A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO CAR DETAILING

I. What is Car Detailing?

Car detailing can be simply explained as deep cleaning of your vehicle using specialized tools and products. And good detailers also perform some light cosmetic touch-ups but detailing does not include any paintword or body repairs.

It also involves cleaning and reconditioning of the interior and exterior of the car. The aim of car detailing is to revive the paintwork by eliminating scratches and swirl marks to make your car look almost brand new like it did when you first drove it out of the showroom.

When you wash your car yourself or give a professional for car wash it simply gets rid of dirt on the outside of your car, and if you wash the interior you might catch some of the dirt with a vacuum, but car detailing takes this procetailing, before going on to talk some more about why car detailing is a seriously good idea.

Aside from cost, a typical car wash only covers a fraction of the cleaning that you can get from a detail, and so only achieves a fraction of the result.

So what does a car wash include?

Most car washes take between ten and twenty minutes to go from washing to drying. A car wash can be done by hand or by machines (a drive thru car wash) that run bristles, soap, and water to clean your car’s exterior.

A car wash tends to be a superficial cleanse while an auto detail is more thorough and curative.

II. What is the difference between a Car Wash and an Auto Detail?

Now that we are clear what car detailing is, we are going to quickly discuss the differences between a car wash and car deSo most of the people think that there is no difference between car detailing and a car-wash but still one should look at getting their car fully detailed every once in a while and should also perform smaller details regularly to keep the car looks new.

And to help our customers understand the many benefits of car detailing, we are going to share what to expect when you choose to have your car detailed.

III. What are the steps in Auto Detailing?

A thorough car detailing includes 2 main stages: interior and exterior detailing. We are going to break down each phase so you know exactly what to expect when you get your vehicle detailed. Feel free to ask your technician if you have any questions about the process, as most of them love to share their art of detailing with others.

Exterior Car Detailing

We first start with a complete exterior wash to remove as much dirt as possible. By allowing the soap to foam, dirt and mud are softened and lifted off the surface.

Next, using special brushes and wheel cleaning products, the detailer takes off all the dust and filth from the wheels; brake calipers, lug nuts, etc. The wheels are generally the dirtiest parts of the car!

Once the wheels have been cleaned, the paintwork is washed and dried from top to bottom using washing mitts and soft microfiber towels. The paintwork is then clayed using an automotive clay bar that eliminates the tightly bonded dirt of the surface of the car, which is your car’s clear coat.

If necessary, the paint is polished to eliminate any light scratches, oxidation, and swirl marks. The paint can be polished by hand or by a polishing machine. This can be the most time-consuming part of the detailing service depending on the car and the state of its paintwork.

Lastly, the paint is waxed to provide it an additional protective layer using high-quality carnauba based paste wax. This added protection results in a noticeable shine too, the kind that you saw when you first bought it!

The remaining exterior parts, like the windows and other rubber parts, are then polished and systematically cleaned, adding the finishing touches in all the corners of the car’s body and exterior trim to make the entire car sparkle.

Interior Car Detailing

All of the cushioning inside the car is thoroughly vacuumed and shampooed to remove stains and dirt. If the car has leatherwork, this is often conditioned and scrubbed to remove dirt that is deeply ingrained. Plastics and vinyl are also properly cleaned and dressed.

Lastly, the interior glass is also cleaned and polished.

IV. What are the benefits of getting your car detailed?

A complete car detail will bring your car to its best condition. You can then perform mini details to keep your car looking as good as new.

Protection

Another advantage of auto detailing is the extra protection against the elements. When a wax coat is routinely applied to the exterior painted surface, it protects the finish from contamination and oxidation (rust).

Attention to Detail

Since detailing is an extremely thorough process, you can expect the detailer to precisely assess every crevice of your car to suggest customized solutions. You will not get this kind of personalized service at a car wash.

Car Value

Keeping your car in good condition will help maintain or revive the value of your precious car. This is particularly true of older or classic cars, especially if you’re looking to sell your car in the future. You simply cannot get the same results from car washes. A good detailer will bring your car to its original beauty.
