The detailing professionals at Wipe Me Down visited Bon Air, VA to restore this Honda CRV to its original glory. The entire exterior of the vehicle was detailed, but this picture highlights the intense cleaning the interior received. The carpet and floormats were thoroughly vacuumed. All spots and stains were then treated with either degreaser, enzyme based, or an oxygenated pre-treatment depending on the location and type of discoloration. Specially formulated shampoo was then used to clean the floormats and carpeting. All excess water and shampoo was extracted which removes dirt and grime and expedites drying. The leather was cleaned with leather cleaner then dressed with a mink oil based leather conditioner. All remaining surfaces were cleaned then dressed. This includes the dashboard, instrument panel, center console, cup holders, door panels, vents,etc. All windows were cleaned. The finishing touch is an ozone treatment which removes odors and leaves a neutral scent.

The Difference Between Wax, Glaze and Polish.
This article is being written to give the average consumer a better understanding of the difference between wax, polish and glaze and how the 3 are best used.
Wax protects and beautifies a paint’s finish by adding a protective layer on top of the clear coat that increases shine and may even fill in minor imperfections. Waxing however does not correct more severe imperfections such as oxidation, dullness or swirls. This is where polishing comes in. Polish is a substance that uses abrasives to remove layers of the top coat to correct imperfections. Quality polishes contain diminishing abrasives that break down into smaller particles as it is being worked into the top layers of clear coat. This evens outs the surface and gives your paint the “polished” look. Glaze may be used as a substitution to polishing; especially if you do not want to continuously remove layers of clear coat each time your vehicle is detailed. Glaze is an oil rich liquid that temporarily fills in and hides swirls and scratches. Using a glaze as opposed to polish is also beneficial on modern paint finishes which tend to be softer. In addition, it is not uncommon for a vehicle to be polished, then glazed to achieve the absolute best results. In any case, it is essential to seal in your polish or glaze work with a good wax, or call Wipe Me Down Mobile Detailing and we’ll handle everything for you!

With the seasons changing and the colder months on our doorstep, the savvy vehicle owner may be dreading the havoc that winter can wreak on their shiny investment. Considering the harmful effects of ice, mud, sand and salt on your vehicle's paint is enough to make one cringe. Add to that the dead leaves, sap and bird droppings of Fall and we can all agree that now is an awesome time to take some proactive steps. Instead of waiting until next spring to try and correct the damage done to your paint's finish, applying a protective coating of wax on your vehicle, before temperature and conditions reach extremes, will greatly increase the longevity of your paint and the luster in its appearance. September and October typically have a more moderate climate than the preceding months which also make them ideal for servicing your vehicles's paint. So whether you decide to call Wipe Me Down Mobile Detailing or choose to take a more personal approach to the task, right now is an Awesome time to wax!

In advocating education as the most viable means of empowerment, I mean much more than our people’s ability to read and write. I mean a process of intellectual development that should last as long as there is life within us.

when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
but when we are silent
we are still afraid
so it is better to speak
we were never meant to survive
