Maintenance Wash & Detailing

Our Maintenance Wash is for anyone wanting Detailed Cleaning and Protective Maintenance for ceramic coated or uncoated cars.

Detailed Cleaning

We do not offer ‘normal’ car wash as we focus on ‘detail’.

The Maintenance Wash is different to a normal wash as its more intensive in what is done, how long we spend and quality of materials i.e. ‘more detail’

For example the way we wash, we use wash mitts compared to sponges and we dry carefully by “blotting” vs rubbing dry to prevent swirls and scratches.

As with all our services its customizable, so if something is not included as standard we can quote and add it on.

Please Note: This service is different to a Full Valet. In a full valet we use steam and scrub the interior etc Read more about Full Valet

Protective Maintenance

This service is meant to maintain protection, for example you have a ceramic coating.

This Maintenance Wash includes Ceramic based protection for the entire car, i.e. paint, glass wheels, plastic etc. It is rated for 3 months UV protection, water and dirt repellancy.

Details:

Below is the detail steps we use to ensure thorough cleaning, prevention of swirls and scratches and also to boost protection.

  1. Pre Soak
    • A snow foam is applied to loosen dirt and grime so when we high pressure rinse the majority of dirt is easily and safely removed.
  2. Pre Treatment
    • Degreasers, bug removers and tar splatter (max 0.25 sqm)
  3. High Pressure Rinse
    • First rinse to remove as much loose dirt preventing it from grinding and scratching when its contact washed.
  4. Wheel Cleaning
    • All Purpose Cleaner is our general cleaner so as not to be aggressive in terms of chemical.
    • Wheel Acid and Iron Removing Wheel Cleaners available at no extra cost
  5. Shampoo Application
    • Our standard shampoo is a Ceramic infused shampoo with 3 months of UV protection and water repellancy for maintaining ceramic coated cars and protecting non coated cars.
    • This covers your glass, paint, plastics and wheels!
  6. Contact wash
    • Wool wash mitts and grit guards in our buckets is used to help prevent loose dirt from swirling and scratching paint.
    • A top down, overlapping pass method is used to ensure thoroughness.

      3. From R80 extra if you want both done
    • Before we handover, we will sterilize your keys with an disinfectant.

    • A Quick Detailer, aka QD, is used to put the finishing touch to your vehicle. 
    • Its a spray product that quickly and easily removes water spots, streaks, dust, fingerprints, smudges and any other light contamination for the perfect look.
