Paint Care Once the paint is clean professional detailers now proceed to take care of the paint. This step is an engaging one as it not only involves washing but also getting rid of surface imperfections. It consists of various procedures from washing the paintwork to claying the car and removing surface imperfections. 1. Cleaning the paintwork In this step the detailer foams the entire exterior space of the vehicle and leaves it to soak for a few minutes. Professionals use special products that are specially made for removing grime on paintwork. At this point the product may remove the wax but this is not a concern as the car will be waxed. After soaking the car for a while the detailer uses plush wash mitts and soft microfiber towels to clean the car and get rid of the surface contamination. They may also use a soft bristled detailing brush to clean parts such as the window rubbers plastic grills trim details and badges. They also clean the engine and its components and drain out old fluids. After cleaning they thoroughly rinse off the car with clean water.

2. Drying After washing the car is left to dry. Some professionals will use drying devices such as a blower to speed up the process.

If a dryer isn’t available some will utilize microfiber clothes to dry the exterior surface manually. 3. Claying the Car The third step is to clay the car’s exterior using a high-quality clay bar. Claying is an essential step as it helps to remove contaminants such as paint overspray road soils tree sap metal particles industrial fallout tar dirt and other substances that would not have been eliminated by soap and water. Claying is done on the paintwork windows headlights taillights and door jambs as well. After claying the detailer wipes down every clayed part to remove residue that may have been left behind. In most instances they make use of post-clay spirits to ensure a good clean. Some will even give the car another wash to make sure that the exterior parts of the vehicle are free of all forms of contaminants.

Surface Polishing The next step is to polish the body to get rid of the surface imperfections. In this step experts make use of auto polishing machines as they are faster than other manual devices.

6. Paint Protection The paintwork is clean and all surface imperfections have been addressed. The next step is to protect the paint. The amount of work done on the body by now must have stripped away the protective sealant or wax layer. Therefore the detailing expert has to apply a new coat of sealant. Some people go for the wax only while others use the polymer sealant alone. Professionals recommend that you use layers of both wax and a paint sealant to offer maximum protection. However when applying the sealant one has to leave it for several hours before applying another layer or waxing it. Paint care is the most engaging step in the detailing process.
