That’s because older cars bear the marks of aggressive cleaning and brushing methods making it easy for dirt to become embedded in these grooves. But don’t lose hope; there is still light at the end of the car wash tun- nel. By using the new laser car wash service at TJ’s Car Wash in Botany Downs, the abrasion that arises from regular car washing can be avoided. The revolutionary, automatic, brushless car wash service not only preserves the vehicle’s paintwork, but thoroughly washes without driv- ers having to step beyond the comfort of their cars. The specialised drive-through bay employs laser beams that detect the size and width of the car. It cleans via a non-aggressive two-step chemical application and very high-pressure water jets and even cleans the under- side of the vehicle – great for all those trips along the beach! This results in a clean, sparkling vehicle and best of all, NO scratches. Imported from America and invented by a New Zealander, this state-of-the-art technology is for those who want the convenience of an automatic car wash without any compromise on their car’s appear- ance. Established for 13 years, TJ’s Car Wash has been a local favourite since its inception. Open 24/7 and ftted out with eight self-serve bays and seven do-it-yourself stations offer- ing vacuum, fragrance and shampoo services for car upholstery, TJ’s Car Wash offers a divine car pampering experience both inside and out. Not to mention, there is a fantas- tic range of vending products such as armorall sponges, glass cleaners and air fresheners available all at the insert of a coin into user-friendly machines. Now that summer’s here, it is an especially good time to make a habit of keeping the car in tip-top condi- tion. Owner Baden Pascoe says cars need to be washed regularly in the summer to avoid dirt and dust build- up. “The scorching sun tends to bake dirt into the car body, imprinting it and making it even more diffcult to clean. And worse still, if the car is badly scratched with dirt setting into these lines, it’s a car owner’s night- mare!” He adds that once this happens, many people make the mistake of brushing too hard. “It’s important not to be over-aggressive. When the surface is rubbed hard, it’s as if the surface is being sanded down, mak- ing it dull whereas we want it to look smooth and glossy like a brand new car.” And this is why the laser car wash is such a success. “Further damage can be avoided with the laser car wash and if it is washed regularly – around once a week – the car will reap the full benefts of the wash and is kept looking new for as long as possible.” Those with dirty mag wheels will love the powerful high pressure hot soap from the self-serve bays, Baden says. “We bet you can’t do this at home on your driveway!” In addition, waxing is an invalu- able measure for maintaining the car’s good looks, he says. “We use only Turtle Wax – it’s a professional, high performing wax and the very best around. “Waxing is the key to keeping the car looking good for a long time – it protects the car and makes it shine. We recommend using a good qual- ity hard wax every six months at the very least.” What’s more, clients can wash their cars with a guilt-free conscience. The environmentally-friendly car wash centre collects all waste and treats it safely without contaminating our storm water drains, rivers and even- tually, local beaches. TJ’s Car Wash also offers com- mercial trade wash services for large feets of vehicles that require quality and effciency at an affordable cost. Naturally, the laser car wash is also very affordable. Prices range from $8 for a quick wash to $12 for the ulti- mate thorough clean. And when the car emerges squeaky clean, all will agree these are small prices to pay for the service received. Then, all that’s left to do is drive off with an excellent coffee in hand from the on-site coffee outlet Jitta Buzz. It’s always fun and relaxing here at TJ’s. So head along to TJ’s Car Wash in Botany Downs and take advantage of its extensive car pampering solu- tions – all there is to lose is some loose change!
