Some people might think that a car wash in Florida is the summertime is without benefit since it rains all the time.

That is not at all the case. At Platinum Car Wash at 13126 N. Cleveland Ave., there was pretty steady business on a recent Friday morning, with people getting their cars washed and detailed.

Open for about five months, the car wash has quickly built a following after purchasing the old McQuade's Car Wash in the spring. In June, it was named the "Best of" North Fort Myers for car washes.

As always, it comes down to customer service.

"We know our customers are happy because they keep coming back. We have regulars, even from the old place. They come and they tell a friend and from word of mouth we've been growing," said Ramadan Hassan, owner of Platinum Car Wash.

Hassan, started in New York owning a deli before deciding to open a car wash in Fort Lauderdale, which he ran for years before selling that one and coming here.

Business started strong and only increased when love bug season hit with a vengeance.

Since then, they have promoted the care wash to bring in more people. A relatively dry summer has helped.

Platinum Car Wash offers a full line of service, from a simple, as of July, $7 car wash and towel dry to a full, top-to-bottom detailing for $200 that will leave your car looking showroom new, and a whole lot in between.

You can also sign-up for monthly deals in their Wash Club, with unlimited washes on their popular washes.

A Lava Shield full-service wash was $29.99 for one but $49.99 for unlimited washes in a month. Two a month and it becomes a bargain.

There are also coupon specials that crop up, such as a couple in the "Best of" insert.

"Our plan is to take good care of the customers here in North Fort Myers. We're happy to be named best of and we hope it stays this way," Hassan said. "Business is good, but if it rains it slows down. So far, so good."

Platinum Car Wash is open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 997-1212 or go to their Facebook and Instagram page or website,
