Frequently Asked Questions About Our Services

We want to simplify the auto detailing process by providing our Owings Mills customers with straightforward responses to some frequently asked questions.

What should I expect when I arrive?

A friendly, energetic and professional team who cares about your car as much as you do will greet you and explain the different packages available.

What kind of cleaning products do you use?

At Smooth Finishes Professional Detailing, we only use biodegradable acid-free and caustic free soaps cleaning products that are safe for your car and our environment.

How do I protect my clearcoat?

A sealant creates a barrier that helps protect clearcoated surfaces from corrosive elements, such as ultraviolet rays and airborne contaminants. Other destructive factors include tree sap, acids from leaf stains, bug spatter and bird droppings. All of these can eat through the clearcoat and cause permanent damage. A sealant produces a protective shield for up to 30 days.

Why does the paint finish on my car look streaky and dull?

This lackluster appearance is often a sign of oxidation, which occurs as paint ages and decays from exposure to road oils and sunlight. You can decrease the process by washing your vehicle frequently, applying a sealant regularly and coating it with a hand wax at least annually.
