Premium Car Wash Services in Portland
It's really not that difficult, but there's a right way and a wrong way. We do it right.
While it may not be a herculean feat to wash a car, taking the time and care to wash your vehicle by hand can make all the difference in the world. Automated car washes may seem convenient and cheap, but they often use harsh chemicals and rough brushes that can leave behind scratches, swirls, and other damage to your vehicle's paint.
That's why our hand car wash process, which we call the "Regular" Wash, is a cut above the rest. We take pride in providing exceptional results and a higher quality of service that goes beyond just a quick wash and dry.
Our team of experienced professionals will wash your vehicle from bumper to bumper, using proper washing and drying techniques and practices to greatly reduce the risk of scratches and swirls. We pay close attention to every detail, ensuring that every inch of your car is thoroughly cleaned, from the wheels and tires to the windows and mirrors.
But it's not just about the quality of the wash itself. Our hand car wash offers a level of personal attention and care that you simply won't get from an automated car wash. We treat every vehicle as if it were our own, and take the time to ensure that it's cleaned to the highest possible standard.
So if you're looking for a quick and cheap car wash in the Portland area, we may not be the best fit for you. But if you want to give your vehicle the care and attention it deserves, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing it's being washed by hand with care and expertise, then we're the perfect choice for you.
Heres what's included:
We use special cleaners and degreasers to clean the wheel wells, faces, barrels, the tires (and that nasty gas flap!) to like-new condition.
The vehicle is presoaked and then rinsed with either snowfoam, or an akaline cleaner, to loosen up debris before the contact wash. The goal is to remove heavy dirt that can scratch your paint during the wash.
Snow foam soak to provide extra lubrication and prevent swirls, and hand wash with quality mitts, soft brushes, and techniques.
Apply a premium 1-3 month sealant (depending on driving conditions or owner interference).
Using quality towels, we hand dry your vehicle, while also using a high-powered air blower to ensure no water is left behind.
Final walk around and touchups of the vehicle, including cleaning the gas, polishing chrome trim, etc
Tire Shine applied upon customer request (non-silicon glossy and matte) **No Sling!**
The results? Superior shine and a vehicle so clean even your friends will be impressed!
Due to our methods, there won't be water dripping, and tire dressing won't flinging all over the paint when you drive off!
"Regular" Wash FAQs
Do you come to me?
Yes! I come to your location to provide our "Regular" wash. We service Portland, Clackamas, Oregon City, Milwaukie, Gladstone, Gresham, Happy Valley, Lake Oswego, West Linn, and surrounding areas.
How long does this service take?
It depends on the size of the vehicle, the condition, and how many detailers are on location, but generally 30 minutes to a little over an hour.
Do you offer bulk washes?
We do! We offer maintenance services for fleets of vehicles.
Do you need access to water and power?
Yes, but only water. I have my own power on the truck, but I don't carry enough water for a wash. I will need a water spigot for my hose
Does this include a wax?
Technically, no. But yes. The "Regular" Wash includes a synthetic paint sealant that provides the same protection and hydrophobic properties as a wax. It should last 1-3 months depending on conditions like tunnel washes, garaging your vehicle, poor weather, etc. If you are looking for a deeper level of shine and longer lasting protection on your vehicle, we suggest you check out our Wash & Machine Wax.
