Detailing Made Simple: Saving Time in the Prep Bay

Many professional detailers and novices as well are plagued by the amount of time spent just to prep a vehicle before performing a full detailing. Many spend 2, 3 and even 4 hours just to prepare a car for the detailing process!! I can’t help but to scratch my head when I read how in-depth a person feels they need to go just to prep a car for a detailing operation. Even though properly prepping a car is unarguably the most important step in the detail process, some are under the false notion that the vehicle has to be surgically clean prior to polishing the paint and/or cleaning the interior. And as a result they spend unnecessary amounts of time performing the wash prep process. Things that include and are not limited to would be using multiple wash buckets to sterilize their wash media after wiping down each panel. Dousing the car down with a thick & expensive layer of car wash soap foam thinking it is deeply cleaning the car’s surface. Using a barrage of tiny little brushes on every crack & crevice of a vehicle so they can justify that every nook and cranny is extra clean. Using expensive, slow working chemicals to clean & decontaminate a vehicle’s surfaces. Little do they realize that pretty much most of these extra steps actually cost them valuable time & money unnecessarily.  So, as a result, I’ve decided to come up with a simplistic approach to prepping your car for the detail process. This car be used in all detailing environments. From mobile to fixed location. High end to mass production. 1st we need to understand that there are certain factors that may or may not need to be considered when doing a prep detail. This would 1st and foremost directly depend on the agreements you’ve made with your client and to what extent you feel comfortable going in your details normally. Variable processes that can directly affect your overall times are as follows: **Extent to which you clean your wheels. (faces vs. barrels vs. behind spokes) Hands down, the extent to which you decide to clean a wheel can play a huge factor in the amount of time spent on a detail. Depending on the wheel AND the client’s expectations, dialing in on what is required can dramatically affect your total touch time. Some wheels, based on their design, don’t show off/expose their inner wheel barrel. As a result, this area of the wheel might not require extra cleaning steps for the specific job. Having this discussion with your customer before the onset of the detail to determine their expectations is critical. If a client is only anticipating a clean wheel face, it might not be...
