How We See Automotive Detailing

At J’’s Auto Cleaning Service, we are proud of the experience we have with automotive detailing, beautification, and restoration. Since 1985, we have presented to our customers the detailed eye needed to bring their automobile back to that showroom shine.We use the most modern chemicals and technology available today, as well as time honored techniques going back over 30 years. Over this time, we have developed a loyal following of clients throughout the Hampton Roads area.

At J’s Auto Cleaning Service, everything starts with a handwash, done the old fashioned way. Unlike brush washes on conveyor belts, a hand wash will not scratch or damage the exterior of your car, and our technicians have the eye for detail that a machine wash simply does not have. Our exterior hand wash starts with a presoak, using a non-caustic polymer based bug remover to remove any insect and road residue from the paint. After the presoak cleaning we follow up with a carnauba based car was to brighten and enhance your paint. All tires and wheel wells are degreased and cleaned to remove caustic brake dust, caked on dirt, and road debris. After the presoak and carnauba wash, the paint is hand dried with a chamois. The final steps in our hand wash is to clean the exterior windows, apply a high gloss tire shine, and clean your auto’s rims .

Our Beauty Care One package consists of the Hand Wash package, and is followed by a thorough interior vacuuming including the trunk area, cleaning of the door jams. and wiping the dashboard and control area down. This is followed with a leather and vinyl protectant to minimize damage and dryness from harmful UV light in the cabin area. This is our most popular basic cleaning package , and a great package for regular maintenance between more thorough detailing packages.

If a high quality exterior cleaning is what you're looking for for , you can’t go wrong with our Minimum Beauty Care One detailing package. Over time, road debris, snow, rain, and dirt buildup minimize the shine of your paint. If you do not keep up the maintenance of your paint, your clear coat can start to oxidize, crack, or peel. Our Minimum Beauty Care One package is a comprehensive reconditioning and beautification process for your paint, as well as a general cleaning of the interior. We start with our hand wash,, presoaking to remove any oily residues, road tar, and contaminants that may be present on the paint. Then, all painted surfaces are comprehensively buffed out with a high speed polisher or clay barred to remove oxidation and bring your paint back to life. All exterior vinyl trim is treated with a high quality non-silicone vinyl treatment to protect against fading and restore factory shine. Our paint process is followed up with a high gloss carnauba based wax treatment to add a deep shine to your vehicles paint. We also thoroughly vacuum the interior of your vehicle, clean the interior and exterior windows, door jams , tires, rims and wheel wells.
