Minor Details' experienced auto cleaners have started expanding their horizons. While the staff has specialized in detailing cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans for the Maryland-area car dealerships, they now have set their sights on individual car owners as well. They wash and dry rides by hand to a glimmering shine with basic services, and scour every inch of a vehicle's interior and exterior during full-service detailings that restore rides to factory condition before being hardened by the harsh realities of traffic law.
Seven cosmetic car-care packages attract soiled vehicles to Performance Window Tinting & Auto Detailing's shop, where dedicated motor maids vacuum, hand-wash, wax, and buff them until they're clean and idling happily. Thanks to the garage's tinting services, drivers can hide their autos' insides from prying eyes once technicians equip windows with SunTek or H?per Optik films. The vehicle doctors also perform a number of auto-body repairs, patching up hail damage, fixing windshield chips, and nursing black headlights received in fights with bullying mail trucks.
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.
The technicians at My Car Wash travel to driveways throughout the Baltimore area, armed with powerful soaps, soft cloths, clay bars, and other detailing tools. The mobile shop's four detailing packages, named for precious metals such as silver and unobtainium, treat cars of all sizes to hand washes, spray wax, leather conditioning, and other spruce-up services. In addition to detailing vehicles, My Car Wash also removes overspray, bumper stickers, pet hair, and odors, and fortifies carpet with antistain protectant.
