With Connecticut weather dropping below 20 degrees lately, many may think washing your car is not a good idea. But before you decide to leave it dirty, here’s a few facts you may want to know: You CAN wash your car in cold temperatures depending on how you wash it. Trying to hand wash your car in this cold weather is out of the question because of the possibility of freezing. Professional car washes are a great alternative depending on which ones you go to. Any professional car wash that is able to remain open during below freezing temperatures is almost always guaranteed to have a closed off and heated washing bay/tunnel, but you want to make sure you go to one that hand dries your car. This will help to ensure you don’t end up with frozen locks, doors, etc.

How the DARIEN CAR CLINIC Team Does Winter Car Washing

In over 25 years of business, DARIEN CAR CLINIC has never closed any of our car washes due to cold temperatures. This is because we combine state of the art equipment utilizing soft cloth washing, automated heated driers, and hand microfiber towel drying, in our heated facilities during freezing temperatures. This ensures that our customers have no issues with winter washing. It is also important to note that all of our wash packages include a hand prep that helps to remove snow and ice before it enters our car wash. DCC also offers an optional under carriage rinse that uses clear water to flush away excess salt and sand accumulated on your vehicles chassis during winter driving. These extra factors in our washing process make it safer and more effective than other professional car washing options. Many of our customers are surprised to hear that the winter months by far are the busiest time of year for us!
