Frequently Asked Questions
Does your car wash remove tar?
How often should I have my car washed?
Your car should be washed as often as it is dirty. If your car is exposed to corrosive materials like salt, sand and industrial fallout, it should be washed often. Moisture attracts contaminants and promotes a variety of chemical reactions that can destroy your car’s finish. Frequent washing is essential to the life of your car’s chrome and painted surfaces. In seasons or climates less conducive to corrosion, a wash every two weeks or so is adequate. Of course, these estimates may vary depending upon whether your car is kept in a garage or out in the elements. Your neighbors or your sprinklers may be the single worst enemy for your car’s paint if your car is parked in the driveway or outside.

I washed my car at home and now I see swirl marks on my paint. Can you get them out?
The answer is, yes. Our detailers will use different types of compounds, depending on the condition of your car, to eliminate the swirl marks and other elements as well.
Can I wash or wax my new car right away or do I have to wait a specific period of time?
Be very careful that you wash your car properly. It’s important that you exercise extreme care — especially when washing your new car for the first few times.
Many initial washing errors result in soap flash, water spots, setting stains and loss of luster. Without the benefit of protective coating layers that your car will receive over the years, mistakes made during the first few washes may be hard to correct.
Should you decide to wax your car, use a wax that’s compatible with your paint. Check your owner’s manual and the label on the wax container for instructions. The best advice is to trust your car’s finish to a professional from the beginning.
