What is ‘detailing’
The term Detailing as we know can be very misunderstanding and easily mistaken as car valeting.
Quite simply the difference is that valeting is the basic cleaning of a vehicles exterior and interior to a level that it looks clean and fresh inside and out.
As this is a basic way of car cleaning, mainly carried out at your local car wash it can cause various surface damage and defects to the vehicles paintwork and wheels by the use of cheap harsh chemicals and the incorrect washing and cleaning techniques.
Here at Perfect Detail Car Care we use our experience and knowledge of the finest car care products available to achieve the best possible finish for your vehicle.
So the Art of Detailing is to restore your vehicles paintwork via various methods of paint correction using a variety of machine polishers and multi stages of polishing, then to apply protection to lock in that gloss and add reflection by the application of a fine show wax or a coating and finally to maintain that look by carrying out one of our maintenance plans.
Cross section of typical paintwork defects
When dirt, grime and even dust are not removed correctly from a vehicle, the incorrect wash process will cause the dirt particles to be moved around the paintwork causing various defects such as; wash marring, swirl marks and scratches.
Damage can also be caused to other areas by cheap car washes using harmful cleaning products such as acidic based chemicals to clean alloy wheels and lower sections of a vehicle, which over time will cause corrosion to the wheels, wheel nuts and caps, brake callipers and exhaust tips etc.
Drive in car washes and inexperienced valeting centres offer a cheap polish service via machine which is often referred to as a buff or mop in which case it would be advised to stay clear of such services, as they will cause the defects such as holograms, swirl marks and random deep scratches and more, as can be seen on the defects diagram below.
All the defects caused by any method of cleaning can be rectified by ourselves to achieve the best possible finish to your vehicle whether an every day car, supercar classic or concours show car.
