WHAT IS AUTO DETAILING?
AUTO DETAILING IS A TERM THAT CAN HAVE DIFFERENT MEANINGS TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE. GENERALLY,THE CORRECT DEFINITION FOR AUTO DETAILING IS TO METICULOUSLY CLEAN,POLISH AND PROTECT ALL PARTS OF THE VEHICLE FROM TOP TO BOTTOM,AND INSIDE AND OUT. THE MAIN AIM OF AUTO DETAILING IS TO FULLY ENHANCE AND RESTORE THE VEHICLE FROM IT'S PAINTWORK AND TO ALL INTERIOR COMPONENTS AS WELL.
DETAILING IN A SIMPLIFIED EXPLANATION IS THE ART AND SCIENCE OF PUTTING YOUR CAR BACK INTO SHOWROOM CONDITION. IT DOES NOT HOWEVER,INCLUDE ANY BODY REPAIR OR FIXING PARTS OF THE CAR THAT HAVE DAMAGE.
THE FIRST STEP OF DETAILING THE VEHICLE IS USUALLY PRE FOAMING AND WASHING THE VEHICLE. PRE FOAMING IS THE PROCESS OF SOAKING THE CAR IN FOAM,THIS HELPS TO SOFTEN THE DIRT AND LIFT IT OFF THE SURFACE OF THE PAINT PRIOR TO PRE RINSING. ONCE THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN RINSED THEN A TWO BUCKET WASH CAN BE DONE SAFELY WITH LITTLE TO NO SCRATCHING.
AFTER WASHING THE PAINT,THE PAINT WORK IS TYPICALLY CLAYED IF NEEDED SO THE BONDED SURFACE CONTAMINANTS CAN BE REMOVED. AFTER THE PAINTWORK IS PROPERLY CLEANED AND PREPARED IT IS THEN POLISHED TO REMOVE SWIRL MARKS,OXIDATION OR ANY LIGHT SCRATCHES THAT MAY BE PRESENT ON THE SURFACE OF THE PAINT. THIS IS USUALLY DONE WITH A DUAL ACTION POLISHER BUT CAN ALSO BE DONE BY HAND,BUT TO ACHIEVE PROFESSIONAL RESULTS, WORKING BY MACHINE IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED. ALL EXTERIOR GLASS & WHEELS ARE ALSO ATTENDED TO DURING THE AUTO DETAILING PROCESS.
AN INTERIOR DETAIL IS WHEN ALL UPHOLSTERY IS VACUUMED AND SHAMPOOED TO REMOVE ANY STAINS PLUS REMOVE UNPLEASANT ODORS. LEATHER IS STEAM CLEANED OR SCRUBBED WITH AN APPROPRIATE LEATHER BRUSH AND CLEANER TO REMOVE DIRT FROM DEEP IN THE GRAIN AND THEN IT'S CONDITIONED AND PROTECTED. ALL PLASTICS,VINYL TRIM ARE CLEANED AND DRESSED TO REVIVE AND PROTECT FROM UV RAYS. INTERIOR DETAIL INCLUDES METICULOUSLY CLEANING FLOOR MATS,CARPETING,DOOR PANELS,CUBBY-HOLES,DASH GAUGES,AND VENTS. ALL INTERIOR GLASS IS CLEANED TO GIVE A CRYSTAL CLEAR AND SMEAR FREE FINISH.
THE INTERIOR DETAILING PROCESS IS ALSO VERY TIME CONSUMING AS EVERY AREA IS PROPERLY DEALT WITH USING A WIDE VARIETY OF BRUSHES,TOOLS AND MICROFIBER TOWELS TO ENSURE THE REMOVAL OF THE SMALLEST DUST PARTICLES FROM THE TIGHTEST AREAS. AUTO DETAILING HELPS MAINTAIN THE VALUE OF THE VEHICLE PLUS GIVES PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP TO THE INDIVIDUAL.
WHAT IS DETAILING CLAY?
CLAYING IS THE PROCESS OF REMOVING BONDED CONTAMINANTS FROM THE SURFACE OF YOUR CAR THAT CAN'T BE REMOVED DURING THE WASHING OF YOUR VEHICLE ALONE. THESE CONTAMINANTS CAN BE WHAT'S CALLED INDUSTRIAL FALL-OUTS & IRON PLUS BRAKE DUST THAT CAN AND DO BOND TO YOUR PAINT. REMOVING THESE CONTAMINANTS HAS MANY BENEFITS FOR YOUR PAINT AND OVERALL APPEARANCE OF YOUR VEHICLE.
