Car, Boat or SUV Detailing

Car Detailing is a skill that requires years of experience to master. It goes beyond standard wash and wax. To properly detail a car, boat, or SUV it takes a special touch and an eye for perfection. Just like bonsai and Japanese rock gardening (Ku Shan Shui, Karesansui) it is an art form.

Auto detailing is a meticulous cleaning process that removes small scratches and buffs out swirl marks. It improves the appearance of a vehicle and adds longevity to the paint finish. The result is a clean and polished finish that increases resale value. Investing in a detailing service will save you time and money in the long run by protecting your investment and keeping your ride looking brand new.

In addition to washing and waxing, the professional detailer will use a clay bar to remove any contaminants from your paint. This will prevent stains from being embedded in your clear coat and discoloring it. It will also allow the polisher to work more effectively and not scratch off the protective layer. This step is very important and should never be skipped.

Another important part of the boat detailing process is the removal of any stains that have formed on the gel coat, fiberglass, or upholstery. A good detailer will thoroughly saturate these areas with a degreaser, let it soak in for 5-10 minutes, and then scrub the area using a soft bristle brush. This will remove all the accumulated dirt and grime that has built up over time.

Once the degreasing and scrubbing are complete, it is time to rinse and dry the area. It is important to note that the surfaces should always be rinsed and dried in the shade or in indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight causes the products to evaporate too quickly and can create surface marking. The temperature of the water should be warm, but not hot.

During the car detailing process, the professional will also clean all the windows inside and out. They will also vacuum the interior of the vehicle and wipe down the dashboard, center console, and instrument gauges. Lastly, they will buff and polish the entire exterior of the vehicle. This will remove any swirls, scratch marks or blemishes from the clear coat as well as the painted surfaces.

A final step in the detailing process is to apply a high-quality coat of protectant to the paint and glass. This will help to protect the painted surface from the sun’s UV rays and keep it looking great for years to come. This is especially important for boats that spend a lot of time out on the water.
