films save interior upholstery from UV rays that can cause fading, and custom painted pinstripes ready cars for impromptu drag races or appearances in court.
MR WASH is family owned and operated with locations throughout the region, offering full-service or express car wash services. Trading bristly brushes for soft cloths, the Super Wash carefully cares for cruisers with wheel cleanings, clear-coat protectants, a full wipedown, an undercarriage bath, window cleaning, and a vacuuming to undust the interior. The Weather Shield Ultimate car wash, which only aims its cleansing sprays at a car's outer parts, features a soft cloth brushless wash, tunnel wash, undercarriage wash, clear-coat protectants, and a weather shield application to protect it from Mother Nature's water balloons.
Tucked back between shops in the Book Hill section of Georgetown, Detailz Fine Auto Cleaning offers the first-class service you’d expect from an establishment in this tony neighborhood. The clean shop and amiable workers can offer a number of detailing packages, prices of which vary depending upon the size of your car and the services you want included. Full-body cleaning, interiors and trim work are all available, with many services available for quick turnaround. A gold-level complete detail package, starting at $299, is like a facelift for many of the upmarket cars that frequent the shop. But with meticulous attention to detail and stellar results, it’s not hard to see why Detailz is so popular.
Exotic Auto Detail's experienced, professional staff helps man's best metal friend reach its shiniest, cleanest potential with a range of spruce-up services. The VIP package includes two sessions—performed either at Exotic Auto Detail's shop or at customers' homes or offices—that begin with an exterior wash to eliminate freeloading and paint-damaging bugs. Chip crumbs, lost keys, and last year's Columbus Day presents will be vacuumed out of vehicles' interiors and trunks, and windows will get a thorough scrubdown inside and out. After a tire degreasing and dressing, car-care professionals will wipe down dashboards and center consoles and preserve the youthful appearance of leather seats with Blue Luster dressing, a UV-ray shield that helps prevent chips and cracks. After the second visit, autophiles can choose an optional exterior wax and rubber-molding dress or interior steam-clean and dress to give their four-wheeled carriages a tire up in forthcoming beauty pageants.
