“How long does it take to do a Full Valet or Interior Deep Clean?”

I specify approximately 4 hours for a standard sized sedan for example a Toyota Corolla.

The interior we spend approximately 3 hours on and an hour for miscellaneous detail and washing. 2 staff works on a car so the man hours put in doubles this.

If we do a premium level valet, the time extends by and hour so that the leather conditioner and protectant that’s applied has time to “cure”.

Extra dirty vehicles for example pet hair, excess sand or mud may take longer and hence why a surcharge may apply.

It must be noted that depending on when you book, for example if you book today for tomorrow or on the day, that is a late booking, we may already have other bookings that we need to do first and or work around with.

It is then better to book ahead so you can specify your time.

Also, the time you bring the vehicle in, we need to consider staff lunch time

“What is the difference between a Mini Valet, Full Valet & Deep Clean?”

Whether you call it a Full Valet or Deep Clean both means the same thing; the thorough and intensive cleaning of a vehicles complete interior. Seats, floor, roof, doors dash, you name it everything in the interior!

A mini valet in comparison to a full valet or deep clean, can be done by a normal car wash, where only a vacuum is used to clean the interior while other surfaces may be wiped but not scrubbed. I do not offer a mini valet, normal car wash or engine or chassis cleaning.

We use different cleaning methods in our full valet that goes beyond what a car wash would offer:

  • Pre treatment – before we get into scrubbing we pre treat the stains and dirt to allow it to soften and loosen
  • Interior shampoo of fabrics and carpets, where we scrub a foam or spray cleaner to release dirt
  • Hot vapour steam cleaning recommend for; oily / greasy type dirt, body fluids, odours and smells or disinfection
  • Wet Extraction – This is where we rinse and extract / remove the released dirt so the cleaned surface can dry without residue
  • Disinfect – we use a vehicle specific disinfectant to ensure your car it is safe.

Cleaning your car is the first thing to do when you want to remove a bad odour or smell or disinfect it. We offer additional services to improve odour elimination further such as Ozone

“How Do You Sanitize / Disinfect A Car?”

My current protocol in light of COVID-19 is to use a vehicle specific disinfectant over all touch surfaces in any of our services and therefore your vehicle should be at a disinfected state when you collect it.

If someone has been ill, whatever the infection i.e. from Corona, TB, HIV or even Cold or Flu I recommend going a step or two further by using:

The addition of any of these extra services ensures the maximum effort has been applied leaving no doubt and to give you peace of mind.

“Do you clean baby seats / prams?”

Short answer. No.

Baby seats and prams actually have removable covers that can be machine washed. There is usually a label somewhere on there like a clothing label for advice on machine washing and drying.
