What is detailing?

Detailing is a meticulous process of cleaning, rejuvenating, and protecting the various surfaces in a vehicle.

Why should I have my vehicle detailed?

Every day, your vehicle is subjected to abuse; including the sun, dirt, smog, acid rain, brake dust, insects and bird droppings. A professional detail on a routine basis will protect your vehicle from such abuses, help keep your exterior paint and interior colors from fading and provide an added measure of protection. Just like a regular oil-change or tune-up, detailing your car is not just a good practice but also a good investment. Taking good care of your vehicle will help its longevity, increase its re-sale value and most importantly, keep it looking new! Studies have found a direct correlation between the cleanliness of one's vehicle and their overall happiness.

What is carpet shampooing?

There are many misconceptions when it comes to carpet cleaning. In the automotive industry many shops simply use the spot cleaning method. Spot cleaning is the application of a carpet cleaning product and some sort of brush to agitate the carpet. This method produces a visually clean carpet, but not only is the dirt left behind, but now there's a sticky soap on the carpets that will attract even more dirt. It is technically carpet shampooing, but it is not carpet cleaning.

To properly clean carpets we use several methods depending on the severity - shampoo and aggitation, to steam, to hot water rinse extraction. Carpet cleaning can produce a significant amount of moisture in a vehicle. If the vehicle is not thoroughly dry when it is delivered it can lead to temporary electronics malfunctions in stereo and navigation systems. Once the moisture dissipates the problems are resolved.

What is a clay bar?

Paint surface contamination is a build up various harsh elements out there on today’s roads including; red iron oxide speckles (found in metal brake dust), tree sap, bug spatter, and bird droppings. All of these commonly found elements can sustain permanent damage to a vehicle’s painted surface if left unchecked. Indy Auto Spa's contamination removal process begins by claying your vehicle. The clay glides over painted surfaces and removes very fine contaminates. You can use a "bag test" to check if your paint is contaminated. Place a plastic baggie over your hand and gently slide your fingertips along the paint. An uncontaminated surface will be as smooth as glass. A contaminated surface may feel smooth against your bare hand, but will feel rough or gritty through the bag.

Can you remove scratches?

Yes. Our detailing experts have been trained to remove most minor surface scratches, swirl marks, webbing and scuffs through the use of advanced polishing techniques. Let us examine your paint to see how we can rid your vehicle of this type of unsightly damage

What are my paint protection options?

Gives your vehicle enhanced shine and protection from the sun’s harmful rays, acid rain, salt, atmospheric pollution, insect fluids, and bird droppings. Wax should typically be re-applied every 3-6 weeks in order to be affective. Wax is considered a self-sacrificing form of protection which means it simply lays on top of the paint.

Paint Sealant:
Is a synthetic polymer, which actually bonds to your vehicle’s painted surface providing the ultimate protection and shine. Paint sealant should typically be re-applied every 3-6 months.


Paint Protection Film:

Paint protection film is a very strong, durable, optically clear film that is cut and applied to your vehicle. It is an expensive and difficult product to apply but provides unparalleled protection for painted surfaces. This product is commonly refered to as a clear bra because of its application in the protection against rock chips, bugs, and road debris.


Vinyl Graphics and wraps:
Wraps and graphics are very popular restyling options that also provide paint protection. The graphics adhere to the painted surfaces which protects the original paint from fading and wear and tear.
