Mobile Car Wash
A mobile car wash is a service that, instead of offering stationary
washing services at a permanent location, offers those services on an
as-needed basis at locations determined by their customers. Mobile car
washes provide nearly all of the same services as non-mobile car washes
but with the added convenience of coming to their customers instead of
the other way around.
Washing is an important part of all car maintenance regimens. Just as oil changes and regular tune-ups are necessary for ensuring the health of a car’s mechanical components, washing is important for ensuring the health of a car’s structural components, particularly its exterior. As a car is used on the road, it accumulates dust, dirt and even corrosive materials like road salts. In order to be cleansed of these contaminants, the car has to be subject to a washing process, which usually includes special soaps and detergents that are intended for use on car surfaces. The use of professional car wash equipment is generally preferable to generic soaps and cleaning equipment; it is specifically designed for use with cars, which means that it maximizes cleaning effectiveness while minimizing the risks to a car’s paint finish. Customers who are unwilling or unable to take their cars to stationary full service or automated car wash services can contract the services of a mobile car wash, which brings its services to a customer wherever he or she may be.
Mobile car wash services provide all of the same services as stationary car washes. They offer external and internal cleaning as well as interior detailing in some cases. They can clean windshields, finished surfaces, wheels and hubcaps, undercarriages, interior vinyl and carpet, seat covers and all manner of other non-mechanical car components. Most mobile car wash operations operate out of vans or trucks that are marked with the names of their business and a description of their services. Depending on the size of the operation, they may be equipped with their own water source. Mobile car wash services often bring some kind of pressurized water jet tool as well as a variety of soaps and detergents. Some mobile car wash services offer hand car washing for customers who are concerned about the effects of water jets on their cars’ finish. Mobile car washing can be expensive compared to its alternatives, but it is a valuable service for customers who cannot reach other car wash services.
