After you have learned about what type of work is included under the bigger umbrella of “car detailing services,” you may wonder what the difference is between what we do and a typical car wash. The financial aspect of things is pretty easy to understand – detailing is almost always going to be more costly. However, our detailing solutions is a process that is much more thorough, and it delivers results that are much more impressive than what is achieved at the local car wash.
To make it simple, auto detailing is a type of cleaning service that includes the restoration and finish work needed to achieve the highest level of cleanliness and polish – our ultimate goal is to create show-quality results. We can provide detailing for just the exterior of your vehicle, just the interior, or both.
What Does Exterior Detailing Entail?
To make it simple, auto detailing is a type of cleaning service that includes the restoration and finish work needed to achieve the highest level of cleanliness and polish – our ultimate goal is to create show-quality results. We can provide detailing for just the exterior of your vehicle, just the interior, or the exterior and interior.
With our exterior detailing solutions, we will clean your vehicle’s finish (usually the paint). We clean this surface and bring it to the best possible condition. This same high level of attention to detail and cleaning are provided for all areas of the vehicle’s exterior. This includes the chrome trim, windows, tires, wheels, and more.
Professional car detailing solutions requires the use of many products and techniques. All of these must be chosen based on your vehicle’s current condition and the results desired. A small example of the products that we use for exterior detailing include towels, sponges, brushes, waxes, polishes, shines, detail clay, acid-free degreasers, and detergents. Each of these items are selected carefully based on your vehicle’s condition and its needs.
The Car Wash
Every detail process is begun the same way – we carefully and completely wash the exterior of your vehicle. This wash is to remove any dirt or dust present. Our team will use a special foaming soap that will soften mud and dirt, which makes it easier to remove all these contaminants from the surface of your vehicle. Our team of detailers will then give the wheels on your vehicle some TLC using several cleaning products, brushes, and more to make sure every speck of grime and dirt is removed. We get in all the cracks and crevices found in the lug nuts, brake calipers, and wheels, leaving your entire vehicle dirt and grime-free.
Drying Your Vehicle
If necessary, we can use an automotive clay bar to extract any dirt that is ground in from the paint or surface. Once the car is clean and free from all dirt, we will use mitts and microfiber towels to dry it and ensure no water spots are left behind. Once the vehicle is dry, we can determine if polishing is needed to eliminate minor swirl marks, scratches, or other issues.
The finishing touches include the application of wax to ensure your vehicle is showroom ready, even if you are only going back and forth to work or to take your kids to school and other activities.
