Make it a Summer of Unlimited Car Washes

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Ever wish a car would just clean itself? Unlimited car washes may be the next best thing. The freedom and flexibility combined with a superior shine can make it feel like a vehicle never gets dirty.

But why would a car owner need unlimited car washes in the summer?

First, rain storms. A common misconception for most car owners is that they will let the rain wash their car. The truth is that rain can make a car dirtier because of the acidity of the perception. When rain mixes with the dirt on a vehicle, it can cause damage to the exterior of the car. A car wash helps to protect the surface of a car from this toxic chemical mixture and keeps the car cleaner overall.

Another reason unlimited car washes are a great idea in the summer is because of the frequency of travel in the summer months. Traveling automatically exposes a vehicle to dust, dirt and other particles that should be removed as quickly as possible. Don’t wait for crud to accumulate on the surface of a vehicle and damage the paint.

In addition, the unlimited full-service plan cleans the inside of the car as well. Sand, dirt from the kids home from school, unexpected spills from traveling, and other mishaps are no match for a full detail. Why let the inside of a vehicle waste away when the problem can be remedied soon after it happens?

One of the best reasons to go to unlimited car washes is the cost effectiveness. After only three washes, the services are up to 25% cheaper than getting a standalone car wash in the same amount of time. That’s extra cash that can be used on the next vacation.

It also saves time. Unlimited car wash customers get a small RFID tag to put in the windshield to effortlessly pass through the usual ordering process.

Mr. Clean Car Wash has 6 unlimited car wash plans that can fit any car owner’s needs and can be used up to once every day. Plus, unlimited plans can be redeemed at any location making getting a car washed easy and convenient. Make every day a clean car day with unlimited car washes.

Maintenance After a Car is Cleaned

Monday, May 30th, 2016

It may be surprising, but a clean car is just as important to maintenance as an oil change. Keeping a vehicle well maintained not only helps keep up the value of the vehicle, but protect it from outside elements. Here are some ways to keep the clean after the wash.

The ideal way to protect a car from getting dirty faster after a wash is by parking in a garage. A garage provides safety from the elements, tree branches and dirt that may get swept up in the wind, as well as UV rays. A carport is also a good option because of the overall shelter it provides. Shelter from the elements is the primary way to ensure a cleaner vehicle, but this may not always an option.

A car cover may also be an option if a garage or carport. Car covers help to protect from elements like UV rays, and act as a barrier between the elements and the vehicle. However, a car is only as clean as the car cover. If the cover is not kept in a place that is clean and void of elements, it can transfer dirt and grime to the car it is covering. Car covers can also attract moisture underneath, which can cause a problem, especially if mixed with dirt. Also, when a car cover is consistently removed from the vehicle it can often scratch the car in the process.

No matter what the protection options are, getting regular car washes will help keep a vehicle clean and relatively free of dirt that can scratch, or damage, the car body. Don’t limit the clean to once or twice a month, sign up for unlimited car washes with Mr. Clean Car Wash to ensure a well-maintained vehicle every time. Right now, save $5 off your next visit when you purchase a Signature Shine Full Service Wash.

Why a Car Detail Should Include Clay Bar

Sunday, January 10th, 2016

Most services surrounding a car detail are relatively well known. “Waxing”, “polishing”, and “car wash” are words most people know to associate with a car. However, there is phrase related to car detail that many don’t know: clay bar.

A clay bar for a car is made of a type of resin specifically designed to remove harmful particles and dirt from a vehicle’s paint. Essentially, clay bar takes off the containments that a wash leaves behind.

Some of the substances that clay bar removes in a car detail are metal or fiberglass. These elements can get stuck to the paint of a vehicle, and can cause major damage to the surface. Car clay bars are similar to clay a child may play with, but are more elastic. Foreign objects protruding from the clear coat surface of a vehicle stick to the clay. Thus, clay bar removes unwanted substances from the surface of the vehicle.

A simple test to help to determine if a vehicle needs a clay bar is to simply run your hand over the exterior. If any bumps or rough patches are felt, clay is a great option. You can also use a plastic bag to see if your car needs detail work. If anything catches on the plastic bag, it may be a good idea to bring the vehicle in for a full car detail with clay bar.

Another reason to detail your car with clay bar is rust. If a vehicle spends anytime outside— chances are there is some kind of oxidation on its exterior. Also, clay can help to remove sap and bug residue. If the substances on your car are sticky and hard to remove, clay is probably the way to go. The clay is hand applied and also helps to remove overspray, scuffs and other contaminants previously mentioned.

Mr. Clean Car Wash’s clay bar detail service helps to prepare the car’s surface for waxing. Always follow the clay bar service with a wax detail service because the clay bar will leave the paint unprotected.

Why leave glass and other objects stuck in a vehicle’s paint when a car owner can trust the surface to trained professionals? Come in today for a clay bar service followed by a Signature Shine Car Wash and additional car detail.

It’s Your Car, Protect It With: Car Detail, Oil Changes & Car Washes

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

A new car is a big investment. It’s a purchase that most car owners spend 5-7 years paying for—so why not take care of it? Even the vehicle is older than most—a car detail, oil change and car wash are just a few things that can be done to keep the car looking and running like it did on day one. One of the first things most do when they buy a car is get car insurance. Why? They want to protect their investment. However, it takes more than insurance to keep a car protected—it also takes maintenance.

The Car’s Exterior

A vehicle’s initial “wow” factor is its exterior: the paint job, the specific rims and trim selected according to the owner’s individual taste, as well as the overall shine of the body. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep a vehicle in “straight off the lot condition,” but in reality it is not as difficult as it would appear.

 

Keeping Cars in Shape To whip a car into shape, make sure the car receives regular full service car washes from the professionals at Mr. Clean Car Wash.

Car detailing can drastically improve the upholstery of any vehicle, which keeps it looking, and smelling, like new. Next, getting regular oil changes every 3,000 keeps a car’s engine in tune.

Many people think regular oil changes can be a huge cost, but they also help catch any other issues before they become a problem—saving the car owner money in the long run. An owner can also protect the engine and transmission from the extreme weather changes with Mr. Clean Car Wash’s radiator or transmission service. Protecting a vehicle inside and out becomes most crucial when it comes time to trade in or sell the vehicle. A well maintained car can get a higher resell value and a higher Kelly Blue Book score.
