Vehicles roll into Nashua Car Wash & Detail Center's 120-foot tunnel of closed-cell foam and soft-cloth washing coupled with high-pressure rinsing before making their gleaming exits on the other end. For a personal touch, car owners can refresh rides in six double-deep self-service bays equipped with high-powered vacuums, or turn their cars over to the center's skilled sanitizers for a detailing session. Technicians wash and hand wax exteriors, clean tires, and apply wheel treatment before evicting grit and grime from interiors with an all-over vacuuming and wipedown for the dash and console, allowing drivers to transport rare dirt collections without fear of contamination.
Every day at JetStream Car Wash, man and machine work together to achieve a common goal: to maintain the aesthetic value of every car that rolls onto the premises. The team executes hands-on washing for cars, minivans, and SUVs, wiping soft cloths over car exteriors while a mechanical arm contours the sides with a high-pressure spray.
In automatic car washes, cars are pulled through a controlled downpour that can include Simoniz coat protectants with Teflon, as well as triple-foam polishes and sealer wax.
At more than a dozen 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.
Shield System Car Wash's three locations peel off automotive filth with soft cloths before slathering vehicles with shine-enhancing layers of foam, wax, and sealant. The five-minute wash whittles caked exteriors down to the original shape and showroom shine with triple-foam soaps and underbody rinses. Wheel and rim are cleansed with Tire Shine, plucking debris from car's lower extremities before applications of Shield sealant and Shield vivid wax glaze the car shell to give it a smooth, shiny veneer. Finally, doses of Shield ultrashine sealant cling to the finish to defend its sparkling luster against dirt and hitchhiking paparazzi.
With its pitched roof, large windows, and red-brick exterior, Village Detail recalls the image of a quaint suburban home. Inside, cars and trucks purr contentedly as technicians wash exteriors and vacuum interiors. The shop's ? la carte services include enzyme odor remover and Rain-X treatments, which repel water more effectively than dipping cars in salad dressing.
All it takes to transform a dirty vehicle into a clean chariot at Acton Car Wash is 120 feet. The facility's modern Belanger car-wash system uses soft cloths and a barrage of foam polishes, sealer waxes, and chassis cleaners to rinse away filth and grime. Regardless of the level of the wash, each visit ends with a staff member meticulously drying the car by wiping it down with a hand towel and using a crazy straw to blow away leftover water droplets.
