The Essence of Our Detailing Service

Vehicle detailing is a systematic process essentially comprising 3 key stages:

● Clean
● Correction
● Protection

Clean

car-wash-detailingA multi-stage deep clean is carried out to the exterior and interior of the vehicle in order to thoroughly remove all visible and some invisible dirt and above surface bonded contaminants in a correct manner so as not to cause any damage in the process “the 7 P’s”. Whether it be a safe wash on a previously detailed vehicle; where every precaution is taken so as not to mark the surface and only remove the dirt not the wax, by delicately undertaking a routine including a pre-rinse, the use of snow foams, PH neutral body washes, citrus based degreasers, multi bucket method, correct wash mitts, acid free wheel cleaners, purified filtered water rinse to eliminate water spots, dried with ultra soft drying towels using a correct technique or a touchless warm air blow dry…OR a full clinical clean where all traces of previous protective waxes and sealants need to be stripped safely from the paint surface with diluted IPA, debugged, de-tarred and clay barred to remove above surface bonded contaminants in preparation for a paint correction detail. The interior is addressed appropriately – either lightly on a newer vehicle or heavy on older soiled interiors where we use professional wet-vac and dry steam machines, and specialist detailing brushes and tools to reach all areas.

Correction

correction_2Irrespective of which detailing package your vehicle requires, the paint correction stage is the most time consuming and labour intensive. In all cases we use sophisticated paint thickness measuring gauges to ascertain the safest level of correction possible. A selection of professional polishing machines are used, matched with pads of varying degrees of density, with corrective compounds (from light to strong) to achieve the desired results in the least aggressive way. A combination of hand polishing, machine polishing, and in some cases wet sanding is carried out using premium products in a methodical manner to remove stains, swirl marks, defects, spiderwebs, and surface scratches. In every case, all our paint corrective details involve a multitude of corrective processes, but to list in simple terms:

Stage 1 – removal of light swirl marks, stains and scratches from the paint surface
Stage 2 – removal of more visible swirl marks and defects followed by a Stage 1 polish
Stage 3 – removal of deeper scratches that are below surface defects (requires specialist wet sanding techniques) to reduce/remove scratches and defects followed by stages 2 then 1.

Protection

car-protectionEach surface is protected with a product specifically designed and perfectly matched for that area of the vehicle for optimum longevity, durability and appearance. Products are applied with meticulous attention to detail to achieve outstanding results. Interior hard surfaces, dashboard, door panels and plastics are treated to look factory fresh. Carpets and cloth are Scotch-guarded, leather is fed and conditioned, glass is treated with a hydrophobic coating, wheels sealed to reduce brake dust adhesion to name just a few of the processes. Paint is prepared with a pre wax cleaner polish to aid the bonding of one of the finest signature waxes.

We are a Swissvax authorised detailer, and are proud to include their range of products in all stages of our detailing packages, as we believe their products are exemplary. However, we also use selected products from other detailing industry leading brands. Upon request, detailing packages can be tailored to be brand specific. SEE OPTIONS.

Melbrook New Car Protection


The acquisition of a new vehicle for most people is likely to be the second biggest investment they will ever make, yet it is regularly the case that the protection of that investment which should be addressed from day 1 goes unnoticed. It is an unrealistic assumption that your vehicle rolled off the production line yesterday. A high percentage of new vehicles have already had their unprotected vulnerable exteriors exposed to the elements for a period of time, whether it be on the back of a car transporter, or stored at an outside holding point, collecting contaminants until the day you sign on the dotted line. Add to this the possibility of getting caught up in the PCP “Agreed future valuation” scenario…

This is why we feel it is of paramount importance to protect your investment from the outset in order to maximise it’s future residual value. Nothing pleases us more than having a vehicle from brand new in our customer portfolio, and watching our advice come to fruition.
