The technicians behind First Impression Mobile Wash & Detail bring more than 15 years of collective experience—along with their own electricity, tools, water, and products—to each sullied chariot they polish. During their mobile detailing services, they wash vessels of land and sea by hand. Then, once exteriors are shiny and clean, they use clay bars to remove contaminants and protect autos from UV rays and oxidation. While waxing, technicians pitch tents to shield paint jobs from sunbeams and to see if someone might give them merit badges. When they aren't purifying greasy engines, removing scratches, and restoring foggy headlights, they’re steam-cleaning home carpets and power washing buildings with mechanical sprayers that remove grime, mold, and posters of despotic rulers.
The dedicated staff at Auto Shine Carwash spends its days ensuring that every car and truck that visits its lot rolls away looking like it did the day it emerged from the assembly line. The full-service car wash's fearless scrubbers descend upon scarily begrimed vehicles, gussying up their interiors and exteriors with meticulous cleansing services and packages. With soft cloths in tow, the auto aficionados peel away layers of dirt that accumulate after hours spent on the road or driving through ant-farm collections. Their mighty vacuums roar while collecting crumbs strewn about interiors, paving the way for a more thorough wipe down. Careful to leave no area untouched, staffers can also cleanse greasy doorjambs and buff windows into a state of perfect pellucidity.
Both Splash Zone and Hurricane Bay restore allure to befouled buggies with soft-brush automatic car washes. Breadcrumb trails of spark plugs lure vehicles into a computerized prerinse that softens up caked-on mud and grime. After loosening sludge, the car wash blankets soggy sedans in soft brushes, allowing drivers seated inside to imagine that they're being eaten by a shag carpet. The wash then dispatches muck from the entire exterior and shines tires before an automatic dryer blasts away excess water. Drivers redeem their coupons at computerized kiosks outside the car wash and can upgrade to higher-priced washes for an additional fee.
