How is a Brush Equipment different than Touchless High Pressure Car Wash Equipment?

In a Brush Machine as the name suggests, there are 3 brushes which do the majority of the cleaning. 2 Vertical Brushes and 1 Horizontal Brush. in X Series Car Wash Equipment, Vertical brushes clean the Front, sides and the Rear of the car. The horizontal brush cleans the front , roof and the rear portion of the car. Brushes use teh soft bristles to remove the dirt from the car.

A Touchless system uses a combination of Chemicals and High Pressure Water to clean the car. Since there is no physical touching by the machine, the Chemicals have to be strong while using a large amount of water to clean the vehicle. This type of equipment is generally suitable for dusty environment.

Does the Car Wash Equipment clean 100% car?

No car wash in the world can clean the car 100%. In brush equipment, wherever the brushes don't touch, it does not clean. These areas would specially include the area below the number plate, Wheel arches, hidden / recessed spaces etc. Manual touch up of the car is required after the car wash if it is a full service car wash.

Generally, a small high pressure pump is used to pre wash the vehicle when it comes for car wash. This helps in removing the areas where the machine won't clean or the stains which machine would not be able to remove like, thick oil stains, Bird Droppings, Bugs (unless you add the Bug Spray in yoru configuration).

The main Unique Selling Proposition of your car wash business is that it gets the job done in a much lesser time as compared to Manual Car Wash. The Automatic Novetly last only for some period of time, then its always the service and cleaning.
