Citywide Detailing's cleaning technicians never stay stationary for long. Their mission to clean cars sends them to locations near and far, where they wash anything from compacts to full-size SUVs. They can travel to office parking spaces to hand wash exteriors or venture to owners' driveways to detail interiors. For comprehensive on-location cleaning, technicians offer an upgraded deluxe detail service, which includes a clay-bar treatment, a premium hand wax, and a steam cleaning to help seats clear out their pores.
As a member of WaterSavers, a program that recognizes and celebrates car washes that follow eco-friendly practices, Quick Quack Car Wash upholds its pledge to the environment by using only 8 gallons of water, biodegradable shampoos, and acid-free, non-corrosive cleaning products for each wash. Cars can typically traverse the brushless wash in 5–15 minutes, leaving ample time to revel in the attention of soft cloths, undercarriage flushes, and Rain-X treatments that repel moisture accumulation and championship-worthy Gatorade bombings. Quick Quack's 48-hour rain check promises cars a free wash if it rains within 48 hours of their last visit. It also opens its services to community fundraising events.
Committed to keeping cars clean with two-thirds less water than traditional or home washes, Harv's Car Wash delivers eco-friendly car washing that earned the company awards from the Bay Area Green Business Program and Sacramento Area Sustainable Businesses. Reclaimed water undergoes multiple stages of cleaning and proper disposal to meet the standard of water and energy audits. Similarly, the car wash?s brushes and turbo jet dryers are designed to circumvent the finish-damaging effects of home hand washing. Shoe shines are available on premises for customers waiting for their cars.
Though the crew at Scotties Hand Car Wash takes a hard stance against car dirt, they do so with the soft finesse of brushless hand washing and eco-friendly cleaning products. This way, the delicate sweep of human hands—combined with a fluid stream of waxes and conditioners—peels away every blemish and “For Sale” sign without damaging the finish. Services range from quick washes to in-depth details, and the staff complements cleanings with add-ons such as headlight restoration and leather conditioning. The wash complex also features free Wi-Fi, an onsite gas station, and an espresso cafe.
Quick Wash Waterless was born in 2011, when California was in a drought and water was scarce. Why not, the founders thought, start a car-washing business that spruces up automobiles without using water? And they did just that.
Expert technicians travel to locations across Sacramento, toting soft cloths, vacuums, and professional polishes. They gussy up the interior and exterior of vehicles, finishing jobs off with professional waxing treatments and thorough shampoos. They also use a biodegradable formula that waxes and washes your car at the same time. They can service cars parked nearly anywhere within the area, excluding private lots, locked garages, and troll-guarded underpasses. Every wash saves 38 gallons of water, and a portion of the proceeds go towards constructing wells in Africa to provide clean drinking water.
The techs behind Scrub Boys Car Wash polish cars of all shapes and sizes—as well as boats and RVs—with a combination of automated machinery and elbow grease. Their car-wash packages render interiors squeaky clean and lavish shells with clear coat protectant and Rain-X. They take the purification process a step further with detailing services, which include clay-bar treatments to remove tiny contaminants and high-speed buffing to diminish oxidation and scratches. When techs aren't lathering jalopies, they’re restoring plastic headlights, which tend to oxidize over time, helping remove the discoloration that makes it difficult to drive at night or through a nature preserve littered with black panthers. Frequent visitors can join Scrub Boys’ Scrub Club, which equips members with gift cards and free washes on their birthday.
