Auto Detailing Freehold NJ
Auto detailing (UK: Car valeting), is the performance of an extremely thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing of an automobile, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality level of detail. Besides improving appearance, detailing helps to preserve resale value of a car.
Today, the United States may have more than 50,000 detailers in operation. Some are franchisees of national auto detailing chains. Many have also performed to prepare a car for car shows that feature the appearance of cars.
Exterior detailing involves cleaning and bringing a shine to the car's paint, chrome trim, windows, wheels, and tires as well as all other visible components on the exterior of a vehicle. Different detailers use different products and techniques to do this. Products include but are not limited to detergents, degreasers, acids, detail clay, waxes, polishes, and a variety of applicators, brushes and special cloths. The three main components of exterior car detailing are cleaning, polishing, and protecting.
Cleaning refers to the removal of all foreign surface particles from exterior surfaces through the use of chemicals, water and heat while washing and claying. A clay bar helps to clean contamination/dirt from the surface of the clearcoat that cannot be removed through washing such as bugs, tar, sap, paint, overspray, etc.
Polishing (Paint Correction) refers to using Electric or Pneumatic machine polishes, which can be Rotary Polishers which have a constant direct spinning action (Direct Drive) or Dual Action Polisher (which uses a Radom Orbital Action plus Rotary Action) this is called forced rotation. Specific polishing pads (Foam or Wool) remove microns of clear coat from a vehicle in order to remove fine scratches, swirls marks, oxidation and other imperfections from a paint surface produced from improper washing techniques, drying techniques and other possible causes.
Protecting involves the application of a protective wax (in liquid or paste form) that prevents foreign matter (contaminants, pollution) from adhering to the surface of the vehicle, including minerals in water, bugs splatter, tar, and dirt. Waxes and sealants provide this barrier.
Interior detailing involves cleaning the passenger compartment as well as the trunk of the car. All of the dash area, panels, windows, seats and carpet are cleaned extensively. Vacuuming is standard, and steam cleaning, liquid cleaners, and brushes may be used to remove stains on upholstery. Some nonporous surfaces may also be polished. Some detailers remove seats and other interior components to provide the most thorough clean possible.
Some detailers may offer engine detailing, in which steam, high pressure water, degreasers and all-purpose cleaners are used to clean under the hood of the car.
Detailing does not include major body work, painting, mechanical or upholstery repair, but can include sanding of body panels to eliminate and/or lessen the visibility of scratches.
Car Wash Freehold NJ
A car wash (also written as "carwash") or auto wash is a facility used to clean the exterior and, in some cases, the interior of motor vehicles.
While there are many types of car washes, most fall into the following categories:
- Hand car wash facilities, where the vehicle is washed by employees.
- Self-service facilities, which are generally coin-operated, where the customer does the washing, including "jet washing".
- In-bay automatics, which consist of an automatic machine that rolls back and forth over a stationary vehicle - often seen at filling stations and stand-alone wash sites.
- Tunnel washes, which use a conveyor to move the vehicle through a series of fixed cleaning mechanisms.
- Chemical car wash, also known as waterless car wash, uses chemicals to wash and polish car surface. Thought to have originated in Australia and claims to be an eco-friendly car wash method.
- Steam car washes use a jet of steam and micro fiber towels, some include detergent injection. Known to have originated from South Korea, steam car washes have been especially popular as a low-investment, eco-friendly car wash solution in Asia, Middle East and Europe thanks to its sanitizing features and mobility.
- Mobile Car Washes, often also serving as mobile detailing systems, which carry plastic water tanks and use pressure washers. Sometimes these systems are mounted on trailers, on trucks, or in vans. Generally these operators also have a generator to run a shop vac., buffers and other tools as well.
Mechanized car washes, especially those with brushes, were once avoided by some meticulous car owners because of the risk of damaging the finish. Paint finishes have improved as have car washing processes, and this perception of vehicle damage is much less today. However, this perception was the motive behind the rise of facilities utilizing "brushless" (cloth) and "touch-free" (high-pressure water) equipment, as well as modern "foam" washing wheels made of closed cell foam.
In today's modern car wash facilities, whether tunnel, in-bay automatic or self-serve, soaps and other cleaning solutions used are designed to loosen and eliminate dirt and grime. This is in contrast to earlier times, when hydrofluoric acid, a hazardous chemical, was commonly used as a cleaning agent in the industry by some operators. There has been a strong move in the industry to shift to safer cleaning solutions. Most car wash facilities are required by law to treat and/or reuse their water and may be required to maintain waste-water discharge permits, in contrast to unregulated facilities or even driveway washing (at one's home), where waste-water can end up in the storm drain and, eventually, in streams, rivers and lakes.
