about green clean express AUTO WASH

Founder and managing partner Shawn Everett grew up around car washing. His father and uncle were in the business, and they taught him early on that every customer who drove up for a wash was the most important customer of the day.  He never forgot that lesson.

His interest in environmental issues led to a degree in the field and a job with an environmental engineering firm.  But in 2008, Everett’s entrepreneurial spirit prevailed and he started Green Clean Auto Wash.

Green Clean built a loyal customer base in Hampton Roads. Everett and his team created one of the first Unlimited Wash Clubs in the region, growing it completely by hand – one customer at a time.

Today, Green Clean Express uses advanced car wash technology to deliver superior results at affordable prices, backed by friendly, knowledgeable service and environmentally responsible business practices.  Green Clean Express recently entered into a capital partnership that is fueling expansion, with 20 more locations scheduled to open across Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina by 2022.

Although this is totally your decision, and we suggest that you follow any dealer or manufacturer guidelines that may be applicable to your vehicle, many reliable sources say that once every two weeks minimum is a good general rule of thumb.

We hope you will enjoy your membership so much that you will never want to leave, but if you need to downgrade your plan or cancel you may do so online at any time.  If you are going to cancel, please do so at least five business days prior to your scheduled monthly billing date to ensure your cancellation request is processed on time.

If your vehicle is in an accident and is either totaled or will not be repaired soon, or if you sell your vehicle and no longer have it, you will want to visit the member login area and cancel your membership.  We understand you don’t want to be paying for something you can’t use, and you are always welcome to sign up for a new CleanPass once you are back on the road!

Your monthly fee will be charged to your card on the same day of the month as when you originally signed up.  So if you joined on the 10th, you will be charged on the 10th.  Please keep in mind this is the date we process the charges on our end, and it could take up to several days before your financial institution completes the transaction and updates your balance.

We are always happy to assist by answering any questions you may have.  You can speak with a team member at any of our locations, or please fill out the contact form on our website.  We will reply as quickly as we can, usually within 24 hours.
