Your car is undoubtedly one of your most prized possessions, and it requires thorough maintenance from time to time. It is an expensive investment made and requires care for longevity. To do so, you can incorporate professional car detailing, which will not only make your vehicle look anew but also offer a lasting experience. 

Car detailing is the art of restoring and cleaning your vehicle to make it look just the way you had bought it. It is labour-intensive and time-consuming but worth every penny you spend.

Nowadays, modern cars have an auto-wash facility that requires nothing but the press of a button. However, that only cleans the exterior of the vehicle. On the other hand, there are no shortcuts in the case of professional car detailing. It is a manual job that includes the refurbishment of the vehicle’s interior and exterior.  

What to expect from the process?

While detailing may also mean cleaning a car till it shines inside-out, a professional company will always go the extra mile. It is because they have proper expertise and equipment to bring out the most desirable results. Moreover, dealing with auto parts requires quite an amount of technique that only professionals are aware of. 

When you approach a car detailer, most of the time, there is already a brochure that features all their services. It consists of various charges for the services that they have to offer. Some of the professionals also use mobile applications for business management. It helps them track packages in transit, manage invoices, estimates, and pricing. 

There are majorly two types of services that you can avail from a professional car detailing agency: 

  • Exterior detailing
  • Interior detailing

External car detailing

Here is a list of the standard services that fall under this category:

Washing and drying

The whole cleaning and drying process requires manual effort. The professional detailer is geared up with appropriate equipment to carry out the task starting with spraying the car’s exterior body and then dries it down. The detailer also washes every door handle, glass, and rims intricately.

Paint claying

Paint claying is the process in which the detailer will use a particular clay bar to wipe the car’s exterior. As a result, there will be no more contaminants or extra spray liquid left on it. Therefore, this process’s effect leaves behind a very smooth and clean surface that is mandatory for waxing and polishing the body. 

Polishing and waxing or sealing

The detailer polishes your car exterior to help cover any paint cracks and scratches. After that, the waxing or sealing process gives the vehicle the ultimate glossy shine. Further, there is a sealant to provide an extra protective layer to the car. 

Interior car detailing

Detailing the interior of a vehicle is more elaborate than working on the exterior. With regular wear and tear, the inside of a car requires refurbishment. For example, you may need to replace car seats or get seat covers, mats, carpets, and so on. Also, there are chances of debris deposition due to outside pollution and regular usage. In such cases, you must allow detailers to do a thorough steam cleaning, leather trimming, and perfuming before delivering the car to you. 

Now that you have a brief guide and know what to expect from professional car detailing, it is time to collaborate with the best company in town.
