Is Auto Detailing Worth It?

Everybody likes a clean car. Something about seeing your car shine on the inside and out makes a big difference. You can always take it through the automatic car wash, and vacuum it out yourself. However, nothing will work as well at restoring your car to a beautiful state as professional auto detailing. Cleaning and restoring a vehicle to like-new condition is what professional car detailing is all about. Car detailing is far more precise and time-consuming than a standard car wash. Your professional auto detailer works on the interior and exterior of your vehicle by hand to give you the best possible service.

What Car Detailing Services Does Professional Car Detailing Include?

Anyone can detail a car by cleaning it thoroughly on the inside and outside. However, a skilled detailer has access to the proper procedures and high-quality supplies. Professional detailing services, like what we offer at Capital Tint & Customs, generally prepare bundles and pricing for the services they intend to provide in advance. 

Here are some of the most common car detailing services offered by professional detailers:

Exterior Services 

Exterior wash and dry — This is a hand-washing and drying technique. The detailer will use specialist products to spray and wipe off the car’s body. It is best to wash rims, door handles, and glass by hand.

Paint Claying – Your detailer uses a clay bar to remove pollutants, overspray and residue after cleaning the car. Claying creates a cleaner, smoother surface and helps polish and wax work more effectively.

Polishing removes thin layers of clear coat by buffing an abrasive substance over the car’s paint. Small scratches and swirls in the paint vanish as a result of this.

Sealing or waxing – A sealer is applied to the car’s paint to give it a glossy sheen and to add a protective coating. The car’s paint will receive a sealer to add a glossy sheen and protective coating. Wax may also be added.

Some of the other external treatments that can be added are trim repainting, engine detailing, headlight polishing, engine cleaning, bumper repair, glass chip repair, and paint touch ups.

Interior Services

Vacuuming – Removing debris by cleaning and vacuuming the carpets, mats, headliner, and trunk.

Stain Removal – Your detailer will remove stains from the carpets and mats using scrubs and brushes.

Steam Cleaning – When it comes to eliminating difficult stains from carpets and seats, steam cleaning is more effective.

Glass Cleaning- Cleaning the windshield and windows.

Leather Trimming – Cleaning any leather items with leather cleaner and soap.

Perfuming – To leave a car smelling clean and new, many detailers spray a deodorant into the interior.
