Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS RUB A DUB

RUB A DUB is car care for smart cities. We use waterless, EPA approved products to perform car care services where vehicles are parked. 

WHY CHOOSE RUB A DUB FOR YOUR CAR CLEANING NEEDS?

RUB A DUB offers unmatched convenience and quality. Booking a service is easy and takes just seconds, and your car will be serviced while you’re at work, eliminating the need to take time out of your day to clean your car. The system used by our providers takes less time than conventional car washes and our products protect your vehicle and help to maintain its value.

WILL IT SCRATCH THE PAINT?

RUB A DUB’s No. RUB A DUB uses special formulas that lift, soften, emulsify and dissolve dirt and contaminants on contact. Special polymers wrap around any remaining particles in a lubrication film creating a thin layer between the paintwork and the dirt to protect the paint from scratching. The liquid is then gently removed using ultra microfiber towels which preserve the paint surface unlike any machine in traditional car washes. The RUB A DUB process is completely scratch-free. Since we hand wash every car, there are no brush, swirl or water marks.

HOW DOES RUB A DUB PROTECT THE PAINT?

RUB A DUB’s ingredients include Teflon, Carnauba Wax: high quality waxes and sealant. They form a protective film over the vehicle’s surface to protect against UV rays, pollution, salt, bird droppings and more.

DOES YOUR PRODUCT CONTAIN ANY SURFACE UNFRIENDLY CHEMICALS?

Every RUB A DUB product we use is bio-degradable and approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Our products do not contain any volatile organic compound fragrances or dyes, and are non-toxic. What’s more, our products also contain polymers designed to add protection and shine to your car’s surface. Customers will notice a slick surface on their cars once our providers have cleaned them.

CAN RUB A DUB CLEAN DIRTY CARS?

Yes. Your car does not need to be pre-washed before using RUB A DUB’s services and it is safe for dirty vehicles. RUB A DUB uses highly effective cleaning agents which easily remove dirt, grime, road film and tar using a small amount of water in the products misted on cars, without harmful chemicals or the risk of scratching.

WHAT IF THE CAR IS EXTREMELY DIRTY (MUD)?

To eliminate any risk of marring or scratching the vehicle’s finish, we will not attempt to service heavily soiled cars. We also take pride in leaving nothing behind to show the vehicle was washed, including any type of run-off or dirt on the ground.

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF USING RUB A DUB?

Never have to worry about finding or waiting at the car wash again. Customers simply park their cars at one of our locations to have them washed and pick them up when they are ready. Most importantly, using RUB A DUB to clean cars is eco-friendly. Traditional car wash methods will use 100 to 250 gallons of water at home and 45 to 100 gallons of water in a commercial car wash.

WHAT MAKES RUB A DUB ECO-FRIENDLY?

We consider our company to be environmentally friendly on several levels:

We don’t waste Earth’s most precious resource, water

Our solutions mist on and wipe off, no rinsing
We don’t use high power tools so almost no electricity wasted on washes
We only use EPA approved, biodegradable products
Our products do not cause any chemical runoff or toxic gaseous emissions

WHY SHOULD YOU USE RUB A DUB REGULARLY?

Washing removes surface dirt and loose contaminant build up caused by regular driving. Failure to remove these particles can result in potential bonding to the surface. Years of dirt, grime and road film along with sunlight can degrade the finish on a car by way of oxidation, causing rust spots and paint discoloration.
RUB A DUB saves customers the hassle of having to drive to a car wash center or wash the car themselves and the associated need for water, buckets, hoses, soaps, suds and water overruns.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CAR POLISH AND WAX?

Polish is a mildly abrasive substance which sands the surface of paint smooth and allows it to shine. It acts as an exfoliant for cars, removing the micro layer of dull, weathered and dried-out paint to reveal a brighter finish underneath.
Wax is a non-abrasive coating that protects the paint finish and microscopically fills in the dents and dimples in the paint to help it shine. It acts as moisturizing exterior protectant that prevents the paint from drying out and maintains the new-car shine.

WHY SHOULD YOU WAX YOUR CAR?

In addition to cleaning cars, it is also important to wax them regularly. This is because waxing leaves a thin coat on the surface, which both protects the paint from the environment and leaves a deep, lustrous finish.

HOW LONG DOES RUB A DUB TAKE TO WASH CARS?

Our services range from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the vehicle type and service level required. This is significantly less time than conventional hand washes or full detailing services.
