Are you aware that taking your vehicle to a commercial facility like TimberFalls Store & Auto Spa is much better for the environment than doing it yourself?
Few people realize that washing our cars in our driveways is one of the most environmentally unfriendly chores we can do around the house. Unlike household waste water that enters sewers or septic systems and undergoes treatment before it is discharged into the environment, what runs off from your car goes right into storm drains — and eventually into rivers, streams, creeks, and wetlands where it poisons aquatic life and wreaks other ecosystem havoc. After all, that water is loaded with a witch’s brew of gasoline, oil, and residues from exhaust fumes, as well as the harsh detergents being used for the washing itself.
On the other hand, federal laws in both the U.S. and Canada require commercial car wash facilities to drain their wastewater into sewer systems, so it gets treated before it is discharged back into the great outdoors. Commercial car washes also use computer-controlled systems and high-pressure nozzles and pumps that minimize water usage. Furthermore, automatic car washes use less than half the water of even the most careful home car washer. Washing a car at home typically uses between 80 - 140 gallons of water, while a commercial car wash like TimberFalls averages less than 45 gallons per car.
