The Ultimate Hand Car Wash in Houston

Not to be that guy, but our quality of work is much higher than your typical Houston car wash location down the street (this pretty much applies all our other services like our headlight restoration package). What we typically see from other locations are cars dripping water from their doorjambs and mirrors, streaks on the paint and glass, and tire dressing all over the wheels and tires. If you’re looking for a fast and cheap option, then those will be great- but that is NOT the level of standard we hold ourselves too.

Although it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how to properly wash a car, it does take a certain level of professionalism and skill to make sure you’re 100% happy with the results. There’s some areas of the car wash that we do that you probably wouldn’t even notice unless we pointed it out to you. But because we know what we’re doing and we have a standard in our service, we make sure it gets done.

Our Wash Process

There have been studies across the U.S. where the average car wash can use anywhere between 25 to 50 gallons of water per car wash, evens some tunnel washes can use up to 150 gallons per car! Those numbers are scary. We try to use the least amount of water necessary to clean your car- we feel better that way (same thing goes when we perform out swirl removal service).

Our wash process always starts off with 3 different buckets: Bucket 1 is for the rinsing, bucket 2 is for soap, and bucket 3 is for the wheels and tires. Each bucket has a very specific job to ensure that we don’t mix any of the dirty water with the clean water.

We start with the wheels and tires and try to remove as much dirty and brake dust since that will always be one of the more dirtier parts of the car. We then start washing the car from the top and working our way down. This is a key point to make when you’re washing your car. If you start washing the car from the bottom and work your way up, you won’t be able to see the areas you’ve cleaned or not because the dirty water will simply pass over the areas you just cleaned. This will cause you to have many missed areas alongside your car.

Once we’ve gone through the whole car from top to bottom, we then dry the car off with a microfiber towel AND a blower. We make sure all the water is blown out from the seams, doorjambs, nooks and tires so when you drive off, you won’t have water dripping down.

Common Mistakes About Washing Your Car

By far, the number one mistake I hear people say is, “hopefully it rains so I can get a free car wash.” This is 100% completely wrong. Just because water hits your car does not mean anything is getting cleaned. The reason is actually doesn’t clean your car is because the pressure or force of the rain is no where near the strength it needs to be actually push any of the dirt off. This is especially true if you haven’t washed your car in a while and all the mud and dirt has actually tried on your paint.

The next mistake is the thought that a car wash is just a car wash, no matter where you take it or how you do it. In essence, yes, a car wash is removing the dirt and gunk off your car. But in reality, it can be so much more than that. If you’re a car enthusiast, and you’re getting your car ready for a show, you’re probably going to get the paint looking sweet by either adding a wax on it or even going as far as removing the swirls and scratches (which takes many hours to do so). If you just took your car to any car wash and let them have at it, they would probably ruin all the work you did and your car would look terrible at the car show. On the other hand, if you have a work truck that drives in construction areas everyday, you’re probably not going to care about who does your car wash since you know it’s going to get dirty by tomorrow.
