Even before he had his license to drive, David Hetherington was already busy managing his own car wash business. By the time he was in college, he was spending vacations and weekends detailing the fleets of limo services, auto dealerships, exotic car companies, and nearby battleships, building up plenty of professional experience by the time he opened his own detailing shop in 1989. David works side by side with his employees every day, doing what he loves: taking care of automobiles. Special detailing services preserve and protect a vehicle's shine for weeks to come, with applications of Lexol leather conditioning, sealer wax, or thorough buffing and polishing of chrome and paint jobs.

Committed to the environment as much as they are to customer satisfaction, the auto bathers at Flagship Carwash coddle dusty vehicles with eco-friendly chemicals and the green LEED-certified water system found at their Herndon location. From eight locations across the Washington, DC, area, they vacuum rugs and wipe down dashboards before cars bask in a high-pressure tunnel wash. Technicians also break out the elbow grease for hands-on detailing services, scraping off splattered bugs and tar, buffing exteriors to remove scratches, or spiffing up interiors to obscure werewolf gashes in leather seats. To restore smooth surfaces, they touch up paint on car bodies and remove small dents by popping the metal back into place.

The nautical-themed Pirates Car Wash substitutes the rough seas for delicate wash tunnels whose ebb and flow of soft cloths, eco-friendly cleaning solutions, and microfiber towels bring land vessels to a pampered state of cleanliness. The long reaches of brushless towels and sheets of soap leave underbodies flushed of harmful residue, windows gilded by Rain-X repellants, and chrome as polished as a card shark's lucky cheat mirror. For cars that require more attentive grooming, detailers stand at the ready to dip into the latticework of grills, vents, and panels with waxes and steam cleaners. Pirates Car Wash also offers unlimited wash plans and runs fundraising referral programs that send proceeds to nonprofit organizations.

Q&A with Larry Leigh, Owner/Operator

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?

Our mini-detail package is very popular, as we clean the exterior and concentrate on interior areas that are usually hard to for people clean without the "right stuff." Our staff hand-washes the vehicle for a complete and thorough clean.

Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.

One of our clients is a doctor, and one day he had some friends in town working with the U.S. Department of State?some heavy hitters?who caught him by surprise. He offered to pick them up for the evening, but realized that his dog made his car a wreck. He contacted us at 4 p.m. that day, explaining that he had to pick his friends up at 7 p.m. No problem for the Pop Up Team, as we took care of him by 6 p.m. to save his day.

Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?

Being flexible and being a part something that's good for the environment at the same time.
