Detailing

When it comes to cleaning our cars, we either take it to the local car wash or we’re out there with a bucket and tattered sponge, using washing up liquid and whatever else we can find under the kitchen sink!

But, there are other options; Auto Detailing (Car Valeting) being one. This is the performance of an extremely thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing of an automobile, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality level of detail. Besides improving appearance, detailing helps to preserve resale value of a car. Car detailing has been around for about as long as vehicles have been on the road and there are hundreds of different ways to detail a car. The quality of the products and the number of products has grown over the years. Because car detailing hardware has improved greatly over the past few years, what was once just water and soap is now multiple chemicals and new machines to achieve different results.

Exterior detailing
Exterior detailing involves cleaning and bringing a shine to the car’s paint, chrome trim, windows, wheels, and tires. Different detailers use different products to do this, including detergents, detail clay, waxes, polishes, and a variety of applicators and special cloths.

The three main components of exterior car detailing are cleaning, polishing, and protecting. Cleaning refers to removing all foreign surface particles from exterior surfaces through the use of washing and claying. A clay bar helps to clean contamination/dirt from within the clear coat that cannot be removed through weekly washing such as bugs, tar, sap, etc. Correcting refers to using mechanical polishes by hand or with a machine and specific polishing pads that remove micrometres of clear coat from a vehicle to remove fine scratches and swirls from a paint surface produced from improper washing or drying technique. Protecting involves the application of a protective wax (in liquid or paste form) that prevents foreign matter from adhering to the surface of the vehicle, including water, bugs splatter, tar, and dirt. Waxes and sealants provide this barrier against the elements. Waxes are some of the most expensive elements of the detailing process.


Interior detailing
Interior detailing involves cleaning the passenger compartment of the car. All of the dash area, panels, windows, and seats are cleaned extensively. Vacuuming is standard and steam cleaning, liquid cleaners, and brushes may be used to remove stains on upholstery. Some nonporous surfaces may also be polished. Sometimes seats are removed to provide the most thorough clean possible.

Engine detailing
Engine detailing, is where steam, low pressure water, degreasers, various soft brushes and all-purpose cleaners are used to clean under the bonnet of the car.

Detailing does not include body work, painting, mechanical or upholstery repair.