YOU SHOULD CLAY YOUR CAR TO ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULTS. REMOVING THESE CONTAMINANTS ALLOWS FOR THE WAX OR SEALANT APPLIED TO THE VEHICLE THE BEST CHANCE TO BOND TO THE PAINT FOR MAXIUM PROTECTION AND DURABILITY WITHOUT THESE CONTAMINANTS BEING IN THE WAY. CLAYING YOUR CAR ALONE AFTER WASHING YOUR VEHICLE CAN HELP TO INCREASE A LEVEL OF GLOSS & SHINE AS WELL.
IT IS ALWAYS IMPORTANT TO CLAY YOUR CAR BEFORE ANY PAINT CORRECTION CAN BE DONE ON THE VEHICLE. FAILING TO REMOVE THESE CONTAMINANTS BEFORE PAINT CORRECTION COULD PUT MORE SCRATCHES IN THE PAINT DURING THE POLISHING PROCESS BECAUSE THESE CONTAMINANTS ARE PICKED UP AND THEY MAY BE DRAWN OVER THE SURFACE OF THE PAINT INFLICTING MORE SCRATCHES AND SWIRL MARKS.

What are the benefits of auto detailing my vehicle?
Auto detailing is probably the best and most valuable maintenance program for your vehicle. Car detailing is an important single process that covers a wide variety of techniques and products which, to get the best results, require considerable skill to apply. Detailing is considered an efficient renovation and protection of the various surfaces of a vehicle to keep it working in good condition.
Where do you do this?
As we are a mobile detailing service; we can come to your home or office.
How long does it take to detail my car?
A complete car detailing service, typically requires 4 hours, while an interior only detail or an exterior only detail requires around 2 hours. Please allow more time for pickup trucks and SUVs. Boats can take a whole day or longer. Same with RV’s.
How often should a vehicle be detailed?
Detailing has proven to be effective in getting you a better resale/trade-in price. So, if you are planning on selling/trading your car, make sure to have it detailed within a week of selling/trading it. It is usually when selling a vehicle that most people consider auto detailing. But, by that time (an average of 5 years) the vehicle has too much wear and tear to restore its condition. That’s why we urge our customers to think of auto detailing as a maintenance program just like changing the fluids, getting a tune-up or rotating the tires. Most people don’t realize that in most cases, it is less expensive to replace the engine than to replace a factory paint job. We recommend a car detailing service at least 2 to 5 times a year depending on your driving and car washing habits and how you store your vehicle.
Is it parked inside or outside most of the time?
Do you wash it every other day or maybe only once a month?
How do you wash it? Do you spend so much time in your vehicle that you feel like it’s your home?
These are just some of the determining factors that we consider in recommending what maintenance schedule and detailing service is best for you.
How do I pay?
We accept credit/debit cards only.
Do you have service packages available if I want my vehicle detailed more often?
Yes, after your first auto detailing, we would be glad to design an auto detailing maintenance plan specifically for your vehicle.
Will you be able to remove scratches from my car? What about that hazy/swirly look?
We can remove certain scratches from the exterior clear coat of a car. The rule of thumb is that the scratch has to be on the surface of the clear coat paint. If you can feel it with your finger nail the scratch is too deep to be removed. However, if you can’t feel the scratch with your fingernail there is a great possibility the scratch can be removed. If your car has swirls or a dull look to it, we can restore that new shiny look to your car.
What do I need to do before my scheduled appointment?
One way that you can help us best serve your car, boat, or vehicle is when scheduling a car detailing service is to empty out your compartments and cargo area. Also let us know if there are any compartments you would rather we not clean. Any other items we find, we will place in a bag for your convenience.
Do you offer corporate or group discounts?
Yes, we offer corporate discounts for fleets, dealerships & offices. We also offer neighborhood discounts when you & at least one neighbor schedule car detailing or other services on the same day. As long as we can service two or more vehicles in the same area we can offer a discount. Please contact us for more info.
Can you remove stains from my carpet?
It depends. Some stains in the carpet caused from fruit juice, soda, or coffee can set over time or if treated with the wrong type of product. While we have removed these types of stains in many cases, they can be quite challenging in others since carpeting can become abraded over time. This is common in the driver’s area of the car due to constant wear and tear and cannot be cleaned. The only way to bring the carpet back is to replace it or repair it. However, a great alternative to these options is simply dyeing the carpet.
