Do you know the difference between a touchless car wash and a soft-touch car wash?
A touchless car wash is a very literal definition: No piece of car wash equipment touches the car. Everything that touches a car is sprayed on, either by a machine that rotates around the car or by hand with a hose and blaster.
But there’s a simple, critical problem with this approach: all touchless car washes leave out one of the three key factors for car washing: friction.
After five decades of experience with car wash development, wash quality, and engineering, we’ve found that leaving out physical contact with a car during the wash process is exactly like spraying plates with soapy water without scrubbing them down afterward.
It just isn’t enough to remove the stubborn, baked-on dirt and grime.
Tommy’s Express Car Wash is a soft-touch car wash
Car washes of the past (or outdated washes still running today) use nylon bristle-style brushes to clean vehicles. And sometimes drivers avoid all car washes due to the bad reputation of automatic car washes of decades ago.
Tommy’s Express is classified as a soft-touch car wash since we utilize the combination of detergent action, pressure, and friction for the very best car wash experience.
Did you know our Tommy’s Express spinning brushes don’t use any sort of brushes?
Instead, all Tommy’s Express Car Washes use either a closed-cell foam or dense specialty soft cloth material that feels like yarn but is far tougher and more unyielding.
This is the soft-touch car wash advantage. Our materials are soft, but they get the job done when it comes to necessary car contact friction.
Both the foam and soft cloth material are heavily lubricated with body soap. You can see for yourself—watch and see how foamy each touch of our ‘brushes’ leaves your car as you pass through!
Our expert engineering team knows what works and what doesn’t in a soft-touch car wash.
You can count on Tommy’s Express to continue to drive innovation in the car wash industry. We’re always researching and trying new ideas to make the wash better.
If you’ve been hesitant to try car washes in the past, try Tommy’s Express. You’ll be amazed at the difference.
