What Does Auto Detailing At Astonishing Detail Offer?
At Astonishing Detail, we offers various stages of auto detailing. Here are what we do for your vehicle.
Auto upholstery repair and replacement involve restoring and fixing various interior components of a car, including carpet, torn seats, sagging headliners, and armrests. These are common issues due to wear and tear, aging, or accidents. Astonishing Detail will fix and maintain your interior upholstery, regardless of the material, texture, or color. Astonishing Detail in Richmond can perform auto upholstery repair and match, replace, or recover leather car seats, vinyl, or fabrics in almost any color and pattern.
Our legendary full-service hand car washes cater to auto enthusiasts with experienced providers who preserve your vehicle’s protective finish, including Ceramic Coatings, PPF paint protection film, and vinyl wraps. We use soft materials and pH-neutral soap to prevent scratching, and our meticulous techniques bring out the brilliance of chrome and glass. We also clean rims and tires and apply UV protectorates to tires.
Waxes and sealants protect and enhance paint finishes, but achieving a brilliant shine requires additional steps like claying and polishing. Waxes last about 2 to 4 months, while sealants or ceramic coatings offer more durable protection for 1 to 7 years, depending on the product’s rating. Regular hand washing and reapplication of wax or sealant are essential for optimum protection.
Odor removal is a specialized service that goes beyond masking unpleasant smells. It targets the root causes of odors, which can indicate underlying issues within the vehicle. Some malodors can release gases that pose health risks, such as carcinogenic compounds or mold spores, triggering respiratory problems. Astonishing Detail offers comprehensive odor removal services for various odors, using specialized tools and chemicals to eliminate them effectively. We prioritize the well-being of our clients and create a safer and more comfortable environment within their vehicles.
Water Damage Restoration / Water Damage Repair
Water damage restoration for cars refers to the process of repairing and restoring vehicles that have been affected by water damage. When water enters a car, it can cause damage to its interior component. At Astonishing Detail, we offer comprehensive water damage restoration services to address various types of vehicle water entry. Our team, with over 40 years of experience, is dedicated to mitigating mold in your car and ensuring the safety and well-being of you and your family.
Pet Urine removal / Pet Odor removal / Pet stain removal
Pet urine is a complex biological fluid comprising of various components, including water, urea, uric acid, salts, enzymes, hormones, and other waste products. The release of ammonia gases contributes to the unpleasant smell associated with urine. The amount of liquid animals can eliminate through urine varies based on size, hydration levels, and overall health. Being larger animals, dogs can typically produce a larger volume of urine compared to smaller animals like cats.
Vinyl & Leather Repair
Vinyl and leather repair for cars involves restoring damaged or worn-out interior surfaces like seats, dashboards, and door panels. Thorough cleaning and detailing are essential before completing the repairs, ensuring the car’s interior looks refreshed, well-maintained, and comfortable for passengers. Whether it’s standard or special fabrics like aniline, nubuck, or suede leather, Astonishing Detail uses pH-neutral cleaners that preserve the integrity of the finish during the cleaning process.
Stain removal means eliminating unwanted marks or discolorations from surfaces, such as fabrics, carpets, upholstery, or hard surfaces. We recognize that every stain is unique and may require a tailored approach for effective removal. Our professionals individually assess each stain, upholstery, and carpet fiber and develop customized solutions to address them. At Astonishing Detail, we specialize in removing stubborn stains that can mar the appearance and odor of your vehicle. Our stain removal experts are skilled in treating many common stains that car owners encounter.
We have a wide range of advanced equipment for efficient carpet cleaning, including shampoo extractors, steam machines, circular brushes, wet/dry and HEPA vacuums, and subsurface extraction tools. We also have specialized tools like air-driven tornados, pet hair tools, and carpet rakes to clean challenging areas between seats or deep down at the base of the carpet. Additionally, we offer the option to remove seats for accessing tight spaces and handling spills or malodorous materials, though this may come with an extra cost.
