Lets have a look at some differences in paint defects and how they are corrected



 Swirl Marks and Spider Webs


Swirl marks are dips and valley on the surface of a vehicles paint that appear to be holograms when you look at the finish in direct sunlight. These marks are caused by the misuse of products and tools in the buffing process by an inexperienced auto detailer.

This defect can be removed with the proper techniques by an experienced professional detailer like Curbside Mobile Detailing.

Spider webs are super fine straight line scratches on the surface of a vehicles paint that appear to form a spider web like pattern when viewed in direct sunlight. These marks are so common that they even appear on a brand new vehicle on a showroom floor. Spider webs are caused by washing, drying or wiping the surface of a vehicle with a dry, dirty, or incorrect material cloth or towel.

This defect can be removed with the proper techniques by an experienced professional auto detailer like Curbside Mobile Detailing.

 Paint Contamination

Paint Contamination is a very common issue with vehicles. The most common contaminate is brake rust and industrial fall out.

Contamination can be felt by rubbing your hand over the vehicles finish. If it is not smooth as glass it contains contaminates. Most people think the rough finish can be solved by waxing. The truth is waxing only seals in these contaminates.

Contamination is most noticeable on white vehicles (however it occurs on all colors of vehicles) These little brown or gold speckles are the beginning of major problems. Under a magnifying glass you can see these little metal partials embedded into the surface of the paint where they then begin to rust which creates a pin hole for water to penetrate under the paint. The most common end result is oxidation and or a bubble in the paint that flakes off to reveal a large rust spot.



The best way to remove this contamination is with a Clay Bar Treatment. Just like the name, a bar of detailers clay and lubricant is used to gently rub over the surface of the vehicle. This longtime secret of professional detailers is becoming more and more known to the average person and weekend warrior. The clay picks up these contaminates leaving your vehicles surface on the right path to preservation and smooth as glass.

This treatment is a must and is included in our Maintenance Detail, Full Detail, Exterior and Paint correction package, and performed at your location by Curbside Mobile Detailing.

Oxidation is a natural breakdown of materials, in this case, paint and clear coat. Preventing this from happening is one of the sole purposes of professional detailers.

This condition is a result of everything listed above, poor maintenance and lack of protection on the vehicles finish. Once your vehicles finish has reached this stage, there is little left to do but repaint the surface. And trust me, that's no fun especially in the wallet.

Curbside Mobile Detailing can recommend a few reputable local body shops that can take care of this issue, but it is best to have your vehicle detailed and protected on a regular basis to prevent this from happening. Your factory finish was designed specifically for your vehicle. When taken care of properly, no product on the market will out last your factory finish.

Together as a team, we can work together to make your factory finish last forever and looking great.
