Local resident helps locals keep their cars clean without using water
Local Springwood resident Glen Douglas is helping time poor and environmentally
conscious residents of Southside Brisbane keep their cars clean without using
Currently, level two water restrictions are severely limiting the method and
number of times that Queensland car owners can wash their car.
But Ecowash Mobile, a completely waterless mobile car washing and detailing
service, is using an innovative technique to provide a 2-in-1 wash and polish.
As well as not using water, an Ecowash uses cleaning products that are
biodegradable, making it completely eco-friendly.
Glen Douglas, manager of Ecowash Mobile for Southside Brisbane, has joined his
long time friend and Brisbane resident, Carolyn Campbell, in establishing the
franchise after being attracted to the concept of waterless car washing.
“The convenience of the service that Ecowash provides is what makes it so
popular, especially during these times of strict water restrictions.
“An Ecowash works much better than a traditional water wash. People are amazed
once they have it done on their car. When they see the results, they don’t go
back to washing their car with water,” Mr Douglas said.
Local car dealership Keema Automotive Group in Springwood has been offering
Ecowash Mobile services for their customers and according to Tony Brown, Group
Fleet Manager, the response has been very positive.
“We wanted to offer clients a service they could use to keep their cars clean
because under the current strict water restrictions, the dealership can’t wash
“There has been an excellent response. Customers agree that an Ecowash is much
better than a water wash. It especially appeals to those who are environmentally
aware. The service has made our customers very happy,” Mr Brown said.
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 entire wash and polish will not scratch.
The complete range of products enables a full detail inside and out including
leather treatment, bumper renovation and scratch removal.
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.
