This detail is designed to serve as a comprehensive spring cleaning of your car, and includes the following major tasks:
We start out by carefully pressure washing the loose dirt and grime from the vehicle, paying particular attention to the wheels and wheel arches. The wheel rims are then meticulously cleaned with P21S Wheel Gel and a selection of soft brushes and microfibre mitts and the arches scrubbed clean with a Degreaser. The engine bay is also carefully washed at this stage, taking care to avoid water ingress into exposed electrics or intake vents.
This is followed by a foaming wash procedure whereby the vehicle is covered, top-to-bottom in a thick, soapy foam which clings to the paint and is left for 5 minutes to safely dissolve dirt and grime. This is then pressure rinsed clean, and followed by a gentle hand wash with a natural lambswool Mitt and Meguiars Shampoo Plus, with the dirt being rinsed clear of the mitt in a separate bucket after each panel. We then clay the bodywork and exterior glass to remove any bonded surface contaminants such as tar and tree sap, which leaves these surfaces perfectly clean & smooth.
We then apply a single coat of a high quality wax to the bodywork; this not only adds valuable protection against the elements for months at a time, but also significantly enhances the appearance of the paint. We then complete the exterior detail by sealing the wheels, cleaning the glass, dressing the tyres, arches and engine bay, and polishing the exhaust tips if applicable.
Finally, we clean, dress and vacuum the interior, and carefully treat any leather present. The entire procedure normally takes around 8 hours and can usually be completed in a single day.