Window Tinting Freehold NJ
There are many types of window tint available in the market for a wide variety of uses from solar heat reduction to UV protection, privacy to safety and security, decorative applications to heat retention.
Heat rejection films are normally applied to the interior of flat glass windows to reduce the amount of infrared, visible light, and ultraviolet (UV) radiationentering windows. Such films are usually dyed or metalized (which can be transparent to visible light) to convert incoming solar radiation to infrared radiation, which is then rejected back through the glass to the exterior." Modern window film technology has created Ceramic Window Film which are non-metallic and do not contain dyes that can result in discoloration. The ceramic and metallic window films usually cost 10–15 percent more than regular window film but can reduce energy transmission by as much as 80 percent." Ceramic window films cost slightly more but provide a substantial increase in blocking UV rays and ability to control heat transfer.
To keep the sun's heat out of the house, a low-emissivity coating should be applied to the outside pane of glazed windows. If the windows are designed to provide heat energy in the winter and keep heat inside the house (typical of cold climates), the low-emissivity coating should be applied to the inside pane of glazed windows. Such films also reduce the amount of visible and ultraviolet radiation entering a window, and are often applied to reduce fading of the contents of a room. Silvered film may also be employed to the same end. Spectrally selective films act by blocking certain wavelengths of the sun's infrared radiation and reject heat without reducing natural light.
Security films are applied to prevent glass from shattering. Typically applied to commercial glass, these films are made of heavy-gauge plastic and are intended to maintain the integrity of glass when subject to heavy impact. The most robust security films are capable of preventing fragmentation and the production of hazardous glass shards from forces such as bomb blasts. Some companies have even experimented with bullet ballistics of multiple layers of security film. Another key application for security window films (safety window films)is on large areas of "flat glass" such as storefront windows, sliding glass doors, and larger windows that are prone to hurricane damage. These security films, if applied properly, can also provide protection for vehicles. These security films are often tinted and can be up to 400 micrometers (µm) thick, compared to less than 50 µm for ordinary tint films. If anchored correctly, they can also provide protection for architectural glazing in the event of an explosion. A layer of film (of 100 µm thickness or greater) can prevent the ejection of spall when a projectile impacts on its surface, creating small dagger-like shards of glass that can cause injury.
Switchable films can be switched from opaque to clear by a safe voltage under 36V AC. In its opaque state, it can be perfectly used as a projection screen that is viewable from both sides. 3G switchable film also has UV (100%) and IR (94%) blocking functions and security function.
Graphic design films are generally colored vinyl or frosted. Frosted finish films closely resemble sandblasted or acid-etched glass, while vinyl films are available in a range of colors. Both types of films are commonly used in commercial applications.
Privacy films reduce visibility through the glass. Privacy film for flat-glass commercial and residential applications may be silvered, offering an unimpeded view from the low-light side but virtually no view from the high-light side. It may also be frosted, rendering the window translucent but not transparent. Privacy films for automobiles are available in gradients of darkness, with the darker tints commonly known as "limo tint."
Correctly-applied mirror film can create one-way mirrors.
Other benefits include protection for passengers in the rear, protection from UV rays (which have some harmful effects), cooling for pets, greater privacy, reduced chance of theft (because valuables are less visible), reduced glare and reflection on liquid crystal display (LCD) screens, and protection for those who have conditions involving photosensitivity or skin sensitivity, such as lupus (SLE). Window film is also considered more effective and practical than stick-on blinds.

Residential Window Tinting Freehold NJ
To understand the causes of fading, one needs to know a little about the makeup of sunlight.
Sunlight is basically mode up of three elements,
- Visible light — the part which enables us to see
- Infrared light — the part which we feel as heat
- Ultraviolet light — we cannot feel it or see it, but it is the main factor in causing fabrics, furniture and works of art to fade.
Fading is a result of these three "sunlight" factors and, to a lesser degree... indoor artificial lighting, humidity and poor dye anchorage play a role as well
Wood: Natural wood finishes ore much more stable than stains or finishes which alter the color of the original wood. And, wood may actually darken with prolonged exposure to UV rather than fade to a lighter color.
Fabrics: Results differ depending upon fiber type, dye color and stability and/or pattern printing techniques. Fabric cost has no bearing on the degree of fade damage and expensive fabrics may be as vulnerable to fading as less expensive fabrics.
