Waterless wash for northern Sydney’s car-lovers
Australians love their cars, but currently Sydney car owners face a hefty fine for all breaches of water restrictions, which severely limit the method and number of times that cars can be washed.

Enter Ecowash Mobile in northern Sydney - a completely waterless mobile car washing and detailing service that uses an innovative technique to provide a 2-in-1 wash and polish. As well as not using water, the cleaning products used are biodegradable, making it completely eco-friendly.

The traditional hose method of washing a car uses 220 litres of water per wash and currently 30 Ecowash Mobile franchisees are washing over 10 cars per day which equates to a saving of about 330,000 litres of water a week. The company has already saved over 17 million litres of water since it started in 2004 as listed on their website.

The northern Sydney area is fully serviced by four Ecowash Mobile franchisees who drive around North Sydney, Crows Nest, Northern Beaches, and Chatswood in bright orange cars.

Jason Kovan-Boss owns and operates the North Sydney franchise.

“One of the main advantages of Ecowash is that our service is mobile which means your car can be Ecowashed at home or at the office,” Kovan-Boss said.

Ben Oliver and Fred Judson own and operate the Crows Nest franchise.

“Another great benefit of Ecowash is the protection package we offer. If you get an Ecowash regularly, your car will be in much better condition. Most of my customers can’t recognise their cars after an Ecowash because the results are just astonishing,” Oliver said.

James Stedman is from the Northern Beaches franchise.

“Residents also love the fact that Ecowash is waterless, especially when we are so conscious of water conservation needs,” Stedman said.

Mr Roberts from the Chatswood franchise cleans about 10 Mercedes-Benz cars every week for Morrison Motors Mercedes-Benz dealership in Chatswood.

James Schramko, General Manager of Morrison Motors, thinks Ecowash Mobile is a great eco-friendly way to keep Morrisons’ cars clean and polished.

“We’re aware of the water restrictions and would like to act responsibly, but we’re now taking the next step and encouraging others to do the same,” said Schramko.

The Ecowash approach uses an exclusive product range that includes a polymer compound. The compound is sprayed onto the car exterior and encapsulates surface dirt and provides a lubricant, better than water, to remove dirt with a soft cloth. The polish leaves a protective coating to guard against the elements and harmful effects of wear and tear. The complete wash and polish is guaranteed not to scratch.

The complete range of products enables a full detail inside and out including leather treatment, bumper renovation and scratch removal. To ensure long lasting protection of your car, Ecowash Mobile has also just introduced new protection options for paint, fabric and carpet or leather.

A variety of services are on offer, from a basic waterless wash and polish right through to a full detail called an Extreme Ecowash, to suit individual car owners, through to car dealers, smash repairers and corporate fleets.
