Paint Protection

The paint on your car not only adds to the beauty of your vehicle, but it also serves the very important purpose of protecting the metal beneath. Not getting your vehicle cleaned properly could shorten its lifespan as it will make it more susceptible to corrosion and rust.  As such it is important to care for your paint. A professional car detailer will do this in three crucial steps - cleaning, correcting and protecting. To begin with your vehicle should be carefully hand washed and dried to remove any dirt or grime. Secondly, a clay bar should be used to remove any excess dirt, tar, metal particles, etc. in the clear coat. After this, the paint can be polished to remove any swirl marks or small scratches. Finally, the paint is protected by applying wax, which will seal it and give it a beautiful shine.

Chassis and Wheels

Many people neglect cleaning their wheels as they believe that they will quickly get dirty anyway. This is not a good practice. Proper wheel care will prolong the life of your wheels, helping them to resist cracking and corrosion. Your wheels and chassis should be thoroughly cleaned along with the rest of the exterior. Make sure that this includes cleaning inside the wheel wells and around the major suspension components. Finally, they should be coated with a quality protectant.

Headlights, Taillights, and Trim

It is important to not only have your headlights and taillights polished but afterwards, a plastic sealant should be applied to further protect them. All chrome trim should be thoroughly cleaned. In addition to cleaning, vinyl and plastic trims should be dressed with a special protectant to keep them from fading or cracking.


The interior or your vehicle should be looked after as much as the exterior. A thorough detailing service will not only include shampooing or steam cleaning all of the upholstery and carpeting in the passenger areas, but also the interior of the trunk. All vinyl surfaces should be properly cleaned and protected, and any leather should be conditioned to discourage fading or cracking.

Car detailing takes a lot of time and patience to do properly. If you don't have the time, let the professionals at Hansma Automotive do it for you. Contact us today for an appointment.

How Much Does Professional Car Detailing Cost?

The price of professional car detailing can vary greatly depending on the type of services, size and make of your vehicle, and whether or not you would like to pay for additional services such as cleaning the engine bay. Larger vehicles such as SUV's will generally cost more. You can also expect to pay more if you request the highest quality shampoos and cleaning products. The time it takes to do the car detailing will also depend on your model of vehicle and the services requested. Most jobs can be done in two hours or less.  If you don't have the time to wait, Hansma automotive offers a handy shuttle service to take you anywhere you need to go while your vehicle is being detailed.
