Park ‘n Wash is not only ideal for those who leave their cars at the airport for a few hours, or even a few days or weeks whilst they are traveling. The service is also available for drivers coming to collect family members or friends at the airport who only use the car parks for a short period, since it takes just 15 minutes for Park ’n Wash staff to “do the dirty work”.
The unique feature of the service is that no water is used; a special cleaning fluid is applied and then removed with a soft sponge. According to estimates, this technology saves 80-100 liters of water per vehicle, which means that several hundred cubic meters of precious drinking water are preserved from pollution on an annual scale. Moreover, the fluid used for cleaning contains plant extracts and other biodegradable substances, and thus only burdens the environment to a negligible extent. The efficiency of this technology, however, rivals that of the traditional wash and rinse method, thanks to the wax content of the cleaning fluid and the subsequent polishing.
“We are happy to make this brand new car wash service available at our car parks, to further improve the quality of our services provided to passengers at the airport,” said Manel Moreno, head of kerbside management for Budapest Airport. “The service works with “green” technology, without using water, and is thus also environmentally friendly.”
