  • Ducky's Car Wash
    Surprisingly enough, it's not how a car looks that will betray whether or not it needs to be waxed—it's how it sounds. If it squeaks when you run a clean, dry terry cloth over the hood, that's a sure sign it needs a fresh coat. This is the kind of expert advice the Ducky's Car Wash team has accrued across 20 years spent caring for vehicles all around San Francisco. And it's not just cars they care for, they also keep an eye out for the environment by reclaiming, filtering, and reusing around 80% of their water. And, they also collect all the runoff from the biodegradable cleaners and waxes they use into their own underground tanks for eco-friendly disposal. Further more, those cleaners and waxes are measured precisely using computerized equipment, a process designed to minimize waste during Ducky's soft-cloth washes. Technicians also perform an extensive selection of detailing services, including conditioning leather seats, removing oxidation from exteriors, and shampooing carpets, floor mats, and back seat bear skin rugs.
