Throughout your car ownership, the importance of keeping it clean at all times never loses its meaning, no matter what season it is or how long the automobile has been in your care. 

Regardless of whether you drive a five-litre, 600-horsepower speed machine or a simple minivan, its cleanliness is one that may seem small at first but goes an especially long way. For those living in Calgary (and its surrounding areas, getting a regular clean is essential because of all the weather conditions that come out and about while taking a toll on your car.

While you think that a weekly car wash is enough to keep your wheels clean, the type of effort alone isn’t what that we’re trying to build up to; we’re talking about getting your car detailed. 

What is car detailing?

Technically speaking, this job is described as a car cleaning service that is more extensive and meticulous when compared to a standard wash. Instead of working on the outside, scrubbing it with a sponge, and washing it down with water, this treatment covers more tasks and handles the exterior and interior cleaning needs of a car.  

When it comes to understanding how this treatment works, let’s work with an example of a day of pampering yourself.

Let’s say you have a whole day to yourself after a few intense months spent working hard, grinding it all out, and making as much money as possible. After some time, you’ll need some self-care so that you can rejuvenate and get back to looking and feeling your best – the same principle applies to your vehicle.

Once you’ve realized that your car has overdue pampering session, you won’t merely settle for a simple car wash. You’ll go for a session that goes the extra mile with added services like waxing, vacuuming, and clay treatments to bring your car back to look like new.

Why is it called car detailing?

The “detailing” part of the name comes from the fact that the whole treatment process is very detail-intensive in nature to the point where not a single inch on the car is left untouched. Sometimes, the meticulousness of the treatment can go beyond the work alone and even carry into other bits and pieces of the process that a service provider can refine or improve. Drip Detailing, for instance, is intensive to the point that we only use eco-friendly products in each process of a job and include quality products with desirable track records in the list of supplies we clean out clients’ cars with!

How often should you get your car detailed?

Generally, the answer can vary depending on how particular you are about the cleanliness of your car and how flexible or accommodating your budget is.

The rule of thumb, however, dictates that you should get your car detailed four times a year as Calgary’s weather conditions can be quite unforgiving. If you change cars regularly, however, then you may want to run a car detailing session more often to ensure that your ride’s market value stays as high as ever!


As unfamiliar as it may be to some car owners, car detailing is a necessity for anyone who cares about how their car looks and feels every kilometre of the way.
