Your car is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s your trusty steed, your partner in crime, and a means of escape to roads of infinite possibility. You rely on it to get you where you need to go, so taking care of it is essential. That’s why regular maintenance is vital. But have you ever considered the importance of a thorough, top to bottom detailed wash?

Vehicle maintenance is vital, there’s no doubt about it, but what does that have to do with detailing? Regular upkeep can help prolong the life of your car, save you money on repairs, and maintain its value. However, both the value and the life span of your vehicle will take a hit over time if you neglect cleanliness. One aspect of car maintenance that is often overlooked is getting a detailed wash. While it may seem like an unnecessary expense, a detailed wash can actually be an investment toward increasing the overall value and longevity of your vehicle.

Basic VS Detailed

Basic car washes are a dime a dozen. They’re fast, cheap, and get the job done. But a detailed wash? Now that’s something special. Basic car washes are often quick and only involve a spray down with soap and water. However, a detailed wash is a much more thorough process. At Five Points, we use a carefully curated auto detailing procedure to not only clean but revive and enhance your vehicle, top to bottom and inside out. This meticulous attention to detail ensures that no part of your car is overlooked or left unattended. 

So what exactly goes into a detailed wash? It’s a comprehensive process that involves a multi-step approach to cleaning your vehicle’s interior and exterior. We start with a thorough hand wash and dry of the body. No machines here, just good old-fashioned elbow grease. Next up, we use a premium clay bar to remove any contaminants, blemishes, and residue. Then, we polish the entirety of the exterior to restore the vehicle’s original paint. And finally, we seal and wax the surface to give it a dazzling glossy shine. Trust us; your car will thank you for it.

The Interior

The thorough detailing and benefits we’ve just explained are only the beginning of this process, though. The detailed wash has just gotten started because it’s not just the exterior that needs attention. The interior of your vehicle can get pretty gnarly too. 

From the after-effects of road trips with friends and family to simply having passengers under the age of 10, the interior of your car has a lot to contend with. 

Our professional auto detailers will meticulously remove all debris and contaminants from the interior, leaving no trace of dirt or dust. They vacuum and detail all seats, carpets, mats, the headliner, and the rear cargo area. And if there are any pesky stains, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. We scrub, brush, and shampoo floor carpets and mats to remove any and all stains. And to top it all off, we sanitize and clean all interior panel areas and consoles.

 If that sounds like a lot of cleaning to you, we’d have to agree it certainly is, which is why we’re here to take care of it for you. We want to save you time and energy now while giving you the peace of mind that this investment in your car will also save you money in the future. You can stress less and enjoy the feeling of driving a crisp, clean, factory-fresh car once again.


Speaking of detailed washes being an investment that will save you money in the future, it’s time to touch on one of the most significant reasons that detailed washes are so valuable – longevity. So why go through all of this trouble, you ask? 

Well, if you want to both extend the life span and increase the value of your car, you are in the right place with the right process. Detailed washes, performed on a regular basis, can help prevent damage to your vehicle’s paint caused by contaminants like dirt, bird droppings, and tree sap. Unfortunately, these contaminants can lead to oxidation and discoloration over time, eventually tarnishing the appearance of your car. 

And it’s not just about aesthetics either. When a vehicle’s paint is compromised, water can seep into the steel body underneath and start to cause rust to develop. Once you have rust on your vehicle, a multitude of problems can arise.

 A detailed wash can actually help prevent some of these severe mechanical and structural problems that tend to occur when a car’s paint is no longer keeping it safe and sealed. In addition, dirt and debris can build up in your car’s underbody as well, leading to corrosion and rust over time. A detailed wash can help remove this buildup and protect your car’s critical components from damage. In the long run, this could save you a lot of money on repairs.

Getting a detailed wash is an investment in the appearance and longevity of your vehicle. At Five Points, we take pride in our ability to meet and exceed our client’s expectations and provide the highest level of cleanliness for their vehicles, whatever the make or model.
