Wash Off Those Carwash Misconceptions

With the crafting, green cleaning, and DIY renovation trends, it’s easy to assume that do-it-yourself projects are the best way to conserve natural resources and save your pennies. Making your own laundry detergent might get you a cheaper, greener clean for your clothes, but the carwash industry blows the “DIY = eco-friendly” theory out of the water. If you want a green clean for your car, a professional detailing service is the way to go.

Water Management at Commercial Carwashes

wet windshieldIt shouldn’t shock anyone to discover that discover that water is a crucial component of carwashes. The difference between washing your car at home and visiting a Woodstock carwash is that professional carwashes treat water like, well, it’s their job. The carwash industry has had years to perfect the most efficient methods of water usage and disposal. When you wash your car at home, you’re using up to 100 gallons of water per carwash. Using a professional carwashing service can save anywhere from 10 to 90 gallons of water per wash.

Chemical Cleaners and Carwashes

Not only do professional carwashes monitor water useage, they recycle the water they do use. Commercial carwash are required to collect water waste and send it to a treatment facility for purification and reuse. When you wash your car at home, the chemically contaminated water runs off into storm drains and sewers, introducing chemical soaps, oil, and other pollutants into the eco-system.
