Detailing is a customized process because each car is unique. Factors like the car's environment, prior treatment, and type of paint all play a role. Moreover, everyone has distinct preferences and requirements. Therefore, we've compiled some frequently asked questions for your convenience. If your question isn't listed, don't hesitate to get in touch with Lapaire Autospa. We're here to assist you.

We recommend a minimum of 2 times per year. The first session is before winter to protect your vehicle from harsh weather conditions. The second session is after winter to remove road salt and present your car at its best for the delightful spring and summer days.

It's quite simple. Imperfections in the paint, such as swirl marks resembling spider webs, scratches, or dull spots, become noticeable under direct sunlight, at the gas station's lights, or under any other light source. These are signs that your car would greatly benefit from polishing or paint correction.

Washing cleans the car, a task you likely perform weekly. Detailing goes a step further, addressing areas not immediately apparent and providing protection. This protection prevents issues like UV damage, dehydration, and more. Regular detailing also makes routine washing much easier, as dirt has a harder time adhering to the protected surfaces.

Yes and no. The rule of thumb is this: if your fingernail catches on the scratch, it's too deep to be fully removed. However, we can significantly minimize the appearance of such scratches, making them nearly invisible from a distance. Can't feel the scratch? There's a very good chance we can remove it.

No. A clay treatment extracts residual contaminants from the pores of the paint, such as tar, rubber, tree sap, and iron particles. The result is a glass-smooth finish. While it doesn't remove scratches, it prepares the surface for polishing, which can address scratches.

Absolutely. We have specialized tools to tackle stubborn pet hair that regular vacuuming can't remove.

Certainly! We can repair damage to leather and recondition it, restoring its appearance. If the damage is extensive, reupholstering is also an option.

Wheel damage from curbs, road debris, or other sources can be completely restored to a like-new condition. Our process involves chemical stripping, sandblasting, powder coating, clear coat application, and, if necessary, CNC machining.

Many products on the market make unrealistic claims, often leading to disappointment. The surefire way to achieve the perfect shine is through polishing or a combination of sanding and polishing, which addresses the issue at its source rather than masking it.

Dealing with bird droppings promptly is crucial, as they contain ammonia that can damage the paint. Depending on how long the droppings have been on the surface, we can either remove them completely without repainting or minimize their visibility.

Fading is often the result of excessive UV exposure. We can enhance the appearance with one of our paint correction packages.

A common issue, and the answer is a resounding YES! However, there must be sufficient paint on the car for us to work with. We measure the paint thickness to assess the situation accurately.

We can restore old headlights that have become yellowed or dull, returning them to a like-new condition. This not only enhances appearance but also significantly improves nighttime visibility.

We're particularly fond of the deep, brilliant shine these coatings provide. They also offer high surface tension, causing water to bead and roll off the surface. Dirt and dust have a harder time adhering, reducing the need for frequent washing. Additionally, coatings provide robust protection.

A coating shields against UV light, road salt, tar, insects, acid rain, and offers increased resistance to light scratches. It is approximately 30 times thicker than traditional wax.

A coating doesn't create an invulnerable shield, so regular maintenance is still necessary. Proper upkeep ensures years of enjoyment from your coating. When we handle the maintenance, we offer extended warranty on the applied ceramic coating.

Depending on how often you maintain the coating, it can last 3 to 5 years.

PPF offers protection against stone chips and scratches. This thick layer ensures your car stays looking new for an extended period.
