Delta Sonic Car Wash‎ renews tarnished transportation with an innovative touchless car-wash system that automatically guides vehicles through a tunnel of high-pressure sprays and overhead buffing cloths. The hands-free wash massages mild lotions into paint jobs, leaving vehicles with sparkling, fingerprint-free finishes that are backed by a five-day guarantee. Detailing technicians do get their hands dirty as they make use of more than 100 hours of training to dote on vehicle interiors and exteriors with products from ValuGard, Aquapel, and Blue Coral. The team wields AOCA certification know-how when injecting engines with oil and devising rustproofing treatments that avoid drilling holes or covering corrosion in zit cream.

Whether they’ve just taken a bath in the soft cloth wash tunnel or flung open their doors for a full detail, cars leaving Arlington Car Wash and Detail hit the street with a sparkling clean look. The facility’s tiered car wash packages run the gamut from full service washes to the works double wash, which applies a suite of products such as Rain-X surface protection and Simoniz triple conditioners and tire dressing. Detailers comb through vehicles that need extra attention, coaxing shiny colors from the finish with polish and wax as well as shampooing the seats and carpets until they’re clean enough to build a chemistry lab on top of. Motorists may truck through the wash seven days a week, and can swing by on their birthday and be the beneficiaries of a free platinum wash.
