Crain’s LA spotlights WashOS’s approach on auto detailing

Bertrand Patriarca launched WashOS with co-founders Benjamin Guez, Francois Pradel and Kevin Guez in 2015. While copycat apps have come and gone, Patriarca explained to Crain’s how the WashOS softward and its eco-friendly processes have made it the largest car detailing app in Southern California. Nothing more than an average size parking space is required for WashOS to clean a car, sparing customers the hassle of driving to a car wash and waiting while the work is done. In fact, you don’t even need that much water.

“We wash a complete car with less than one gallon of water, using eco-friendly solutions and microfiber cloths,” Patriarca said.
