What should I expect when I come to your car wash?2020-03-03T16:44:31+00:00

You’ll be greeted by friendly, professional associates who will guide you through the simple process. After choosing your level of car wash, pull up to the tunnel entry area. There, our professionals will guide you into the track. They’ll let you know when to put your car in neutral, take your feet off the pedals and hands off the wheel. You can then sit back, relax and enjoy the show! We’ll do the rest. Your vehicle will move through the wash process at the precise speed for optimal cleaning. We’ll clean the vehicle exterior with gentle touch washers and bio-degradable mild cleaning solutions. Your wheels and whitewalls will be cleaned, and your vehicle will be rinsed and gently dried. All automatically, in a few minutes. When you get the green light, you can put the car back in drive and pull into our Free Vacuum area to put the finishing touches on the interior of your vehicle.

Why should I wash at Goo-Goo Express Wash rather than washing my vehicle myself in the driveway?2020-03-02T20:08:56+00:00

A recent study shows that the average person uses over 100 gallons of water when washing at home and the soap runs off in the storm drain and does not get treated before entering local natural water sources.   Our express car wash uses less water and all the soap and residue is either captured and recycled or sent to city sewers where the water is treated before returning to local lakes and streams.

Is the car wash bad for the environment?2020-03-02T20:06:51+00:00

Actually, we use far less water per vehicle than a typical home car wash and only use earth-friendly, bio-degradable cleaning chemicals.

I lost something at the car wash! What do I do?2020-03-03T16:57:55+00:00

Oh no! If this happens to you, please fill out the “Get in Touch with the Car Wash” form so they can be on the lookout for your item. Return to the car wash as soon as possible to retrieve it.

What are the advantages of having a monthly unlimited membership?2020-03-02T19:58:58+00:00

An unlimited pass is worry-free washing program. For less than the cost of washing your vehicle twice a month, you can come as many times as you want.  With the membership RFID decal in your windshield, the gate opens automatically (no stopping to pull out your credit card) and you’re on your way to keeping your car looking like new. With no contract, no sign-up fee and a flat low monthly cost, the Unlimited Pass offers an unbeatable value.

What advantages do your soaps and Polymer Pro protectant have over the competition?2020-03-05T15:41:19+00:00

All of our soaps are bio-degradable and designed for easy rinsing from your car’s exterior.   Our top wash includes our Polymer Pro protectant.  This is a highly effective sealant that is applied through foaming applicators that fills in the small imperfections on the surface of your vehicle. With stronger sealant properties than carnauba wax, Polymer Pro protectant is longer lasting and provides superior protection from day to day road grime and environmental impacts that can truly make any car look young.  Here are the 7 top benefits of Polymer Pro protectant that keep your car looking new:

  1. Dull Paintwork – Oxidation on paint gives it a dull finish.  Polymer Pro reseals paint, preventing UV light and harsh chemicals from creating imperfections and gaining foothold in your vehicle’s exterior, effectively stopping oxidation in its tracks.
  2. Permeability – Polymer Pro reinforces existing paint sealant, so the car’s exterior does not become porous.  When a car’s exterior gets nicked, it becomes porous and is then susceptible to dirt and grime penetrating the paint’s protective surface, thus marking the car’s exterior permeable to further damage.
  3. Markings – Oil and acid that comes from bird droppings, insects left on a car, tree sap and the like are held on the surface of the car and not allowed to get to the actual paint when Polymer Pro sealant is applied regularly.
  4. Fine Lines – Think of dried skin that enhances the appearance of fine lines on our hands and face.  Polymer Pro protectant also fills in the fine lines that can occur when paint sealant gets dried out.
  5. Fading Color – With repeated use Polymer Pro protectant has been proven to enhance the vibrancy and gloss of even the dullest car’s color and finish.
  6. Surface Dirt – Polymer Pro protectant provides the most advance water beading technology available. This helps prevent dirt from accumulating and adhering to your car’s surface, making for easy removal the next time you come in for a wash.  Surface dirt that penetrates imperfections in the paint’s finish can trap water and leave behind spots.
  7. Under Chassis Rust – For the same reasons we don’t want oxidation on the exterior surface of our vehicle (it’s ugly and damages the integrity of the automobile,) we don’t want oxidation to occur on the underside of our car either. Our Polymer Pro protectant and undercarriage rinse options cleanse and protect your car’s underbelly and wheel wells from the oxidation that causes rust, which over time, can lead to expensive repairs.

What vehicles can I wash at this car wash?2020-03-02T20:37:16+00:00

While we would love to be able to wash any vehicle, our machinery has a few requirements.

  • Bug Shields
  • Luggage & Bike Racks

We also ask customers with trucks to make sure their truck beds are free of any objects or debris prior to entering the Wash Tunnel.

There is also an Excessive Mud Policy.  We apologize; however, we cannot run cars or trucks through the wash tunnel that have excessive mud.  This clogs the tunnel equipment and sprays mud on any vehicle that might be behind the excessively muddy vehicle.

Dually style vehicles cannot be washed.
