The Harm of Handwashing
Of course you're particular about your car's appearance. Why else would you spend all those hours washing, scrubbing, polishing? It's not your fault that hand washing actually damages your car's finish. Dirt and sand become embedded in your brush, sponges , and cloths.
Two university studies (University of Texas, and the Technical University of Munich, in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz) prove that a single hand wash produces scratches 1/10 as deep as the paint's thickness-far too many scratches to count. This repeated abrasive scouring destroys the paint's ability to achieve or maintain a gloss, or to provide protection against rust and corrosion.
Here Are Some Interesting Facts
The paint on your car is less than five-thousands (.005) of an inch thick. This doesn't place much of a barrier between the metal body of your car and the variety of weather conditions that exist thoughout the year.
It's been proven that weekly washing is the single most important factor in prolonging the appearance, as well as the resale value, of a car. Dirt traps moisture against the paint, and will promote rust. Cleaning a car's finish weekly in an environment such as ours will eliminate the corrosive action dirt, salt and pollution can create.
We also suggest a wax application. Whether you do it yourself or have a professional wax treatment, don't let this one go. Wax leaves an invisible barrier on the paint which protects the finish from many harmful substances. Remember, clean cars last longer!
Ever since the first Model -T struggled from the muddy ruts of a rain drenched dirt road, people have searched for away to clean their cars. We have progressed from hand washing to automatic brush equipment, from brushes to cloth, and now to our new Touchless® Cleaning System. It has taken years of effort and research to perfect this method of cleaning your car without a single brush or cloth pad touching it's paint! Soft, warm, soapy water applied under controlled pressure through a series of computerized robotic arches have forever altered the course of car washing.
The robotic arches are a wonder to watch as they move across and beside your car, covering every square inch of the exterior, nothing is missed. This revolutionary new method of thorough cleaning enables us to flush salt and grime from behind bumpers, moldings, rocker panels and grille areas. These areas can not be reached by hand or conventional car wash equipment. You simply must see your car's new glow as it emerges from the final clear water rinse to fully appreciate the Touchless® Shine.
