Empire Auto Detailers' skilled technicians strike fear into the scratchy, whirring brushes of automatic car washes everywhere. These dedicated detailing experts roam the DC area ready to perform fully loaded service packages that incorporate biodegradable carpet shampoos and steam cleaners, paint sealants that last from three months to one year, and waxes that leave cars with the sleek, wet look of a seal zooming down a Slip 'n' Slide. Ever ready to help autos in need, the technicians lend their careful hands to tint windows. Meanwhile, waiting customers can enjoy the shop's free Wi-Fi, and sip on complimentary coffee and tea.
The Auto Spa lavishes ordinary rides with the careful attention normally reserved for celebrity coupes and supermodel Ts. Your Ultimate Works Wash begins with a thorough, environmentally friendly wash, applied with soft cloths to prevent scratches, while an underbody flush rinses dirt and debris from your car?s sensitive underbelly. Wheels will be left looking shiny and new after a wheel blaster service and tire dressing, while a triple foam polish, spot-free rinse, and towel drying rid besmirched auto bodies of dirt and water spots, and also protect against unjust road-pirate mutiny. After locking in your car?s newfound radiance with a protective layer of sealer wax, the careful technician will then move inside, wiping down the dashboard, door jambs, and glass, before vacuuming all floor carpets, floor mats, and upholstery to rid them of dirt, dust, and hibernating marmots.
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.
Seven cosmetic car-care packages attract soiled vehicles to Performance Window Tinting & Auto Detailing's shop, where dedicated motor maids vacuum, hand-wash, wax, and buff them until they're clean and idling happily. Thanks to the garage's tinting services, drivers can hide their autos' insides from prying eyes once technicians equip windows with SunTek or H?per Optik films. The vehicle doctors also perform a number of auto-body repairs, patching up hail damage, fixing windshield chips, and nursing black headlights received in fights with bullying mail trucks.
The techs at Elite Auto Image trick out, clean, and restyle roadsters. Their custom body work, rims, and HID lighting improve the exterior look, and their Katzkin leather interior kits cover seats with assorted colors and custom logos. Techs use computer technology to precisely cut premium window films to block UV rays,and signs and graphics to display company information. After they install stereos, entertainment systems, and Bluetooth integrations with products by Pioneer, Alpine, and Sundown Audio, they back their work with a lifetime guarantee. They can also install security systems to protect autos from robbers and remote starters that warm up or cool down interiors before drivers venture out to capture their would-be robbers. Meanwhile, their mobile detailing crew washes and waxes autos by hand and scours sullied interiors on location.
