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.
As a kid, Wayne Haddad would clean any vehicle he could get his hands on, whether it was his mother’s car, the neighborhood kids’ go-karts and mini bikes, or the Corvettes his older brother loved to work on. It's hardly surprising, then, that he opened Haddad Auto Detail, a company he’s helmed for more than 35 years. Over the years, Wayne has maintained a loyal clientele with his thoughtful car care advice.
Haddad Auto Detail's technicians recommend quarterly visits as a way to maintain a vehicle’s longevity by clearing away the acidic bugs that cling to bumpers in summer and the road salt that eats away at paint in winter. To complement these regular visits, Wayne’s team performs an extensive array of services, specializing in hand waxing and machine buffing to remove scratches. They also administer interior shampooing, particularly accident clean-up services that target stubborn stains on cloth seats from spilled food, carsickness, and pets. Mobile services provide on-location work, freeing drivers to stay at home, at the office, or inside the trunk while having their vehicles cleaned.

Inside the fully-automated facilities at Pepin's Auto Wash, machines lave vehicles 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With today's deal, customers can select either the touchless wash, which uses high-pressure jets of water to cleanse vehicles, or the soft-touch wash, which banishes dirt with polishing brushes. In either case, a soapy undercarriage wash launders caked-on mud from the car's hard-to-reach belly, and a heated or tepid presoak loosens the grip of gluey sap deposits and toy cars clinging to the exterior out of admiration. Spurts of triple-foam polish restore the automobile's youthful luster, evoking the car's memories of carefree joy-riding and playing hooky from driver's ed. Two rinses eliminate all evidence of lather, and a translucent smear of double-bond Teflon shields outer surfaces from sticky particles of dust and grime.
