The addition of the SteamJet and trailer will allow the operation to take its services to customers. The SteamJet harnesses steam to wash and wax a car using less than one gallon of water.

"This is a great opportunity to expand our original business and follow the mission statement of The Resource Center, which is to support individuals with disabilities and other challenges in achieving maximum independence, contributing to their community, experiencing lifelong growth, and enjoying quality of life," Michael Volk, director of rehabilitation and employment services, said in the story.
