We at Vehiclescene.com hope to make this section on vehicle cleaning and detailing, a comprehensive and ultimate guide to keeping your vehicle looking like new using professional techniques and products.
As a proud car owner, the overall look and cleanliness of your car is of utmost importance. Seemingly simple tasks such as washing or waxing, if done incorrectly, can actually do more hard than good by causing micro scratches, swirl marks and more besides.
There’s also a whole world of difference between simply washing a vehicle, and detailing. The former can be a simple wash and vacuum, whereas detailing involves the complete, bumper to bumper cleaning – and restoration – of your car, inside and out, to make it look brand new.
The articles below will give you the knowledge needed to clean and detail your vehicles yourself at home, to keep your vehicles in the best condition they can possibly be, and remain an item for you to be proud of.
Oh, and the fact it will help to keep the highest possible resale value of your vehicle is somewhat of a bonus too!

Below you will find our collection of posts that are more restorative in nature. By which I mean bringing bodywork, upholstery and other areas of vehicles back to how they looked when they left the factory.
This can include things such as removing rust, restoring faded paint, wet sanding or removing plasti dip, anything that falls under detailing that requires the removal or repair of something, to return a car part to how it was supposed to look when new.
