Recently purchased by Auto Elegance Inc., Auto Image Detail Shop employs skilled techs to carefully cleanse vehicle interiors and exteriors with their hands, cloths, vacuums, and steam cleaners. The Gold detailing package starts off with an exoskeletal hand wash followed by a chamois hand dry, bug and tar removal, clay-bar treatment, and coat of carnauba hand wax. Staffers pamper vehicles’ circular feet by meticulously sluicing and scrubbing tires and wheel wells. After vacuums scour interiors for dirt and dust, steam cleaners speedily soak and suck stains from carpets, mats, and fabric seats. Technicians also clean and wipe down every nook and cranny, ranging from cup holders to vents and mirrors. The three- to four-hour process wraps up with the installation of a fresh scent, which can combat the nose-singeing aroma of expired scratch-and-sniff seat belts before spotless vehicles are returned to owners.
