Self Service Car Wash

Self service car washes are facilities where customers can pay for the use of equipment and a space with which they can wash their cars. Self service car washes are alternatives to full service or automated car washes, which do not require the involvement of the customer in the washing process.

Complete car maintenance regimens must include washing as well as mechanical maintenance. The condition of a car’s exterior contributes to its longevity, the effectiveness of its mechanical operation and the safety of its passengers. Car washing removes the accumulation of hazardous contaminants and corrosive materials like road salt, which can cause damaging rust and other problems. Every car requires periodic washing, so auto owners of all geographical locations and income levels must have access to some means by which they can wash their cars. Self service facilities tend to be less expensive than automated or full service car washes. They involve the use of pay-for-use equipment such as water jets, soap, scrub brushes and dryers in some cases. This equipment can be cash or coin operated, though equipment that accepts credit and debit card payment are becoming integrated as well.


Many self service car washes are open 24 hours and do not require the attendance of a manager. The self service car wash consists of a bay, which is usually a covered area that is large enough to house a car of any size, a pressure water sprayer that is connected to a large central pump and often a foaming brush that aids the cleaning process. The price of a wash in self service car washes depends on the amount of time desired. The more money customers spend, the more time they have to wash their cars. When the time is up, a timer shuts off the water and the customer is either finished or inserts more money. Customers use a dial system to select different cleaning options, such as soap, wax or rinse. The water nozzle is connected to a boom, which is a lengthy arm extension that is mounted to the wall or ceiling, giving customers enough slack to easily maneuver around their vehicle.
