Inside and outside
A complete car detailing arsenal needs to contain units that handle exterior and interior cleaning tasks. For exterior detailing, it’s best to use a pressure washing machine with pressure levels of 1500 psi or less. Pressure levels that are higher than this can cause damage to the paint job and vehicle body. It’s also important to use power washers with water flow rates of 0.5 GPM, ideal for washing away dirt and debris without doing any harm to the vehicle. Dry steam machines are not ideal for car detailing, since they lack the sustained cleaning power required to clean the entire vehicle.
When it comes to interior detailing, it’s best to opt for carpet cleaning machines that use low water flow technology. These units will allow the car interior to dry out faster and more thoroughly, even if there isn’t much ventilation. Some of the best companies, such as Daimer®, offer all the units you need to make a complete car detailing arsenal.
