C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing expands

FAIRMONT — C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing takes pride in its work and goes the extra mile for customers.

On Sept. 1, co-owners Shawn Bryant and Craig Singleton opened a storefront for their business at 1620 Locust Ave., Suite E, which is past the Exxon gas station and across from WomanCare. A ribbon-cutting and grand-opening celebration was held at the new shop on Oct. 1. with the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.

C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing had actually been in business for about a year — based in Clarksburg — before the opening of the Fairmont location.

Bryant and Singleton, who are cousins, began this venture as a strictly mobile operation, using their van to go to their customers.

They wanted to add a shop as a way to expand the business and keep operations steady through the winter months.

When looking for a suitable location in the area, they felt that the space on Locust Avenue would allow them to meet the need in the Fairmont area for these services.

Bryant and Singleton also have family who live in the Friendly City.

The business, which is licensed and insured, offers commercial and residential pressure washing. The team can clean houses, storefronts, bank drive-through areas, roofs, gutters, fences, decks, poolside areas, patios, restaurant hoods, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots and more. They have the capability to pressure wash three-story buildings.

Also, cleaning services can be provided for boats, RVs, fork lifts or any type of construction equipment.

Mobile detailing services are done at the shop, or the owners can send a crew to the client’s location. Customers can get a wash, wax and full detail for their car, truck or SUV.

The mobile unit is equipped with both hot and cold water, which offers a nice advantage for delivering the services, the owners said.

C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing has traveled to cities across North Central West Virginia for pressure washing and mobile detailing projects, and is willing to go pretty much anywhere in the state.

Bryant focuses on the detailing aspect of the business, while Singleton does the pressure washing.

They were both born in West Virginia and grew up in the area, but later left the state.

Bryant lived in Tampa, Fla., where he did mobile detailing and was a partner in a business.

Singleton moved to Atlanta, Ga., and has experience in warehouse work. He said he’s always dreamed of owning a business, and he knew it would happen someday.

When Bryant and Singleton each moved back to West Virginia a couple years ago, they reunited and worked together detailing cars. Then they decided to start their own business.

C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing is staying busy with the help of its new shop. Bryant said they are quick to respond to customers’ requests and strive to be fair.

The owners offer flat-rate prices, which they said are a lot cheaper than competitors, and provide free estimates for surrounding areas. They give discounts for college students, senior citizens and members of the military, and often provide free services or special offers for churches.

The mobile unit accepts credit cards. Loyalty cards or gift cards are also available.

The business’ hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and by appointment only from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, call C&S Pressure Washing and Mobile Detailing at 304-695-3756.
