$50 OFF Carpet Shampoo Detail Package
Promotion Valid thru January 31, 2023
Service #4: OLS Custom Created Detail Package, a 6 to 8 hour, 30 Step, Carpet Shampoo Detail Package!
Step #1: Come to your home, or work, on time with a great ready-to-work attitude to make your vehicle look new!
I come to YOUR HOME or WORK with 250 gallons of water, a professional grade pressure washer, custom commercial chemicals, a high voltage generator for power, AND deliver THE BEST DETAIL to you and your vehicle could ever DREAM of! I enjoy finding a nice shady spot while l detail your car in any parking lot or any home driveway! MOST IMPORTANTLY, I show up ON-TIME with a GREAT, READY-TO-WORK, ATTITUDE to make sure your car WILL LOOK NEW AGAIN!! With 9 years AND over 9,000+ detailed vehicle’s of experience, I KNOW you will be as happy as my other 5 STAR RATED RETURNING CLIENTS, after your very own detail!
Step #2: Walk-around vehicle with you to make sure all your needs will be met: 10 Minutes
A small but important step! This is where you and I take some time to walk around the vehicle so you can show me all the dingy spots that YOU have noticed, and want to make sure get to perfection. Normally, there are about 2 interior spots and 3 exterior spots that a client wants to make sure gets cleaned on their vehicle. Of course, I am here to do the entire detail but these specific spots are what the clients are basing a large portion of their satisfaction of the detail off of. Imagine the spot in, or on, your car that you are sooo tired of seeing forever, and this spot is sure to come up in our conversation, and I will make sure that I take extra time on these spots to ensure your satisfaction!
Step #3: Before Pictures: 10 Minutes
Before pictures are a great way to notate any damages to the vehicle, but the pictures are more to be able to show the client later on how dirty something was and be able to compare it to the cleanliness that it has reached now!
Step #4: Shampoo Floormats on Custom Floormat Station: 5 Minutes
My custom floormat station that was designed & custom built by me at OLS, is literally ONE of kind! It is easy to see how this is the BEST DETAIL ANYWHERE! It is the only way to hold a floormat vertical, so that it may be perfectly cleaned with 3,500psi of high pressured water. Once the mats are sprayed, I can pull the mat out from the van, to allow the floormat to hang perfectly like an old fashion clothes line & dry within about an hour period! If your mats are being sprayed on the ground, they are not clean & they will leave a smell & possibly grow mold from not being dry.
Step #5: Degrease & Pressure Wash Door jambs, Trunk jambs, & Gas cap: 5 Minutes
Degreasing the worst parts of the car before starting the exterior wash is the best way to ensure a great detail! Most D.I.Yers, and professionals, do not actually degrease their door jambs, gas cap, or trunk jambs! BUT, BE CAREFUL DIYers, spraying the degreaser or pressure washer in this step incorrectly could mean permanent damage to the vehicle!! I use what I call, “Directional Spraying” with my pressure washer with a special tip to get these areas the cleanest!!
Step #6: Degrease Rims, Tires, & Fender-wells: 10 Minutes
The absolute best tire degrease that will leave the face of the rim, the inside dish of the rim, brake caliper, & fender well free of all brake dust! The pictures do not really do the inside rims justice of how actually clean they are in person. This is also with the use of a high definition Nikon D90 Camera. The rims & tires look new & will get your white walls & letters, white again!! The tire degreaser brand is OLS Part B – Fleet & Tire Degreaser. The tire Dressing of choice is OLS Part D1 & Part D2 50%-50% Mix – Tire Dressing. (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)
Step #7: 3 Steps in 1 – Degrease, Spray-Wax, & Blow-out to dry the engine, engine bay, & under hood
I know there is a lot of different opinions on how I, should I, Is it safe, AND what are the risks with degreasing an engine? I have personally cleaned over 100 engine bays & with ZERO (0) ONLINE or call COMPLAINTS! Two common concerns are, should I use the water hose or pressure washer? A water hose will put too much water, too quickly, drowning the engine & causing it to lock up. The issue with using the pressure washer? By using the wrong tip or nozzle, you could over pressurize sensitive areas in the engine bay. The last concern most people face too late is not being able to remove the degreaser & oil efficiently enough without drowning the engine!! I avoid this by putting a layer of Spray Wax – Part C on the engine & bay, after degreasing. Rinsing the beaded-up Spray Wax water off will allow for quick drying times, while efficiently getting the oil, dirt, & grime off. I follow the wax up with air blow-out to make sure all the water is extracted! I have washed Audi’s, Mercedes, Honda’s, F-150s, classic muscle cars, sports cars, RV motors, Semi motors, boat motors, & every type of motor before!!!

