Clean Cars of Washington's staff whittles dirt-encrusted cars back down to their clean, fresh-from-the-factory state during 15–35-minute bath appointments. Technicians first wipe muck and mire from the frame's surface, scrubbing every inch until the vehicle looks as radiant as a just-married binary star. Next, they venture down to the tires to peel away layers of highway dust before dispatching vacuums to roam like K9 dogs through the interior, sniffing out crumbs, and leaving surfaces free of unwanted detritus. In an effort to dry off, exterior panels and trim snuggle up into the cleaners' soft chamois rags, which glide eloquently across the car leaving trails of shiny, postbath goose bumps in its wake.

Herb Gordon Volvo scrubs, buffs, and polishes each car under its care to leave virtually every inch of vehicle unsullied inside and out. During a four-hour full detailing, the latest products caress the vehicle's exterior as it's cleaned, buffed, and waxed, and an interior shampoo creates a hospitable environment for backseat drivers, backseat passengers, and front-seat cupcake peddlers. The dealership's experienced detailers dress the tires to a handsome gleam, and the engine is thoroughly divested of grime and debris. If customers wish, the staff can employ the deodorizing powers of an electronic air purifier to clear the interior atmosphere of smoky odors and bad vibes.
