Cars may have been made for speed, but caring for them properly takes time. Such is the credo underlining Gemstone Auto Detail's exhaustive cleaning packages, which incorporate everything from human hands to clay bars and air guns in order to keep cars as clean as the day they crawled out of Henry Ford's soup. Detailers wash away dirt with foam guns, pH-balanced water, and shampoos; however, cleaning is only the beginning. Once vehicles have been stripped of grime and filth, the staff carefully wipes them down with liquid waxes and polish. Still, a shiny car is susceptible to damage, which is why they take it a step further and condition leather seats, lather the paint in sealant, and fabric-guard the carpets, building an armor around the vehicle that maintains its like-new shine and protects it from hazards such as weather, grease, and spillage.
A part of the auto-upkeep industry for 25 years, Tony's Recon draws on an experienced team of technicians to perform spotless makeovers for all manner of land, sea, and sky transport.

Realizing that dirt and grime often penetrate below vehicular surfaces, the exacting staff delve deep into carpet fibers during interior details that enlist shampoos to reinvigorate mats and seats.
