Importance of Proper Exterior Detailing
Drive-through brush carwashes often damage vehicle's clear coat leaving an enormous amount of scratches and swirls. Touchless carwashes are better however often are uncapable of removing static dirt while applying unnecessary wax sealing the grimes.

Exterior Auto Detailing in Ottawa
A clean and well-maintained car is the key to its long service life. Each auto owner has their own ways of car care: someone outsources its to a professional car detailer, someone likes a regular drive-through car wash, and there are those who cope with it on their own. Today we will understand the main differences between detailing and a regular car wash.
So what is detailing? First of all, detailing care involves a deeper and more thorough cleaning of the vehicle, paying special attention to small and hard-to-reach details. Compared to it, a standard car wash is more superficial.
High-quality professional detailing involves the use of special auto chemicals, professional tools, and accessories. All of the above mentioned help to get rid of the pollution of varying complexity.
Detailing washing takes place in three stages. At the first stage, the car body is treated with a non-contact shampoo, and at the end, a slightly acidic composition for discs is applied. The second phase begins with a manual hand wash with a special shampoo. The detailing car wash ends with the third phase, during which the vehicle is preserved with an antistatic composition.
A regular drive-through wash ends already in the first phase: you leave with an underdone car, with the drops of water flow, and when you go outside, dust and dirt begin to stick. There is not much sense in such a "car wash" except for a quick rinse and go.
All premium washing services must be carried out using professional tools: microfiber towels for drying the vehicle, waffle microfiber rags, artificial suede towels for cleaning openings, etc. In an regular car wash, all cars are washed with one rag, at best they are changed once a month. And in the detailing studio, a few of individual clothes are used for each car.
