Hello, we are Splish Splash.
Established 2012 – Toronto.
THERE’S A DIFFERENCE between car washing and car care. The former is what you do begrudgingly and in a hurry. After you finally get around to picking up the ketchup-smeared napkin on your floor mat and clearing out the Snickers wrapper tucked into your cupholder, you take the dutiful drive through your local carwash. The whole thing is just another chore.
Car care, however, is something more. Yes, it entails basic cleaning (vacuuming the interior, slathering the exterior in soap), but it goes further. It’s all about lavishing attention on a prized possession. We commit to finding just the right chemical compounds for the job, not to mention the softest sponges, polishing pads and drying towels.
We might seem like preening worrywarts, insisting that car-owners should take multiple passes to remove different kinds of buildup, and carefully towel-dry the car instead of relying on evaporation. But paint jobs are more fragile than they seem. Those innocuous-looking water spots from air-drying can be a sign of corrosion from the minerals and chemicals found in tap water, and scrubbing too hard at a piece of dirt lodged in the clear coat can permanently scratch the color coat beneath.
Not surprisingly, we believe in using the right tools for the job. You don’t, for instance, want to wipe down your seats with a general-purpose household cleaner (it could degrade the upholstery). Similarly, rubbing the exterior down with a rough sponge or ratty towel is a no-no that can scratch the paint. Car-care afficionados favor a microfiber towel, for example, that’s all about softness (our favorite, the Cobra Supreme Guzzler, could double as a baby blanket). Or a dual-action polisher whose motor revs high enough to do your clear coat a world of good.
All this pampering does have a practical benefit: It increases the lifespan and resale value of your vehicle. And although it’s certainly reasonable to try to do this yourself, there’s real satisfaction in having a professional beautifying your ride.
Passion is the fire in the belly. The driving force, that inherent intensity that makes one get up in the morning. For most it is usually the alarm. But passion is what makes us seek out new and effective methods of making your car look it’s best.
Also known as perseverance, work ethic, commitment, drive, passion, sense of urgency, effort, or resourcefulness. This includes honoring our commitments to the best of our ability by whatever means necessary. Diligence exists hand-in-hand with customer service, a drive to provide a quality product, and service no matter the obstacles.
Nooks and crevices look out. We commit to seeking out the most awkward spots in your car the “how did you get there” spots and making sure they’re as clean as the rest of the vehicle.
“Simply put, to make every car look its best. Our customers love us for our meticulous, precise and fast detailing. We believe in being the best option for fine auto detailing in the GTA.”
