Detailing car

Depending on how thorough the car detailing job is, Grand Island drivers can expect to wait from 30 minutes up to an entire business day for their car to be detailed. Of course, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration, including how dirty the vehicle is, the size of the vehicle, and how thorough you want the detail to be.

How to Detail Your Car

If you’d rather not pay for experts around Grand Island to detail your car, you can do the work yourself.

  • Start on the outside, using cleaners remove dead bugs, road debris, tar, and other detritus first to avoid scratching the paint.
  • Next, give it a good wash with a soft mitt and specially formulated auto wash soap. If necessary, use a soft bristled toothbrush to clean around emblems, trim, and in between panels.
  • Hand dry, then use glass cleaner to remove the spots from the windows. Run a clay bar carefully across the panels and glass to remove any additional dirt you missed.
  • Using a stiffer brush and your tire cleaner, scrub your wheels and tires, removing road dirt and brake dust for a more finished look.
  • Finish with carefully applied car wax for a sparkling shine that will last.

Car Interior Detailing

Start by vacuuming up any stray food, dirt, or debris inside the vehicle, especially under the seats and remove the trash. Use canned air to blast dirt out of crevices to make sucking it all up easier.

Wooden skewers or cotton swabs can help with anything stuck in those tight spaces and, when cleaning solution is applied, can give your cup holders and console a like-new look.

For vents, carefully press silly putty into the openings, pulling it out slowly. This will remove dust and dirt without your forcing tools inside.

Foaming cleaners can be found in variety stores from Holdrege to North Platte and work well to remove stains from your carpet and upholstery, without getting things too wet.