Step #7: Super Sudsy Foam Cannon Brush Wash: 40 Minutes
A very soft bristle brush that I have replaced many times over the last 9 years of use. I have used this brush on high end Porsche’s & Range Rover’s to a daily driver Honda Civic! I useit weekly on my own 2018 vehicle & 2005 Harley-Davidson Black & Chrome Heritage Softail. My brush will not scratch or leave any scratches on your finish. For soap, I use our very own OLS Part A – Car & House Cleaner, with built-in corrosion inhibitors to make sure your car or home paint never dulls! (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)
Step #8: First Exterior Spray Wax Rinse
A layer of spray wax is foamed onto the vehicle. This is put on the windows, paint, rims, & everywhere to neutralize the Part A & Part B chemicals. It will leave a nice shine & make water bead up and fall off the vehicle’s exterior surfaces! This helps me dry the vehicle quickly & efficient and to not leave water marks on your vehicle. The Spray is OLS Part C – Spray Wax. (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)
Step #9: Safe & Final Exterior Paint Rinse with Pressure Washer: 5 Minutes
A final step of our Spray Wax OLS Part C – Spray Wax is with filtered water, guaranteed not to leave any chemical/water spots on your precious paint! The step all other professional places are missing is our spray wax before our final rinse, without the spray wax it will allow water to harden into a spot on your paint! (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)
Step #10: Extra-Extra Thick Coat of Tire Dressing: 2 Minutes
We have a very special mix of tire dressing that covers the entire tire!! It does NOT leave tiny beads where the dressing did not land, It is important to apply the tire dressing now so if over spray lands on the paint, it will still be wet! It is also as important to blow-dry the rim and dressing for the highest shine and prevent sling later! (Click any picture for high resolution)
Step #11: Exterior Shammy Paint Dry: 10 Minutes
It may not seem like much but after a nice exterior wash & exterior spray wax, a crucial part to a good detail is drying! Immediately upon rinsing the spray wax we dress the tires with dressing, hardly ever, but if there is overspray on the paint, we get it off now! The dressing will not hurt your paint but no need for leaving it on there either. (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)!
Step #12: Micro-fiber Dry Paint & Rims while blowing compressed air from a Craftsman® Pancake: 15 Minutes
Blowing out all of the mirrors, door handles, trim mouldings, & windows with compressed air takes extra time but is totally worth it! For some odd reason, blowing the lug nuts, center cap, and our special tire dressing dry on the rubber tires, makes the rims & tires even SHINIER THAN EVER!! A step added-on Christmas week of 2021!!! (Click any picture for extremely high resolution)
Step #13: Second Paint Spray Wax & Final Dry: 15 Minutes
You will not believe the shine on your vehicle!!! While this is a great final spray wax step to a Deluxe Detail, this is just a Spray Wax! If you have not had a Ceramic Wax put on in the last 12 months, then you should check out our Ceramic Wax Detail Package! It include all the steps of the Deluxe Detail Package you’re viewing but includes a Sap Removal step to remove last years contaminates and a Ceramic Wax to protect the paint over the next year! This Spray Wax will make your vehicle shine and give you about 1 month of protection on your vehicle’s clear-coat!
WE ARE FINALLY STARTING ON THE INTERIOR!!
Step #14: Blow-out & Micro-fiber Door jambs, Trunk jambs, & Black-rubber seals
Blow-0ut all the water in the door jambs & trunk/cargo jambs while wiping with a micro-fiber towel. This will extract all the water from the jambs and leave them with a nice shine too!!
Step #15: Blow-out & Tiny-Brush Door panels, Dash, Seats, Cup-Holders, & Center Console: 30 Minutes
Blow-out and tiny brush loose all the dust from its surfaces. I blow-out & brush all the cup holders, a/c vents, center console, gauge cluster, steering wheel, dash, seats, floorboards, under the seats, & trunk/cargo area.
Step #16: First Vacuum on Cup-holders, Seats, Floorboard, Under-seats, & Trunk/Cargo: 45 Minutes
After all the dust has been blown-out and brushed loose from its surfaces, I start my first round of vacuuming. I do carry the brushes with me to do any additional brushing while I vacuum. I vacuum all the cup holders, a/c vents, center console, gauge cluster, steering column, dash, seats, floorboards, under the seats, trunk/cargo area. Getting as much dirt as you can out will help later in the shampooing process!
