Cars emerge rejuvenated from the Gold wash at The Wave Car Care Center, whose eco-conscientious cleaners save millions of gallons of water per year through their use of a reclaim system. Throughout the 10-minute treatment, a team of expert auto scrubbers conditions the tires, combs the underbody with a watery flush and rust-inhibitor treatment, and activates a once-dormant luster with cleansing applications of triple-foaming wax. As a layer of sealant settles onto the exterior, vacuums prowl carpeted pastures in search of debris, crumbs, and shredded For Sale signs. After clarifying window glass, staffers tidy up the dashboard and consoles, freshen interior scents, tend to door jambs, and usher the car to an arid state with an agile hand dry.
The detailers at Mike's Auto Spa designed a signature process to leave vehicles looking like they just came off the line. They start by documenting the car's condition, flipping through the car’s old baby pictures, and thoroughly washing its exterior. They then clean engines and treat leather or carpet interiors. Then it's back to the exterior, where they apply compounds and polishes that leave paint jobs shiny, protect windshields, clean headlights as needed, and shine tires. Finally, they perform a triple-check on every part of the vehicle.
If customers don't have time for the signature treatment, Mike's team also scrubs up vehicles with express services. Vehicles roll through the car wash tunnel, before heading to the vacuum lane, where staffers suck up dirt and crumbs.

The Glo Car Wash's automatic-wash system reclaims more than 90% of its water, making it an environmentally friendly option for cleansing road-weary vehicles. As autos sidle through the top-tier, multi-stage wash, the contoured arms of pressure washers angle over, under, and along the sides, blasting away bird droppings at 900 psi. With all sand and soil sluiced off, German-engineered SofTec washers twist and twirl around the vehicle, removing any residual film. Then, the three-stage detergent application featuring Citra-Glo lathers up the body as wheels rub against soft, spinning polishers during a two-stage cleaning. This system is designed to deep clean the auto and draw out its natural shine and infectious personality without wax or harmful chemicals. Extras such as RainX full-body protectant and Simoniz tire shine can also extend the life of the car's appearance. After a 180HP blow-dry, customers can unholster the Glo's onsite vacuums to hoover out the cabin and trunk and inflate tires to proper levels at the air machines.
