Why Choose a Detail Over a Car Wash

August 28, 2022

It's no secret that a clean car is a happy car. Not only does it look better, but it can also help protect your investment. When it comes to keeping your car clean, you have two main options: a traditional car wash or a professional detail. But which one is right for you? 


On the surface, a car wash might seem like the obvious choice. They're usually quicker and cheaper than a detail. However, there are some drawbacks to car washes that you should be aware of. First, the staff at most car washes are not trained professionals. They might not know how to care for your vehicle properly. Second, car washes typically use harsh chemicals that can damage your paint. Third, the high-pressure hoses used at most car washes can force dirt and debris into cracks and crevices, which can lead to rust and other problems down the road. 


A professional detail, on the other hand, offers several advantages over a traditional car wash. First, you can rest assured that your vehicle will be in good hands with our experienced and certified technicians. Second, we use gentle cleaning products that won't damage your paint or leave streaks behind. Third, we take the time to thoroughly clean every nook and cranny of your vehicle—including those difficult-to-reach places that car washes often miss. So when it comes time to choose between a car wash and a professional detail, remember: On The Spot Mobile Detailing is always the better choice!
