Warmer weather had many folks in need of a winter wash

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - If you drove around in the snow at all this past week, your car might look dirty. And with sunny skies and warmer temperatures, many folks in Region 8 had the same idea to hit up the car wash.

"I figured their was going to be a lot of people here," says car wash customer Ronald Clayporn.

"Just coming up here to wash my truck to get the salt off of it from all the snow," says James McAlister, who was waiting in line.

"The weather has a lot to do with it. When the weather clears out, everyone wants a clean car," says Team Clean Manager Michael Kraus.

Over at Team Clean Car Wash, that was evident, with cars lined up all the way to the street. It was so busy employees were out helping to direct traffic. "The volume has picked up. We're doing a lot of cars," says Kraus.

The snow this past week had street crews busy. But while the salt and sand helped to keep the roads safe for drivers, Team Clean Manager Michael Kraus says it's not good for your car. "That sand and salt will do a number on your car and everyone wants to get that off their car and we're more than happy to do that," says Kraus.

Crew members signaled as car-after-car rolled thru the car wash soaking and scrubbing away the winter grime. "I would say triple the normal Saturday is what we'll do for sure," says Kraus.
