Offering four wash levels, Spirit of America Car Wash's automatic wash tunnels groom vehicles for shiny driving 24 hours a day, 365 days per year with Green Line Solutions products. They scour cars with Formula 575, a two-step cleaner that protects the environment with a low pH level and a dearth of harmful ingredients while safeguarding noses with a fresh citrus scent. A proud member of the Chicagoland Carwash Association and the International Carwash Association, Spirit of America scrubs mobile habitats and sturdy parade floats across the greater Chicagoland area with six locations.
For 19 years, Marine-veteran owner Paul Kludac and the car buffs at Detail Kings have harnessed the restorative power of elbow grease during full-service, hands-on car-wash and detailing services. Whether locking in shine with Armor All applications, evicting paint-dulling contaminants with clay service, or hiding minor swirls with carnauba-wax massages, technicians remind outer shells to return to their show-room origins. Kludac personally inspects every one of the tens of thousands of automobiles that leave his facility every year, making sure that the sparkle in each vehicle shows off the staff's meticulous approach. This commitment to car cleaning know-how has earned the shop celebrity clients, including Michael Jordan and the police cars in Public Enemies, starring Johnny Depp.
Don't be alarmed if you see a blue, lava-like substance oozing inside the car wash tunnel at Finish Line Express Car Wash & Detail Center. It's just the Blue Coral foam bath arch, a basic component of each full-service car wash. If the resulting shine from the bath isn't enough to blind your rival demolition derby drivers, the facility also offers details, headlight restoration, and Rain-X and Armor All treatments.
For more than 25 years, Major League Auto Spa's team of automotive experts has been cleansing carriages inside and out with soft-cloth washes and detailing services. The automated washer gently nudges cars along a track flanked by a gauntlet of soap-laden cloths to deliver cars from their grimy fate and encourage wolf whistles from passing buses. Armed with vacuums and a keen eye for crumbs and stowaway dust bunnies, interior detailing crews lavish upholstery and carpets with equal attentiveness. Cleaners also apply glossy wax finishes by hand and smooth away imperfections with orbital buffing machines as auto owners wait in the Internet-equipped lobby, surfing the web for new stuffed animals to suction to the windows.
Professional Mobile Detailing staff brings its soaps, towels, waxes, and polishes to you. Clients can get work done in the office or furiously delete their "Car for Sale" classified ads at home while the detailers tend to the car outside. During their extensive detailing packages, they scrub the outside of the car by hand, using a clean wash mitt and mild detergent, before really getting down to business with Meguiar's waxes, polish, and water-based and high-silicone rubber/plastic dressing. Then they move on to the inside, where they shampoo seats, and carpets, scrub the pedals, and use glass-specific microfiber towels and cleaners to get all grime and streaks off the windows. Customers can also opt for just interior or exterior details, as well as add-ons such as engine detailing and paint-swirl removal.
Professional Mobile Detailing's staff cleans, waxes, and polishes cars in the comfort of their own driveways. They bring their supplies to you, eliminating the need for driving to the car wash or into a lake, and proceed to follow extensive detailing itineraries that leave vehicles looking like new. Their packages include a complete interior and exterior detail, during which technicians wash exteriors by hand with a mitt and mild detergent, polish and wax the finish, shampoo the seats and floor mats, and put the finer touches on the car with conditioners, dressings, and degreasers. They also offer a la carte detailing services and engine detailing, which can extend a vehicle's life.
