Frequently Asked Questions

If you fail to see the answer you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly or ask the technician when scheduling a service or requesting a quote.

What is mobile car detailing?

Mobile car detailing is a service where a professional detailer comes to your location to clean and detail your vehicle. This can be at your home, office, or any other location convenient to you.

What are the benefits of detailing my vehicle?

Detailing your vehicle has numerous benefits, both in terms of its appearance and its overall value. Some of the key benefits of detailing your vehicle include the following:

  • Enhanced appearance: Regular detailing can help restore your vehicle’s original shine and luster, making it look newer and more attractive.
  • Protection from the elements: Treatments such as waxing and ceramic coating can help protect your vehicle’s exterior from damage caused by environmental factors such as UV rays, acid rain, and pollutants.
  • Increased resale value: A well-maintained vehicle with a clean interior and exterior will command a higher resale value than one that has been neglected.
  • Improved driving experience: A clean and well-maintained vehicle with a more comfortable and hygienic interior is more pleasant to drive.
  • Preventative maintenance: Regular detailing can help identify and prevent potential issues such as paint damage, rust, and interior wear and tear, saving you money on repairs in the long run.
What do I need to do prior to my detailing appointment?

Remove anything of value from inside your vehicle, such as important paperwork. For proper cleaning of cup holders and center console, please remove any change, phone chargers, and other clutter. Also, kindly allow a 30-minute window for us to arrive at your place to perform our services.

Which is better: wax or ceramic?

Ceramic coatings are much more durable than wax as they resist heat, UV rays, harsh detergents, bird droppings, hard water spotting, and much more. While wax could come off at the local car wash or with a high-pressure washer, Jade Ceramic Coatings will not. Jade Ceramic Coatings will last anywhere from two to five years and up, depending on the level of protection desired.

Will mobile car detailing damage my vehicle?

Mobile car detailing should not damage your vehicle if performed by a professional and experienced detailer. In fact, regular detailing can help protect your car’s exterior and interior from damage caused by UV rays, dirt, and grime.

How long will it take to wash or detail my car?

The time required to wash or detail your car depends on the condition of your vehicle. If your car’s interior is in good condition, a simple vacuum and basic cleaning will suffice and can be completed quickly. However, if your vehicle has significant wear and tear, a complete detail will take between 3 to 5 hours to bring it back to its original, like-new condition. Our team of professionals will assess your vehicle’s needs and provide you with an accurate estimate of the time required to complete the job.

What is the difference between washing and detailing? Do you offer both?

Washing and detailing are two different services that serve different purposes for your vehicle. Washing typically involves removing dirt and grime from the exterior of your vehicle using soap and water, while detailing involves a more thorough cleaning and restoration process that can enhance your vehicle’s appearance and protect its value. Although tunnel car washes may be a faster and more affordable option, they do not provide the same level of thorough cleaning and reconditioning as a complete auto detailing service.

In addition to our full detailing services, we also offer maintenance details that include a gentle wash, spray wax, tire and rim cleaning, tire shine, detailed vacuum, wipedown of the interior, and window cleaning. Our maintenance detailing services are a great option for clients who want to keep their vehicle looking its best between full detailing appointments.

Is your company certified in doing ceramic coatings?

Yes! Our installers are highly trained and certified in Puris Jade Ceramic Coatings and Jade Technology, ensuring that your vehicle receives the best possible treatment. Every car or truck that receives our Certified Jade Ceramic Coating installation comes with a Certificate of Installation, which you can keep for your records or use for the CarFax registration process.

How often should I have my car detailed?

How frequent you need to have your car detailed depends on several factors, such as your driving habits, the environment your car is exposed to, and your personal preferences. However, it is generally recommended to have your vehicle detailed at least twice a year—even more frequently if you live in an area with harsh weather conditions, or if you often transport pets or children.

What if I need to reschedule my appointment?

If you need to reschedule your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so we can accommodate your request. We understand that things come up and schedules can change, so we try to be as flexible as possible.
