Granite Auto Grooming has been polishing, primping, and preserving autos with homespun Gloss-It products for more than 15 years. Upon rolling into the parking lot, less-than-lustrous cars (a $295 value) and SUVs (a $420 value) are eyed by a crew of highly trained technicians who can evaluate and prescribe a finish befitting its current level of funk. After removing surface impurities, such as tar, bugs, road pitch, and Cheez Whiz with a special Gloss-It clay bar, the crewmembers go to work applying a series of Gloss-It polishes and protectants, restoring its finish and leaving it with a silky, stubble-less texture. Once sheeny, all road boats are covered by a six-month guarantee, ensuring they’ll retain 80% of their mirror-like appearance, or be treated to a complimentary re-application.
Country Club Auto Spa revamps vehicles with a deluxe car-wash tunnel and the hands of trained cleanliness engineers. Horseless-carriage whisperers soothe and prepare each easily spooked auto before sending it into Country Club’s wash tunnel, where automated washers remove grit and grime from the exterior and inhibit undercarriage rust. Wax, sealant, and tri-coat conditioners maintain the body’s luster and lock in a newfound sense of self-confidence, and jump-suited technicians deliver compliments and affirmations as they carefully hand dry the sparkling finish.
For 14 years, Executive Mobile Car Wash’s friendly automotive professionals have journeyed to grime-bedeviled cars, then pampered them with fast, professional cleaning and detailing services. The one-hour car wash and sealant process begins with an exterior hand-wash, with vehicle scrubbers disrupting dirt’s restful slumber by wiping car exteriors to a spot-free shine. Cleaners open car doors and wipe out doorjambs’ nooks and crannies, then thoroughly vacuum carpet and upholstery and wipe-down interior surfaces to a luminous sheen. Next, rubber road-warriors receive a tire dressing to protect them from pavement’s charismatic pull.
Ecowash Auto Spa's 35- to 45-minute Gold wash destroys car-clinging debris with an assault of foam agents, wheel blasters, and luster-inducing waxes. After a presoak softens exterior tar and dirt, cleansing foams sweep remaining filth from the shell, clear-coat protectants reinforce the finish, and a tri-foam wax snuggles against the body to protect it from wrecking ball high-fives. Meanwhile, wheel blasters dispel puddle scum from the car's rollers, and Wheel Brite dresses them up for joy rides on newly paved roads. As a rust inhibitor armors the underbody to defy oxidation, weather-guard treatments help to defend the driver from poor visibility or skydiving meteorologists. Technicians also head inside the auto, scouring surfaces with a vacuum, outfitting the dash, console, and door panels in dressing, wiping down doorjambs, and cleaning the windows from the inside out.
Terrible Herbst's staff cares for cars and the environment by swiping vehicular surfaces with eco-friendly Blue Coral products. During the ultimate full-service wash, vehicles are scoured inside and out over 20–25 minutes. Valets escort vehicles to the drive-thru tunnel, in which cars luxuriate in a bath of foam. A car caretaker then towel-dries its exterior and takes to the inside, wiping windows, dashboards, and consoles, and vacuuming dirt and Australopithecus-era crumbs from carpets. Wheels emerge from the treatment purged of dirt, and tires debut enameled in a protective dressing. The VIP express car wash with RainX cleanses cars in less than five minutes with a human-operated pre-scrub, then sends them through the underpass to bask in bubbles and a spot-free rinse.
At Alamo Hand Car Wash, customers can enjoy the free satellite TV or WiFi, complimentary soda and coffee, and foot massagers, or stretch on the reclining massage couch in the waiting room. After all, their cars are being equally spoiled. Here, the each vehicle is treated to a gentle but thorough bath, using soft lambs wool mitts and premium soaps and waxes by Meguiar's. And whether treating the car to a quick exterior-only express wash or a detailed interior and exterior cleansing, no machines ever touch the paint's surface.
