  • How often do I need to get my car detailed?
    The frequency of auto detailing depends on several factors, including how often you use your car, where you park it, and how much you prioritize its appearance. As a general rule of thumb, most car owners should consider getting their vehicle detailed once or twice a year, but you may need to do it more frequently if your car is exposed to harsh weather conditions, frequent use, or heavy dirt and grime buildup.
  • How long does it take to detail a car?
    The time it takes to detail a car varies depending on several factors, such as the size of the vehicle, the level of detailing required, and the overall condition of the vehicle. Generally, our Advanced Detailing package can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, while an Elite Package could take several hours or even a full day to complete.

  • What is the proper way to wash your car?
    Washing your car regularly is an essential part of car maintenance, as it helps to maintain its appearance and protect its paintwork from damage. Here are the steps you can follow to properly wash your car: Choose a shady spot: Park your car in a shady spot to prevent soap and water from drying on the car's surface too quickly. Gather your materials: You will need 3 buckets, car wash soap, a sponge or mitt, and a hose. Rinse the car: Use a hose to rinse the car, starting from the top and working your way down. Wash your wheels: Fill a separate bucket with clean water and add a wheel and tire cleaner according to the instructions on the bottle. Use a separate sponge or brush to clean the wheels and tires, dipping it into the wheel bucket as needed. Rinse the wheels and tires thoroughly with a hose before moving on to wash the rest of the car. Wash the car: Fill your first bucket with water this will be your rinse bucket. Fill your second bucket with water and add car wash soap according to the instructions on the bottle, this will be your wash bucket. Use a sponge or mitt to wash the car, starting from the top and working your way down. Be sure to rinse the sponge or mitt frequently in the wash bucket to remove any dirt or debris. Dip the sponge or mitt in the wash bucket and wash a section of the car. Rinse the car again: Once you've finished washing the car, use a hose to rinse it off again, starting from the top and working your way down. Dry the car: Use a clean, dry towel or compressed air to dry the car, starting from the top and working your way down. Finish up: Use a window cleaner to clean the windows, and a last touch detailer to clean up any leftover smudges.
  • How much does auto detailing typically cost?
    The cost of auto detailing varies depending on the level of service and the size and condition of the vehicle. Basic detailing packages start at $65, while more extensive packages can cost several hundred dollars or more. It really comes down to what exactly you are looking to get out of your detail. We have various packages, paint correction options, and ceramic coatings to make sure we can accommodate everyone.
  • Will auto detailing remove scratches and swirl marks from my car's paint?
    Auto detailing can help reduce the appearance of minor scratches and swirl marks in your car's paint, but it may not be able to remove them entirely. The level of success in removing these imperfections will depend on the severity of the scratches and the specific detailing techniques and products used.
  • How can I maintain the appearance of my car between detailing appointments?
    To maintain the appearance of your car between detailing appointments, you can take a few simple steps, such as getting a hand car wash, avoiding parking directly under trees, keeping the interior organized and maybe even a quick vacuum can save you the head ace of getting an expensive and extensive detail. We offer our Basics Package which includes a hand wash and quick interior as a maintenance option to customers who have had their car detailed with us in the past.
  • Is it a good idea to get a clay bar with a car wash?
    Using a clay bar during a car wash can be a good idea, especially if your vehicle's paintwork has a lot of contaminants that can't be removed by normal washing methods. However, using a clay bar during a hand wash can potentially introduce scratches into the paint, even if the clay is used gently. For this reason, it is generally not recommended to use a clay bar during a regular hand wash. Instead, using a clay bar before applying a machine wax or getting a polish is a better approach. This is because the clay bar can help to remove contaminants that are embedded in the paint and can't be removed by normal washing methods. By removing these contaminants, the surface of the paint becomes smoother and better prepared for the wax or polish. This can lead to better results and a longer-lasting finish. In summary, while using a clay bar during a hand wash is not recommended due to the risk of introducing scratches, using it before applying a machine wax or getting a polish can be a good idea to help prepare the paint surface and achieve better results.
  • What is the difference between shampooing a car interior and shampooing with extraction?
    Shampooing a car interior and shampooing with extraction are two different methods for cleaning the interior of a vehicle. Shampooing a car interior involves using a cleaning solution and a brush or sponge to agitate the dirt and stains on the surfaces of the seats, carpets, and other upholstered areas of the interior. The cleaning solution is then wiped away with a damp cloth, leaving the surfaces clean but still somewhat damp. Shampooing with extraction, on the other hand, involves using a specialized cleaning machine that sprays a cleaning solution onto the surfaces of the interior and then immediately extracts the solution and dirt with a powerful vacuum. This method is more thorough than traditional shampooing, as it removes not only the dirt and stains but also the cleaning solution and moisture from the surfaces of the interior. In summary, while both shampooing a car interior and shampooing with extraction involve cleaning the surfaces of the interior with a cleaning solution, shampooing with extraction is a more thorough and advanced method that requires specialized equipment.
