The basic detail should be completed approximately every 4 months.
It consists of a hand wash, bug/tar removal, tire/wheel clean and shine, windows cleaned inside/out, plastic restored/protected, entire car hand waxed with high quality carnauba wax, carpets vacuumed/shampooed, and minor paint defects repaired.
As the name suggests, the annual detail should be completed once a year, depending on environmental conditions. It consists of everything in the basic detail plus:
1. Clay Bar Paint Treatment - removes bonded contaminants that infect your paint and leave bumpy surface.
2. Swirl Removal - removes the swirls left in your paint from automatic car washes and dirty drying towels etc
3. Scratch Removal - removes light scratches in your paint
These steps combine to provide a show-car like shine, but most importantly, the annual detail protects your paint from the damaging environment.
