Car Detailing

Car Detailing: CARS 360 PARTNING WITH 
 
I. What is Car Detailing?
Simply put, getting your car detailed means a top-to-bottom thorough cleaning of your vehicle using specialized tools and products. Normally, a detailer will also perform some light cosmetic touch-ups, but the process does not include paintwork or body repairs. Car detailing involves cleaning and reconditioning the interior and exterior of the car. The aim of this is to restore the paintwork by eliminating scratches or swirl marks to make the car look almost brand new like it did when you first drove it out of the shop.
II. What is the difference between a Car Wash and an Auto Detail?
Now that you know what car detailing is, we are going to quickly outline the differences between a car wash and auto detailing, before going on to talk some more about why car detailing is a seriously good idea.
Here at Car 360 , we get asked a lot of questions. There is one question that keeps popping up, however:
 
“What is the difference between car detailing and car washing?”
 
We realize that for most non-car enthusiasts, the difference probably isn't very significant. However, all car owners, enthusiasts or not, should look at getting their car fully detailed every so often, and should also perform smaller details regularly to have their car looking at its best all the time.
So, to help our customers understand the many benefits of car detailing, also known as auto-detailing, we are going to outline what you can expect when you choose to have your car detailed. Trust us when we say that you'll never go back to normal washing!

Car detailing involves cleaning and reconditioning the interior and exterior of the car. The aim of this is to restore the paintwork by eliminating scratches or swirl marks to make the car look almost brand new like it did when you first drove it out of the shop.
A simple car wash gets rid of dirt on the outside of your car, and if you clean the interior you might catch some of the grime with a vacuum, but car detailing takes this process much further. Every car we detail has every last imperfection buffed, polished, or vacuumed out, leaving it fit for display in any showroom.
Since there are no set guidelines, you will see a great variety in terms of the services included in a complete detail. At Washos, our complete detail package consists of an exterior detailing using clay treatment and high-end wax, an advanced interior cleaning with stain removal and leather treatment as well as dressing on all the plastics.

Aside from cost, which ranges from $10 to $40, a typical car wash only covers a fraction of the cleaning that you can get from a detail, and so only achieves a fraction of the result.
CAR WASH
 
So what does a car wash include?

III. What are the steps in Auto Detailing?
 
Athorough car detailing consists of two main phases: interior detailing and exterior detailing. We are going to break down each phase so you know exactly what to expect when you get your vehicle detailed. Feel free to ask your technician if you have any questions about the process, as most of them love to share their art of detailing with others.
 
Exterior Car Detailing:
We begin with an exhaustive exterior wash to remove as much dirt as possible. By allowing the soap to foam, dirt and mud are softened and lifted off the surface.
Next, using special brushes and wheel cleaning products, the detailer takes off all the dust and filth from the wheels; brake calipers, lug nuts, etc. The wheels are usually the dirtiest parts of the car!
After the wheels have been cleaned, the paintwork is washed and dried from top to bottom using washing mitts and soft microfiber towels. The paintwork is then clayed using automotive clay barthat removes the tightly bonded dirt of the surface of the car, which is your car's clear coat. If required, the paint is polished to eliminate any light scratches, oxidation, and swirl marks. The paint can be polished by hand or by a polishing machine. This can be the most time-consuming part of the detailing service depending on the car and the state of its paintwork.
Finally, the paint is waxed to give it an additional protective layer using high-quality carnauba based paste wax. This added protection results in a noticeable shine too, the kind that you saw when you first bought it!
The remaining exterior parts, like the windows and other rubber parts, are then polished and methodically cleaned, adding the finishing touches in all the corners of the car's body and exterior trim to make the entire car sparkle.
 
Interior Car Detailing
 
All of the upholstery inside the car is thoroughly vacuumed and shampooed to remove stains and dirt. If the car has leatherwork, this is often conditioned and scrubbed to remove dirt that is deeply ingrained. Plastics and vinyl are also properly cleaned and dressed.
 
Lastly, the interior glass is also cleaned and polished.
 
An Important Optional Step
 
Cleaning the engine bay is an important step but a lot of people simply don't do it. The reason for this is probably that some people don't care what their car looks like under the hood, or that they think only mechanics should venture to clean anywhere under there.
 
