The technicians at Columbia Detailing keep all types of vehicles looking shiny and neat for months after each cleaning, shampooing interiors and buffing exteriors with 100% biodegradable products. Crews travel to clients' driveways or workplaces to lift stains from upholstery or shield paint jobs with polymer sealer—a product with better bonding qualities and a higher melting point than the traditional carnauba wax or candy-coated shell. They also tackle more specific auto-detailing needs, such as paintless dent removal, carpet dyeing, and headlight restoration. Columbia Detailing prides itself on its ability to spot-clean, wax, and restore nearly any type of craft, from boats and RVs to motorcycles.
Bryant Mobile Detailing's scrupulous technicians sanitize vehicles at the customer's location with hand mitts, Cyclo polisher, and Meguiar's wax. During the express detail, cars lounge comfortably in their parking spot, driveway, or massage chair as techs prep them with a pressure wash and then perform a hand washing with a gentle wash mitt and mild detergent. After a chamois dry, detailers direct compressed air into any crevices to clear away debris, then coat the exoskeleton with Cyclo polisher and Meguiar's wax, which guards the finish for up to 12 weeks. Next, they dress the tires and wheel wells with a high-silicone rubber and plastic dressing, and blast bits of dust from interior hiding spots with a compressed air gun before sending the car galloping happily down the road.
Columbia Mall Car Wash restores vehicles to pristine condition with its executive car-wash package, a multifaceted cleanse that takes a mere 20 minutes. Frisky autos can wag their tails with glee as the wash’s suds-slingers soak and hand-dry their exteriors and vacuum their carpets, floors, and seats. A clear-coat finish helps protect paint jobs from weathering, and a body-luster foam wax guards the car's shell against acid rain and even more acidic sunshine. Sealer wax helps lock in each car’s freshness and ocular appeal. Undercarriages receive a swabbing of their own to remove salt, plus an application of rust inhibitor to ward off corrosion.
At Sound Performance, technicians upgrade cars with name-brand mobile electronics and alarm systems. They retool automotive acoustics with stereos, subwoofers, and speakers from brands such as Kenwood and Pioneer, and integrate smartphone ports into stereos so that motorists can tap into their music library while they drive. To protect the high-tech gadgets from the heat or the jealous eyes of strangers, technicians also install scratch-resistant LLumar window tints, which are cut with precision using a special computer system. Sound Performance prepares drivers for winter with remote starters, which enable drivers to warm up the car at the touch of a button without leaving the comfort of their home or curbside tanning bed.
