Expert auto polishers at Premier Auto Detailing restore vehicles to their new-car shine with a menu of auto-detailing and hand-wash services. Each detailing service, much like getting a makeover next to Deepak Chopra, improves both interiors and exteriors, as the detail-orientated staff meticulously shampoo carpets, clean windows and rims, remove any oxidation, and protect paint from the sun with waxes.
A gleaming Rolls-Royce parked front and center is not an uncommon occurrence at Keatley Detail, long the most trusted South of Market operation for an automotive deep clean. Interiors and exteriors alike emerge looking factory-fresh after one of their detailing treatments. Unlike the typical brushless car wash, Keatley offers a membership program of a few details per month, to keep that paint job shiny and maximize the resale value, should you ever look to sell your ride. Even waiting for your car to be cleaned is an upscale experience, with a waiting room that offers free WiFi, coffee and water. For fine-toothed detailing or to buff away the latest scratch and scrape that inevitably comes from parking on the street, Keatley Detail is the place to go.
The detailers at Auto Spa execute four treatments designed to restore cars, trucks, and SUVs to their glory days of flaunting shiny, flawless coats on the showroom floor. The team breaks out the sponges and soft cloths to hand wash exteriors—including wheels and tires—and adds meticulous touches such as clay-bar treatments and sealants to protect paint jobs and seal in gloss. They also tackle interior grime, refreshing carpets and mats with vacuuming and shampooing, conditioning leather and vinyl, and excavating fossilized french fries under seats.
The vehicle virtuosos at Vanegas & Sons rejuvenate roadsters during a 2.5-hour express detailing service. Each treatment begins with a gentle and thorough hand washing of external surfaces including doorjambs, wheel wells, wheels proper, and rubbery rollers. Techs then manually treat minor scrapes, scratches, and regrettable DeLorean tattoos then rub car coats with a clay bar, freeing automobiles of surface contaminants to leave the car with a smooth and clean shine. Car caretakers dry cars with chamois microfiber towels and blasts of compressed air, subsequently coating them in premium carnauba wax, which safeguards vehicle surfaces and sleekifies its finish. Inside, vacuums suction up dust, dirt, and nests of sentient french fries, carpets welcome spot-cleaning, and floor mats bathe in deep steam cleaning.
Before the water from Tower Car Wash's car wash sessions can be released into the sewer system, onsite filters pull out the oil, chemicals, and dirty solids in order to protect the environment. This is just one way in which the staff at Tower Car Wash, which has been serving the Bay Area since 1996, protects the world around them. To protect automotive paint jobs, though, they perform every car wash by hand and discourage students from winning bumper stickers at school. The technicians also draw on a massive armory of air fresheners, tire dressing, carpet shampoo, and waxes to protect rides and leave them gleaming. While customers wait for their cars to emerge from wash or detail sessions, they sip hot coffee and slice into crepes and sandwiches at the adjoining cafe.
ADS Mobile's 20 years in the business have taught the company, now at its new location on Industrial Street, that more is more. Every car that the company's mobile team of techs services receives a wash, a tire dressing, and a rim, glass, and well cleaning?no matter what service the auto came in for. Those services cover a broad range of aesthetic improvements including paint-job touchups to cover minor dings and scrapes and window tinting to help retired coal miners to adjust to life in full sun. Of course, an extensive repertoire of wash and detailing packages dominates the company's menu of services, including more exotic procedures such as the wet-sand treatment, which restores badly damaged paint to a fresh-from-the-showroom gleam.
By WaterLess Touch’s estimate, the average car wash wastes up to 120 gallons of water. In an effort to remedy this unfortunate statistic, the company uses a fully biodegradable solution that only requires one cup of water per wash. They also look out for the environment with 100% recyclable bottles and sprayers that contain their nontoxic, phosphate-free cleanser, which is made with all organic materials capable of lifting even heavy dirt from vehicle exteriors. The staff of attentive detailers then uses microfiber towels to wipe off grime and leave cars polished and protected from UV rays in less than 30 minutes.
WaterLess Touch’s Clean Teams can arrive at your home or workplace ready to
administer any number of auto-detailing services, including exterior hand cleanings, full interior vacuuming, and preserving car finishes with organic sprays. Additional services include an interior shampoo, a hand carnauba wax, and a motorcycle wash that can also be applied to two unicycles in love.
