Maintenance washes

Maintenance wash:
Average labor invested is 2-4 hours

Once your vehicle has been reconditioned by Distinguished Detail, our customers are encouraged to keep that revitalized ride looking its’ best. Call to schedule your regular maintenance interval to help maintain your vehicles value and appearance.
All vehicle washing is done using only eco-friendly biodegradable products.

Although we are not into volume washing it is something we provide existing clients and during promotional periods. Once a customer has received an exterior paint correction service we can provide weekly, monthly or intermittent maintenance washes. The average wash detail will take 2-4 hours to complete and is extremely thorough. This is the same process as our package 1A minus the machine/paint correction phase. However, it is recommended that at least once a year to have a little more done to maintain the finish.

NOTE: If this is your first service with us, an assessment of your vehicles defects and blemishes will be provided to determine what level of correction may be necessary to remove swirls, scratches, holograms, etching and oxidation. Based on scheduling those correction services may require an additional appointment. The maximum travel distance for a maintenance wash is limited to 15 miles for nonclients requesting a wash as their first service.

Scheduling: Since most of our services take days not hours all maintenance wash’s must be by appointment. However, we may announce windows of availability due to changes in the schedule, openings or weather. We will do our best to offer certain days of the week for this service. We also may be limited to the number of clients we can assist. All existing clients take priority during scheduling for maintenance washes.

THE BIRD BATH
This is easily the most convenient of maintenance washes. We utilize a rinseless system that does not require a hose to wash your car. Even though we call it a bird bath we can get awesome results by placing the same level of effort as a regular wash.
No Rinse Wash & Shine by Optimum is the most technologically advanced car wash system to date, that requires just a single bucket of water to wash an entire car. Optimum NO Rinse & Shine (as the name suggests) does not require rinsing with a hose since there are no soapy surfactants to wash off.
This unique product contains substantive polymers that bond to the paint and protect it from abrasion during the wash. These polymers off greater protection and lubrication than conventional car washes and leave a slick and gloss finish behind afterwards. The waste water is in the bucket can be used to water the lawn or disposed into a sink, where it will be treated. Other additional benefits of No Rinse Wash & Shine are faster washes, the ability to wash anywhere at any time including inside the garage during winter, no messy runoffs, and a better looking finish.
• Full exterior rinseless wash followed by a waterless wash
• Properly dress tires for shine and protection.
• Detail fender wells and plastic trim for color enhancement and conditioning.
• Finishing touch wipe down with a professional detailing spray wax blend for that extra shine and UV protection. Also applied to outer wheel surface to help repel brake dust.

Note: This system is only offered to existing clients that have received a previous correction package or ceramic coating. It’s my opinion that extremely dirty vehicles receive a regular wash to maximize the amount of debris that can be removed from exterior cracks and crevices. The bird bath may not be sufficient in every situation, but it is a great way to intermittently keep a car clean especially in the winter months.

Due to the convenient locations where this service can be provided the interior clean-up may not be practical or accessible. We provide 2 different offerings for this service. Maximum travel distance for this service is limited to 15 miles for exterior only.
