Clean Cars Run Better – or so we’ve heard

As a car owner, you’re probably excited about and committed to taking care of your vehicle. Auto detailing is an essential aspect of that care.

While there is a common misconception that detailing is just a fancy word for cleaning, in most professional auto shops, this is truly not the case. Here at Irish Mike’s Collision, we believe car detailing is just as important of a step in any routine vehicle maintenance program as getting your oil changed or your tires aligned.

What to Expect

Detailing goes far beyond your typical car wash. It involves a thorough examination of your vehicle. When you bring your vehicle to our shop, trained experts will attentively clean, maintain, and restore aspects of your car by hand. It can be a tedious process that is best left to trained professionals, and at Irish Mike’s we’ve got the best!

There are essentially two components to a total car detailing: interior detailing and exterior detailing. We’ll go over those differences here, so you know what to expect when you stop by.

The basics of interior detailing involve thoroughly cleaning materials that make up the cabin of your vehicle. Leather seating, plastic or carbon fiber fixtures, and vinyl coverings are all attentively cleaned with tried and true techniques to restore your car to its original glory. In addition to removing debris and smoothing scratches, technicians will steam-clean and vacuum the interior cabin.

Exterior detailing involves cleaning the outside of a vehicle with a focus on preventative care. Once features such as tires and wheels, windows, and even the engine are thoroughly freed from visible debris with top-of-the-line degreasers and detergents, an extensive process of polishing and applying necessary wax will not only have your car looking great, but also prevent scratching and chipping in the long run.

Why Get Your Car Detailed?

Not only will getting your vehicle detailed give you a sense of pride as you leave our shop, but there are lots of long-term benefits that you may not be aware of.

For starters, detailing can drastically increase the lifespan of your car. It does so by removing damaging contamination from sensitive materials, such as chrome, vinyl, and leather. Because your car stays in better shape longer through detailing, it is more likely you’ll maintain a higher resale value if ever you decide to upgrade your ride.

Additionally, detailing can help maintain the condition of the paint on the exterior of your car. Over time, general wear and tear can start to add up and damage a paint job through built-up debris, dirt, and rust. Wax coating protects your vehicle from this damage and can prevent scratching. Even the engine of your vehicle will run more smoothly if your car is regularly detailed.
