Car Wash Detailing is Worth It – They Can Get Places That You Can’t
If your family is like mine your car is like a second home. You’re in it all the time for trips up north, sports, school pickup, family events, and errands, errands, errands.
Add in rainy days with muddy shoes, endless snack moments and kids pressing their noses to the glass, and the car becomes … quite gross.
You might have a cleaning schedule for your house, but adding in the car, too? With all those nooks and crannies? Sounds overwhelming.
Thankfully, nearby there are car wash detailing places to your car back in order. (And many will even come to you!)
Grand Rapids Car Detailing That Will Make Your Car Feel Like New
A snazzy, clean car is always a good pick-me-up. These are the places that the locals turn to for a good car wash detailing – inside and out!
And this isn’t just your run of the mill, “vaccuum and wipe down.”
Many of these detailers do a “remove the seats and shampoo” kind of cleaning. Even the oldest, hardest-worked car can come back looking like NEW.
So remember to tip those hard working auto detailers – especially if they are the ones that finally discovered that old milk bottle hiding under your kid’s chair!
