IS CAR WASHING SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?

Absolutely! At Turbo Jet Carwash in fact, it is much safer for the environment to wash your vehicle at a professional car wash than in your driveway. We strictly control the fresh water flow rates and water pressure in our car wash and use considerably less water per car than you would use if you were to wash you automobile in the driveway. All mud and debris from the cars we wash is held in a confined trench and then removed regularly by a professional disposal company.

DO I STAY IN THE VEHICLE WHILE MY CAR GOES THROUGH YOUR CAR WASH?

Yes, whether you’re visiting our In Bay Automatic or Express Tunnel car wash the equipment continually cleans the vehicle as you sit in the driver’s seat.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I WASH MY VEHICLE?

We recommend you wash your vehicle a minimum of twice a month. Wash frequency really depends on the climate and environment where you live. In South Carolina, it is important to wash frequently enough to remove pollutants that stick on your vehicle’s surface such as acid rain spots; harsh dust which, if rubbed can scratch the paint; bugs, which will bake into your paint; and tree sap, which will etch your paint. The longer you leave your car dirty, the harder it is to clean and maintain the exterior of the car.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT MY CAR FROM THE SALT AIR & RUST?

The best way to protect your car is by washing not only the top of the car, but also the undercarriage. The undercarriage wash is a high-pressure rinse that flushes all of the debris and road grime from the underside of your car.

WILL YOUR CAR WASH SCRATCH MY PAINT OR DAMAGE MY CAR?

No not at all. Our wash process is safe and gentle. Your car goes through two stages of high-pressure rinsing/cleaning to remove any road grim and dirt before our patented ultra gentle sponge-like brushes touch it.
