Jaren and Hannah Servais began their relationship at a car wash, later they would marry. Now, 10 years later, they’re opening a car wash of their own.
The self-serve Wash House Car & Pet Wash will be open 24 hour sa day, year-round at 3098 Recreation Drive, near the N-Sports Complex in Washington.
Crews just recently started laying cement for the project.
The Wash House will feature two automatic stations, one touch free and one with soft touch, three self-serve bays and one dog washing station. It will be outfitted with eco-friendly car wash equipment and an IQ Car Wash System from D&S Car Wash Equipment Company.
Each system will offer customers several different wash “recipes” from which to choose.
As for the dog wash, Servais said it’s a unique service he and his wife thought Washington residents might have use for.
“It’s an opportunity we wanted to jump on,” Servais said. “A lot of people say they’d rather leave their mess here than in their tub at home.”
Servais said he’s hoping the car and dog wash will be open by mid to late August, and possibly sooner than that.
Parking will be available on both sides of the car wash. There also will be three vacuum stations and a detailing area.
Servais said the location is perfect for a car wash because of the size of the lot and the large number of commuters heading to and from Interstate 44.
“We wanted to bring something a little bit different to that side of town with the car wash,” Servais said. “We’re pretty excited. It’s another step in our lives. We’re looking out for the future.”
Servais, his wife and family live in Union.
