Detailing in summary is the systematic cleansing, perfecting and protecting of all surfaces and areas of your vehicle. It is a service with many intricate stages that can take anything from 1 full day to 1 full week to complete depending on the level of service desired, the condition of the vehicle and the needs from you the owner.
It is a service that completely transforms the condition, appearance and maximises the value of your vehicle.
Why choose to have your vehicle detailed?
Is detailing the same as valeting?
No, it is very different. A valeter is someone who provides a service to a car owner and will clean the car so that all visible grime is removed from most areas. Some stages of the Detailers process are similar in part but far different in terms of the level of attention paid to detail and the tools and equipment used. Visibly clean is where valeting ends and detailing takes over.
The next time you wash your vehicle or have it washed take a look at your car a little closer - scrutinise the finish under bright direct sunlight or under the harsh lighting of a petrol station. The next time you are in a car showroom look closely at the paintwork as the bright lights shine onto it - What do you see?
Swirl Marks/Fine Scratches
Paintwork correction is the reduction or removal of marks in the top layer of paint to produce a more refined finish.
Paint correction can involve either the hand or machine application of varying grades of cleanser, polish or compound. The majority of work is usually done with rotary machine polishers to get the best level of correction.
Good paint correction requires a high degree of skill and concentration, but done properly, it really can transform the look of a car by dealing with (amongst other things); hard water marks, etching caused by bird muck or fly squash, swirl marks, scratches and fading. Done professionally, paint correction is entirely safe and will not cause any issues for your paint.
A car's paint has to deal with a lot of environmental challenges:
Sadly all of these things can leave the finish of a car looking less than perfect and at worst, dull, faded and covered in light scratches, Not only does this detract from your car's appearance but it ultimately reduces its value as well.
For the vast majority of cars, paint correction really can make a substantial difference and will completely remove or significantly reduce most marks. Not only this, but the resulting finish will have an amazing gloss, depth of reflection and slickness.
