"The guys at this location are amazing and are very attentive to the details. ... Javier is a true professional and is that rare spectacle of a visionary that can execute. My black Nissan hasn't looked this good since I drove it off the lot."

With a keen eye for opportunity and a drive to make a difference in the community, founder Javier Virgen saw how he could fill a need to conserve water and do his part to protect the environment. Through extensive research he discovered a line of plant derived, biodegradable, non-toxic cleansers that not only protect the environment but also preserve and enhance a car's finish. Considering the current water shortage and his seven plus years experience auto detailing, he decided there was an urgent need for this waterless car wash service and ECO Detail was founded.
Mr. Virgen's attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile to make sure his clients are completely satisfied is what has driven his success. He takes pride in sharing his gift for customer service with his team and instilling them with that same pride to provide only the best experience for their clients. Javier ensures that every member of the Eco Detail team meets the highest professional standards and he works closely with building management to ensure codes of ethics are always met.
Entrepreneurial from a young age, Javier Virgen started his first auto detailing business at the age of 22. Working at the local Shell station in San Diego he began offering regular clients detailing on the side. He quickly gained the reputation of a meticulous and conscientious worker and found his way into detailing exotic cars and even penetrated the market at the marina detailing exquisite hand crafted yachts. Since then, prior to founding ECO Detail, Mr. Virgen has developed several businesses including major commercial real estate investments, owning and operating a fitness facility, and traveling the world as a professional boxer.
