Hand Wash Car Wash Facts

When Walnut Creek drivers need a deep car wash, a hand car wash is the best approach. Here are the following pros and cons of a hand wash car wash:

Hand Car Wash Advantages

  • A Deeper Clean – When you choose a hand wash car wash, you can get into specific, tiny cracks and crevices that could be missed by a touchless car wash. Furthermore, the undercarriage is much more easily accessible.
  • Affordability – You can perform this type of car wash at home in Pleasanton.

Hand Car Wash Disadvantages

  • You’ll Pay a Bit More at Specialty Facilities – If you request a hand car wash for a professional, it will cost you a little extra, but you can rest assured, you’ll get what you pay for.
  • Car Paint Could Be Damaged – If you go the DIY route and you use the wrong cleaning supplies on the wrong surface or you scrub with the wrong kind of material, you may risk damaging your paint.

Touchless Car Wash Facts

A touchless car wash is just the type of automated, mechanical car wash you get at a drive-through car wash. They’re usually cheaper, and they have their own advantages and drawbacks.

Hands Free Car Wash Advantages

  • Convenience – These are designed to get you in and out in 10 minutes.
  • Easier on Your Paint – These aren’t nearly as hard on your paint job.
  • Cheaper Costs – They’re cheaper because there’s no manual labor involved.

Hands Free Car Wash Disadvantages

  • End Result Might Be Unsatisfactory – Because this type of wash is automated, it can’t think intelligently about the specific ways in which your car is dirty, and it’s designed to be gentle on paint, so it will likely miss a spot or fail to get some stubborn dirt off parts of your car.
  • Water Spots – These air dry your car afterward, but that’s not as effective as soaking up droplets with a cloth, so expect water spots.
