SoftGloss XS2

The SoftGloss XS2 takes the most advanced wash technology available today and wraps it in a vibrant and exciting package leaving you with a wash experience you won't soon forget.

FoamBrite Wash System

Its FoamBrite Wash System includes a multitude of features that allow us to offer not only the best, but also the safest, clean in the industry. The FoamBrite Wash System includes 100% patented and exclusive FoamBrite wash material that is a lightweight, closed cell polymer cleaning material, that is virtually waterproof and designed to prevent dirt from accumulating on the brushes. The FoamBrite brush speed, surface pressure, wash material density and lubricity application provide the highest quality wash. But the FoamBrite system doesn't just stop with the brushes, it also includes:

Ultrasonic Vehicle Mapping, which identifies different types of vehicles under the gantry, in turn producing a custom wash depending on the type of vehicle being washed, whether a pick up, car, or SUV for optimum cleaning.

Amp Sensing Arms. This safety feature provides the SoftGloss with the ability to recognize the unlikely event that brush has become tangled on a vehicle extension such as a trailer hitch, immediately shutting that arm down until the unit has released itself.

Tall Rear Arms with a split hub design ensuring total FoamBrite wash coverage of all vehicles.

As with the Radius, the on-board Hurricane drying system is an integral part of the SoftGloss wash, traveling the entire length of the vehicle in unison with the overhead portion of the machine. Two powerful Hurricane fans provide a quick and efficient vehicle dry at the end of every wash.

Radius Touchless

The modern and stylish exterior of the Radius Touch Free Vehicle Wash System is outshined only by its outstanding performance and the quality of its washes. Customers are constantly delighted by this best-in-class system, featuring exclusive I-MAXX Cleaning Technology.

In the world of Touch Free car washes, powerful water impingement--or the force of the water hitting the vehicle--is critical to wash quality. I-MAXX Cleaning Technology uses powerful advanced flow concepts, maximized spray pattern designs, and high-speed wash passes to achieve the highest standards in vehicle wash quality.

Plus, as far as the Radius is concerned, SIZE DOESN'T MATTER. Any size production passenger vehicle will fit into the open bay of this wash system. Even Hummers and duallies are welcome to experience the highest quality wash without having to worry about width or height restrictions.

As with the SoftGloss, the on-board Hurricane drying system is an integral part of the Radius wash, traveling the entire length of the vehicle in unison with the overhead portion of the machine. Three powerful Hurricane fans provide a quick and efficient vehicle dry at the end of every wash.

FAQ?

Why open a car wash?

Like most people we've come to realize that anyone can wash your car, but few actually get it clean. Regardless of whether you're driving an Escalade or an Escort, your vehicle represents a significant investment--one on which you rely on a daily basis. Beyond performing regular maintenance, keeping it clean is key maximizing its life and performance (plus it's a great way to impress your date). We got tired of settling for mediocre washes so we built IGNTION Car Wash--the midwest's most advanced self-serve vehicle wash system.

What are your hours?

If you've got the time, we've got the shine--24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Whether you're a night owl or an early riser, we'll be open for you. IGNTION Car Wash closes only for routine maintenance and extremely inclement weather.

Is your car wash an environmental friend or foe?

At IGNITION Car Wash we're lovers, not fighters, and that includes our relationship with Mother Nature. Using a professional car wash to care for your vehicle is a great way to protect the environment. We use less water (about 25 gallons) than washing in your driveway (60 - 120 gallons). Plus our excess wash water goes to a waste water treatment plant. The soapy runoff from your driveway likely goes into the storm drain--meant for rain water.

How often should I wash my car?

Depending on how many miles you drive or road conditions, we recommend washing your vehicle at least once every other week to keep it looking like new. (Note: Some relationships may require more frequent washing to keep your significant other happy. Just go with it.)

Does my vehicle need to have its undercarriage washed?

Washing the bottom of your car is just as important as the body. Road film, mud, and salt all work against your vehicle's muffler, shocks, etc. Frequent washing helps keep rust from getting started. So go ahead, get your bottom blasted!

To wax or not to wax: do the sealants and waxes you offer really work?

Just like we refused to settle for anything less than the best wash systems available, we selected the products they use with the same discerning thought process. The Tri-Foam Wax, Clear Coat, and Rain Shield products we offer are of the highest quality and will help protect your vehicle's finish for up to 30 days.

My company has a fleet of vehicles and we need to look our best. Can I set up a corporate account? PLEASE!?!

Absolutely. Your dirt is our business. Just call Josh at 715.234.8161 to set up your account today.
