Whether riding down highways or parked on the street, cars accumulate all manner of crud in the nooks between their panels and the grooves of their carpeting. Clingy tar and dirt can mar the aerodynamics of performance vehicles, while french fries and replacement wedding rings lost under seats can invite criticism from carpooling coworkers. Car Clinic Auto Salon eradicates such grime with their wash and detailing services, which range from simple interior vacuuming to complete do-overs of doorjambs, exterior surfaces, and trunks.
Named the best carwash by CityVoter in 2009, V.I.P. Car Wash restores radiance to road-weary wagons with an uncanny attention to detail. Each V.I.P. wash ferries besmirched buggies through a sudsy sluicing that cleans with softened water to protect the paint and avoid hard-water stains. After cleaning the hood, roof, windows, and doors, the automated sprayers focus on ridding salt and grime from the underbody before applying a rust inhibitor just like a relaxing robot spa treatment. Next, a clear coat conditioner and protectant are applied before a shiny smothering of tri-poly foam polish leaves a glassy coat that’s slick enough to impress dolphins. Rubbery road donuts are treated to a wheel brightener and tire dressing.
Hurricane Allie’s Bar and Grill satisfies customers’ cravings for smoked meats and bountiful sandwich varieties. The restaurant’s menu of bread-wrapped bites includes the pork-tenderloin sandwich, the grilled-chicken sandwich, hamburgers, and the slow-smoked-brisket sandwich, all paired with crispy, golden fries. On certain evenings, hosted events open up the floor to group events, from poker tournaments to karaoke nights that enable guests to live out their singing dreams in front of an audience of people they’re not related to.
Wielding a spray bottle, the eco-friendly detailers spritz engines and tires with a biodegradable degreaser before wiping down exteriors with soft micro fiber chamois cloths for a stellar hand wash. These seemingly small touches help K & C Auto Detailing Solutions contribute to greener, more eco-friendly car-detailing methods.
Conveniently located in the Goodyear Building at 75th and Metcalf, the team scours cars during detailing sessions, sweeping dust from seats with shampoo cloths, stripping away bugs and tar, and shining exteriors with electric buffers. They also go mobile, and provide lot washing services to dealerships and companies with fleets of vehicles. Committed to environmentally sound cleaning methods, they contribute green services and products to local car-wash fundraisers and use Shamerrific cleaning products to wash cars without chemicals or the sound of Mother Nature's disapproving sighs. The team also offers "wash while you work" services that allow employees to continue working at their desks while K & C detailers polish and cleanse grime from soiled cars.
At Diamond Finish Car Wash & Detail Center, cleaning technicians and detailing crews scour cars’ insides and outsides with a spectrum of wash and detailing packages. Armed with environmentally friendly soaps, triple-foam polish, and clear-coat protectant, the team scrubs exteriors and locks in shine, backing its work with a clean-car guarantee, which gives car owners a repeat exterior wash for $3 should cars get dirty before two days have passed. A spacious gift shop chock-full of trinkets, greeting cards, and novelty mechanic coveralls whiles away drivers’ time as they await their rides.
