Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is Rising Tide Car Wash different from other professional car washes?

    At Rising Tide Car Wash we aim to Redefine Shine. Our state-of-the-art car wash system delivers the perfect combination of premium soaps and waxes, light touch, soft cloth, and high pressure in order to provide a gentle, yet thorough cleaning of all vehicles. With dual sided wheel protection and a low profile guide rail, our new conveyor system is designed to pamper even the most expensive exotic cars. Further, all of our employees have passed a rigorous 25-hour training program developed in partnership with CarWash College and we offer a newly remodeled waiting area with flat screen TVs, comfortable seating and water cannons to our customers who choose full-service car washes.

  • What does Rising Tide’s logo represent?

    Our logo symbolizes our social mission of empowering individuals with autism through employment at a top-notch professional car wash. The icon in the center of our logo is a puzzle piece (the universal symbol of autism) being lifted up by a wave; this represents our aspirations of inspiring the Parkland community to see autism as more of a diversity which can be valuable for employers than a disability that we must have sympathy for.

  • Does Rising Tide wash trucks?

    Yes. However, height and width limit is 84″.

  • Do you take credit cards?

    Yes, all major credit cards are accepted.

  • Are tunnel car washes safe for ski or roof racks?

    In most cases, roof racks are safe to take through a tunnel car wash. Our staff will inspect your roof rack to make sure it is securely attached to your vehicle and has no protruding attachments. If your roof rack needs to be removed for safety, our staff will assist you to remove and reinstall the rack after your car has been washed.

  • Is it safer to wash your car by hand at home?

    Rags and sponges used in driveway washing inevitably become impregnated with tiny particles of grit and can scratch your vehicle’s surface. Furthermore, garden hoses typically have inadequate water pressure to remove all the soap film, letting it ‘bake’ into the finish and work its way into the paint for days afterward. In fact, professional studies have shown that the good old driveway car wash is one of the worst things that can happen to a car’s factory paint job.

  • Is the wash safe for convertibles?

    Yes, please make sure the roof is properly latched.

  • Is the wash safe for my car’s paint?

    Absolutely. Rising Tide Car Wash uses state-of-the art washing and rinsing systems engineered to enhance the appearance of your car. Rising Tide Car Wash combines high-pressure water with a soft-cloth washing system to remove dirt and grime gently.

  • How often should I wash my car?

    We advise our customers to wash their vehicles any time they are dirty. Dirt works into the paint and deteriorates the surface of the paint due to many types of pollutants in road dirt. It is best to remove insect residue, bird droppings, and other residue as soon as possible to prevent damage to your vehicle’s paint.

  • What's so bad about driveway/alley car washing?

    Since storm drains are not a part of the wastewater system, materials emptied into them do not go to wastewater treatment facilities. Driveway car washing not only introduces chemicals from soaps and detergents into the water system, it also loosens toxic particles that have accumulated on your car, such as lead, phosphates, motor oil, asphalt, and antifreeze and releases them directly into our streams and lakes. Commercial car wash wastewater drains into the municipal sewer system which is then treated before it is released. Further, according to the International Car Wash Association, tunnel car washes only use approximately 45 gallons of water per wash while driveway car washing use between 80 and 140 gallons of water.
