Detailing Process

No matter which service you choose your car will be detailed & prepared in the same meticulous way, below is an outline of the steps included in an exterior detail

  • Multi stage wash routine in brief:
  • Wheels cleaned with non-acidic wheel cleaner, faces & inside
  • Tyres cleaned with apc (all purpose cleaner) ¬†this helps the new tyre dressing bond properly
  • Wheel arches cleaned with apc & soft brush – cleaned & dressed wheel arches really freshen up the car
  • Lower portion of vehicle treated to a pre cleaner – this helps loosen up any dirt on the car prior to a thorough jet wash
  • Badges, grills, panel gaps, exterior trim cleaned with gentle detail brush & apc – the plush lambs wool mash mitt cannot get into every gap & crevice
  • Washed safely using 2 buckets, pure shampoo, gritt guards & super soft lambs wool mitt (an excellent addition to any wash routine is the 2 bucket method)
  • Tar deposits removed with tar remover – an essential part of the wash process
  • De-iron of paintwork & glass
  • Clay of paintwork, glass & lights, to remove bonded contaminants (another essential step for a top shelf paint finish)
  • Between each stage the car is rinsed with the pressure washer
  • Dried with plush super soft microfiber drying towels & warm air blower to get all the water out of the tiny spaces
  • Ultrasonic paint depth readings taken over the entire vehicle
  • Inspection of paintwork with 3M Sungun, the best defect spotting light on the market
