Car Detailing | Protech Car Care
Car Detailing is such a large industry in Melbourne and has been for the last few decades. There is no one way to describe what car detailing really is because of the amount of processes involved. These processes are used for car exterior, car interior and running gear.
Exterior Car Detailing is commonly thought of as a standard cut & polish but as professionals will tell you, there is far more, especially with the terrain and weather Melbourne produces. Professional Exterior Car Detailing involves intricate buffing of every panel on the car to either bring shine or remove scratches without leaving swirls or buff marks. This process is then generally followed by a hand polish to deepen the car's shine. Paint Protection & Overspray Removal are also regarded as Exterior Car Detailing.
Interior Car Detailing has many different procedures, far more than just a wipe over the dash and a vacuum. Steam Cleaning of the seats, carpets, door fabrics and headlining are common practise with a professional detailer as well as dashboard and vinyl cleansing.
The best detailers will use gentle chemicals and take their time when interior car detailing because of the interior's delicate nature. Odour Removal from impurities such as Milk, Urine, Smoke & Vomit are also undertaken by professional car detailers and should not be left to those who are inexperienced because of the difficulty of killing the bacteria without ruining the car's fabric.
Detailing the car's engine and underbody can be a very dangerous process due to the amount of electrical leads and potential hazards so make sure when choosing a detailer to check if they are properly qualified to do this sort of job.
Engine and Underbody steam cleaning is essentially a heavy duty degreasing and cleansing of all the running gear, so as this suggests the car is thoroughly degreased to get in every corner, crack and crevasse and then steamed with medium to low pressure at a high temperature. The engine should then be dried properly and if the customer wishes, dressed for aesthetic appeal.
So when the time comes to choose a detailer, make sure they meet all the criteria you are after and never choose second best. You definitely always get what you pay for in Car Detailing.
