Armed with their in-house line of cleaning products, Downey Company Protec's detailing technicians clean vehicles during in-shop and mobile detailing services. They fend off grime with hand washes and waxes, or execute the shop's signature treatments to fortify vehicles against hindrances including UV rays, corrosion, or carpet stains shaped like a disparaging driver's-ed instructor. While waiting for services, customers can nab bottles of Protec's products?car-wash concentrate, exterior gloss preserver, or spot remover?for at-home auto pampering.
Spitzer Autoworld has been providing exemplary auto service for more than 100 years, having gotten its start selling and leasing Ford Model Ts. With today’s deal, soiled street wagons can ungrunge their outsides for the foreseeable future with a quintet of washes ($12 value each), during which their exteriors will be lovingly cleansed of accumulated grime and restored to factory-fresh spotlessness. Dirt-averse drivers can also opt for just one exterior clean but supplement it with the added perk of a standard oil change ($35 value) to re-lubricate crusty engines and inhibit corrosion, plus a 27-point auto inspection ($45 value) to ensure the car still has at least 27 parts.
When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.
In 1981, Seal Plus Auto Detail sprang from the minds of two buddies whose love of car care inspired them to become business owners. Though co-founder Kurt Schuster became the sole owner four years later, he made it his mission to treat each customer like a friend. A commitment to customer service drives each interaction at this friendly shop, where attentive technicians deep-clean cars, trucks, and vans in a four-bay garage filled with buffing machines, sealants, and leather conditioners.
During the signature Seal Plus Detail, the technicians vacuum and shampoo the seats, mats, and trunk, then tidy the door panels, dashboard, and console. After wiping down the windows, they sends the vehicle to the adjacent Seal Plus automatic wash, where soft foam brushes gently erase dried mud and milkshake stains earned during duels with insolent ice-cream trucks. The service concludes with a buffing, a waxing, and, if desired, a high-five.
Wash-Works Car Wash's touchless-cleansing system purifies vehicles' exteriors in 180 seconds. During a car's three-minute vacation, powerful jets spray its exoskeletons with a triple-foam solution and wax to imbue a shine more luminous than the well-angled glare of a golden watch. A chassis bath meticulously tickles underbellies to remove built-up dirt, debris, and salt. After a rinsing, staffers release a pack of towels that cling to exteriors and soak up residual water with a thirst at once ferocious and gentle.
