Car Detailing Process: What is Car Detailing? How To Do It Successfully In 4 Steps?

Car Detailing

Car detailing process is a process to restore a vehicle to it’s factory condition. Car detailing process is a long-process that involves cleaning and reconditioning of both interior and exterior of the car. The aim of this is to restore the paintwork by removing paint defects such as scratches,  swirl marks, oxidations etc  to make the car look brand new. Many wrongly understood that auto detailing process is all about applying ceramic coating. In fact, ceramic coating is just an option in the protection stage of the car detailing process.

Car Detailing Process

The car detailing process includes various steps, these detailing steps can be grouped into four steps. This categorisation helps you to group the detailing steps without confusing and miss any of the steps in auto detailing process. The order of the detailing steps needs to be followed to avoid any confusion and possible misses.

GreenZ 4 Stage Process

01. Cleaning & Decontamination Stage

WHEELS & TIRES: The wheels, tires and the inner arch of the fender are thoroughly cleaned using GreenZ Wheel Cleaner & GreenZ APC with  recommended detailing brushes for effective cleaning.

The wheels & tire cleaning also includes decontamination of brake dust, iron deposit & tar using specific cleaners like GYEON Q²M IRON and GYEON Q²M TAR which are body safe and not only cleans but also restores the lost look. This process ensures your ride’s wheels are free from any iron contamination and break-dust, presence of which otherwise can corrode and damage the alloy wheels.

SALT & MINERAL DEPOSIT REMOVAL, LOGO CLEANING: All the dirt, salt and mineral deposits are removed from the body, especially from the logo using special chemicals GreenZ MDR & special brushes.

CAR WASH: The body is thoroughly washed using PH-neutral shampoo like GreenZ Foam Shampoo that’s safe on paints and coating, and will be dried using the GreenZ Supreme Drying Towel which will ensure no further streaks are induced on the paint surface.

TAR DECONTAMINATION: Vehicles usually collect large amounts of tar and asphalt contamination during daily use, these tar spots will be removed using GYEON Q2M TAR.

CLAYING: After washing the car thoroughly to get rid of the surface contaminants, it will be later clayed using GYEON Q² M Clay to remove any further contaminants that are bonded with the paint and were not able to get removed by washing.

After this process, car will be completely free from any contaminants & dirt.

02. Correction Stage

We use our own compounds, polishes and pads which are manufactured in Germany to correct the paint surface. We use GreenZ XtremeCut Compound 350 with GreenZ Denim Pad to remove orange peel and deep scratches. To remove severe scratches, we use GreenZ XtremeCut Compound 350 along with our GreenZ Compressed Hybrid Wool Pad 6.5″ or GreenZ Hybrid Green Xtreme Cutting Foam Pad or GreenZ Hybrid White Heavy Cutting Foam Pad depending on the nature of paint and the paint defects.

Then use GreenZ Heavy Cut Compound 600 with our GreenZ Hybrid White Heavy Cutting Foam Pad or GreenZ Hybrid Orange Medium Cutting Foam Pad to remove swirls and minor and medium scratches.

Finally use our GreenZ Ultra Finish Polish 4500 and GreenZ Hybrid Black Finishing Foam Pad on a DA polisher which will bring mirror finish on the paint surface.

Unlike our competitions, the excellent combination of our compounds and pads enable us to use two-step correction in most of the situations and preserve a lots of clear coat on our customer cars.

03. Protection Stage

We follow the car detailing process suggested by the respective manufacturers strictly & religiously when it comes with paint protection to get the best out of their paint protection products.

PREPPING: After multiple steps of polishing are performed, it calls for a need of surgical-clean of the paint surface before any kind of protection is performed. The body will be wiped down with GYEON Q²M PREP for proper vehicle preparation before any protection application to the paint surface.

This serves two purposes, it degreases the paint surface and removes the polish residue and any oil content presented in the polishes, it also gives anti-static property, so the dust particles won’t settle on the surface and makes the surface oil-free and dust-free for a perfect coating. This process is very important as ceramic coatings require a clean and bare paint surface to do a perfect chemical bonding for better durability.

INTERIOR PROTECTION: Car’s dashboard will be protected using GYEON Q²M Preserve as part of our interior car detailing process and fabric seats will be protected using GYEON Q² Fabric Coat and leather seats using GYEON Q² Leather Shield.

PAINT PROTECTION: After Prepping, the paint will be protected with the ceramic coating such as GYEON Q² MOHS EVO Kit or GreenZ Infinity Coat Gold and will be wiped using suede microfiber cloth. Multiple layers will be added based on the package chosen.

GLASS PROTECTION: Car’s glasses will be protected using GYEON Q² VIEW.

TIRE DRESSING: The cleaned tires are dressed with water-based dresser which restores the shine and safeguards the rubber from cracking.

Also, use our Tyre coating – GYEON Q² TIRE which can last 3 – 4 months as an add-on service for more durability and protection for the tyres.

EXTERIOR PLASTICS CLEANED & DRESSED: The exterior plastics are cleaned using specific plastic cleaners and later dressed with water based dresser which restores the shine and safeguards the plastic from UV rays.

We have plastic restoration product – GYEON Q² TRIM, which can restore the faded-plastic and protect it for more than 12 months as an add-on service.

CHROME & METAL SURFACES CLEANED AND POLISHED: All the chrome and metal surfaces are treated with metal polish like GYEON Q²M MetalPolish to clean and restore the gloss.

Car’s metal parts such as wheels, exhaust pipes etc using GYEON Q² RIM
