What Is “Paint Preparation”?
This is the process of removing all contaminants such as tar, sap, road paint, brake dust, and rail dust safely from the surface of your vehicle. Failing to remove these contaminants may allow for your paint to become damaged.
How Do I Know If My Vehicle Needs Waxing? How Long Does It Last?
When wax is applied to your vehicle, it will feel smooth and silky. Once your paint begins to feel “rough” it will require the contaminants to be removed and wax re-applied.
Depending on how frequently you wash your vehicle and if it is parked outside, the wax will last 3 - 6 months, on average.
How Long Do Your Detail Services Take?
Detailing services take approximately 1 hour per package.
How Often Should I Have My Vehicle Detailed?
While your owner’s manual will specify frequent washing, waxing and interior cleaning, the reality is that the more you use your vehicle, the more frequently it should be detailed. Waxing should occur every 6 months (twice a year), shampooing and interior cleaning every 4 - 6 months (2 - 3 times a year).
One of our detailers would be more than happy to help create a plan to keep your vehicle clean!
Can I Drop My Vehicle Off and Leave It?
For detail services, you can drop your vehicle off anytime and a detailer will be able to tell you when it will be ready for pickup.
What Is the Difference between Waxing and Polishing?
Waxing is simply a level of protection to help reduce possible paint damage from bugs, bird droppings, etc.
Polishing involves the use of a mildly abrasive polishing compound to correct paint damage and then bring your paint to a high gloss. Polishing is recommended to correct some paint damage. A Chamois detailer will be more than happy to evaluate your vehicle.
