History of the Car WashThe History of the Car Wash might be a topic most of us don't ever bother to think about, even for those of us in the industry. Interestingly enough the commercial car wash has been around almost since automobiles became readily available to the consumer on the mass market. In 1914, only a few years after the launch of Henry Ford's the Model-T did the first car wash pop up in Detroit, Michigan. According to many sources that very first car wash was the Automobile Laundry.
In the decades to come the commercial carwash slowly evolved in phases slowly but surely automating. This included going from stationary to primitive winch systems and then eventually conveyor style tracks. The same is true for application of water, cleaning solutions and the washing itself.

Sealant or Wax?Which one do I need? Sealant or Wax? Or both? Are they different even? There's a whole lot of confusion and misinformation about sealants, wax, and their difference. In most cases a wax will also seal the paint, but it's not per say the requirement to be classified as a wax. On the other hand, a sealants main purpose per its name is to seal. The confusion arises from the fact that many sealants main ingredient is good ol' wax, whereas the confusion. In short a wax could be a sealant but not all waxes are.
One of the clear distinctions between the two is that a good wax product might last anywhere between 30-60 days depending on conditions. A proper application of a good sealant might last upwards 6 months in ideal conditions. This could easily save you time, money, and headache in that you will need less car waxing done.
Hopefully this brief article on "sealant or wax" provided clear contrast between the two products, if you however need more information or wonder which is best for you, don't hesitate to contact our experts at Overland Carwash.

What is Carnauba Wax?Ever asked the question: What is Carnauba Wax? At Overland Carwash we believe the best marketing practice is to equip our customers with the knowledge, only then can each person make the right choice for their car, bike, boat and even environment. That is why we post not only about our own products and services but generally what certain products are and why some options are more popular than others.
This time we tackle the question: What is Carnauba Wax? Carnauba wax is a naturally occurring wax produced by carnauba palm trees. These tree are commonly found in parts of Brazil where climate swings between wet tropical to hot an dry. The carnauba palm tree has as such developed a protection where a waxy substance is secreted from its leaves to protect against extreme heat. This is the same wax manufacturers use to develop auto detailing products.
Most carnauba wax used for auto detailing is a blend of the natural occurring wax and other synthetic ones. Since the wax is naturally produced by palm trees that consume carbon dioxie and release oxygen, the wax itself is breathable. This is one of many amazing characteristics that the carnauba wax possess, along with it protecting against oxidation, moisture, and the suns harmful UV-rays. Opting for carnauba wax has also been the long tradition of many auto enthusiasts and collectors as the wax creates richer and sometimes warmer colors.
Just like with most things in life, not everything is super. One of very few drawbacks in using carnauba wax (if you could call it a drawback) is the fact that it does not last as long as synthetic waxes, but when it lasts, it outperforms most competitors.
Hopefully this dense and brief post gave you more insight on what Carnauba wax really is. If you still have any questions and would like to know more about options available, contact the experts at Overland Carwash.

Should I Get a Tire Shine?There are many opinions and some outright myths out in the open about washing wheels and tire dressing overall. At Overland Carwash we often get the question: Should I Get a Tire Shine?
Out of all car parts, tires are arguably exposed to more stress and various elements than other parts. Furthermore, the nature of rubber is that it degrades after a certain time. Many tire manufacturers have in fact recommended "life times" regardless if the mileage is reached or not.
Nevertheless tire dressing makes the wheel clean, glossy, and overall the car much more appealing. However, using the right type of products could actually help your tires from early retirement (note that they can NEVER extend the life of a tire or prevent failure from physical stress). Some products however claim that they can help protect the tire agains the elements, especially the sun. Protection could extent to helping prevent cracking, fading, and hardening of tires.
If you have specific questions about wheel cleaning and tire dressing, make sure to contact Overland Carwash.

Undercarriage Wash in Los AngelesCar owners in California often don't have to worry about the detrimental effects of salt on the roads (used in colder states to melt ice and snow). Salt on roads is the leading contributor to rust under cars, but even in sunny California undercarriage wash is necessary.
A cars undercarriage has drainage holes that can get clogged or restricted if there is build-up. Not to mention rocks and debris that can chip the undercarriage exposing bare metal, in turn the metal is susceptible to rust when exposed to water and other moisture.
These are all reasons why you should never ignore the undercarriage of your car. Even if there isn't the same need in frequency to clean the undercarriage of your car, it should be done every once in a while. For a professional and proper Undercarriage Wash in Los Angeles, consult one of our auto detailing experts next time you drop by Overland Carwash in West Los Angeles.
