This is where you will find most answers. If there should still be any questions left, don't hesitate to contact us.
What is car detailing?

The term 'car detailing' encompasses the process of thorough cleaning, restoration (such as paint correction / polishing) and finishing of a vehicle, with the aim of returning it to absolute showroom condition. All nooks and crannies are literally tackled down to the last detail. Both the interior and the exterior can be treated.

Traditional car cleaning companies and car washes aim to polish as many cars as possible in as little time as possible. While these services generally perform simple tasks, they often cause paint damage, wax scratches and other imperfections from improper washing techniques.

Unlike these companies, we put quality over quantity. At Cartsitic Detailing Haus we repair this damage and strive for perfection. We achieve the very best results by using the best materials, products and techniques

What are swirls / swirl marks?

Swirls or swirl marks are simply super fine scratches in the paint. They are usually caused by wiping the car with a dry towel (usually when it is dusty) or by improper washing techniques. Swirls are often most noticeable on black or dark cars, this is because the sides of the scratches reflect light.

Can a clar bar / Clay Treatment remove scratches?

A surface treatment with a clay bar only removes excess dirt (such as tree sap / resin and other contaminants) from the paintwork that cannot be removed by washing the car. A clay treatment therefore does not remove scratches.

What is a ceramic coating and how long will it last?

Ceramic coating, also called glass coating, forms an extra hard top layer over the existing paint layer of the car. This layer adheres to the surface and not only keeps your car clean and shiny for longer, but is also more scratch-resistant and extremely water and dirt-repellent.

The average lifespan of a coating has a lifespan of up to 3 years (depending on the package), much longer than a traditional wax! However, this lifespan varies from car to car. Some factors that can affect the lifespan:

  • How and how often is the car washed?
  • Is the car driven every day?
  • Is the car always outside or in a garage?
