Every day we ask our team "how can we make a difference?"

Shining Star Car Wash keeps raising the bar, incorporating new technology that allows us to give every car a customized wash. 

Our current wash systems use three-dimensional mapping software to tailor the wash to each vehicle. As vehicles enter the automatic in-bay and the first chemical is applied, a propriety system of ultrasonic sensors and infrared photoelectric sensors scan the car to create an extremely detailed 3D map. 

The software program puts data from the map through an algorithm to determine the optimal way to position the car wash equipment throughout the wash. “The system increases our throughput because each piece of equipment knows precisely where it is supposed to be and when,” says James Platz, founder and innovation officer of Shining Star Car Wash. 

In a traditional setup, sensors on each piece of equipment react to the presence of the car and only then begin to reposition the equipment accordingly, which makes for a “reactive” system that wastes time, he said.

“We’re able to get the car a lot cleaner than if we were just moving the autos through free spinning and hanging foam fingers,” Platz said. “We end up getting your vehicle through a lot quicker because we know ahead of time exactly what we’re going to do.”

Enter Shining Star Car Wash and you’re entering a Green Wash. We practice energy saving and water conservation solutions to protect our environment. Washing your car at home uses 10 times more water and contaminates the underground water supply with soap and road oils from driveway runoff. Going Green makes all the difference in the World.

Dual Foam Cleaners and Foam Fingers that don’t hold dirt. Our foam fingers clean your vehicle and polish the surface at the same time. Our specially-formulated ultra foaming solution doesn’t hold dirt and thereby delivering the cleanest application to every vehicle.

Every precaution and care. The clean water that goes on your car is heated and softened and part of our overall green wash technique. Our Green goal is to practice energy saving and water conservation solutions to protect the environment, without compromising your vehicle’s optimal smart wash experience.

Ceramic Shield. Never paste wax your car again because this special liquid polymer protects like no other product, generating a deep, glossy shine that gets more brilliant with each application. An ultimate shine and water beading is produced that’s amazing and enables your paint, glass, wheels, trim and plastic to repel dirt and grime better and longer.
