The Restoring and rejuvenation
of your vehicle's paintwork.
Snow Foam Pre-Wash
Before we physically touch your vehicle we will pre-wash with Snow Foam to remove as much of the dirt and contaminants from your vehicle.
The Snow Foam we use is a new generation premium quality, foaming water-based pre wash treatment, designed to soak and saturate soiled vehicle paintwork prior to the application of vehicle shampoo and paint food. The foam is gentle specifically formulated for use with all pressure washer foam lances. Applied at a typical PIR (Panel Impact Ratio) of 4%, auto-foam will panel dwell for typically 5 minutes. Snow Foam is formulated specifically to offer maximum wetting, it rinses easily too.
Your vehicle will then be rinsed from the top to the bottom in a methodical process that prevents those missed areas.
Tyres and Alloy Wheels:
We use a non-acid, non-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner, and in over 90% of cases no agitation is required. Where additional treatment is required we will use a soft brush treatment.
Our pH neutral formulation reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particles rendering it water soluble, the rapid removal of this microscopically rusted surface reduces the embedded particle size and releases it from the surface. Unlike acid based alloy wheel cleaners, this method is harmless to the wheel’s finish. The reaction is seen by a rapid colour change from clear to deep red. After a simple hose, rinse down or jet-wash it leaves the wheel spotless. In severe cases the included wheel brush can be used to assist the process.
As vehicles brake, the dust generated from pads, discs and drums are at high temperatures, producing a hot cloud of thousands of hot metallic particles, these bombard the wheels finish and effectively embed themselves on to the wheel.
Once lodged these particles are extremely difficult to remove. Acid based alloy wheel cleaners attack these metal particles effectively, reducing its size - allowing the particles and dirt clinging to it to escape. Caustic alloy cleaners are less effective than acid ones on brake dust, but can attack organic coatings such as lacquers and paints on short exposure, they attack any organic matter accumulated around the embedded particles and produce a seemingly clean surface, however with continued use they will dull and diminish the coating, leaving a wheel surface that needs refinishing.
In most cases steel and alloy wheels are either lacquered or painted. These coatings protect the metallic surface from corrosion and provide the attractive finishes to automotive road wheels.
Cleaning door shuts
One of the areas often missed overlooked when cleaning a car are the door shuts and are included in the Full Valet.
Once we have snow foamed the bodywork and removed any loose items, leaves or litter we will clean all the shuts with a wash mitt and shampoo solution using the two bucket system. We may use a de-greasing solution and soft bristle brush, should it be required, to remove any stubborn dirt.
The shuts will be closed after cleaning and rinsing and complete a final rinse to the bodywork. When the final bodywork rinse has been completed we will re-open the shuts and dry them with a micro fibre towel.
If we regularly maintain your vehicle the shuts may only require a simple maintenance programme.
Tar, Tree Sap and adhesives removal
We will use a fast-acting solvent based formula used after washing and before potential claying / polishing to remove any organic contaminants. It will be used on a dry vehicle,working on a single panel, allowing 30-60 seconds for the formula to work. Finally we will wipe with a micro fibre cloth and then rinse with water.
Clay bar Application
After the car has been snow foamed and rinsed we will clay bar using a suitable lubricant to both the paintwork surface and clay bar to aid application, removing imperfections in the paintwork, improving the surface’s finish and feel. This process is done prior to a full machine polish.
2 stage Machine Polish
Oxidization will cause your bodywork to fade and it may also be contaminated with a layer of bonded dirt and grime. This is removed during the previous clay bar process. Light hitting scratches the light will refract in different directions creating a dull looking finish.
Your cars paintwork is comprised of multiple layers from bare metal panel coated with a primer, the base coat colour, thickness varies with manufacturer, a clear coat lacquer with UV protection.
Professional machine polishing will significantly reduce or eliminate defects such as:
Water spot marks
Random deep scratches
Stone chips Oxidisation
We will then apply a revolutionary mist and wipe product that works like a spray detailer while enhancing wax protection. Hydrophobic Polymer Technology delivers an incredibly high surface tension which adds protection and causes water to bead relentlessly - wash after wash!
