Learning the Importance and Differences of Detailing Your Vehicles
There are obvious visual benefits with detailing your vehicle, but we wanted to go over some of the more important reasons why you should consider detailing your vehicle in addition to the differences of some approaches and levels of protection. The importance of detailing cannot be underestimated and that especially holds true for a hot dry climate like Tucson.
Importance of Interior Auto Detailing
Leather Cleaning & Conditioning
Drying, cracking and fading are common problems associated with improper maintenance of leather surfaces. Cleaning and protecting your leather from harsh UV rays and normal wear and tear is very important to the life of the leather.
We recommend periodic leather cleaning & conditioning to keep your leather seating and other leather finished materials looking and feeling like new.
Carpet & Fabric Extraction

Our high powered extraction units, along with our knowledge, expertise, and safe cleaning agents, enable us to remove dirt, grease, and stains from fabrics and carpet, which helps to prolong the life and appearance of the carpet and upholstery.
Carpet & Fabric Protection
Protects your fabric seats, floor mats and carpet from spills and spots. In most cases the customer can simply wipe spills with a clean, damp cloth.
The protectant coats the carpet fiber and fabric with a long lasting protective coating, which does not alter the look or feel of the carpet or fabric.
Plastic, Vinyl, Rubber Surfaces
Plastic, vinyl and rubber surfaces on the interior and exterior have different finishes depending on the vehicle, and require specific cleaning and protecting processes to ensure their original natural beauty is preserved for years to come.
Importance of Exterior Auto Detailing
Exterior Surface Decontamination
Contaminants such as paint over spray, water spotting, environmental fallout, iron oxide speckles, bird droppings, and tree sap are just a few of the issues most vehicles will encounter at some point in the vehicle’s life.
Vehicles should be routinely assessed for these contaminants, and if needed, removed using chemical and/or mechanical methods.
Paint Surface Defect Removal
Illuminations Mobile Detail utilizes advanced polishing equipment and procedures to eliminate common paint surface defects such as: scuffs, swirls, spider webbing, water spots, scratches and holograms to maximize gloss and clarity and create a finish on your vehicle that no dealership is qualified to perform.
Engine Compartment Detailing
Detailing the engine compartment consists of removal of dirt, grease, and road grime. Removal of these contaminants results in two important aspects.
First, when the parts of your engine are kept clean, it is much easier to detect problems within the engine compartment. Secondly keeping the engine compartment clean helps the engine to run cooler.
Benefits of protecting the glass include: increased visibility, contamination resistance, and simplified maintenance. The most common defect found on glass is water spotting.
Glass protection products create a hydrophobic barrier between the glass surface and the elements, allowing water to sheet or roll from the surface rather than stick to the glass waiting to be baked on by the sun.
