One of the greenest car washes in the Greater Sacramento area is now dramatically reducing its water consumption.
Five Star Auto Center, a hand car wash that already uses less water than most traditional car washes, recently installed new technology to further reduce its water use – down to about 6-12 gallons per car depending on the wash. Typical equipment car washes use up to 60 gallons per car and home car washing uses as much as 120 gallons per car.
It’s especially important for consumers to understand if the car wash they are using is green. Many cities in the Sacramento region are asking citizens to use professional car washes versus washing at home. Some areas have already ruled no more home washing of vehicles.