Artwork: From photographs to paintings, tapestries to wood sculptures, certain media will fade more rapidly than other works of art. A watercolor, for example, is far more vulnerable than an oil pointing. A tapestry of bright bold colors may deteriorate more rapidly than a solid wall hanging. To be sole, never place art in direct sunlight.
Occupants: The sun’s harmful UV rays damage more than furniture and fabrics, that is why The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends the use of Panorama® Window Film as a device for the protection of skin.
Fade protection from the sun. Over time, the rays of the sun fade whatever is in their path. But professionally installed Panorama Window Film blocks out 99.9% of the damaging ultraviolet rays that ordinary windows allow in. That means that draperies, wood furniture, upholstery and carpeting will last longer.

Graphics Freehold NJ
Graphics (from Greek γραφικός graphikos) are visual presentations on some surface, such as a wall, canvas, screen, paper, or stone to brand, inform, illustrate, or entertain. Graphics word is derived from the word graph. A graph has x and y axis. Same way something which is created in digital word is seen on a digital screen, this screen also has x and y axis. So the output on any digital device is termed as graphics. In other words an image that is generated by a computer called graphics. The pictorial representation and manipulation of data, as used in computer-aided design and manufacture, in typesetting and the graphic arts, and in educational and recreational programs.
Examples are photographs, drawings, Line Art, graphs, diagrams, typography, numbers, symbols, geometric designs, maps, engineering drawings, or other images. Graphics often combine text,illustration, and color. Graphic design may consist of the deliberate selection, creation, or arrangement of typography alone, as in a brochure, flier, poster, web site, or book without any other element. Clarity or effective communication may be the objective, association with other cultural elements may be sought, or merely, the creation of a distinctive style.
Graphics can be functional or artistic. The latter can be a recorded version, such as a photograph, or an interpretation by a scientist to highlight essential features, or an artist, in which case the distinction with imaginary graphics may become blurred.

Dent Removal Freehold NJ
Paintless dent repair (PDR), also known as "paintless dent removal", is a collection of techniques for removing minor dents and dings from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using PDR; however, usually if there is paint damage, PDR may be unsuitable.
The most common practical use for PDR is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor body creases, and minor bumper indentations. The techniques can also be applied to help prepare the damaged panel for paint. Such applications are referred to as "push to paint", or "push for paint".
Limiting factors for a successful repair using PDR include the flexibility of the paint, and the amount the metal has been stretched by the damage incurred. Generally, the more shallow the dent, the greater the chance of paintless dent repair being a suitable option. Even dents with a several-inch diameter can be repairable with this method, as long as the dent is shallow and uncreased. Hence, often extremely sharp dents and creases may not be repairable - at least not without painting afterwards, although a very skilled master tech may surprise one with what he can get out.
Dent Repair Freehold NJ
The most common methods of paintless dent repair utilize metal rods and body picks to push the dents out from the under side of the body panel. Additionally, glue and a specially designed tab may be used from the outside of the panel to pull the dents out. In either case, fine-tuning of the repair often involves "tapping" down the repair to remove small high spot (master techs will not need to tap), or shrink the metal, making the surface flat. Paintless Dent Repair may be used on both aluminum and steel panels. If a technician pushes too hard when creating these high spots, the paint will split and crack and the paint is ruined which means it will need to be touched up or the panel will now need to be painted. Master techs will not crack or chip your paint 99% of the time, although if the paint is not in good condition or the metal is cold it can crack and even the very best tech can not stop this from happening. When damage is too great but it's still worth it to insurance company or tech they will do something called "push to paint", which involves them pushing it to be flat (paint almost always cracks in this situation) but this is okay because the body shop is going to repaint those panels anyway -this saves time and money. Quality technicians can use these high spots, (NOTE: That with a quality tech there should be no high spots that are very visble) that are barely visible, to match the texture of the paint.
Fluorescent lighting, or in some cases a reflection board, is used to see the shadows created by the deformation of the dent. This is an important aspect of the repair process. Without a Paintless Dent Repair board or reflector board, the fine detail of the process is unseen, and technicians cannot locate their tools specifically and cannot remove the damage accurately. Moving the tool under the panel allows the rod to be seen. While this is true with beginning techs a true master tech does not need much to know where his or her tool is. Most techs who have been in the business for a few years do not use a reflector board. The process of Paintless Dent Repair requires a technician to specifically push exact locations of metal to a precise height, which can only be witnessed with use of a PDR reading instrument, such as a Paintless Dent Repair reflector board or Paintless Dent Repair light.
