- Pre-wash Car Prep
- The process starts with prepping the car for the wash. After the car is lathered with soap, high quality FOAM brushes are used to remove bugs and dirt that may be on the front of the vehicle. If you select a wash above the basic wash, your wheels will receive a bright and clean shine in our tire shine process. The vehicle is pressure washed as it enters the car wash, where we focus along the wheel wells, wheels, and running boards to remove stubborn brake dust and dirt. On all washes, $10 and above, we also use brushes to help remove stubborn bugs and road grime in all the hard to reach areas on your vehicle.
- The Paint Sealant Process
- We use Cleantouch chemicals, which help to shine your paint and clear coat and also help repel water and road grime, such as the infamous Magnesium Chloride, which is used in the winter for Colorado roads . It uses another proven technology called Buff and Dry. It uses buffing pads, which gently buffs in the waxes and sealants, giving a resplendent smooth surface to the car.
- Unparalleled Spot Free Shine
- The final stages of the wash include the spot free rinse and the drying process. The spot free rinse is the final rinse in the wash that uses ultra-purified water. The ultra-pure quality of the water helps to reduce residual water spots on the vehicle. We also use a Top Buff and Dry system to help dry and lightly buff the top of you car! This is a set of soft buffing pads that gently buffs in the waxes and sealants that have been applied to your car, resulting in a top quality, long-lasting shine. The Buff and Dry is the final component of the wash. It leaves you car dry and with the highest quality shine we offer.
- After Your Car is Washed
- When you have completed your trip through the car wash you may want to Vacuum the interior. That’s no problem because at North Gate Car Wash we have 24 high suction vacuums. Better still, when you purchase a car wash they are FREE for you to use. Car mats dirty? That’s no problem either because we have a Floor Mat Washer as well. It’s an all-in-one wash AND dry system, so you don’t have damp mats misting up the inside of your windows. Best of all, this is FREE to use also!
