No matter what we are doing to your car, truck, boat, RV, or trailer, the techniques we use are what helps us stay ahead of the 'other guys.' I have quite simply developed ways to do a 'good job, fast' to do it quicker and at the same time more thorough than anyone else that I am aware of; even something as basic as a car wash.
We'll wash your vehicle from the top down, removing dirt, bugs, and road film. Excessive tar, pollution, industrial fallout, hard water spots, oxidation, and overspray are removed at a reasonable extra cost.
Your vehicle is NEVER dried with towels, which can leave very fine scratches , particularly on dark colored cars. We only use a large synthetic chamois which leaves no marks and dries your car like nothing else. I highly recommend you buy one of them if you own a dark colored car and I can tell you where to buy them. Keep it in your trunk in a plastic bag, which will keep them damp; NEVER use them while dry and stiff! They can be washed in a washing machine when needed, and this only improves their performance. It takes a while to break them in, so be patient. The payoff will be well worth it.
Your tires & rims are cleaned, and a rubber treatment (NOT a dressing) is applied to your tires. Your interior is vacuumed (trunk included) and dusted with a damp towel, door & trunk jambs are wiped, and all windows are sparkled inside and out with glass cleaner.
If we are washing your RV, it gets much the same treatment, but I want you to know that we get up on the roof and give it a thorough wash and scrubbing, including everything attached to it...vent covers, horns, AC components, etc. Trust me...we'll beat the 'discount guys' any day of the week with the quality of our work. We want to come back again and again, and have you feel good about referring us to friends and family. With 23 years in business, you'll find great reviews on us everywhere, and we do our best to live up to them all.
We begin each car or truck detail by cleaning the tires, rims, wheel wells and washing the entire vehicle from top to bottom. Your vinyl top or convertible roof is scrubbed where applicable. We'll also remove bugs, tar, road film, and minor pollution with a clay bar treatment at no extra charge. Excessive pollution, oxidation (dried, faded paint), massive amounts of bugs, tar, and paint overspray are safely removed at an additional cost.
Following the wet work, we'll buff (polish) your vehicle with the finest nonabrasive polish available. This polish is designed to be used out in the hot sunny part of the day, and is excellent for use on dark colored cars and trucks. I have tried and used many different polishes, and none even come close to the products I use. Boats and RVs are made of fiberglass, and we use much different polishes and compounds on them; most other detailers are unaware that paint and fiberglass require different polishing chemicals and use the same for all. This is partly why our work looks so much better than theirs, and lasts so much longer.
After the polishing, we wipe off the excess polish and then cover your car or truck with a Carnauba/ Hi-Tech blend wax to give your car a deep, shiny luster that feels like silk and seals in the shine. While the wax is drying, I'll apply a non- silicone, non-solvent based rubber treatment to your tires and all exterior rubber and plastic. It is in my experience and opinion, the absolute finest product made for the treatment and protection for rubber, plastic, vinyl and leather, and it looks great while actually giving true protection from the UV rays of the sun. I will be happy to share the name of this product when I come out to detail your vehicle. Nearly all other detailers simply use a DRESSING, not a treatment. The difference is that a dressing only looks pretty, but affords little or no protection. Some of these cheap dressings will actually attract the harmful, damaging UV rays which will cause your rubber, plastic, vinyl and leather to dry, crack and wear out even faster. My grandfather always said, "You buy cheap…you get cheap." I believe he was right.
After the application of rubber treatment, wax removal is next, as is cleaning all of the windows inside and out. We'll remove the wax from exterior cracks & crevices with specialized horse hair brushes. Your door jambs are cleaned and the interior and trunk are vacuumed and briefly wiped and dusted...unless we'll be detailing your entire interior as well.
A thorough vacuum is the first step in a complete Interior Detail. Of course, we always recommend you completely empty all of your 'stuff' out of the car prior to us getting there. That way you'll save us time, and saving us time usually means saving you money! We will then either use a shampoo / steam cleaner type soil extractor, or a simple hand shampoo & scrub brush type cleaning method...or a combination of both. Either way, we are VERY thorough when it comes to detailing your interior. We'll clean the seats, carpet, under the seats, between the seats, the dash, door panels, instrument panel, air vents, steering wheel, center console, all of your buttons, knobs and ash tray, door jambs and anything else you can think of. Some headliners we will spot clean for free; others will either be thoroughly cleaned for an extra charge, and some cannot be safely cleaned at all due to the material. Your trunk always gets vacuumed if it's not too full. Vinyl and/or leather treatments are applied to your interior plastic, rubber, vinyl and leather. All windows are sparkled inside and out, and an exterior car wash, tire & rim cleaning, and tire treatment are included. We also offer interior cleaning for RVs, trailers, big rig trucks, and boats of all sizes.
Engine cleaning is one of those things that hardly anyone is doing anymore due to environmental concerns, or because it's just too messy and troublesome for the average guy to figure out. Many detailers will leave you with a greasy, oily mess and your engine won't start or run properly afterwards. With over 26 years of experience cleaning engines in cars, trucks, boats and RVs, you know you've found the right detailer!
I start out by using a citrus based product to loosen the heaviest grease and oil. I follow that with a stream of hi-pressure, cold water to loosen it further, followed by completely spraying your entire engine and compartment with a biodegradable solution that will remain a trade secret. With a terrycloth towel and an appropriate brush, I'll clean under the hood and as much of the engine and compartment as I can see and reach. I'll rinse it and then inspect my work numerous times. When I'm happy, I'll dry it off with a couple of towels and apply a rubber and plastic treatment to all of your hoses and wires to keep them from drying out and cracking. Your engine will sparkle better than new! I highly recommend this if you're going to sell your vehicle, just bought a used vehicle, looking for, or cleaning up after an oil leak. An exterior car wash is complimentary. When we are finished nothing will be left behind on the ground except for a wet spot.
