As the name implies, this service should fully clean your vehicle and bring this “showroom look”. Of course, you cannot expect a full valet to tend to light scratches, swirl marks, paint correction, leather or carpet repairs, but you can expect a full clean of your vehicle because the full valet is designed to get rid of all the impurities from both the inside and outside. Our friends from Car Valet Cheltenham are here to give you a closer look at what you can expect a full valet to include:
Full Exterior Wash – You can expect a full wash of your vehicle’s body and the wheels. The person performing this task should take their time and nothing should be missed.
Tar Spots/Tree Sap Removed – Over time your vehicles will accumulate a lot of hard dirt spots on its exterior, called tar spots. As part of the full valet service, you can expect these to be removed. Also, if your vehicle has been sitting under a tree for a long period of time, it will undoubtedly be inflicted with tree sap. This should be removed as part of the service as well.
Layer Of Wax Applied For Protection – Once the vehicle is free from dirt and other contaminants a layer of wax should be applied for protection and a lasting shine. This keeps your car looking great and cleaner for longer.
Full Interior Vacuum – The interior of your car should be fully vacuumed. This should include the boot, side pockets, storage compartments, glove box, dashboard and every other nook and cranny within your vehicle.
Full Interior Carpet Shampoo – Once the car is fully vacuumed, a professional carpet cleaner should be sued to remove all of the hard dirt and filth which is festering within the carpets that a vacuum cannot get to.
Leather Cleaned – If the vehicle has leather inside then it should all be professionally cleaned with the appropriate product. Once the leather is clean, a feed should be applied to bring it back to life and revitalise it from its flat old self.
Plastics, Dashboard, Matte, Chrome Cleaned – All of the plastics within the vehicle should be cleaned and dried, the dashboard should be cleaned and all of the ‘fluff’ which tends to linger should be wiped away. Every inch of the vehicle should be cleaned and then dried to bring it back to its original condition.
Headlining Cleaned – The top of your car has a material that is often referred to as headlining, it gets dirty and needs to be cleaned in a specific way to avoid damage.
Tyres & Trim – To give your vehicle that brand new look, the tyres and trim should be dressed to help them look clean and fresh. Also if any of the exterior plastic’s colour is faded in any way then this should also be treated.
Windows & Glass Cleaned – This is usually the final step in the full valet process and really finishes the final look off nicely. All windows and glass should be fully cleaned and then buffed dry to perfection. There should be no smudges on the windows, mirrors, wing mirrors or door handles once the job has been done.
