Mirror finish detail – your car detailing professionals

Car detailing Melbourne

I am sure you remember the day you bought your car. From the moment you first saw it, got inside and drove away. Remember the way it shone from tip to toe, not a blemish in sight and the way it smelled when you got inside. How’s it looking now?

1119856There is no reason you can’t maintain that showroom condition, inside and out, and enjoy that distinct new car smell as often as you want. Short of buying a new car every few months, the only way to do achieve that new car look and smell is professional detailing.

I say professional detailing because that is what it is. Every second person with a bucket, a bit of soap and a sponge thinks they can be a car detailer these days. That is not the way it works.

Professional car detailing is an art, it requires skill and perfection. One needs to have the right tools for the job, the experience and skills to do it correctly and a passion for getting the job done right.

We follow a meticulous, step-by-step process. After carefully and thoroughly washing every nook and cranny of the exterior of the car with our quality, specially formulated snow foam and microfiber cloths, we then proceed to decontaminate the paintwork with a clay bar. This removes all residual, ingrained dirt and any imperfections. This includes bug splatters, bird droppings, pollution, chemical and petrol spills as well as water spots. It will also strip away any old wax build-up.

We do not just clean the parts of the car that can be seen and equal attention is paid to the underside, the chassis and the wheel wells.

Once done, we give every inch of the vehicle a machine buff and polish, again using our specially formulated equipment and techniques. This helps to bring out the natural shine of the paintwork, restoring the colour and removing all but the deepest scratches and blemishes. Our car detailing Melbourne specialty!

Special attention is paid to restoring light covers to ensure they not only look great but perform at their optimal level at maximum brightness and clarity.

The next step is to apply a protective layer of our special blend of wax treatment. This will enhance the colour, remove any remaining surface scratches and minor imperfections and leave the car gleaming. When we have completed the waxing, we wax again. It’s not called detailing for nothing, we leave nothing to chance and a second application of wax will make 100% sure that not one spot is missed and will result in a long-lasting, protective layer.

The waxing technique will not only make the car radiant but will give your vehicle many months of protection and make it very easy to keep spotless between now and the next time we detail your car. I say we because if we detail your car for you once, you will never go anywhere else in the future. The product will form a lasting bond with the paintwork to ensure a long lasting benefit.

The wheels, tires, plastic trim, light covers and windows all get very careful attention and will gleam like new.

The engine is the area where you really need the expertise and experience of professional detailers like Mirror Finish Detail. We leave nothing to chance and take particular care to ensure that we leave the engine spotless with zero risk of damage or liquids getting where they are not wanted.

Now that the body and engine are looking like the day you picked the car up, we move on to the interior.

Leathers seats and trim are treated to a plush leather cleaner that will restore them to their former glory and give them a nourishing treatment to enhance the shine and protect from fading or cracking. Cloth seats, as well as the carpets, will get a deep shampoo and spot stain treatment where necessary. We also pay particular attention to the roof-lining.

The dashboard, all control panels, trims and every square inch of the interior of the car is meticulously cleaned and treated for protection and shine.

Lastly, we have perfected the art of getting your windows and mirrors, as well as any chrome work looking 100%.

Before the car is returned to you a full inspection is conducted to ensure nothing has been overlooked or is anything but 100% perfect.

 

Why detail your car?

As I am sure you can see, there is a world of difference between a good car wash and having your vehicle professionally detailed. Apart from enhancing your driving experience, good detailing will improve the safety of your vehicle, protect the paintwork, upholstery, light covers, plastics and trimmings of your investment and enhance the future value of your car.

 

How often should I have my car detailed?

A lot will depend on the type of vehicle as well as where and how often you drive. The protection afforded by professional detailing will last from four to six months so use that as a guideline.

If you are planning to sell a vehicle, detailing is a must. You will get the cost of the service back at least 10 times over and sell your car that much faster, with less negotiation.

At Mirror finish detail we are equally skilled at doing the same fantastic transformation to trucks, RVs, caravans motorcycles and boats. We also offer a fleet detailing service.

We have a range of options available for car detailing from a superior, high-quality wash and wax to the full, deluxe treatment.
