Is it safer to wash your car by hand at home?
Rags and sponges used in driveway washing inevitably become impregnated with tiny particles of grit and can scratch your vehicle’s surface. Furthermore, garden hoses typically have inadequate water pressure to remove all the soap film, letting it ‘bake’ into the finish and work its way into the paint for days afterward. In fact, professional studies have shown that the good old driveway car wash is one of the worst things that can happen to a car’s factory paint job.

Our undercarriage treatment removes salt, sand and other road contaminants that are present year round. The undercarriage of your car also takes tremendous punishment from small stones that are kicked up by your tires. These stones bombard the undercarriage and nick your undercarriage’s protection and may expose bare metal. Once rust gets a foothold it will spread regardless of the protection.
