Everything You Need to Know About Auto Detailing

Detailing your vehicle is a great way to get that “new car” feeling and appearance back again, especially if your vehicle has been left outside and is a few years old. The problem is that auto detailing must be done by a professional or the results can leave your car worse than when you brought it in. Let’s start with what “detailing” is and how it should be done.

Everyone knows what a coat of wax can do for a car, new or old. It brings back that new car shine, and it also protects the finish from dust, acid rain, and some waxes even protect against UV radiation. Detailing takes the process to the next level and begins with a thorough cleaning and preparation of the paint finish before application of the final coats of wax. After careful cleaning and polishing the next step is the application of a ” Glazing” compound. This is a clear compound that fills minor imperfections in a paint finish and is applied before the final wax coats. Auto Detailing

Exterior Detailing

This consists of a thorough washing and drying of the exterior, then an application of polish to remove stains and oxidation. Next is, applying a glaze coat before final waxing plus an application of a protective coat of wax to protect and preserve the finish. And then finally cleaning wheels and tires, headlights and applying preservatives to tires.

Interior Detailing

This starts with a thorough vacuuming of the carpets and upholstery, followed by a shampooing of the carpets and upholstery if the interior is fabric. If your car has a leather interior, then leather preservatives and cleaners are applied. Note that some detailers separate exterior and interior detailing so ask if the price includes both.
