Car detailing as an industry is growing like never before. The number of real care enthusiasts is growing every day. Why do I need to take it to the detailers? Why a regular car wash isn't just enough? Well, there are various reasons.

Car detailing is not just your regular car wash. Yes, it involves washing, but there is so much more to it washing is just a little part of it. The real work of the detailers starts before washing it.

Let's clear the basics first

Before discussing the benefits of car detailing, let’s cover the basics first. The car will get a citrus and a snow foam pre-wash. Next it will get a 2 bucket wash using grit guards, a well lubricated shampoo and a wash mitt designed to encapsulate dirt, removing it safely from the surface, unlike a sponge. After this tar spots and brake dust that can cause rust is removed chemically.

Then the detailers will remove all the tightly bonded dirt & dust from the car paint using a clay mitt or clay bar. Then the swirls and scratches that aren’t too deep and will be removed with precise polishing and sanding so your car’s paint will be restored to a glossy shine and a coating of wax of ceramic can be applied. The final result can look like a showroom finish...or better.

The interior of the car will also get a nice cleaning. The cushions, leatherwork, carpets, trunk, AC vents, and other parts will get cleaned thoroughly. Special products, tools, cleansers, etc will be used. And finally and the air-freshener with refreshing fragrance will be sprayed inside. The wheel faces will also receive precise cleaning. 

Now you are aware of the general process of car detailing let us discuss its benefits to you as a customer.

The increased market value

The detailing of the car adds a lot to the look & feel of the interior as well as the exterior of the car. The appearance of the car can be retained just like when it was bought.  Coatings on the glass will also add a lot to the overall feel of the driving by improving clarity and reducing the need for window wipers. 

Any 2nd hand car buyer will surely be impressed if the car still looks & feel the same as new. Any experienced car detailing team focuses on every small detail. The quality of a fresh detailing never fails to amaze the new buyer.

Car  becomes easier to maintain

In the detailing process, the car paint gets polished the scratches and swirls are removed wherever possible. And most importantly, the paint gets a nano-coating surrounding the whole exterior. The coating of wax or ceramic protects your car paint from all the environmental effects. 

These coatings are UV and chemical resistant and protect your car from the elements where others will fade and deteriorate. We do advise you follow our aftercare process after any detail to maintain this…(ask us if you’d like our detailers to maintain it for you).

Extend the life span of your interior

When poorly maintained the interior can quickly become stained, worn and often pick up hard to shift smells.

It affects the life of cushions, leather work, and longevity of the other parts of the car too.  Our car detailers take care of all such tiniest detail inside the car and will quote to remove as much damage as possible to bring it back to life.

The leather work receives the treatment that it deserves. The carpets &  boot of the car also receives a thorough cleaning. It involves cleaning with a lot of scrubbing, brushing, vacuum cleaning, usage of special products, and tools to get a fresh feeling for the owner.  As a final touch  we spray a fragrance of your choice to give your car a brand new feel.

Car is not just a machine, it's a book of memories

For many owners, the car is not just an ordinary machine. It's a passion for them. They will do everything in their power to keep it looking  its best. The feeling of driving a well-maintained car is priceless. The car will help you create so many family moments, memories of long drives, night outs, etc. There will be many  fond memories associated with your car. The condition & look of the car will always be worth maintaining.
