Clay bar treatment
If you have been neglecting your car, some contaminants grip and even penetrate the clear coat. Detailing clay safely removes these contaminants from the paint and leaves your vehicle feeling slick. All paint finishes are subject to contamination from a variety of chemical, industrial and environmental pollutions, such as tree sap, bird droppings, salt, acid rain and metal flake particles. Even volcanic ash fallout! These pollutants cannot be removed by washing and polishing, they require a clay bar specifically designed to lift these particles away from the paintwork.

Leather Upholstery Cleaned/Treated
Maintaining and cleaning leather seats can be a hassle if you are not prepared for the task. There are many cleaning products and techniques, but you don’t want to risk damaging your expensive leather. There are four main leather types that are commonly used in car seats: Aniline, Semi-Aniline, Full-Grain, and Corrected Grain Leather. Knowing which leather your car seats are made from is a crucial step in how to clean and maintain it. You’ll find that your driver seat looks the worst, because it’s most frequently used. Every time the driver gets into their car, they scratch the backrest and sometimes the armrests. This, over time, can produce cracks if you don’t clean and maintain your seats. First we will clean the seat removing body oils, sweat, stains and spills. Then we will apply a leather balm to protect and lock in the clean crisp finish.
Polishing is the process of creating a smooth and shiny surface by rubbing it or using a chemical action, leaving the surface with a significant specular reflection.
