With a quarter century of experience under its soap-sudded belt, Joymar's automatic car washes guide cars toward a cleaner way of living with an array of treatments. The Super Wash begins with a high-powered wash aimed at cleaning salt and grime from the undercarriage, known for bearing the tenderest cuts of car meat. The body is then treated with a protective conditioner that's triple the strength of the wash's regular wax. The application of rust inhibitor prevents unsightly oxidation, while a fortified clear coat sealer conceals the car in a cocoon of shine and wards off environmental elements that dull paint finish. Finally, 10 touchless, hot-air blowers collectively burst with 750 cubic feet of air per second, in order to dry nearly every drop of water, sans fingerprints and smudges. During colder months, a 960,000 BTU flame heater is used to banish drops of water from the kingdom of the car before they can stage an icy coup d'etat.

Grand Village's stable of technicians systematically preens the pelts of grimy vehicles to restore showroom-quality sheen. Smudges and blemishes are buffed out during a soft-cloth wash and towel dry while crumb-sucking hoses scour upholstered terrain for vagabond bits of lunches from yesteryear. Regaining transparency, windows are washed to illuminate a freshly dusted dashboard and center console, and underbellies receive a meticulous spritzing. Polishing gurus gloss exteriors to a lustrous finish with applications of multiple waxes, including Rain-X and a triple-coat wax to help wagon shells ward off water and kamikaze dragonflies. Purged of road dregs, tires are furbished and shined before wagons get adorned with air fresheners, symbolizing their graduation to the upper echelons of purity.
