Bauer's Full Service Car Wash is a family owned business, owned by father Andy and son Drew who handles the day to day business. We purchased the facility in 1997 and immediately needed to attend to several upgrades to get this car wash up to standards - those of the city and also those of us and our customers. Having been in the region since 1978, we have seen and grown with the community over the years. Drew remains active in the community too, belonging to Citrus Heights Rotary Club, the Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Toastmasters club.
Drew's 21 yrs here has taught him much about this business - about cars, about products for them, about employees, and about the loyal clientele that regularly give over the care of their vehicles to Drew and his crew of people here at Bauer's. Above all, it's always been the goal of Bauer's to make this the prototypical "family business" - that is, one that solves issues right here, right now. And, where you can almost always find the owner (Drew) right on the premise. Never be hesitant to bring up anything to him - he welcomes the feedback!
Bauer's is constantly upgrading our equipment and gift shop, to offer the very best in vehicle care and customer care too. We're adding the new line of Blendco products (an industry leader) and are upgrading to a new wheel and tire cleaner as well as some other new wash equipment. We even offer windshield repair if you've caught a small stone along your way. Ask us about it!
Bauer's Car Wash is one of the last "Full Service" facilities left around. We do just about everything for your vehicle's cleanliness, from a simple exterior wash to a complete in and out detail - with several packages in between. Check out the full list on our "Services" page, and the supplemental "Auto Detail Menu" page. We're confident you'll find the right one for you, and we'll do it to our very best and your satisfaction!
Don't forget that we do details by appointment only. You'll need about 3 hours for a Full Detail, about 2 hours for an interior only detail, and about an hour for a hand wax or exterior only detail.

* * * * * "I wanted to leave a review because I have been coming here for a long time and was always happy with their ability to get my car in and out quickly along with doing a really good job on it. However the last 6-8 months or so I noticed that it was taking two to three times longer than it used to and my car was not cleaned good enough for the price I was paying. The employees seemed to be working at an extremely slow pace and honestly it seemed that they needed more people to the ratio of cars. At that point I stopped going there completely.
Then today I decided to give it another try since my car was extremely dirty and I did not want to do it myself. I have to say I was impressed with how quickly they got it done way quicker than ever before. They did a great job as well. I noticed there were quite a few more employees and they seemed to be working a faster pace. Also a lot friendlier.
I will definitely be returning! Keep up the good work!" --Kristin C., Carmichael (October 2019)

I wanted to be sure the car looked as if it was just driven off the lot and requested a full detail to ensure that any surface scratches were buffed out to look like new. I also had the interior detailed wherein they shampooed the carpet and seats and made the car look like brand new.
When I took the car back to the dealership at the end of my lease, they were amazed at how great the car looked." --Julie B., Carmichael (April 2018)
