For our exterior detailing service, our team begins by thoroughly washing and drying your vehicle, then applying a Claybar treatment to eliminate surface contaminants. Following that, we perform a single-stage machine polish to bring back the shine and luster of your vehicle's paint. To provide long-lasting protection, we apply a wax coating and finish with our 6-month ceramic sealant. Additionally, we clean your tires and wheels and hand-polish the glass for a flawless, crystal-clear finish.

Undercoating is the perfect way to keep your car looking new and performing perfectly for years and is especially important during the winter months. Undercoating will protect the most vulnerable parts of your vehicle from road debris and corrosion.

The undercoating process: We start by cleaning the underside of your vehicle with high pressure water and spraying it with fluid film, which is a lanolin-based corrosion preventive that is self-healing and wont chip or peel off to save the underside of your vehicle from all the salt in the winter months.

What People Say About Us

“Got a five-year ceramic coating and interior detail. My car looks brand new. Extremely glossy. Washing is much easier. And the inside looks new. Highly recommend.”

“The owner/operator, Nick, did a fantastic job detailing my car. His attention to detail and customer service are both top-notch. Not only does my car look better than it did when it rolled off the showroom floor three years ago, but Nick accommodated my late-night drop-off, and kept me informed of my car's status throughout the next day. Turning your keys over to someone else is tough but knowing the business owner is the one working on your vehicle makes it easier.”

“South Elmwood Detail did an amazing job with my Honda SUV. It was like brand new and it has made keeping my interior easier to keep up with. Customer service was great, Nick was responsive to my emails and had my car done in less time than they estimated. Definitely worth the cost and I will return for more details.”

“The Owner was professional, outgoing, fair & attentive. Definitely worth the trip. If you support small business, you should support this small business. I never met this young man before, but after talking with him you can tell he works hard & cares about his craft. If I could give more stars I would.”
