Every Car's Worst Nightmare - The Car
Wash
You’ve probably used it before, but you never knew the levels of damage done to
your pride and joy.  The CAR WASH is the number one worst place to take your
vehicle, period.

All it takes is ONE improper car wash to ruin the appearance of your vehicle.

Car wash operators know that their machines damage your vehicle, and that’s
why they have signs posted everywhere assuming no responsibility for damages
done to your vehicle!  Taking your vehicle to the automatic car wash results in
damage to your paint and trim that only skilled car detailers can correct, such as
CP Car Detailing.
Damages Caused by Car Washes:

Swirls - Dirty bristles accumulated from other dirty cars spin
at extremely high revolutions onto your paint, resulting in fine
scratches on your paint.  Then, dirty drying materials,
incorrect drying methods, and damaging beach towels are used
to ruin your finish to the max.  Beach towels have polyester in
them, which is the equivalent of using steel nails on your paint.

Water spots - You drive away from the car wash, only to have
water fly out of crevices, never to be dried by towels.  Over
time this water dries into your paint, eventually leaving
mineral deposits that can etch into your paint, causing
permanent damage

Scratches - Those dirty bristles can be carrying large dirt
particles which are large enough to leave deep scratches in
your paint.  The same dirty towels used to clean the wheels of
the car before yours is introduced to your car’s paint, release
large solid particles that will leave deep scratches

Trim damage - Harsh chemicals can stain your delicate rubber
and plastic trims, while spinning bristles can permanently scuff
your paint and chrome trim

But I Go To A Touchless Car Wash?

Doesn’t matter.  The touchless car wash will damage your
paint using other methods:
Highly pressurized water - Such a stream of water can
aggressively drive particles into your paint, causing fine
scratches

Extremely dangerous chemicals - Dangerous, aggressive
chemicals are sprayed onto your paint to break-down dirt to
make it easier to come off when rinsed-down with pressurized
water.  These chemicals will strip away your wax protection,
damage your chrome trim, and stain your rubber seals.  I
actually had a friend work in one of these touchless car wash
establishments, and when he was refilling one of the chemical
holders, he spilled it on his hands and he got 2nd degree
BURNS on his hands.  The chemicals that these touchless car
washes use are extremely dangerous.

Drying your car - Careless workers will use dirty, cheap towels
to dry your car, resulting in fine scratches and swirls, resulting
in a greatly diminished appearance, especially on dark colored
cars

The fact of the matter is, any high-volume car wash facility,
even a hand wash location, can be a major threat to your
vehicle.  The major culprits are using damaging methods to
wash/dry your vehicle and using DIRTY materials to wash/dry
your vehicle.  In order to ensure safety to your vehicle’s paint,
each vehicle should be cleaned and dried with new, clean
towels and wash mitts.  Now what car wash does that?
