Delta Sonic Car Wash renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.
Since Dr. Julie Klarich has 35 years of field experience, she's had time to develop a repertoire that draws from chiropractic, naprapathy, Chinese medicine, and massage treatments.

Dr. Klarich's staff also targets digestive complaints, headaches, and menopause with a holistic approach that relies on herbal remedies, which clients can purchase from the in-house store.
VIP Express has been in the business of sparklizing autos since 1968. During each of two 20- to 30-minute detailing sessions, an exterior wash and hand-spray waxing give steel steeds a bodily shine to reflect back the jealous looks of dingy mopeds and besmirched dune buggies. Inside-and-out window polishing invites second-guessing about glass's existence, and scrubbed wheels and rims outfit each car with fancy new footwear. Inside the car, a vacuum picks up finely aged potato-chip crumbs, and shampooed floor mats and conditioned consoles provide a pristine ridescape for lengthy road trips and quick treks to the taxidermist.
Premier Car Wash's The Works full-service package ($24.95 at Forest Park, $26.95 at Arlington Heights) gives the most mobile member of the family a thorough scrub-down and sort-out. Both sides of each of the car's windows will be cleaned, while the vehicle's interior will see its dashboard, cup holders, console, and floor mats vacuumed, brushed, washed, and flossed as needed. Exterior-wise, the car's shell will receive a soft cloth wash and a fluffy towel dry, and Premier Car Wash's squad of horseless-carriage whisperers will apply brake-dust remover, paint conditioner, a clear coat sealant, and body gloss. Tires will be shined and rust inhibitor will be added to the car's undercarriage, with an air freshener leaving your car with minty-fresh breath.
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.
When your car smells like the dog has been driving his pup pals around after a day at the beach, Platinum Hand Car Wash ousts the odors with specialty antibacterial cleaning. In fact, the technicians are trained to hide any evidence of a canine presence during detailing services, plucking pet hair from upholstery and polishing away paw prints from the console. They also work hard to get exteriors gleaming, shielding color with clear coat protectant and cleaning tires and rims by hand.
