What is Car Detailing?

Wiping Down Car Dash with Cleaning Cloth


When it comes to getting your Voorhees vehicle clean, you might be asking “What is car detailing?” or “How is car detailing different from a car wash?” While a car wash is more of a surface level cleaning, car detailing is more thorough and focuses on restoring both the inside and the outside of your vehicle. Car detailing also focuses on removing blemishes and scratches. Car detailing can be done all around town or by the Lexus of Cherry Hill service team, conveniently located in Mt. Laurel near Moorestown. Contact service today with any questions.

Items Used For Car Detailing

When you detail your car, this is what you’ll need:

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Washing mitts
  • Microfiber cloths
  • A variety of small brushes (such as a paintbrush)
  • Canned air
  • Upholstery cleaner
  • Carpet stain cleaner
  • Car-safe cleaner
  • Window cleaner
  • Surface protector for vinyl and leather surfaces

Exterior Car Detailing Steps

Detailing the exterior of your car necessitates the following procedures:

  • Rigorous exterior wash: Use water, a car-safe cleaning solution, and microfiber cloths. Avoid household detergents and frequently swap out cleaning cloths. Use clean towels to dry the vehicle.
  • Clean the wheels: With the solution you used to wash the rest of your car, clean your vehicle’s wheels. Use a small brush to clean out the grooves.
  • Wax the exterior: After the exterior is clean, you have the choice to wax your car. Once it’s finished, wipe off excess wax with a small brush.

Interior Car Detailing Steps

When you detail the interior, this is what you should take care of:

  • Carpeting: First, vacuum your carpeting. If you’ve got stains on the carpeting, use a stain remover and brush to remove them.
  • Door Interior: With a soap and water solution, clean the non-carpeted part of your doors and dry them with a cloth. After that, open your car doors to clean the metal and plastic parts.
  • Windows: Wash the inside of your car mirrors with a window-cleaning solution and dry it completely to avoid streaks.
  • Upholstery: After you vacuum the seats, remove any stains with a stain remover and brush. After you finish cleaning your seats, let them dry with your car doors open.
  • Steering Wheel Column: Take out dust and stains with a cleaning solution, dry, and apply a surface protectant.
  • Dashboard and Center Console: With small tools, clean cracks and tight crevices, then dry completely with a cloth.
