- Full vacuum of the interior, floor mats and cargo area
- Clean front and rear dash, instrument panel, steering wheel and door panels
- Clean seats, arm rests, glove box and center console
Our Deep Detailing package starts with all of the same steps of our Basic Detailing then builds on top of that work with several focused steps which will accentuate the style and beauty of your vehicle. As the Deep Detailing will requires significantly more time to complete, we will discuss the goals you have for your vehicle ahead of time and agree to what is necessary to bring the best out in your vehicle in the timeframe that fits your schedule. The work for the deep detailing package starts with the same cost as the Basic Detailing then adds $100 per hour for the time it it will take for us to complete various steps which are listed below. The time to complete the process will depend on the size and condition of the vehicle and which of the processes we feel are necessary to complete the work to your satisfaction.

Whatever your needs, we will estimate a time to complete your work prior to booking so you will know the complete costs ahead of time. If we exceed our time estimate for some reason we will NOT adjust the costs from our original estimate.
Q: What exactly do you mean by 'Environmentally Focused'?
Although we do bring a full power washing capability with us to your site we will often choose not to use it and instead make use of our ‘rinseless wash’ process. Aside from not requiring us to setup our generator, this process uses *much* less water than power washing and also results in very little run-off with any water on the ground cleaned up through simple evaporation.
Environmentally Friendly Products
We spend a significant amount of time testing products from the industry searching for those that meet our performance requirements but which also have environmentally sensitive features and ingredients. For instance our tire dressing is water based and contains no silicone or oil based ingredients. Our choice of bug and tar remover is a powerful citrus based cleaner with very low VOC (volatile organic compound) content. The clay bar we use is made from naturally occurring mud (believe it or not).
It’s important to us to ensure we minimize our environmental footprint while delivering superior results to you as a customer.
