Exterior detailing involves cleaning and bringing a shine to the car’s paint, chrome trim, windows, wheels, and even tires. To do this different detailers use different products, including detergents, detail clay, waxes, and polishes, as well as a variety of applicators and special cloths.
Interior detailing involves cleaning the passenger compartment of the car. Vacuuming is standard, and liquid & foam cleaners and brushes may be used to remove stains on upholstery. Some nonporous surfaces may also be polished. Areas covered include the Dashboard, A/C Vents, Roof, Carpet, Matting, Door Panels, Seat Fabric, Seat Belts, etc. Leather Seats are also cleaned and conditioned using special Leather Conditioners.
It is important to note the three main components of exterior car detailing, which are Cleaning, Correcting and Protecting:
Refers to removing all foreign surface particles from exterior surfaces through the use of washing and quick detailing. A clay bar helps to clean contamination/ dirt from within the clearcoat that cannot be removed through weekly washing. Clearcoat contamination can come from industrial fallout, air particles, dirt particles, tar, and bird droppings.
Refers to using mechanical polishes by hand or with a machine and specific polishing pads that remove a fine layer of clearcoat from a vehicle to remove fine scratches and swirls from a paint surface produced from improper washing or drying technique
Involves the application of a protective material (in liquid or paste form) that prevents foreign matter from adhering to the surface of the vehicle, including water, bugs splatter, tar, and dirt. Waxes and sealants provide this barrier against the elements
