The Best Hand-Wash in Richmond!
Our full-service hand car washes are legendary! For most auto enthusiasts, your vehicle is your pride and joy. Only the most experienced and reliable providers are allowed to maintain it – a provider who is diligent about the products and materials they use to ensure against scratching or marring the paint and delicate clear coat finish; who uses only clean, soft micro-fiber towels and a pH neutral “finish friendly” car wash soap that foams away dirt and grime while preserving the wax or sealant protection; who is meticulous with buffing and waxing techniques, and brings your chrome and glass to glistening.
If your vehicle is fitted with polished, painted, alloy, or clear coated rims, we use soft wheel brushes, mitts, and cleaners formulated to gently clean away brake dust without scratching. We rotate the rims and scrub the tires, wheel wells, and whitewalls with a high pressure washer to remove dirt and mud. Door jambs are wiped down thoroughly; glass and mirrors are cleaned with low-lint towels and ammonia-free glass cleaners; and we apply UV protectorates to the tires..
Waxes and sealants are designed and intended for use on cleaned polished paint surfaces. They add a protective layer on top of the paint finish, and enhance its brilliance. Restoring brilliance to the paint finish is seldom achieved with only the application of a wax, as most paint finish have imperfections, micro scratches, oxidation and environmental contamination such as tar, tree sap or industrial fallout. To achieve a brilliant, rich, deep shine requires additional processes which include: claying, compounding or polishing. The lasting quality of waxes varies with climate exposure to sun and temperatures and have a life of approximately 3 to 4 months. For optimum protection, vehicles should be hand washed frequently and either a hand wax applied every 4 months or a sealant at least once a year. Sealants give a more durable protection have a life of approximately 6 to 12 months.
