DECONTAMINATION WASH

For vehicles not previously detailed by SAVS.

A decontamination would also be carried out before applying a durable layer of protection, this ensures a perfectly prepped surface for the chosen protection to bond to, also maximising the protections durability.

This is an essential process prior to machine polishing.

Your vehicle's surface is filled with contaminants. Some of these may be visible, such bug guts, bird droppings, water spots, and tree spots. And some contaminants, such as iron deposits, brake dust, and overspray may not be visible to the naked eye.

In addition to contaminants, you may also have previous waxes and sealants still on your vehicle's surface. These contaminants sit upon your vehicle's "clear coat", which is the layer of resin directly above your car's paint

We recommend this service every 3-6 months.

STEPS INVOLVED

1.5 - 2 hours

PRE-WASH
Using a snow foam solution, this process softens dirt and road grime making it far easier to be removed

INTENSE, WAX-FREE WASH
Using a pH-neutral shampoo, the wash includes door shuts, fuel cap area and panel gaps using the appropriate choice of a Two Bucket Method with Grit Guards along with lambswool mitts and soft brushes to protect against inflicting surface marks

CAR WASHED
The top half of the car is washed and then separate, clean mitts are used to wash the bottom half

WHEELS WASHED
Using separate buckets, the wheels are washed using pH-neutral shampoo and pH-neutral brake dust removers and includes wheel arches (wheels are turned full and opposite locks), brake callipers and the inside of the alloy with metal-free, 100% lambswool tools and soft-bristle brushes

RINSING
The car is then rinsed with softened and deionised filtered water

DEGREASING & TAR REMOVAL
We use a variety of citrus degreasers and tar removers and are agitated as necessary in high-impact areas with soft, non-scratch detailing brushes

DECONTAMINATION
We decontaminate the car’s paint (including alloy wheels) using various fallout removers to remove any bonded contaminants including iron filing residue from brake dust and surrounding environments such as train stations and factories

SECONDARY RINSE
We snow foam and rinse the car for a second time to ensure we remove all product residue that may have lingered post-washing, degreasing and decontamination

CLAYING
We use a clay bar (an engineered resin compound) to remove any bonded contaminants that the multiple washes failed to. This leaves the surface of the car perfectly smooth and prepped for the detailing process

DRYING
The vehicle is dried thoroughly using plush drying towels and warm filtered air to blow-dry hard-to-reach areas, minimising water spots and leaving a perfect finish
