Everything is done by hand at Miami Car Spa, where cars roll into individual stalls for sudsy hand washes, waxes, and interior cleanups. Patrons can choose from four wash styles, each named for a southern Florida hot spot, such as the quick and simple Miami style, which starts with a wash and ends with a spritz of air freshener. At the top of the list is the South Beach style, during which the crew treats paint to a clear-coat protectant before guiding rides to a shaded tent for a full interior cleanup, including shampoo, conditioner, and french braids for the seat belts.
The automotive aestheticians at TintWorld beautify rides with a variety of detailing, window-film, and modification services. Window-tint treatments offer privacy and sun protection, and are available in custom designs such as flames and skulls. Installation services include electronics, alarms, audio and video systems, and spring-loaded ejector seats. The outlet also supplies do-it-yourself detailers with car-care and performance products.
Now in operation for more than 40 years, Sudsy Car Wash & Detailing Center envelops each visiting vehicle in a shower of soapy bubbles. Foam ferries across windows while a polymer-sealant rinse provides protection against the elements. The detail center uses only Meguiar’s quality products to primp paint or fortify the soft folds of leather interiors. Technicians can pore over the whole vehicle with packages or attack auto’s piece by piece, deep cleaning just the vehicle’s seats, carpets, or rims.
Before being dispatched to client driveways, the licensed and insured mobile technicians at Top Shine Automotive Detailing undergo extensive background checks and training, which is regularly updated through recertification in industry advances, new products, and previously undiscovered species of dirt. The all-around sheen shop restores luster to bedraggled rides with meticulous detailing sessions performed with Maguire products. During washes, soapy hands glide over auto exteriors to evict grime, and waxes, buffing, and swirl removal services leave finishes gleaming and more streak-free than a Victorian-era college campus. Inside, detailers root around for and eradicate hidden dirt, cigarette ash, and dust, prolong the life of leather seats with conditioner, and freshen carpets and upholstery with a cleansing shampoo.

Blistering-hot water steams from the mouth of commercial carpet cleaners as the crew at New Horizon In Home Services obliterates bacteria, allergens, and stains. Combining more than 30 years of experience, technicians use this hot-water extraction method in tandem with nontoxic cleaners while cleaning upholstery, carpets, and mattresses in order to minimize their chemical footprint. The team applies the same conservative, effective cleaning philosophy through each of its pressure-washing, floodwater-removal, and maid services.
Some drivers might only be concerned about the bugs on the windshield, not realizing that the ones clinging to the front bumper can eat through the clear coat. At Lulu’s Car Wash, the crew understand this and use it to remind their customers of the importance of regular washes. Vehicles can run through their high-tech wash tunnel in just three minutes. As drivers pull up to the tunnel’s entrance beneath the smiling-car logo, they can choose treatments that coat auto bodies with UV protectant and iridescent shine. Patrons can also attend to the insides of their rides: the staff performs interior detailing, and the lot is equipped with free vacuums.
