Canton Car Wash uses foam and soft cloth to provide for the best possible wash. Touchless car washes can't break the bond between dirt and your clear coat leaving behind grit on the surface of your vehicle. This grit can get ground in during the drying process causing light scratches. Touchless systems also rely on harsher chemicals which aren't good for your vehicle's finish or the environment. In comparison, our equipment heavily lubricates each vehicle with biodegradable detergents and allows our systems to gently clean the vehicle. Our soft touch safely and effectively removes dirt so it won't cause further damage to your clear coat.
Having automated machines do all the work guarantees that we provide the same high level of quality day in and day out. Our machines never come to work tired, sick or hungover, ensuring that your vehicle is safe and receiving the same precise wash each and every time.
A full service car wash (silver, gold, platinum) typically takes 20-25 minutes give or take a few depending on how busy we are. Exterior only wash (bronze) takes 5-8 minutes.
No appointment is required for any of the regular car washes (bronze, silver, gold & platinum).
Our slowest days are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday. Peak hours during week days tend to be between 11:30-1:30 and from 3:30-5:30. Friday and Saturday are our busiest days provided the weather is clear.
We take our last car up until the minute we close. We do close when wet road conditions occur.
If it rains within 24 hours of getting our platinum wash you can come back and have the exterior of the vehicle washed for free. To do so you must return within the next 24 hrs that we are open and show your receipt as your proof and date of purchase.
Details depend on the service, size of your vehicle and how many other vehicles are ahead of yours. Generally speaking our full detailing services can take anywhere from 1-4 hours in addition to the wash. Express detailing services tend to take about 20-45 minutes in addition to the wash. Feel free to call or speak with a manager on site to get a better idea of the timeframe involved with the detail service you desire.
No appointment is necessary, however it is encouraged. We take appointments ahead of any walk-ins.
Carnauba Hot Wax: Our most economical wax which is applied in our tunnel as a liquid wax. Carnauba Hot Wax helps protect your vehicle's finish as well as repel water from all surfaces including windows.
Express Wax: A polish wax applied with neumatic buffers and removed by hand to provide a showroom finish on new or used paint. Lasts for up to 90 days.
We recommend that you wax your vehicle at least every three months with either our Express Wax and monthly with our Hot Wax.
Absolutely! Mats should be placed outside of the vehicle until carpets are fully dry. We recommend letting the heat run on high directed at the floor to speed the drying process up. Leaving the window cracked about 1/2 inch is also recommend until the vehicle is completely dry. This allows for any vapor to escape from the vehicle and prevents any damp oders from developing.