Paintless dent removal takes years to learn; it is more of an art than a specific set of skills. The ability to successfully remove dents and dings is learned through trial and error with some common know how. An untrained individual can actually damage a dent if attempting a repair without the correct skills and knowledge. Paintless dent removal technicians can be located throughout the country by searching for their services online, or through the non-profit Trade organization, www.NAPDRT.org
Glass Coating Freehold NJ
A window to the world. Few building materials captivate the imagination like glass.

Clear Bra Freehold NJ
3M Paint Protection Clear Bra is a nearly invisible hassle free substitute for those ugly black leather car bras. You have to look close and hard to spot this stuff. Unlike vinyl car bras it is car wash safe and offers protection from rock chips, scratches, insects and other road debris. Generally it is installed on the leading edge of a vehicles hood, fenders, mirrors and the bumper for maximum protection.
Traditional fabric auto bra was the best way available at the time to protect large open areas of painted surfaces from the ravages of stone chips until the modern day auto clear bra. Despite the fact these mechanically attached non aerodynamic auto bra's protected againststone chips the auto bra was a maintenance hassle. If the auto bra was not regularly cleaned, tightened and adjusted it would replace damage from stone chips with wide spread paint scratches from grit trapped between the auto bra and the paint, not to mention areas that the paint was worn to bare metal where the auto bra rubbed with violent vibration and pressure.
With the invention of clear car bra films derived from the aerospace industry to protect jet aircraft radome's (nose cones), leading edges of helicopter rotor blades, wing tip and landing gear light protection there was no other large area alternative to the fabric auto bra.
Auto clear bra paint protection film has clearly brought the consumer a product that protects large areas of your vehicle without the self inflicted risk of paint damage from fabric auto bra's.
New car manufacturers have been using clear car bra films since originally introduced to them by the 3M company back in the late 1980's to protect known problem areas like wheel flairs, jeep door sils, VW Jetta wagon rear bumper decks and many other paint vulnerable areas.
We here at ClearMask started the auto clear bra revolution back in 1993 with some of the first auto clear bra paint protection film precut kits. Our clear bra kits remain the best designs in the industry because we use our experience and technological understanding of the unique auto clear bra paint protection films to create clear bra film kits that allow the do it yourself applicator to achieve satisfactory results.
Lease Return Freehold NJ
Vehicle leasing is the leasing (or the use of) a motor vehicle for a fixed period of time. It is commonly offered by dealers as an alternative to vehicle purchase but is widely used by businesses as a method of acquiring (or having the use of) vehicles for business, without the usually needed cash outlay. The key difference in a lease is that after the primary term (usually 2,3 or 4 years) the vehicle has to be returned to the leasing company for disposal.
Vehicle Leasing offers advantages to both buyers and sellers. For the buyer, lease payments will usually be lower than payments on a car loan would be, and qualification is often easier. Some consumers may prefer leasing as it allows them to simply return a car and select a new model when the lease expires, allowing a consumer to drive a new vehicle every few years without the responsibility of selling the old vehicle. A lessee does not have to worry about the future value of the vehicle, while a vehicle owner does.
For the seller, leasing generates income from a vehicle the seller still owns and will be able to lease again or sell through vehicle remarketing once the original (or primary) lease has expired. As consumers will typically use a leased vehicle for a shorter period of time than one they buy outright, leasing may generate repeat customers more quickly, which may fit into various aspects of a dealer's business model.
Lease agreements typically stipulate an early termination fee and limit the number of miles a lessee can drive (for passenger cars, a common number is 10,000 miles per annum though the amount can be stipulated by the customer and can be 12,000 to 15,000 miles per year). If the mileage allowance is exceeded, fees may apply. Dealers will typically allow a lessee to negotiate a higher mileage allowance, for a higher lease payment. Lease agreements usually specify how much wear on the vehicle is allowable, and the lessee may face a fee if that amount of wear has been exceeded. A lease with maintenance (commonly known in the UK as Contract Hire) can include all vehicle running costs excluding fuel and insurance.
The actual lease payments are calculated in a very similar way to loan payments, but instead of an APR, the company uses something called the money factor.
At the end of a lease's term, the lessee must either return the vehicle to or buy it from the owner. The end of lease price is usually agreed upon when the lease is signed.

Car Waxing Freehold NJ
Cleaning and waxing are the most basic maintenance tasks for a car owner. But doing it right—without hazy paint, dull headlights and crud in the cracks—takes expertise. Make the finish on the exterior and interior last as long as the mechanicals with these pro cleaning tips.
