Full Steam Ahead

It’s been a hectic past few weeks with some great changes.

We have finally recieved our Astra EVO Steamer! It allows us to wash the entire car with steam with as little as 3lt per car!

Dry Steam and Waterless is now the only two allowed methods of car wash for Level 4B for both formal and informal (i.e. at home) car wash, this is according to communication by the City Council.

We have used steam for over 8 years in our valet service as it leaves interior surfaces much drier than conventional wet extraction systems that everyone mistakenly calls “Steam cleaners”.  It kills bacteria and germs on contact and is a first line method in controlling odour.  This new addition allows to clean interior and exterior bodywork with just steam!

Steam on the outside of the car is the superior way to clean versus waterless as it gets where waterless simply cannot, think seams, wheels and arches! There is approximately 5% moisture in the steam generated from this unit. Condensation on exterior surfaces further aids safe cleaning. One area where I found Steam even better than high pressure is cleaning wheels, front bumper grilles and engines. Not to mention we dont suffer from wet feet anymore!

If there is a downside i’ve experienced is its loud. ūüėõ 

For customers old and new, I demonstrate the cleaning power of steam by showing them how safe the system is. you can hold you hand comfortable 10cm away from the tip and it feels like a hot shower. I then allow them to clean a dirty wheel and that just blows them away! This provides clients the confidence that steam cannot damage your paint or remove protective wax or sealants from your car. 

We do of course have a healthy respect for electronic systems and avoid blowing steam close to electronics.

So ProTouch Car Care is full steam ahead once more!

Car washing options in a water shortage

Hi All. I hope this message finds you well!

In light of the water shortage crisis we are experiencing, I thought to remind clients that we offer “normal car wash” (that is using high pressure rinsing before and after washing) as well as “waterless” options.

If you are concerned about scratches and swirls, we now offer a “Hybrid wash” whereby we pre-rinse with the high pressure to lift larger particles and clean the wheels and then complete the wash with waterless car care products. This offers our client the best of both worlds a proper clean with eco friendliness!

Additionally we also have a live steam unit that minimizes water consumption for both exterior car wash (ala steam car wash), engine cleaning and interior steam cleaning of carpets and upholstery.

We offer our R100 Mini Valet (using local product) and our R150 Premium Mini Valet (using Meguiars shampoo) in normal, all waterless and hybrid mode ensuring your car has only the best in care!

We are open Monday to Sunday from 8:30 to 5 on a booking basis for car wash, valets and polishing. So you never need to wait in line!

Message me if you have any questions!

Thanks Qiyaam

Volvo S40 Detail

This week we detailed a light metallic blue Volvo S40. 

The bonnet, roof and boot areas were resprayed some time but was not finished very well. Orange peel (a description of the texture of the finished sprayed article) was very fine and dense. Possibly from spraying to dry. There was a bad blend on the right rear pillar and roof corner that ended up standing out even more after we were finished, The only way to correct that would now be to redo that area.

We flatted the area , (also known as wet sanding) with 2000grit and then compound polished, and we finished the entire vehicle with a milder polish and sealant.

The results was fantastic!

November 2016 Specials

Hi All. At ProTouch we detail anything from Go Karts to Golfs!
 
November has kicked off with some interesting challenges. 
 
We detailed a Professional racing Go Kart made by Scuderia PCR (Italian of course) as well as a BMW M5 (F series). We also did a regular Mini Paceman over as it was scratched all over by a dog.  
 
Excitingly we have just purchased a few new buffing machines for specifically Glazing & Sealant applications. Made by Cyclo USA, Its the only machine on the market with patented dual polishing heads replicating hand polishing but by 250 times without causing swirls, burning or gouging! Used on Airforce One (ahem Donald Trumps soon to be new ride) and in other aircraft and boat polishing applications. 
 
We charge R350 for a Basic Glaze&Sealant inclusive of an exterior wash.
 
If required, clay treatments (to remove bonded dirt and contaminants on paint and glass) goes from R250.  
 
For all your Car Wash, Polishing/Detailing and Valet needs book with us now.

Black BMW E90 335i Hologram and Swirl Removal

This is a detail we did a long while back.

A Black BMW E90 335i with some serious holograms.

Holograms is usually caused by incorrect polishing technique.

They are called holograms because when you look at them they appear to shift and float within the paint.

Realistically though its just swirling that distorts the reflection of light hitting the paintwork.

Paint Correction On Black Porsche Carrera 4S

After posting the Silver Porsche I found that i didnt post anything about another Carrera 4S detail we’ve done.

This was one of the last details we did at my first car wash in Ottery before we closed there due to construction.

This poor baby had been badly detailed just prior by another detailer. There was still heavy swirls, scratches, paint chips and bad orange peel from a paint repair that¬†ended with me wet sanding the drivers side of the car to “blend” in the paintwork.

The result was of course stunning and flawless…

This is  an Enhancement detail we did in July (2016) on a Silver Porsche Carrera 4S (991)

Our Enhancement detail includes doing a wash, clay (to remove bonded contamination), Polish by machine, Sealant and then other details like door jambs, wheels, rubbers etc

In this case we used the fantastic CarPRO Essence for the bodywork and Menzerna 3 in 1 for jambs, wheels etc
