Car Wash efficiency Starts with Two

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Believe it or not, a car wash can be a difficult thing. Especially when considering all the components of a professional car wash. Taking note of the details can make all the difference in a superior clean and shine. One way to ensure careful consideration is in accountability and a second eye, which is why two finishers are better than one.

First of all, time is a huge consideration to both the finisher and to the customer. Everyone has busy schedules and places they need to be at a certain time. Having each finisher dry their own side of the car allows for efficiency and time management. The car will be done in half the time and helps to “Clean Cars FAST!”

In fact, one of the selling points of a full-service car wash is that it takes the same amount of time to go through the tunnel no matter what level of wash selected. No need to sacrifice time for quality.

Then two finishers begin drying the car after it exits the tunnel giving an all around clean in half the time. The process is mirrored on both sides, getting the car finished faster than if only one person was doing the job. Having a finisher man each side not only gets the process finished faster, but also lets the finisher pay attention to detail on their designated side. The system helps the finishers to work as a team that gets the customer in and out faster, respecting their time and money. Also, having a designated side encourages team effort because both finishers know where to focus in order to get the job done in the most efficient way. Only having one person on each side really helps maximize clean and quality.

Treat Your Towels with Respect

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Once upon a time, people getting ready to do a home car wash just grabbed the nearest old t-shirt. Today there are several options that could be more preferential to the user. One thing they all have is in common is they require some TLC, especially when it comes to washing and drying. Here are a few tips for keeping carwashing towels in top shape:

  • Do wash them before the first use to get rid of any factory residue.
  • Do use different towels for different jobs. Have separate towels for interior use, exterior use, and dirty jobs like the wheels and exhaust.
  • Do listen to mom and sort before washing. Washing all of three sets of towels at the same time spreads contaminants and defeats the purpose of having different towels for different jobs.
  • Don’t use fabric softener. Fabric softener reduces absorbency.
  • Don’t use bleach or products with bleach alternatives. Bleach breaks down the microfibers, causing them to produce lint.
  • Don’t rely on ordinary laundry detergent. This is where microfiber towels show their downside: While they’re absorbing all of that water, they’re also absorbing dirt, grease, grime, and whatever other contaminants with which they come in contact.
  • Do clean the lint trap before putting towels in the dryer.

If that sounds like more work than actually washing or detailing the car, let Mr. Clean Car Wash handle the hassle for you. All Mr. Clean Car Washes clean their towels thoroughly, carefully, and in a way that protects the environment. Stop by today to take advantage of the latest promotions.
