Where to Get a Car Wash In Bellevue
14 January 2020
Many people love the convenience of car washes that you drive through but is there a more convenient option that is safer for your paint that will keep it looking its best? In Bellevue there are a lot of places to wash your car, but how do you choose?
We get it, drive through car washes are easy, and touchless car washes are beginning to sound like an easy fix to poorly maintained automatic washes. Not to mention, what if you live in an apartment or in an area with water restrictions? What can you do?
The Problem with Automatic Washes
We have all gone through a wash at a gas station or off the side of the road. Sometimes we go through shiny new ones. But they all fall short in at least one way. First of all, have your wheels ever been truly clean after? Mine have not. One time I desperately needed a wash after I polished my hatchback so I pulled off the road and got in a long line at the gas station. No one was using the brush. I later found out why. My beautiful polishing work turned into a swirly, hazy mess. The brush was probably more of a broom than anything else.
See, when owners of these facilities don't maintain them, you pay more than the $5-$11 for the wash. We've been called to remove swirls and hazing due to dirty bristles and rough machines.
What about touchless?
Touchless washes really appeared to be the answer in recent years. And sometimes, if you need a wash, this is the closest to an automatic wash I'd get. One time a patron at a gas station in California I was at on a roadtrip, was at one of these was using it and the machine broke! It wasn't after the rinse either. All of the soap was on it in 80+ degree heat drying and marring the paint. How so? To get the dirt off these touchless washes must use harsher chemicals to dissolve the dirt. They also often are softening the water to reduce spotting with salt! This can leave a blue film on the windows and chome bits. This patron had salty, harsh chemicals baking onto her car!