The median age of cars on the road is creeping up. But thanks to industry-wide improvements in quality, cars are more reliable than they were only a decade ago. One hundred thousand miles was the watershed number that labeled a car as "old" back in the day. Now, it's not uncommon for a vehicle to last twice that many miles before something too expensive to fix forces it into the scrap yard. That's the good news. Here's the bad news: The paint, body and interior have twice as much time marinating in the elements to lose that factory-fresh patina and start looking like Jed Clampett's pickup. So how does a vehicle's condition affect its market price? We looked up the trade-in value of a 2000 Honda Accord with 100,000 miles at edmunds.com. The site says that in excellent condition, it's worth just about five grand in trade. Downgrade that rating to average and you'll lose over $2000.
Some people may see a wax job as an extra for their car, something you do on special occasions to provide a little extra shine. But waxing your car is actually something that should be done on a regular basis. Too often car owners provide regular maintenance on the engine of their vehicle and ignore the exterior altogether, save for a few trips through the gas station car wash. The exterior of your car needs regular care as well. While neglecting the paint job may not lead to mechanical performance issues, it will result in a lower resale value, just like if you never changed your oil or got a tune up. Regular exterior maintenance will keep your car looking new for years after purchase.
And it's not just a cosmetic benefit either, regular waxing helps to protect the paint job and clear coat on your car by preserving oils in the paint that help to prevent oxidation. This is when the oxygen molecules in the air react with, and in this case burn up, the free radicals in the paint. The result is a dulled finish, and waxing can help to prevent this ugly process. Regular waxing also protects the paint from the daily wear and tear our cars get from being exposed to the outside world. Bird droppings, wind, rain, hail, tree sap, smog, ultraviolet rays from the sun -- you name it. There are a host of threats to your car's shiny finish.
As for how often you should wax your car, you'll get a different answer depending on who you ask. Wax manufacturers recommend that you apply a new coat every 45 days or so. Some newer synthetic waxes claim to provide protection for up to one year. It also depends on your preference and available time and money. If you want a showroom look all the time and have the resources, you may want to get a wax job once a month. Cars parked in a garage can go longer without a wax as those exposed to the elements.
Car Upholstery Repair Freehold NJ
The first step in car upholstery repair is to know the type of fabric that you are going to be working with. Car seats generally come in vinyl, woven fabric blends, and leather. The type of repair that needs to be done will be determined by the fabric the seat is made from. Next, determine the type of problem the upholstery has. Fixing a cigarette burn in the fabric is different from fixing a rip or a tear. Knowing which type of issue that you are dealing with will help focus on the specific problem and the possible solutions.
Depending on the extent of the damage to your upholstery, it might be necessary to use a professional for the repair. Many repair shops offer this type of service. Having your upholstery repaired by a professional can be quite expensive, especially if the damage to the upholstery is severe. The first step should be to try to repair the damage yourself and if this is not possible, take the car to a professional to have the service completed.
When it comes to car upholstery repair, small blemishes can easily be fixed by simply sewing them up. Using a professional repair service is also an option. However, if the damage to the upholstery is great, it is likely that a replacement will be necessary.
Car Upholstery Cleaning Freehold NJ
The interior of your car takes a lot of abuse. Unlike the inside of your home, which has many times more square footage, the inside of your car gets repeated, concentrated traffic. Each time you get in your car, you drag in more dirt. Each time you eat or drink in your car, you add a few more crumbs and spills. In fact, just sitting in your car, you drop hair, dead skin, makeup and other contaminants. All of this dirt and junk adds up very fast.
We offer a selection of interior care products as unique as your car. Each is designed to care for interior components quickly and easily. All of our interior products leave a natural, "factory-look" finish and a fresh scent.
How’s your carpet and upholstery holding up to the daily grind? Is it starting to show signs of hundreds of entries and exits, and evidence of being trampled upon again and again? It’s no wonder that our upholstery and carpet shows the signs of aging, usually before other parts of the car. By nature, this is the most vulnerable of the vehicle’s surfaces, and yet it endures the most contact and friction, next to the tires. Even the most careful, meticulous car owner cannot avoid eventual wear and tear on the interior fibers.
I find that keeping up with the interior cloth and carpet is personally one of my least favorite chores in detailing. All that scrubbing …but what can you do? Well, you can make your life easier by having the right tools for the job and products that really work. Stain repellants are a must to guard against the inevitable future spill. When it happens, you’re ready and clean up will be a fraction of the work it would be otherwise.
