NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Customers wonder if there is harmful chemicals from road salt in commercial carwash water, according to a Bankrate Q&A.

This can be a particularly important question in areas like New England, where the reader is from, and snow is prevalent. The answer to the question is that there are EPA regulations that require carwashes to regulate and remove the harmful chemicals from the water that they reuse.

Carwashes are often tested to ensure that they’re meeting specific requirements.

Water reclamation and regulations

The systems washes use to do this include filtration and treating the water to dissolve salt, amongst others.

Make sure your wash gets the word out to questions like this that can dissuade customers from trusting commercial washes.
