Doesn’t your car wash facility use and waste a lot of water?
Autoshine uses around half the amount of water to clean a car unlike at home with an open hose you will easily use up to 150 Litres.
Isn’t car washing bad for the environment?
All of the effluent from a professional Autoshine car wash is discharged into our interceptors before being released into the foul sewer where it is treated. Autoshine Express is fully compliant with its discharging responsibilities. DIY washing is bad for the environment because the dirty water is discharged straight into the storm drain which goes into all our local rivers and streams killing bird life and fish and damaging the eco system. So you are doing the environment a favour using Autoshine Express.
I hear a lot about your car wax finish. What is that? Why is it important?
The wax gives your car’s paint job its shine and protects the pourous laquer base coat from damage. You need to get your car regularly cleaned and waxed to keep your car looking good.
Doesn’t frequent washing ruin the look of my car’s finish?
Frequent washing at professional car washes with wax protectants protect your car from the damaging effects of weather and UV ray damage. Insurance companies are now advising us the importance of cleaning your car regularly to help maintain the value and condition of your car.
Is it true that valeting, as well as cleaning my car inside and out, also has antibacterial benefits?
Absolutely, the amount of bacteria that is found on a car’s interior is nearly three times as much as you will find in a toilet. Professional valeting and our unique anti-bacterial cleaning system at Autoshine Express will clean your car thoroughly inside as well as out.
Why is a commercial car wash better than what I can do at home?
The most important reason why a licensed commercial car wash is better is that there are a lot of contaminants that are on and in all vehicles big and small on the roads today.
The environmental impact can be hugely affected, as most home driveway drains and carpark drains are designed to flow back into rivers and local streams, then you put at risk the phytoplankton and aquatic life that are living in there.
In a commercial license car wash all our drains are connected into a huge septic tank that treats all the water before it goes to the main council water works area were it gets treated again before it goes into the water system. We off course are charged heavily for this service hence the prices we have to change to protect our environment.
Will my car get damaged through frequent car washing?
No when you are driving all those miles and also with your car parked out side it is constantly getting bombarded with fuel and wild life pollution and acid rain fall. Please go onto or wash page section and see diagram explanation. By frequently washing these contaminants off and protecting your body work with wax or polish, you are insuring your investment in your car and its life expectancy to keep it road worthy and above the law.