For more than 30 years, Paul Dickerson has done his part to beautify the Bay Area's hilly streets. A fully insured car detailer, he cleans, polishes, and restores coaches out of an auto shop stocked with deluxe tools. An eco-friendly LaserWash cleanses cars without any contact from disgusting human fingers. Steam machines scour engines, restoring a like-new shine to pistons. Wet sand smoothes and polishes paint, and clay bars bounce dirt and grime hanging out in the tiny pores of car paint. These tools fit neatly into the back of Dickerson's cargo van, which he uses for mobile details. When he's not caring for cars, Paul devotes himself to giving back to the community through Fuel for Change, a program that transforms auto and gas profits into resources for humanitarian projects.
Since 1992 Auto Europa has been helping European vehicles feel a little less homesick. The ASE-certified technicians welcome imports such as Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes, and Land Rovers with specialized training in European vehicles and online diagnostic computers that keep them updated on everything from repair information to wire schematics. Their services run the gamut from oil changes and tune-ups to small- and large-scale repairs for brakes, engines, and transmissions. Auto Europa also staffs master technicians that specialize in vintage restoration and auto-body and paint services. These technicians work deftly to maintain the dignity and pristine glory of classic cars so they look as sleek as they did when their tires first hit US soil.
Fittingly for auto detailers, the team at Mr. Ecowash pays attention to even the smallest detail. Before beginning any soft-cloth wash, they first rinse the car to wash away the tiny debris of surface grit?a step that, if skipped, would leave scratches in the clear coat. Following eco-friendly practices that conserve up to 10 gallons of water with each wash, the technicians also carry out interior and exterior detailing services that include engine cleaning and tar removal. Rather than sitting idle as they wait for their vehicles, patrons can either drop them off or commission Mr. Ecowash?s mobile services to come to their home, office, or timeshare teetering over a cliff.
Carlos Quijada is living proof that the American dream is alive and well. Determined to give his family a better life, he arrived in the country alone and spent his first year moving from job to job, determined to find something that would give him the means to bring his loved ones over. When fate led him to his first detailing job, he knew he had finally found a line of work that could make his hopes a reality. Soon, he and his family were building their own thriving business from soft towels, buffers, and car wax, working all day, everyday to ensure its success.
The hard work paid off. Today, First Class Auto Detailing boasts two locations. Carlos and his team bring foreign and domestic cars, SUVs, and motorcycles to a spotless sheen through a slate of thorough detailing packages. Technicians coax out vehicles' showroom shines with regimens of polish and hand waxes, steam clean engines, and reach for stain-defying shampoos to treat carpets and the hair of dashboard hula dancers. In addition to car-cleaning packages, the team also offers window tinting and mobile sound-system services, and will gladly provide free estimates for all work.
Selecta Auto Body's first priority is to take care of your car. It's second priority: take care of the environment. This auto body shop's been reanimating cars with collision repairs and detailing since 1971, but it's evolved with the times, acquiring myriad eco-friendly amenities that have drastically reduced its carbon footprint and led to its designation as a certified B Corporation.
Of course this emphasis on eco-friendliness has no negative effect on the auto services provided. In fact, it actually helps, since all of the equipment is new and technologically advanced. For instance, the shop's brand new paint booth is equipped with energy efficient features, such as a filter that removes 97% of particulates, to protect the environment and ensure a more precise paint job. Another amenity in the repair shop is the FESTOOL system, an advanced high-tech dust extraction system that reduces the bi-products of sanding. Selecta also offers auto detailing, performed only with products that have low to no volatile organic compounds, and the shop even features live plants to help boost the oxygen levels in the work place and help cars breathe a little easier.
For Orlando, detailing cars isn’t just a job—it’s a passion. For more than seven years, the skilled technician has been sprucing up vehicles, buffing the exteriors by hand and eliminating dirt and debris from interiors. He draws from his training and experience as an Enterprise rental-car preparer to primp automobiles, reconditioning seats, cleaning windows, and coaxing extreme hitchhikers out from under the chassis.
The experienced detailers at Eco-Fresh bring their meticulous car-scrubbing prowess straight to their customers. They can detail vehicles at practically any location, from their client’s driveway to the parking lot of their place of business, vacuuming and steam-cleaning interiors and hand washing exteriors for a natural shine.
Car problems are unavoidable yet unexpected, so Brothers Auto Center's crew try to alleviate a stressful situation with expedient, reliable service. Collision repairs are a specialty, and the team has been known to return crumpled-up hoods and scratched fenders to like-new condition. They can replace cracked windows and windshields, and smooth out exteriors with paintless dent-removal.
Brothers Auto Center also performs maintenance services, including oil changes and suspension and wheel alignment. Auto detailing keeps interiors and exteriors in pristine condition, and headlight restoration increases drivers' ability to see the road at night or if they accidentally drive into a black-and-white movie.
