Is Your Mobile Car Washer Environmentally Friendly Or Do You Even Care?

Many people who go to work each day, have a mobile car wash service, or a little mobile detailing company come to their office each week and to wash everyone’s cars. It is true that during the recession fewer people are getting their cars washed, but the mobile car wash guy still comes around each week, and for a reasonable price will clean your car.

However, have you ever asked yourself if your mobile car washer is environmentally friendly are not?

The reason I ask you this question is so many companies these days are into being a green company, or a sustainable enterprise. In fact, many companies are trying to figure out ways to use alternative energy in their businesses, recycle, and replace their light bulbs in order to save energy. That’s wonderful, but what about your vendors, or even the mobile car washer that comes by each week to your parking lot; is he environmentally friendly also?

The reality is that a good number of these mobile services are not environmentally friendly. They are not using the proper types of soaps, and detergents to clean the cars, and they are allowing their waste wash water affluent to flow into the storm drain. You may not think this is a big deal, and perhaps washing one car isn’t. But you must also consider that many of the brake pads have asbestos on them, and when they clean the rims, heavy metals go into the storm drain.

Is your mobile detailer blocking off the storm drain to stop the flow of water while washing your car?

Where is all that dirty water going to; do you even care? If you say you care, but you do nothing about it you are a hypocrite, and if you don’t really care, which is probably the reality because you are letting this occur, then all your other environmental sustainability, and green company propaganda is ridiculous. I hope you will please consider this.
