Clay & Polishing

Clay bar and polishing are two important steps in the auto detailing process that are used to remove contaminants and imperfections from the paint surface of a vehicle. The clay bar is a malleable substance that is used to remove embedded contaminants, such as tree sap and industrial fallout, from the paint surface. The process involves using a clay bar lubricant and gently rubbing the clay bar over the surface of the paint until all contaminants have been removed.

Polishing is the next step in the process and is used to remove fine scratches and swirl marks from the paint surface. This is done by using a finishing polishing machine polisher to gently buff the surface of the paint. The importance of this step is that it restores the paint to its original shine and luster, and is essential for maintaining the overall aesthetic of the vehicle.

When the clay bar and polishing process is complete, the vehicle will have a smooth, shiny, and flawless paint surface. Not only will it look great, but it will also be protected against future contaminants and damage. The process is important for maintaining the value and longevity of the vehicle and is also essential for achieving a showroom-quality finish. Overall, clay bar and polishing are essential steps in the auto detailing process that will leave your vehicle looking its best.

Interior Auto Detailing

Our interior auto detailing process includes hot water extraction and professional-grade upholstery cleaning products to bring your car’s interior back to life. For leather car seats, we use gentle leather cleaner and finish with a leather conditioner to maintain the beautiful look and feel of your car seats. 

Living near the beach is amazing and is part of what makes North County so special. However, bringing the beach inside your car is terrible for its interior surfaces. Beach sand will damage your seats and carpeted floors. And the residue from the ocean’s salt water will remain in the fibers of your upholstery making your car seats look old and worn.

Kids and dogs are wonderful and make life fulfilling and fun. However, they do not (typically) improve the look and appearance of your car’s interior. It is difficult, frustrating, and time consuming to remove dog hair after it has been embedded into the interior. And most kids, as wonderful they are, do not clean up the Cheerios they have ground into the car seats and floor. Spills, messes, and stains from kids and dogs can be hard to keep up with. 

We offer an exceptionally convenient solution and come to your vehicle to provide you with a refreshed, detailed vehicle. Always arriving with self-contained water, electricity, and all equipment & products needed to provide you with a beautifully detailed vehicle. We do all the hard work and save you time, energy, and stress.

Tesla Detailing Experts

Professionally detailing a Tesla requires a high level of care and experience because it is a special, unique and beautiful electric vehicle.

One of the challenges when detailing a Tesla is that the paint on these vehicles is known to be soft and more prone to scratches and swirl marks. This is due to the fact that Tesla uses a water-based paint system on their vehicles, which is more eco-friendly but also less durable than traditional solvent-based paint systems.

Additionally, the paint a Tesla cars less resistant to environmental contaminants such as tree sap, bird droppings, and industrial fallout. It’s important to take extra care when detailing and drying the car and to use specialized paint protection products to help protect the paint from scratches and other damage. Using a clay bar to remove embedded contaminants and polishing to remove fine scratches and swirl marks are also essential steps in maintaining the paint finish of a Tesla.

The interior of a Tesla is made of premium materials such as suede and advanced synthetic materials, which require specialized cleaning products and techniques to maintain their quality and appearance. Additionally, Tesla vehicles are equipped with advanced technology such as touch screen displays, which require specific cleaning and protection methods to maintain their functionality and longevity.

Water Quality Matters

Spotless water is a must for professional car detailing. Unfortunately, Carlsbad & North County have some of the hardest water in the entire country. Hard water is harmful to your car and should never be used for auto detailing the exterior or interior cabin. Without a doubt, deionized water is the best way to ensure a safe, gentle, and spotless wash.

Regular tap water, even filtered water contains harsh minerals such as calcium, magnesium, etc. which cause water spots. Water spots will permanently damage your car’s paint by etching into the clear coat causing an old & weathered look to your vehicle. The use of deionized water is just as important for interior detailing services as hard water will leave residue on car seats, upholstery, or any interior panels including the dashboard and center console. 

We only use deionized water for all car detailing services because it is the only way to guarantee a residue free and spot free car detail.

Odor Removal

Don’t mask odors from cigarette smoke, vomit, dogs, old food, body sweat, pets, and other odors with air fresheners.

As part of our odor elimination process, we use equipment to administer ozone shock treatment which attacks odors in your car and more importantly at their source. Ozone is a powerful oxidizer that breaks apart pollutants and odor molecules to eliminate them.

The equipment used creates O3 (ozone) in a special process that utilizes an electrical current. Ozone works by breaking down odors and other pollutants at their source. It will also follow the same path that the odors took into soft fabrics & surfaces and oxidize them on contact. 

Unlike deodorizers, it does not leave a smell or residue in your car. The treated area becomes free of odors. 

Odor Removal is an add on service which can be added to any auto detail. Book Online for an appointment.

Headlight Restoration

Most car headlights are covered with a polycarbonate, plastic lens. These headlight lenses discolor over time, becoming yellow and cloudy. This severely restricts the amount of light reaching the road. Clouding is caused by accumulated exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet light. This is unsightly and can pose a safety hazard.

We can restore foggy car headlights to a like-new condition at a fraction of the cost of replacements. Since replacing headlights can cost hundreds of dollars after installation, restoration is the least expensive way to correct the problem.

Car headlight restoration also known as headlamp restoration is the process of removing what is left of the old worn-out coating from the factory and installing a new protective coating. This process includes multiple steps. The first step is to remove the old, degraded factory auto headlight coating. To do this, it needs to be sanded off using many different grades of sandpaper. We start with 600 grit sandpaper and finally finish with 3,000 grit. Once that is completed, we polish the car headlights which provides shine and extreme clarity. Finally, we protect the headlight lens with multiple coats of ceramic sealant.
