Detailing & Body Systems

What is Auto Detailing?

Auto detailing is the process of deep cleaning an automobile. It involves completely cleaning out the interior and the exterior of the vehicle. When a vehicle is detailed, depending on the service requested, every area of the automobile is cleaned, vacuumed, and polished.

The reason it is called detailing is because it involves cleaning every detail of the vehicle, inside and out. We take the time to make the vehicle look like it is brand new when we are finished. We use special cleaning supplies that can remove stains and improve the look and smell of any car, no matter how old or dirty it is.

During auto detailing, particular attention is paid to the vehicle’s carpets. If there are carpet pads on the floors they will be removed and cleaned separately. An auto detailing technician will thoroughly vacuum all of the carpeted areas of the vehicle with a high-powered vacuum hose. The tech will then find any stains that might be in the carpeting and treat them with a strong cleanser until they are gone. The carpet mats will undergo the same sort of cleaning process outside of the vehicle. Once the carpet is clean and dry, the mats will be returned to the flooring.

Auto detailing also includes aggressive cleaning of the seats, doors, and dashboard. Technicians will work to vacuum out dirt from the cracks and crevices of a car's seats. If the seats are cloth, they will be vacuumed and treated with stain remover where necessary. If the seats are vinyl or leather, they will be wiped down with a cleaner and then treated with a product that will help maintain their oftness and shine. All of the tiny crevices and curves of the dashboard and door panels will be wiped down with a cleaner and then treated with a preservative.

The exterior of your car or truck will be washed thoroughly during the auto detailing process. We also dry the vehicle  by hand and add polish as well. The vehicle’s windows will be cleaned inside and out with a good quality window cleaner. Special trim will be given an extra polish before the vehicle is returned to you..

Auto Detailing is more than just running your car through your local car wash (which will infact damage your car) or putting on a coat of wax. Detailing your car is thoroughly cleaning it, removing contaminates, swirls, scratches, oxidation and other imperfections from your paint to produce a show-quality level of detail.

Regular detailing extends the life of your car and actually adds to its value. Automotive detailing is extremely effective in cases where cars sit outside, subject to the cruelties of the environment, such as sand, sleet, snow, pollen, bird droppings and more – all entities that can erode a vehicle’s good looks by wearing through its protective clear coat and eventually consuming the layers of paint. Automotive detailing is auto care taken to the max.