Step #17: Interior Shampoo with Spin Brush and other Small Brushes: 2 Hours
No matter the color interior, the best part about this spin brush is it does not matter how wet you get the seat, the spin brush will dry it while cleaning it! The spin brush runs between 1,000 and 2,000 rounds per minute! With our special cleaner and it’s suction power coming from its rotation, it leaves the fabric dry, free of its stains, & ready for protection!!
Step #18: Second Interior & Trunk Vacuum: 35 Minutes
After our spin brush has extracted all the stains and small pieces of dirt from the vehicle, the vehicle needs a second vacuuming! This also makes sure all the water is extracted from the seats and also helps see if there are any stains left behind to deal with now!
Step #19: Spray & Micro-fiber Wipe Door panels, Dash, Seats, Cup-Holders & Center Console: 35 Minutes
This means all plastic door panels, dash, steering wheel, center arm rest, cup holders, visors, seats, move the seats forward to wipe the back of the center console, rear deck, & whatever else that is plastic in your vehicle!. For years we have used our own brand of interior cleaner by mixing 10% Part A – Car & House Cleaner with 10% OLS Part F – Leather Conditioner, & 80% Filtered Water. This diluted down OLS degreaser & leather conditioner mix is what makes up our OLS – Part G Interior Sanitizing Solution! Does not leave what I call “over shine” like other products. The problem with products that make your plastics & dash shiny, is that if you do not keep over saturating the areas with the product. The plastic areas shrink & expand in hot & cold weather, during this time if it is dry of the product, the pores of the plastic become brittle & will not shrink & expand properly, causing cracking & damage!! Do not damage your vehicle with gimmicks!!
Step #20: Add a layer of Conditioner & Polish back to Door panels, Dash, Seats, Cup-holders, & Center Console: 15 Minutes
Add a layer of conditioner & dust protectant to all the plastic surfaces in the vehicle. Door panels, center console, gauge cluster, cup-holders, etc.
Step #21: Apply Detailer’s Lines & a layer of Scotch Guard® Fabric Protection to ALL CARPET : 15 Minutes
After your mats are degreased and pressure washed, I put custom designs in them to really make the detail stand out! Since your mats are shampooed and clean now, I add a layer of Scotch Guard® fabric protection to help keep your floormats clean in the future and hold in the custom designs longer!!
Step #22: Leather Condition all leather Seats, Door panels, & Center console: 15 Minutes
Leather is skin & skin needs to be moisturized. Most women put lotion on their hands daily, sometimes more than once daily! This leather condition step is literally the lotion for your cars interior seats, leather on door panels, & center arm rest! We bring our own OLS – Part F Leather Condition for the job! It will not leave your seats feeling slick but they will feel softer and cleaner!
Step #23: Spray & Wipe Streak-free Exterior & Interior Windows, Mirrors, & Sunroof(s): 20 Minutes
After all the leather conditioner, plastic conditioner, & fabric conditioner has been applied, we do all the windows! Door windows, windshields, & sunroofs! We use our own OLS Part H – Glass Cleaner! Guaranteed to not streak your windows & removing all the contaminants from the windows!
Step #24: After Pictures
Step #25: Final Walk-around with client to OOH & AAH at their finished vehicle after 6 to 8 HOURS – My favorite part 🙂
This really is my favorite part! I have had people say, “it’s too clean to drive!” and such a great job! I really do enjoy getting done with a service and having a satisfied client. I like sitting back for the few minutes and showing the client the spots that are now gone that we discussed in step #2, that spot that they have lived with forever is now gone!!!
Step #26: You’ve heard it before, “it’s hard to get a great review but a bad review travels like wild fire.” We thankfully don’t have any bad reviews! See our 5 Star reviews on Facebook clients have left us in the past!!
Step #27: We create a before and after collage of your detail and send you a link to view your pictures: 1 Hour (Time not included in detail time)
We normally take about 10 – 20 Before Pictures & the matching angle 10 – 20 After Pictures. Every picture above & below are pictures of washes I have completed! Here is a returning client of 4 years getting their, at the time, 16 step Ceramic Wax Detail package in June 2019 & his pictures! This washed really helped the sale of this vehicle!!
Optional add-on step to our Carpet Shampoo Detail: 3 Steps in 1 – Degrease Spray-Wax, & Blow-out to dry the engine, engine bay, & under hood: 20 Minutes
Optional add-on step to our Carpet Shampoo Detail: Prep your vehicle and add factory color touch-up paint back to the vehicle where paint is chipped, scratched, or damaged: 10-25 Minutes depending on number of spots. I normally circle the car 3 to 5 times looking for all the spots & adding layers when needed.
