Bliss Car Wash opens first San Fernando Valley site

Bliss Car Wash opens first San Fernando Valley site

LOS ANGELES — The eco-friendly express carwash brand opens its ninth California location.

LOS ANGELES — Southern California-based Bliss Car Wash opened its ninth eco-friendly carwash on May 18, according to a press release.

This location is the express brand’s first in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles County.

The new carwash, at 15650 Sherman Way in Van Nuys, California, is the ninth open among its environmentally focused carwashes.

In keeping with his commitment, Bliss CEO and Founder Vahid David Delrahim donated a new freshwater well to the nonprofit Wells Bring Hope, as he does with each carwash opening.

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new site, Delrahim presented Barbara Goldberg, the founder of Wells Bring Hope, with a check for $6,100, the amount needed to fund a new well, this time financing the first solar-powered apparatus for providing clean water to villages in Niger. Delrahim has been working with the nonprofit for several years in its mission to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa, which is the most under resourced country in the world.

“We’re emboldened to be moving Bliss into the Valley,” said Delrahim. “We have seen that our method of operating a needed service, while treading lightly on the planet, is a winning proposition to customers. We operate with the pledge to make our communities, and the world in general, a greener and better place.”

Last month, in celebration of Earth Day, Bliss hosted an event with students from Ulysses S. Grant High School in Van Nuys that included a visit from a NASA scientist who spoke about climate, drought and our roles in protecting the earth.

The special session was arranged as a gift to the community, marking the opening of the new carwash in the neighborhood.

At the event, Delrahim also addressed the fact that home carwashing may soon become prohibited during California’s extreme drought conditions.

He said that the average person uses 100 gallons of water per carwash at home and is unlikely to capture and recycle the water.

On the contrary, Bliss saves 55 gallons of water per car by recycling it.

He added that home carwashing means that water, soap, contaminants and chemicals runoff driveways and into the local waterways, unfiltered.

The reclamation system at Bliss captures soapy water in floor drains as it runs off cars and puts it through a filtration tank that removes chemicals and contaminants that have been washed off the cars.

The water is then recycled.

The Bliss carwashes use technology that continually monitors freshwater usage, keeping it down to approximately 24 gallons per car wash and using 70% reclaimed water.

Bliss uses cleaning products that are biodegradable and utilizes low-energy consuming machinery.
