Saving the Environment, One Wash at a Time!
Washing your car with a hose and sponge was developed back in the early 1900’s when Henry Ford was around. With limited resources, cars were washed very similar to how they still are today.
Fast forward one hundred years and biochemists have developed synthetic carwash formulas that perform far better than natural and conventional products we all grew up using.
It’s alarming that Arizona doesn’t have a better water plan for regular car detailing and car washing, considering we are one of the driest states and yet one of the biggest consumers of water.
When washing your car with a hose, we see up to 60 gallons of water wasted. All that water is often full of harmful chemicals, ending up on the ground washed into storm water drains and local water supplies.
The cold, hard numbers:
Average Gallons Consumed Per Wash
So how is AutoPro 300x more water efficient than the average detailer?
Will a car engine run on water? No… that’s because water isn’t a lubricant. Same goes for your car’s paintwork – water isn’t a lubricant.
You can try hosing or pressure washing your car down, then letting it dry. You’ll notice that water in itself will not clean your car & the dirt & grime is still there.
The water you’ve just sprayed on your car is now on the ground, and the little water that’s left on your car (if the sun doesn’t dry it out fast), is just water, and water isn’t a lubricant.
HOWEVER, our special waterless wash agents are formulated with special synthetic polymer lubricants that allow you to safely capsulate and lift the dirt away from your car.
Yes, lift the dirt away with a microfiber cloth… Scrubbing your car the traditional way with water and a sponge to get the dirt loose is unnecessary as it smears dirt into your paint and scratches it.
Water spots and drips when you drive away are now a thing of the past.
No overspray on other vehicles from pressure washers and soap cannons.
No dangerous hoses and cords to trip over.
No access to power or water required, which means we can access more remote locations
Our Advanced Wash & Wax Polymers also:
Protect the surface from UV rays, repel dirt and grime for longer, and bead water from the surface (keeping it cleaner after it rains).
Why aren't all cars washed like this?
Cost. The best car cleaning products are expensive.
Pair the Wash & Wax with the required microfiber cloths at $12+ each, and it becomes a bit more expensive than a 50 cent bucket and sponge from Walmart!
These methods can be more labour intensive as the technique to get a scratch free finish takes longer than throwing it through a hand carwash wash bay with 10 people armed with sponges and brooms.
