Car Detailing: What Is The Difference From a Conventional Car Wash

If you want to bring your car to a near-new condition, improve its appearance, protect it from damage, and keep its value at a high level, then you need detailing. This is a popular and useful service that will allow you to maintain not only cleanliness in the car but also an excellent appearance.  So, if you want to keep the beauty of your new car and are looking for a company to get cash for junk cars in Memphis, this article is for you. 

Who Needs Auto Detailing?

Detailing is one way to minimize traces of daily use. This will not only make the car look more attractive on the outside, but it can also extend the life of some interior and exterior elements. For example, to keep the integrity of covers, plastic and wooden interior parts, and metal trim longer. Therefore, detailers are primarily needed by those who want their cars to look as fresh as possible, regardless of the year of manufacture.

This service is required in the following cases:

  • during pre-sale preparation of the car – after properly performed detailing, the car often looks better than new, which causes more confidence among buyers;
  • caring for exhibition specimens, which are stored indoors most of the time under a cover;
  • preparation for long-term conservation – to slow down the aging process of materials, especially textiles, natural and artificial leather;
  • to restore the appearance after accidents, poor-quality body painting.

Types of Detailing

The works are divided according to the elements of the car that they affect. The most common options are detailing of the body and interior. But there are also more exotic requests – for example, putting rims in order.

Car Body Detailing

When it comes to the body, special attention is paid to the following aspects:

  1. Washing. The entire surface of the car is thoroughly cleaned from dirt in the direction from the roof to the wheels – from the cleanest area to the dirtiest. This is done so that solid particles of dust and dirt do not scratch the paint and chrome parts during further work.
  2. Removal of ingrained contaminants. Detailers use special shampoos to deal with dirt, and if they can’t cope, solvents and other chemicals are used. They are used to remove stains from linden and poplar, bitumen, lime, traces of oils, fuel oil, and other contaminants that cannot be washed off even with professional detergents.
  3. Polishing. Nozzle and paste are selected individually for each type of surface. Such polishing restores shine even to the old coating, which has already become matte from numerous scratches.
  4. Tint. After all the outer surfaces are washed, the body is inspected for chips, scratches, abrasions, rust, traces of soot, and exhaust, if necessary, they are repaired using enamel of a suitable color. Headlights, glass, and chrome are also polished, but with other pastes, which are much tougher than those used for paintwork. These parts are processed separately from each other. Plastic can be processed in three stages – it is polished, scratches are filled in, and, if necessary, tinted to the factory state.
  5. Applying protection. After all the cleaning procedures and the elimination of surface defects, detailers apply a protective polymer coating – the so-called “anti-rain”, “ceramics”, “liquid glass” or special wax. This coating will fill in the remaining microcracks, prevent direct contact with the varnish with road dust and moisture, and also help the car stay clean longer.
  6. Dry cleaning of rims. With the help of mild solvents, road reagents, traces of oils, fuel oil, gasoline, and other persistent contaminants are removed from the surface of the disks. Thanks to the availability of professional equipment, even hard-to-reach places are cleaned. In the end, a protective coating is applied that repels water, dirt, and oil products, and protects the surface from salt. If necessary, blackening of tires and plastic caps is performed.
  7. Exhaust pipe cleaning. Traces of soot, oils, and dirt are removed, if necessary, the surface is polished and a dirt-repellent coating is applied.
  8. Underhood cleaning. It includes washing the engine, the inside of the hood, and the motor shield using a variety of specialized shampoos. They can have a hydrophobic effect, which prevents electronic components from getting wet and reduces the risk of engine damage. Then a protective composition is applied to the surface, which repels dirt and moisture, preventing it from accumulating under the hood of the car.

Car Interior Detailing

Interior details require even more attention. Dust collects in the upholstery and deflectors, sand and reagents accumulate in the carpet, and the leather of the steering wheel and seats are rubbed and covered with grease from constant contact with hands and clothes. The lower part of the cabin also requires a lot of attention, as it constantly comes into contact with the dirty shoes of passengers. Therefore, everything – from the ceiling to the floor – requires thorough cleaning. Detailing the car interior consists of several stages.

First, all accessible interior elements get rid of dirt particles that have accumulated on the surface. To do this, use a powerful professional vacuum cleaner. Narrow gaps and cavities are treated with brushes moistened with a cleaning solution. Then the specialists move on to stubborn stains. Leave-in foam products are suitable for various woven fabrics. They are applied directly to the skin and, if necessary, additionally distributed with brushes, cleaning the dirt from the threads.

The skin is washed with special cleaners without solvents and then impregnated with a cream or lotion. This keeps it hydrated and less prone to cracking. There are also special products for plastic and rubber. Some products have a cleaning effect, while others have a matting, conditioning, and antistatic effect (for plastic) or softening (for rubber).

Finally, in the cabin, the matter may not be limited to cleaning alone. If necessary, worn areas of the skin are tinted or even altered.

In case you are looking for a trustworthy car buyer in Memphis or other city, consider Junkcarsus, and get top cash for your junk car.

Final Thoughts

The range of detailing works is quite extensive and therefore requires a lot of time. The set of procedures may differ depending on the qualifications of the detailers, the equipment of the detailing center, and the wishes of the car owner. If you want to sell your old car and buy a new one that you will surround with care and attention, we recommend that you contact JunkCarsUs. This is a company that gives cash for junk cars in Memphis, as well as other cities.
