What makes our car Wash Different
Closed Cell Foam Brushes
In the 1990's Southland Auto Wash helped pioneer the use of washing brushes and cleaning wheels made of closed cell foam. This special material outperforms older cloth and bristle car wash brushes, and it does not hold dirt or water. This means that our material will not damage painted surfaces.
In today's complicated energy usage climate, Southland uses sophisticated computerized controls with outputs adjustable to the fraction of an inch. We pioneered the use in the car wash industry of variable frequency drives on our electric motors both to maximize energy conservation and to reduce our demand on the power grid.
Southland features the most advanced car wash technology in the world, including water conservation, recycling and purification systems. Our water recycling and conservation has been a model for some of the best carwash companies in the world to emulate.

Because of this, an Ekkomaxx™ installation eliminates 1 ton of CO2 in the atmosphere for every ton of portland cement it replaces. read more...
