Go Green at Lakewood Car Wash

Water usage is of the utmost importance to Lakewood Car Wash. With a State-of-the- Art reclaim system you can rest assured your car is being washed in the most efficient and environmentally conscious way. 

Why choose Lakewood Car Wash?

When you wash your car on pavement, the rinse water runoff — along with all the chemicals it contains — can go to storm drains that empty directly into rivers and streams. This pollution has been proven to negatively impact aquatic life and ecosystems.

Lakewood Car Wash prevents water pollution by routing wash water to treatment prior to its return to the environment. We only use 25 gallons (94.6 liters) or less of fresh water per car wash — less than the typical home washing machine or washing your car at home. 


Preventing Water Pollution

Many people don’t know that washing vehicles on pavement causes harm to local waterways. Water entering storm drains, unlike water that enters sanitary sewers, does not undergo treatment before it is discharged. So, when cars are washed on streets, parking lots and driveways, that dirty water eventually winds up in rivers, streams and lakes. Washing one car may not seem to be a problem, but collectively, car-washing activity adds up to big problems for our waterways and aquatic life.


Water Conservation

According to the Alliance for Water Efficiency, the average home laundry machine can use up to 45 gallons of water per load. WaterSavers® car washes use an average of no more than 40 gallons (151.5 liters) of freshwater per car. All of that water is either recycled or returned to the environment cleanly. Using a garden hose at home, you can use more than 60 gallons (227.1 liters) in as little as five minutes. 


Energy Conservation

Electricity is how car washes are powered. Lakewood Car Wash has invested heavily in energy efficient equipment and the use of of VFD's.  Variable frequency drives (VFDs) as motor control devices is one of the best ways for more effective use of energy to power motors in a car wash operation. Our VFD's allows us to either turn up the power, or reduce it, depending on demand, resulting in significant energy conservation.
