As a car owner, you should know how to choose the right car wash service when you want to have your vehicle washed. There are different types of car wash facilities that use various products. Remember to only choose those services and products that are high in quality and least damaging to the car’s surface.
How to Select a Car Wash Service:
If you have the time and the inclination, wash your car on your own and as this is very cost effective. If you choose to wash the car yourself, clean it in a shaded spot in your yard and keep all your tools and products handy. Items like a hose, a sponge, car wash soap, non abrasive towels, tire shine and wax protectants help you do the job effectively.
Alternatively, if you’re pressed for time, use the services of a hand car wash facility where the car is washed by professionals. This is more expensive than washing your car yourself. The car is vacuumed, hand washed and then rinsed and dried by trained employees. When using a commercial car wash facility, ensure that the soaps they use are exclusively formulated for use on cars and that they’re used along with lint-free, non-abrasive towels. These facilities also use a polishing wax while they soap the car in order to give it a shine after rinsing it out.
You may prefer using a self service car wash if you want to do the car washing on your own, with the least amount of labor. By using a self service car wash, you could avoid washing your car in your yard and reduce the amount of effort you exert to clean the vehicle. All you need to do is feed in a few coins into the slot and operate the water jet and foam brush to get a clean car. You can even take your car to the vacuum bay at the self service facility to clean the interior of the vehicle.
If you want to avoid any damage to your vehicle during the washing and drying process, you can choose to get your vehicle cleaned at an automated car wash facility. Since the washing, rinsing and drying is automatic and touchless, there is minimum risk of scratches by abrasive towels and foam brushes.
You may also use a touchless facility to clean your vehicle. This touchless facility automatically moves your vehicle through a series of wash cycles. Such facilities are completely automated and don’t require human supervision. They can clean hard-to-reach areas that are usually neglected when the car is cleaned by hand. If your vehicle is extremely dirty in places that are hard to reach, a touchless car wash is best for you.
If you have the time, you can choose to save money and have some fun by washing the car on your own. If not, you can choose from one of the options listed above.
