When slowly inching toward the enormous porthole of Clean Freak Car Wash's façade, drivers may think they’re about to enter an oversized washing machine. Once at the entrance, a member of the Clean Freak staff ushers them into a glowing blue tunnel. Inside, a conveyor belt propels vehicles through multiple stations such as a foam wash and spot-free rinse. For an additional fee, the staff shines tires, throws in an air freshener, and wraps the car in a giant robe.
Special Touch Car Wash was founded to provide working opportunities to individuals with disabilities. For more than 20 years, vocational teachers have led special-needs students through a structured training program emphasizing leadership skills, teamwork, and multistep tasks. These students apply this training while dousing cars with water from a hose and scrubbing them with sponges.
Their dirt-defeating services include the basic wash, which focuses on the exterior, and The Works, which treats autos to a full exterior and interior wash, a full interior vacuum, and a scent of your choosing. Special Touch Car Wash also offers detailing services such as waxing or interior shampooing to keep floor mats from developing dreadlocks.
For nearly three decades, the staff at Danny's Family Car Wash has washed cars using soft cloths, mild, pH-balanced cleaning formulas, and a water-recapturing system that helps conserve resources. Oil changes, hail and dent repair, and detailing services further resuscitate rides at the 11 full-service, automatic locations in the Valley.
Each Francis and Sons Car Wash facility features skilled staffers who cleanse vehicles with biodegradable solutions and perform vehicle maintenance like caruba waxes and vinyl conditioning. Washes, which range from basic rinses to complete interior and exterior makeovers, enlist spacious wash tunnels and soft cloths to scour paint, and hands wrapped in towels and feet gripping blow-dryers to dispel moisture. The multifarious auto stop provides detailing, repair, and oil-change services at the hands of certified auto technicians who also tint windows and butterfly-kiss rearview mirrors for good luck.
The technicians at Paradise Car Spa often think of the cars that come to visit them as members of the owners' families. At the very least, they see the cars as extensions of the owners' personalities. That type of thinking encourages Paradise's staffers to treat the vehicles with care whether they're simply shining tires or meticulously applying a coat of carnauba hand wax. Paradise Car Spa also maintains a conveyor car wash to get customers in and out quickly and to help keep local robots employed.
The car-care specialists at The Arizona Car Wash Company have one goal: to make every vehicle gleam beneath the Phoenix sun. They bathe automobiles with four car-wash packages, which range from the basic wash to the platinum wash with a shower of clear-coat sealant and bug- and tar-remover. À la carte detailing further spruces up cars with services such as brushing and feeding the horses that live inside of the engine. Each of the business’s four locations houses a lobby for comfortable waiting, and some shops are neighbors to destinations such as the Paradise Valley Mall, where guests can hang out while they wait.
