Elkton, MD Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How is your automated express car wash safer for my car and less expensive than washing my car at home?
Hand-washing at home can leave scratches in your car’s paint. Research tests show that the average backyard hose is not able to supply enough water along with the detergent action to avoid damaging a car’s finish. The most harmful method of washing cars was found to be the special car wash brushes that hook on to a garden hose and are purchased from local hardware stores. The test also showed that techniques used at a professional car wash are virtually harmless to automotive finishes. The professional car wash is able to provide and use tremendous amounts of water along with specialized detergents and appropriate mechanical action from gentle cloth pads and curtains which the backyard hose and bucket hand is not able to supply. Getting a safe, shiny car takes the latest technology. With the cost of water, your time, and detergents, why wash at home when you can receive a safe, quality, fast, and cost effective car wash at Bear 3-Minute Express Car Wash - Elkton Site.

Q. Will the wash damage my antenna?
It is rare; however, the possibility exists in all automatic car washes if the antenna is not firmly secured in place. While the antenna may look secure, if it is slightly loose, the possibility exists that it may snap. It is suggested that you remove the antenna before entering the wash and power antennas should always be in the down position.
