Trademark Auto Detailers hauls its entire arsenal of VOC compliant, 100% biodegradable cleaning products to clients' homes and businesses. That way, vehicles don't have to waste gas or even change out of their pajamas as technicians hand wash them right in their own driveways, reviving paint and trim with a clay bar, high-speed wax, and chrome polish. For grimy interiors, treatments such as plastic and vinyl dressing and shampoos help cabins and backseats rebound from food spills or muddy shoes. Basic washes can be enhanced with extras from pet-hair removal to headlight restoration, and for an extensive overhaul, technicians can even clean the car's engine or apply a protective finish to interior fabric.
The 1958 Chevrolet Impala’s black paint had seen its fair share of dirt, but then again so had the detailers. They had traveled from driveway to driveway—a method perfected by Louis and Clarke—cleaning all types of vehicles along the way. This day was no different. They hauled their wax, cloths, vacuum, and cleaning products up the driveway and next to the vintage ride. A few hours later, after a hand wash, hand wax, and bug-and-tar-removal treatment, they wiped down the last window and stood back to admire the sparkling finish. They snapped a photo, took one last look, and headed back to Bridges Auto Detailing to await their next mobile assignment.
