Truck Maintenance: Mobile Car Detailing in San Diego

August 10, 2012

San Diego Mobile Truck Wash

Mobile Car Detailing in San Diego – Everyone knows that trucks and Jeeps are vehicles that take a bigger beating than most other types of vehicle on the road. So, it is crucial that the maintenance for these two types of vehicles be diligent and persistent.

The normal maintenance is to always keep the basic oil changes and tune ups. Every car owner follows those basic steps to keep a nice engine running smooth. Cleaning and detailing are also very important for vehicles to keep the paint job from fading or just getting scratched.

Now, trucks and Jeeps are an exemption to having maintenance done. Trucks and Jeeps are always in dirtier areas and work harder than most other cars. That means that detailing and cleaning should happen more often to keep the paint job immaculate. Heavy duty truck maintenance must also consist of keeping the moving parts greased up since they work harder than most cars. The same goes for Jeeps.

This is why washing tires and wheels on trucks and Jeeps periodically can help keep the moving parts lasting longer. It also keeps them from squeaking when driving in the streets.


Also, truck maintenance requires that all fluids for the power steering wheel, rear differential, and transmission oil be change a bit earlier than usual, especially when the truck or Jeep is getting a bit old. Remember, trucks and Jeeps work a little harder than most cars! That is if they are used like a truck or Jeep should be used.

It is also very wise to use additives for the engine to give it boost. Carburetor cleaners are also a huge plus, because trucks and Jeeps drive on dirt roads more than the regular vehicle.

As for bumpers, they just get beat up period! Like I said, if trucks and Jeeps are used the way they were designed to be used, the bumpers will get beat up. One way to go, is to add heavy duty ones for your Jeep or truck. Heavy grills can protect your truck and Jeep a lot better than just a regular bumper.

If you have a truck or a Jeep and drive them like a regular car, then the maintenance on them is the same as any other car. It is always wise to follow the vehicle’s manual!

In other words, if you have a truck and take it to work and make the vehicle work with heavy loads or if you have a Jeep and go four-wheeling with it in treacherous terrains, then follow the maintenance tips above. If you treat them like just regular cars, then the basic maintenance procedures should apply rather well.

You can clean your own alloy wheels… and here is how! (Mobile Car Detailing)

August 7, 2012


Cleaning Your Alloy Wheels – The Lazy Way

It’s sunny outside and you want to pull the car covers off your Jeep and cruise around town looking good in your stylish ride.  Only, in order to look good in your stylish ride, the Jeep has to be clean.  Even if you baby your Jeep by detailing it yourself every other week, during the summer the wheels get dirty faster because there is no regular rain to wash grease and debris off the road.  There is a way to keep your Jeep wheels clean in between your overall mobile car detailing schedule.  Don’t worry, this method does not involve spending more money at the local car detailer nor does it include spending more cash on speciality cleaning products at your local Jeep parts store. Using simple household items you can keep grease, debris and brake dust build up off your wheels in between detailing.


You will need some “tools”.  

    • A blowdryer and an extension cord so the blowdryer will reach your car.
    • Depending on how hot it gets where you live you may not even need the blowdryer.
  • A baby powder dispenser in which the talcum has been replaced by baking soda.
  • Dishwasher gel type detergent which promises spot free drying.
  • A hose
  • A rag

 Step 1 – Heat Your Wheels
Grease is the biggest obstacle between you and clean wheels.  As you know from cleaning your kitchen or your clothing, grease that has hardened is more difficult to remove than grease that has been made more viscous by increased temperature.  So take your blowdryer around to each wheel and with it on its highest setting, blow hot air on each wheel for two or three minutes.  Again, if you live in a city like Sacramento or Phoenix where the summer temperatures regularly reach over 85 degrees fahrenheit and you can see wavy plumes of heat rising off the asphalt, the blowdryer step may be wholly unnecessary.

Step 2 – Apply An Absorbent
Baking soda absorbs grease and also breaks down grease.  While each individual wheel is warm blow a thick layer of baking soda onto the wheel using the baby powder dispenser.  Let the baking soda sit on the wheel for ten minutes.

Step 3 – Rinse
Wash the baking soda off with a hose and a lot of the grease and debris will come off with it.

Step 4 – Apply Detergent
With the rag apply the dishwasher detergent gel to your wheel.  Let it sit for five minutes.  If the detergent contains bleach do not let it sit for more than five minutes.  If it does not contain bleach you can let the detergent sit until it dries (though in Phoenix or Sacramento during the summer that might take fewer than five minutes).  The same chemical agents that dislodge baked on food from the casserole dish are going to dislodge dirt, brake dust, debris and grease from your wheels.  And the same chemical agents that leave your utensils spot free are going to leave your wheels shiny as well.

Step 5 – Rinse Again
Wash the dishwasher detergent off with your hose.

If during the washing off process you wind up with grease stains on your driveway, cover them with baking powder for an hour.  Then scrub them with a hard bristled brush and rinse them away.  If the stains remain, smear them with the dishwasher detergent and let it sit on them for a few hours then hose off the driveway again.

La Jolla Mobile Auto Detailing… No better place in the World to clean a car!

July 24, 2012

Car Detailing in La Jolla on this Mercedes S-ClassLa Jolla is a nice town to cruise through, especially during the summer. SoCal’s  knows the 92037 zip code well, because it serves the area on a regular basis. Next week we’re there to service a law firm client. That’s what we like about mobile auto detailing; you never know what will pop up. Alex is a partner at the law firm and he was our first client there. But after we detailed his car a couple of times, other members of the firm asked us to do theirs, as well. The Mercedes Benz S-Class pictured above, belongs to Alex. David and Linda, other members of the law firm saw the car above after we had finished detailing it and asked if we could do the same thing to their automobiles, of course we can! Now we are detailing eleven cars at one law firm every other week, and not all of them belong to lawyers. It seems some of the staff and other tenants in the building were jealous and wanted the same treatment. Discrimination is against the law so we are an equal opportunity auto detail company and ALL CARS are treated as equals. Lol

Our lawyer friend Linda gave us a wonderful compliment when she said “You guys mix beauty with service very well”. Thanks Linda.
