Detailing vs. a car wash

Immaculate Auto Detail is Prescott’s full service auto detailing service providing a world class experience and excellent results.
There’s a tremendous difference between a general car wash and getting your car ‘detailed’ – and the name says it all. If you want your car looking its very best, Immaculate Auto Detail, your local Prescott detailing service, explains why detailing is much more than a car wash.

Car wash vs. detailing
A quick and easy car wash gets rid of most of the dirt on the outside of your car, if you don’t count the tires, bug goo and fenders, etc. and will pick up some of the mess on the inside with a fast vacuum, dusting, and window washing. Car detailing takes cleaning to a whole other level. Typical car washes take about 10 to 20 minutes from washing to drying and results in, ‘It’s better than it was’. You can expect it to take at least two hours for your car to be detailed and the results might make you think your car just came off the showroom floor.

After an exhaustive and comprehensive exterior washing including your tires, wheels, and wheel wells, your technician will move on to the paintwork to buff out any light scratches, swirl marks and oxidation. The most time-consuming aspect of detailing your car can often be polishing and waxing your paintwork. The remaining factors of your car’s exterior including rubber components and glass are meticulously cleaned to leave the entire exterior sparkling like new.

All of your car’s upholstery and carpeting is vacuumed and shampooed to remove any dirt and stains. Leather interiors are scrubbed clean to remove any ingrained dirt and then conditioned to give your interior long-lasting life. The dash, air vents, cup holders, doors, interior compartments and mats are all cleaned to their original condition. All interior glass is also cleaned and polished to a shine.

Cleaning the engine compartment can help identify engine problems easier and faster. And if you’re selling your car, a clean engine compartment can make a big impression on how well maintained your car is.
