Frequently Asked Questions
Ask a Question
What types of vehicles do you detail?
We cater to all kinds of cars & bikes, Maybe we detail all kinds of vehicles except multiwheelers. Although many detailers accept all kinds of vehicles, some specialize only in certain types, makes, and models. It wouldn’t hurt to make sure they do handle the type of vehicle you have before driving all the way to their workshop.
What types of damage on my car exterior can detailing fix?
A detailer will try to fix a multitude of different kinds of damage on the exterior and interior surface of your vehicle – ranging from light corrosion marks left by bird poo and tree sap to swirls, marring, and scratches.
These imperfections are repaired by performing a machine polishing and paint correction service with specific cutting and polishing compounds, depending on the kind of paint being worked on.
When it comes to painting chips, dings, or dents, touch up specialist and paint-less dent removal technician will be required. For your convenience, Clean Getaway has access to all these services for you to utilize under one roof at their Ultimate Detailing Workshop.
How long does it take to finish?
Unlike car washes, which normally last for 45 minutes or less, car detailing may take up to a whole day to finish. For ceramic paint protection services, the vehicle will often then need to ‘cure’ overnight as well. This is quite understandable considering the different processes your car has to go through to regain its pristine appeal. Before taking your car to a car detailing workshop, make sure you ask them how long the process will take, so that you can plan your day accordingly.
Which is better – wax, sealant, or ceramic coating?
The last phase of the car detailing process is the application of paint protection. Your car detailer wants to make sure that any repair they did on your car’s exterior will not oxidize too quickly, as well as offering additional protection from UV Rays to reduce paint fading. Applying paint protection seals-in the repair works, making your car appear brand new for longer.
There are a few types of paint protection they can use – carnauba wax, a polymer sealant, or a professional ceramic coating. While all three can provide a smooth, shiny finish to the exterior surfaces, a ceramic coating is a much harder coating that will protect from light scratches, while also acting as a durable UV shield to prevent paint fading. Ceramic paint protection that is hydrophobic will also cause “water beading”, which makes the vehicle much easier and faster to clean. Once applied, the coating will cure and turn completely transparent (often called a “glass” finish), giving you a brilliant sparkle and long-lasting protection. Prominent car detailers, such as Clean Getaway, use the highest quality paint protection products to achieve outstanding results.
How do you clean leather surfaces?
Experienced detailers know that each of the materials that comprise your vehicle’s exterior and interior surfaces requires a particular type of cleaning or polishing agent. Especially when cleaning or restoring leather, using the right chemical is critical to avoid damaging the material or pushing dirt and oil deeper into it. Make sure that the detailer has all the necessary cleaning products in their workshop.
