Behind Budget Auto Detail Center's shiny fleet of cars for hire and moving trucks, teams of dedicated detailers clean up customers' precious four-wheeled friends. Rather than outsourcing the cleaning chores to cyborgs, technicians remove offending stains and blemishes by hand, touching up paint chips or working in protective coats of wax to create a handsome sheen. Their power washes, steam cleanings, and interior scrub downs leave cars as grime- and grease-free as a germaphobe's favorite bar of soap.
Hot Shot Detail goes beyond traditional auto services with their complimentary pickup and delivery service for clients within 20 miles of Washington, taking grungy, scrub-starved vehicles off customers’ hands and returning them clean, waxed, and aesthetically renewed. Four-wheeled makeovers begin with a wash and dry including the removal of tar gnats and their passenger-door graffiti murals. Wheel wells, rims, and tires are freed of accumulated chocolate pudding, and trained squeegees return transparency to windows. A hand wax protects paint coats from the elements, and all chrome is thoroughly polished. Upholstery and leather receive a gentle cleansing, and dust and graham cracker crumbs are banished from the dash and consoles. After being vacuumed and lectured on hygiene, shiny horseless carriages receive their promised homecoming and subsequent joyride through a small parking lot.
The employees at Detail Plus are old hands when it comes to restoring cars to the glory of their showroom days. Staff members draw from years of experience as they gently detail the interiors, exteriors, and secret undercarriage glove compartments of roadsters. They hand wash outer frames and snatch any lingering environmental grime with Clay Magic products. Inside, conditioners care for vinyl and leather and steam removes contaminants from carpet. Protective extras include an undercoating that muffles noise and vibrations from the road as it shields wheel wells, gas tanks, and other fixtures from rust and corrosion.
