Do You Perform Maintenance Washes?
Yes! After we have performed a full detail on your vehicle, we can perform maintenance washes for you. We carefully select the tools and techniques we use to minimize swirls and marring.
What Is a Maintenance Wash, and What Is Included In a Maintenance Wash?
A maintenance wash typically includes steps like a standard car wash, such as soap, water, and drying. However, it also usually includes additional services, such as waxing and polishing. Maintenance washing is designed to help maintain the cleanliness of a vehicle after it has received a full detail, or a thorough cleaning and finishing both inside and out.
Word of Mouth Detailing includes the following in a maintenance wash:
- Thorough wash of all exterior surfaces (microfiber mitts and grit guards) Wheels are cleaned (behind the spoked too)
- All cracks, crevices, emblems, etc. are blown with compressed air to minimize dripping
- A drying aid is used to boost protection and slickness while drying (minimizing marring) with high quality microfiber towels
- All door jams, trunk jam, and gas filler door areas are wiped dry
- All interior surfaces are wiped down
- All carpets are vacuumed
- Luggage area vacuumed
- All glass cleaned inside and out
- Tires are dressed
Why Do You Require That a Vehicle Be Detailed Before Performing a Maintenance Wash?
In order to be efficient and keep costs down for such a minimal service, it is imperative that a vehicle be cleaned to our standards before we move into maintenance. A vehicle must be detailed before performing a maintenance wash to ensure that all dirt, debris, and other foreign objects are removed from the surface. It is important because these objects can cause scratches or damage to the vehicle during the washing process. If the wheels and wheel wells have not been deep cleaned recently or if door jams have not been cleaned and sealed it takes longer to wipe out which increases time and labor. In addition, a thorough detailing will also remove any wax or protective coating on the vehicle, which is necessary for the maintenance wash to be effective.
We want to ensure that we are as efficient as possible while providing the best results to our customers.
