What is car detailing?

Car detailing is a process where experienced, trained professionals give your vehicle an extremely thorough cleaning, polishing, and waxing to produce a show-quality cleaning. Besides improving your car’s appearance, it helps preserve the resale value of the car.

What is clear coat?

A car’s paint job is made up of four layers: primer, base, paint, and clear coat. Clear coat is the top, glossy layer. When well polished and waxed, you can see your reflection in it.

What is clay bar?

We use a clay bar to remove any embedded surface contamination that might remain after a maintenance wash. Sometimes the contamination it removes is not visible to the naked eye. The clay bar leaves your car’s surface as smooth as glass and properly prepped for a polish or to apply layers of protection. In addition to cleaning your vehicle’s paint, clay bar can be used on glass, wheels, lights, and more.

A common myth is that clay bar can remove swirls and scratches, which it does not.

Is clay bar safe for my car?

When completed by a trained professional, the clay bar process is safe to use on all vehicles! Clay bar is effective and safe for any make or model, as long as you can still see your reflection in the car’s paint and the clear coat is not peeling away.

Is it possible that my car is oxidized?

Oxidation can be easily identified by looking for flat, non-reflective spots on your vehicle. We can generally cut (remove) the oxidation on your vehicle. It’s best to have us come over for a free, no-obligation estimate so we can assess the condition of your vehicle and provide you with a quote.

What is Hybrid Ceramic Sealant?

Hybrid Ceramic Sealant is a particular variety of automotive sealant that is made up of synthetic ingredients, called polymers, in a liquid base applied to a car’s finish during detailing. The sealant creates a barrier between the finish and outside elements, preventing damage and preserving the attractiveness of the car’s appearance. Hybrid Ceramic Sealant creates a stronger and longer shield of protection when compared to conventional wax – it lasts 8 months to one year with regular maintenance. This service is highly recommended for customers who park outdoors, daily commuters, and those who want the best protection available. Learn more here.

What is an Interior Detail?

With an Interior Detail, we deep clean the whole interior of the car. Vacuuming is standard and an Interior Detail includes cleaning the dashboard area, panels, and windows to perfection. Seats, carpets, and floor mats are shampooed using hot water extraction. We also clean and condition leather on vehicles equipped with this feature.

What is an Exterior Detail?

An Exterior Detail includes a thorough cleaning, claying, waxing, and polishing the exterior of your vehicle. Exterior Details are recommended every 6 months to preserve your vehicle’s clear coat (the shiny layer of your vehicle, which almost all vehicles have, unless they have a matte finish). You’ll come out to find your car with a fresh, smooth surface that is waxed and machine polished to perfection.
