Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What is detailing services, and are they really necessary?
Answer: Detailing services can restore virtually any car back to showroom quality, or close to it, even if your car has been exposed to a troop of messy kids for years. The interior is thoroughly scoured: carpets, floor mats and seats are cleaned, shampooed and deodorized, and panels and vents are dusted and conditioned. The exterior is hand washed and buffed to removes scratches. A wax and/or polish follows. An appointment can range from two hours to all day. To maintain the value of your car, professional details are recommended at least once a year, preferably twice.
Question: If my car has a high gloss clear coat finish, do I still need to wax it?
Answer: Yes. Most new cars have a clear coat finish, however this can be easily damaged by acid rain. Even with minimal time outdoors, any clear coat finish will begin to deteriorate after two years. The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays, salt and road grime also damage cars. Wax is an effective and efficient way to shine and protect your car's finish. It is recommended that a car receive a professional reconditioning or paint protection (wax and/or polish) once or twice a year, along with professional car wash at least once or twice a month.
Question: Does wax really make a difference?
Answer: Wax is essential for protecting the exterior of your car. It creates a barrier against the sun's UV and infrared rays, and makes cleaning so much easier. In addition, it will enhance the appearance of your vehicle by giving it a nice, shiny luster.
Question: Why do car finishes fade?
Answer: Paint is designed to reflect light, which creates a shine. Ultraviolet (UV) light affects paint and the way visible light is reflected. If your car is washed regularly and kept indoors most of the time, the shine will last for many years since there would be minimal oxidation or element damage to the finish that would stain, spot or dull the finish.
Question: When does detailing become important?
Answer: From the moment that you purchase your car. Imagine the fallout that builds up on your new or pre-owned car from sitting on a dealerships lot, your vehicle sits on the lot with no protection until the time of purchase.
Question: How often should I wash my vehicle?
Answer: 1st thing 1st! Setup a good wash program. CHOOSE premium products. Washing your vehicle is very important. You must keep dust, dirt and grime from adhering itself to your paint and possibly damaging your paint. Your car should be washed once a week or at least twice per month to prevent any dirt buildup and paint damage.
