Auto Detailing Laguna Beach
Common Misconceptions About Detailing
All it takes is a few weeks of driving city roads to lose that showroom shine; a couple of carpools with a sweaty Little League team to lose that new car smell; and an unfortunate mishap with a ketchup packet to soil that pristine newness; but whether your vehicle is new or years old, Platinum Plus Mobile Detailing can reacquaint you with luxury driving!
Only about 10% of car and truck owners have their vehicles detailed on a regular basis, but if you are thinking about having your vehicle detailed for the first time, you will quickly get addicted to driving and riding in an exquisitely clean, safe, “like-new” vehicle all the time.
Automotive detailing and automotive paint correction are the most cost-effective ways to protect your long-term automotive investment, and to be guaranteed a higher trade-in value when you get ready to sell!
MY VEHICLE IS NEW. I DON’T NEED A DETAIL!
Contrary to popular belief, the paint on new cars is not completely flawless. Your new vehicle has been manhandled by delivery personnel, service techs, salespeople, and numerous potential buyers!
In the transportation process, your new vehicle has been exposed to railroad dust, highway freight contamination, and pollution from sitting in storage lockers and on outdoor lots near waterside docks, railway stations, and industrial areas.
The dealership always provides a quickie car wash when you buy a new car, and it is always shining when you leave the lot, but most dealerships do not employ a professional detailer who knows anything about automotive paint or how to properly buff out a shine. If you look closely, you will inevitably find swirl marks, holograms, uneven paint, and light scratches.
Joab Flores of Platinum Plus will prep your new vehicle so it is free from scratches, swirls, streaks, water spots, oxidation, or holograms; and provide you with a detailed list of recommended car care products to use, and talk to you about adding a long-lasting protective coating that will help maintain that sparkling finish you just purchased!
Finally, why not kick off your new car purchase with routine clean car habits! Detailing increases its resell value, and lets you drive a safer, healthier vehicle all the time!
MY CAR IS OLD AND THE PAINT IS CLOUDY. IT NEEDS TO BE REPAINTED.
A respray on a full-sized vehicle runs about $1,500 – $2,000. On a classic, as much as $6,000.
Joab specialize in cleaning and safely removing oxidation, fine scratches, and paint flaws caused by the sun, bird droppings, bug splatter, and the effects of environmental fallout on aging single stage paint.
Dull paint cannot be washed off or even buffed to a shine without highly advanced detailing techniques like clay bar to clean the paint, followed by a trained multistage paint correction using abrasives and a buffer.
Honestly, most Platinum Plus customers cannot believe the results of their aging vehicles after Joab works his magic! So many car and truck owners were certain a respray was their only alternative.
As hard as we try not to soil our vehicles, life happens and as your vehicle ages, you will experience spills, accidents, wear, and tear. Spills result in stains that reek of bacteria-causing odors. Most people make stains and odors worse by trying to clean them themselves using soap and water and a low-suction car vac.
Just like on the outside, Platinum Plus uses some of the most advanced products and innovative techniques available to thoroughly clean and restore aging interiors using powerful steam that removes stains from fabrics and carpeting and the bacteria that causes bad odors over time.
DETAILING IS JUST AN EXPENSIVE CAR WASH?
Absolutely not! At the average car wash, you get little more than a superficial rinsing. Some car washes use abrasive textiles that leave fine scratches, which build up over time and dull your new paint. For an extra $10, you might get a worker to quick-vac your carpet, dust off your dashboard, wipe down your steering wheel, and spray some air freshener, but all they are really doing is displacing surface dirt and covering up any odors while leaving behind the bacteria that causes them.
Platinum Plus thoroughly cleans and reconditions your automobile inside and out. The goal is to revive, restore, maintain, and protect both the interior and exterior of your vehicle to as close as possible, showroom condition!
Washing is only the first of many steps in the detailing process, and we may even recommend additional steps such as paint correction, steam cleaning, or the added protection of automotive coatings.
Platinum Plus will always explain these services thoroughly, and advise you honestly.
Remember! Regularly detailing your vehicle helps maintain the maximum value of your vehicle!
