Where Can I Go To Have Auto Detailing Done

When the car is polished, waxed and cleaned on the inside as well as the outside intensely, this is referred to auto detailing. The detailing is done so well it looks as if the owner is going to show the car at an auto show. There are at least a couple of reasons why people have such intense car cleaning done and that is to satisfy themselves or to show the car. To bring your car to an auto show its appearance has to be flawless. Auto detailing, if done correctly, can preserve the car thereby giving it a longer life. It also increases the value of the car in the event of a sale.

A professional detailer is the one that can do the best job of auto detailing, although, you can do our own detailing. Many of the professional detailers are franchisees and others, the independent detailers are those the work out of their own garages, vacant parking lots or other vacant places and do not usually have a permanent business address. In the United States, it is estimated that there are some fifty thousand auto detailers. In the United Kingdom auto detailers are known as “car valets” and the work they do is known as “car or auto valeting.”

When auto detailing is done to the exterior of the car it is done so that the paint and the chrome trim on the car will shine as it did when it was new. The scratches and sticky gunk on the windows are removed and the windows are spotless. The wheels and tires should also be cleaned to look as if they were new. The supplies used by auto detailers include: ordinary detergents, specific detail clay, a variety of waxes and polishes, special cloths and applicators made of various fibers and consistencies.

Even though there is not as much for an auto detailer to do in detailing the interior of the car it has to be just as intensely cleaned as the exterior. The interior’s heaviest concentration is on the passenger side, the upholstery and the carpeting. Vacuuming is a standard procedure in detailing the interior. Much of the interior is steam cleaned. A liquid cleaner and various brushes are used to remove stains from carpeting and upholstery and the non porous surfaces are polished.

There are three things that auto detailers do when detailing an automobile and that is to clean, polish and protect the automobile. It has to be cleaned of all the clinging dirt and debris such as bug carcasses that have adhered to the car, heavy dirt and tar and all other contaminants that have been picked up over time and may harm the exterior of the car. A thorough cleaning ensures that all of the clinging dirt and droppings are cleaned and there is no sign of them ever being there. Auto detailing goes far beyond the simple car wash.
