A car’s untarnished interior can go a long way in impressing out-of-town colleagues, visiting in-laws, and affluent clowns in the market for a roomier cruiser. Astound the right crowd with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get a full auto detailing at Xtreme Auto Detail in Dulles (formerly in Sterling) (up to a $215 value).
Xtreme’s expert grime fighters restore slovenly autos to their youthful radiance with meticulous vehicular makeovers. During the three-hour detailing, Xtreme’s crack staff slings suds across the auto’s expanse for a thorough hand wash before delivering a machine buff and polish that jettisons exteriors of unsightly bugs, swirl marks, and light scratches incurred from hitchhiking mountain goats. After a chamois dry, tires, rims, and wheel wells receive a careful cleansing, and a hand-applied wax bestows car shells with an apple-cheeked sheen that aims to catch the eye of arrogant, eye-rolling billboards.
A pit crew of roadster refiners scoop out the interior and trunk with a swift vacuum, scrubbing the doorjambs before washing windows, mirrors, and ashtrays. Upholstery, carpets, and floor mats surrender subterranean muck to a steam cleaning and shampoo, and seats made from vinyl and leather are cleansed with a detailed dressing or conditioning. Lastly, Xtreme will cap off the detailing beneath the hood, purging engines of performance-detracting grime and misplaced groceries.
Xtreme Auto Details
One could argue whether or not people actually have a favorite color, but the detail technicians at Xtreme Auto Details would argue they do. Since their shop opened in 1999, they've developed a specialty in detailing black and red vehicles. They revivify the colors during tiered detail packages that employ a repertoire of techniques, including hand washes and over-spray- and odor-removal treatments. Though the staff's fondness for black and red may influence their decision to have a Chicago Bulls–themed wedding, it doesn't prohibit them from welcoming other shades of vehicles into their shop, which offers free WiFi for waiting customers.
