3 Ways Car Detailing Is Different From Home Cleaning

The two biggest physical outlays of cash that most people ever make are for their home and their car. Some people (but not all!) recognize this and try to keep both as clean as possible. But car detailing and washing is considerably different from what people do for their home. Let’s take a look at how these two cleaning styles differ. People Don’t Often Wash The Outside Of The House Some people join our car wash club and get their car washed every week, or use car wash coupons to get a deal on a wash every month.

A Tale Of Two Techies: Why It’s A Good Idea To Get That Full Service Auto Detail

Let’s imagine two different single guys, Bill and Chuck. They’re pretty much the same when it comes to income, house, tech jobs, etc. And they just happened to buy the same car on the same day. Bill commutes from Loveland to Greeley, and Chuck commutes from Fort Collins to Longmont, so they’re both spending a fair amount of time in the car, sometimes having lunch or breakfast  in it. But Bill and Chuck end up treating their cars very differently, and one of them suffers the consequences. Here’s the cheat sheet: Bill = Speedy Sparkle Car Wash user (sometimes uses [...]

The Evils of Magnesium Chloride

  Did you know that the Colorado Department of Transportation recommends washing your vehicle once a week during winter, more if it snows? That is because magnesium chloride is used to prevent roads from icing over. While we are all grateful for safer driving conditions, mag chloride can really damage your vehicle if left to sit. Not only does it corrode chrome and alloy, it eats away at the wires and hoses underneath your car, including brake lines! The key to keeping yourself safe and maintaining the value of your vehicle this winter is frequent washes. Especially if you often [...]

What’s Hiding in Your Carpet?

Have you ever been house hunting, walked into a house, and known right away that the occupants smoked, or had multiple pets? It can be a real turn off, and the same goes for your car.
