After five years of perfecting cars for area dealerships, Car Pretty’s purification professionals now share their services with the public, restoring cars’ interior tidiness and exterior luster with meticulous detailing services. Technicians begin each 20-minute wash by lathering exteriors with wax-infused soap that coaxes out shine and protection. A gentle towel dry prevents water droplets from leaving spots, and a tire shine leaves vehicles with the glistening effect brighter than the last time they drove through a jewelry-store display case. The complete 20-minute wash also includes an interior vacuuming, as well as a cleaning of the dash, doors, and windows.
Car Pretty’s complete three-hour detail treatment expands the wash’s basic cleanse with a clay-bar treatment that extracts tar, busts grease, and reveals which dents were filled in with melted jawbreakers. The team attends to intricacies that include door jambs, wheel wells, and moldings and applies a premium glaze to ensure a glossy finish. The detail concludes with a deep cleaning of all interior surfaces, as well as a complete engine cleansing that eliminates evidence of roasting whole turkeys on the manifold.
Bottles of Meguiar's, Rain-X, Black Magic, and Nu Finish line the work bays at Car Pretty, where experienced detailers revamp rides with detailing and hand-wash services. Despite their impressive product arsenal, their supplies come second to their technique; using clay bars, detailers meticulously remove tiny scratches and imperfections from paint, taking care to evict all bird stains and hood-ornament birds' nests. They also take advantage of specially designed Tornador equipment that dislodges embedded dirt from all interior surfaces. While the detailers unleash their cleansing fury on sullied surfaces, guests can lounge in the shop's waiting room.
