Some people will go their entire lives and never have their vehicle detailed. However, most people who have their vehicle detailed just once will quickly turn into repeat customers. The thing is, there is nothing quite as satisfying as getting into a vehicle that looks and smells as clean as it was the day you bought it. This kind of satisfaction easily turns into something that most auto owners want to experience again. Here is a look at some of the most common questions new customers have about auto detailing.
Will the professional detail under the hood?
Under-hood detailing is typically not part of standard detailing services, but most companies will offer cleaning under the hood for a bit more money. If you are preparing to sell your vehicle, having the top of the motor cleaned can be a really smart move. Most buyers are turned off by an engine that looks like it is coated in soot and grease.
Does auto detailing involve exterior and interior cleaning?
Yes, in general, professional auto detailing will mean you get your vehicle cleaned both inside and out. Your car will be washed and waxed outside and cleaned with great detail inside. The professional will also take all the extra steps to clean your wheels and tires, clean any trim pieces on the outside of the vehicle, and clean all the windows.
Can detailing get rid of stains?
Some people spend several hours a day in their vehicle, and spills and stains can and do happen. If you have stains on the upholstery on your seats or on the carpeted floor, you can ask the auto detailing professional if they could remove the stains. Some service providers will do upholstery cleaning, but this may not be part of the standard service package. Most professionals can look at a stain and let you know right off if they feel that they can help you remove it.
Can you have the vehicle detailed in a green-friendly way?
If you do a lot to make sure you are kind to the environment, it is only natural that you want the same ideas applied when you receive service from someone else. Thankfully, there are auto detailing professionals that offer "earth-friendly" services. The vehicle will be cleaned with products made from ingredients that are not harmful to the environment, and some companies have water-recapturing systems to avoid excessive water consumption.
