Step by Step Car Detailing Guides
STEP 1 – Snow Foam and Pre-Wash
This is the first process in either preparing a vehicle for detailing or simply maintaining a detailed vehicle. The initial pre-wash helps to loosen and safely remove dirt and grime from the surface of the paintwork. It does this without making contact with the paintwork minimising the risk of inflicting swirls marks during the washing process.
STEP 2 – Washing The Vehicle
Washing the vehicle is the next step. This is an important one as this is where the swirl marks can be easily inflicted. A good quality wash mitt, shampoo, grit guard and a microfibre drying towel will reduce the risk of inflicting swirls.
STEP 3 – Cleaning The Wheels
Having clean wheels is very important to the overall looks of the vehicle. You must make sure you clean them safely and thoroughly to prevent any damage.
STEP 4 – Decontamination
Decontaminating the paintwork is removing what washing will not, tar spots, fallout, overspray and much more.