Having the engine bay cleaned can make identifying any engine problems easier and faster. Mechanics love working in a clean engine bay, and if the car owner is having the car detailed before selling, a clean engine bay can make a big impression on how well maintained a car is. Anyone that purchases a used vehicle will likely glance under the hood, and a clean engine bay can only raise the value However, there are steps you can take when you have your car detailed to protect some components from wear and tear. The detailer cleans the engine bay by lightly spraying it with water, and then wiping it down with a degreaser before rinsing everything clean. Once properly dried, all silicone, plastic and rubber components should be properly dressed to protect them from cracking. This is a simple process that ultimately serves to protect the car from everyday problems of wear on rubber and silicone.
 
IV. What are the benefits of getting your car detailed?
 
A complete car detail will bring your car to its best condition. You can then perform mini details to keep your car looking as good as new.
 
Car Value
Keeping your car in good condition will help maintain or restore the value of your car. This is particularly true of older or classic cars, especially if you're looking to sell your car in the future. You simply cannot get the same results from car washes. A good detailer will bring your car to its original beauty and increase its resale value.
 
Protection
Another benefit of auto detailing is the added protection against the elements. When a wax coat is routinely applied to the exterior painted surface, it protects the finish from contamination and oxidation (rust).
 
Conclusion
While we have only scratched the surface of detailing, the world of auto detailing is very exciting and highly detailed. There are tons of forums where you can find in-depth guides for all of the different parts of the detailing process, or you can ask other car enthusiasts about car detailing.

Exterior that Matters
waxing your car, remains one of the most  effective  ways  to  keep  it looking like new. The wax protects the paint against roadside pollutants while also combating the sun's ultraviolet radiation. Waxing will also prevent dirt and grit from sticking to your vehicle, which can protect your paint from pit damage. When you don't wax your car, grime left on your car can damage the paint job.
The idea is to provide a “sacrificial layer” to take abuse that might otherwise damage the clear coat. In addition, properly applied wax can cover small scratches or light blemishes. Eco SafaiPlus Car Care's UV Treatment uses a protective coat on the car's exterior, which repels bird droppings, heat, acid rain and road salt, making it easy to clean.

Interior Germ Clean
 
Stop germs from making your car unsafe! On a daily basis, most of us spend at least 3 - 4 hours inside our cars as we travel through muddy water, potholed roads and smoggy traffic jams. But that's not the only way germs gain entry into our cars, they also appear when we snack inside our cars or travel with our pets, etc.
We do take care of our cars. Clean them, dry them, wax them. But simply cleaning the exterior of our car isn't good enough. Even though we spend the most time beautifying the car exterior, we do not realize that the interiors need to be cleaned too; after all, that's where we spend most of our time!
Research shows that the interiors of a car are the ideal breeding ground for germs. They appear unnoticed, around empty juice and water bottles, used tissues in storage areas and crumbs of food we dust off when we eat in our cars.
These germs are invisible to the eye and they breed on carpets, seat covers and under the seats. Left untreated, these germs can become the cause for diseases like asthma and allergies.

Head Lights Restoration
 
Uses and Benefits of Headlight Restoration:
Are your car highlights discolored or scratched? Or, are you really missing the brightness they once had? If you confront these problems, it indicates that you need to handle the case straight away so that it doesn't hinder your chance to enjoy some amazing night rides. And, one ideal way to get rid of the headlight hassles is its restoration.
 
What is headlight Restoration?
It is a process of cleaning, sanding and polishing the lights in order to eliminate pollution and maintain its condition for ages. During the process, clear protective coating is applied to make the light look like a new one. If nicely executed, the restoration will bring back the original lighting performance of your car's headlight and enhance the cosmetic appearance.
 
Problems
Today' headlights are made of polycarbonate, which is more vulnerable to environmental factors than glass. There is a gamut of factors that contribute to the discoloration and to the oxidation of the protective coating placed on the lens. The major hazards are sunlight, humidity, acid rain, cleaning chemicals, road debris and tiny insects. For your information, discoloration and oxidation can lower the headlight's capability to project light, which significantly decreases nighttime  effectiveness. In severe cases, they can even ruin the original protective coating and damage the lens surface.
 
Benefits of Headlight Restoration
Headlight restoration is absolutely important – especially if you are heavily relying on your old headlights and you don't have enough bucks to purchase new ones. By restoring your headlight, you can bring back the newness of your vehicle's headlights. It is one ideal source of the aesthetic attraction of your car. It also enhances the quality of light. Restoration not just improves the output of badly hazed headlights of up to 40% but also boosts the appearance of the front end of your vehicle.
