Few people realize that washing our cars in our driveways is less environmentally friendly than using a car wash. Unlike household wastewater that undergoes treatment before it is discharged into the environment, what runs off from your car sweeps down your driveway and goes right into storm drains. On the other hand, federal laws in Canada hold commercial car wash facilities to a much higher standard. We are required to use high grade commercial soaps that are a better quality than generally available to the public. Our car wash also uses high-pressure nozzles and pumps that minimize water usage. The International Carwash Association reports that automatic car washes use less than half the water of even the most careful home car washer. According to one report, washing a car at home typically uses between 80 and 140 gallons of water, while a commercial car wash averages less then 45 gallons per car.

Soaps & Wax

Our Soaps are made with fully biodegradable surfatants. They are phosphare free and solvent/VOC free. Our waxes are also fully biodegradable and phosphte free. These products are government approved and are required by law to have Saftey Data Sheets, or SDS. The soaps at our facility become PH neutral before the water leaves our facility. This happens by using two different kinds of soaps, one alkaline and one acid. The two, once mixed create a neutral PH balance.

Water Treatment

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.3.4″ text_font=”Montserrat||||||||” text_text_color=”#000000″ text_font_size=”16px” custom_margin=”-14px|||||” custom_padding=”10px|||||”]


All our used water passes through at least one sump and up to three, depending on where you wash within our facility. Our sumps allow the used water rest and separate itself from the dirt, mud, silt, and general things your vehicle id carrying when you bring it in to wash. This organic material settles down into the sumps and is later removed by us using the vac truck you see in our yard. These sumps vary in debth Рup to six feet 


Anything that doesn’t pass through the grates or is not biodegradable ( such as garbage)in our wash is manually removed by hand and put in the garbage. Larger items like bark and large debris, are shoveled and/or brought out of the bays and eventually brought away using a dump truck.


our facility also has two underground separators. This is where our water goes after leaving the sumps. These separators capture and non-biodegradable items, suck as oil and grease. We then manually, and with special absorbent pads, remove this material and dispose of it safley at a designated station.
