Interior / Exterior Detailing

We understand that cleanliness is an important factor in your everyday life. While your vehicle is used for transportation, a common practice is to eat or drink while going from point A to B. The focus is on the road, food sometimes end up on the floor or crevices, this is normal. One of our detailing packages will be sure to fit your wallet. Our on-location service means you can resume your day and carry on with your daily activities.

How do we remove Salt Stains?

Salt is primarily used by municipalities on roads to soften or melt the ice or snow and increase the traction of rubber on the pavement. Unavoidably, it will end up in your vehicle. Salt is water soluble. Think of the disappearing crystals when you throw a handful of salt in boiling water. The reverse is true, pouring boiling water on the salt stain of a carpet will dissolve the stain. Salty water must then be removed to prevent re-crystallization.

Exterior Detailing:

Exterior detailing is more physically intense than interior detailing. The process consist of polishing the exterior clear coat on the paint until it becomes shiny again. Our process is designed so that your car paint can never be damaged. We polish your car exterior multiple times, refining it every time. Think of a piece of wood that you sand for refinishing. You will start with a coarse sandpaper ( say grid 80) and will progressively use finer paper ( example 120,180,220, grid sandpaper) to eventually result in a smooth finish to the touch and look. It does not stop here, you will then apply a finishing coat to protect the smooth surface (for example wax or urethane).

Our exterior detailing process is similar. The foam pads we use on our orbital polisher are gradually finer and the finishing we use are wax or paint sealer. The later one is man made and is more durable than wax. The duration of a paint sealer protection is typically 8 to 10 months while a coat of wax typically preserve the finish for about 3 months.

Removing scratches:

Scratches are never removed. They are toned down so it is less visible. We use a “scratch removing compound” (wrongly identified but you get the point:) to tone them down. Only scratches that are superficial can be toned down. A rule of “thumb” is to slide your nail above the scratch and anything that catches the nail is too deep. The scratch will typically remain visible.
