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 water.

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 the cars.

“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.
