Q Are the brushes scratching my car?
NO. Brushes and curtains are lubricated with soap and water to gently remove dirt from your vehicle.
Q Are you cleaning and vacuuming the inside of my car??
YES and NO. Yes with our detailing packages, but not as part our car wash. The car wash exterior only.
Q My wheels are black, can you clean them?
YES. We can apply a rim treatment to remove brake dust and other dirt. Several treatments may be required if the brake dust has baked on for months, to have the best possible clean rims.
Q Are you removing bugs from my car??
YES. We apply a solution to the front of your vehicle and windshield before entering the car wash, and it is FREE.
Q Is the underbody wash included?
YES. Underbody spray is free and included with every wash.
Q Will you remove tar from my rocker panel?
YES. Ask our attendant at the exit to hand remove the tar from your rocker panel.
Q. Isn't rain a natural, cost-effective car wash?
NO, NO. Rain and snow contain acids that eat away at the paint and finish of vehicles. After acid rain falls on a vehicle, the water evaporates and the acid remains. Concentrated by sun light, this acid can become so strong that it will eat through the finish, ruining the vehicle's paint and appearance. There are no soaps, conditioners, brushes or waxes in rainwater to clean and protect your vehicle.

Q. Why automotive detailing as opposed to just washing my car?
A. Detailing does more than merely clean your car. It preserves or, as the case may be, restores its original beauty through thorough, professional processes involving bug, tar, sap, or lime removal, tire and rim treatment, interior leather and vinyl conditioning, carpet, seat, consol and dash steam cleaning, claying, compounding, polishing, waxing and applied protestants that keep your car's paint job looking "just-off-the-production-line" fresh. Moreover, regular detailing extends the life of your car and actually adds to its value. Car detailing is extremely effective in cases where cars sit outside, subject to the cruelties of the environment, such as sand, sleet, snow, pollen, bird droppings and more - all entities that can erode a vehicles' good looks by wearing through its protective clear coat and eventually consuming the layers of paint. Automotive detailing is car care taken to the max-and you don't have to be wealthy or drive the most expensive car to take advantage of these services. Auto detailing is for anyone who wants to get the most out of their vehicle, and keep it looking great for its expected lifetime and beyond.
Q. How often should I detail the exterior of my car?
A. We recommend that your vehicle be detailed at least three times per year, due to the harsh Canadian outdoor elements.
Q. How often should I clean and condition my interior?
A. To keep your interior in showroom condition, we recommend steam cleaning and conditioning a minimum of 2 to 5 times per year, due to sunlight, outdoor elements and the general abuse it suffers from getting in and out of the car every day.
Q. What is paint contamination?
A. After your car is washed and dried, run the palm and fingertips of your clean hand across the top surfaces. Don't be surprised if what you feel is rough and bumpy. The roughness you feel is the presence of harmful environmental bonded contaminants such as over-spray, fallout, brake dust, tree sap mist and more that have bonded to your finish. They will gradually mask and blur the reflection. To remove these bonded contaminants and bring back that "smooth-as-glass" finish, a process commonly referred to as "claying" must be done to your vehicle before compounding, polishing and waxing your car.
Q. What is compounding?
A.Compounding involves abrading away the area surrounding the scratch or blemish until the defect is no longer visible. Compounding may leave the surface dull. This dullness or compounding haze is removed by polishing.
Q What is polishing?. A. Polishing removes most swirl marks and compounding haze and restores surface gloss. It creates a mirror-like highly reflective finish ready for waxing.
Q. Carnauba Car Wax or Paint Sealants?
A. Carnauba wax is the preferred car wax of collectors and concours enthusiasts because It creates a rich, warm glow. It doesn't appear to sit on the paint. It transforms the paint into a deep, liquid pool that shimmers under changing light conditions. The wax is produced by the Brazilian tree of life, a palm tree, in order to coat its leaves. The wax provides protection from the sweltering sun and it sheds water so it falls onto the ground and is absorbed by the trees ' roots. For this reason, carnauba wax is breathable. Carnauba wax is graded. The best wax is refined into an ultra-pure white wax to ensure that the wax produces the clearest, most reflective gloss.
Paint sealants last longer and there is nothing natural about them. This is surface science at its best. A paint sealant is made of polymers, which are composed of tens of thousands of synthetic particles that are linked together. They are glossy and slick and last 2 to 4 month.
Q. Do you clean leather?
A. Yes we do. We clean and condition all types of leather, and use only the finest products which, in most cases, will result in a soft, new look for your leather interior and prevent the leather from cracking.
Q. Is there a "life time protection?"
A.We constantly hear that the new finishes do not require protection. Paint finishes are more "high tech" today, but the truth is that the "clear coat" which is supposed to protect the color is nothing more than paint without pigment. Once salt, sun or acid rain penetrates the clear coat, the paint deteriorates very rapidly.
