Fresh water is a precious and vital resource. As the human population expands, environmentalists work harder to conserve this resource. However, your car’s exterior needs washing to remove contaminants that will damage your paint and finish. Is there a way to protect your vehicle and the environment at the same time? Certainly! Using Xpress Lube of Kernersville’s Turbo Wash can do both.
Comparatively, we recycle a higher percentage of water than other car washing services. Yet, we also use products and techniques that are gentle on your vehicle. Plus, we’re conveniently open Monday-Friday 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM, and Saturday 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM. While on Sundays, we’re open 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
Washing Your Car At Home – Environmental Concerns
Typically, many consumers skip the commercial carwash preferring to do it at home. Unfortunately, self-cleaning your car presents some environmental concerns. Without a doubt, commercial car washes are better for the environment.
First, commercial car washes use about half of the amount of water that home washing does. When you wash your vehicle at home, you use an average of 116 gallons of water. Conversely, our car wash uses only 70 gallons of water.
Secondly, car wash soap often contains phosphates or other harmful chemicals. As you rinse your car, water runs down into your storm drain. Water from the storm drains flows out to creeks, streams, and other waterways harming water quality.
However, we recycle and filter our water at a higher percentage than other commercial car washes. After you go through our turbo wash, we collect and clean the water for the next customer. Thus, we use less water while still providing you with the very best car wash possible. Plus, we keep harmful chemicals out of our fresh waterways.
Other Great Benefits Of A Commercial Car Wash
When you wash your car at home it may take you an hour or more to complete the task. However, we can thoroughly clean your car in just a few minutes!
Moreover, the pressure of your garden hose is very weak compared to the water nozzles at our Xpress Wash. Our high-pressure water can remove bugs, pollen, and other stubborn grime without scrubbing. Yet, our powerful jets rinse away the dirt and grime without harming your finish.
Some DIYers try to copy this at home by using a pressure washer to clean their vehicle. While using this equipment will make your car washing job easier, there’s a risk of damaging your finish. You can chip or scratch your paint.
FAQs About Commercial Car Washes
Before bringing your car down for a cleaning, you may have some questions. We’ve put together some of the questions consumers most often ask us. If you don’t see your question here, feel free to call us at 336-993-7697.
How Often Should I Wash My Car?
As a general rule, most experts recommend washing your car every two weeks. However, factors come into play that may necessitate washing it more frequently.
For example, the season or weather may require you to wash more often. In the winter, municipalities apply brine to roadways to prevent ice. While brine is great for roads, it can cause rusting and corrosion if left on your vehicle. Unfortunately, corrosion begins as soon as brine settles on any part of your car.
Furthermore, exposing your vehicle to the elements will require you to wash it more often. Acid rain, bugs, and pollen settle on the surface of your car when you leave your car outside. All these things eat away at your paint.
Does Frequently Washing Your Car Protect Its Value?
Yes! Contaminants begin to eat away at your paint very quickly. Consequently, even something as small as pollen can cause irreparable damage if left on your car’s paint surface. Frequent washing removes these particles before they have a chance to damage your vehicle. Thus, your care will look nicer and keep more of its value.
How Does Your Turbo Wash Get Such A Lustrous Shine?
First, we use premium brand name products such as Armor-All®, Rain•X®, and Black Magic® for the ultimate clean. Plus, our professional equipment rinses away dirt and grime without leaving any residue.
