Detailing a car is a very thorough job that can be rather time consuming, but that is necessary from time to time if you care for your vehicle.
If you do not have the time, the patience, or the skills, you can hire a professional to come to your home or office; there are plenty of mobile car detailing professionals who can do a good job on time and on budget.
Prices charged for mobile car detailing vary depending on the size of the vehicle and the level of detailing required. Basic detailing lasts no more than 2.5 hours, and includes washing the exterior and the wheels, cleaning the windows and the interior, doing a complete vacuum, and using an air freshener. Full detailing takes around 3 or 4 hours to complete, and also includes polishing and a minute interior cleaning; in this case, attention is paid to all door frames, windows and windscreens, vents, the dashboard, etc. Alternatively, you can choose a thorough detailing of just the interior or just the exterior of your car.

What to expect from interior detailing
If you decide to focus on the interior only, arrange a time for the detailer to stop by and start working on your vehicle. Everyone has their own way of doing things, but typically the detailer will begin with the top part of your car interior.
First, he will dust and vacuum the upholstery, the trunk, the dashboard, the seats, and the floor after he has removed the mats and vacuumed them properly. Secondly, with a sponge, a towel and a foam cleanser, it is time to remove any stains that have accumulated over time – this part may need to be repeated several times until the stains are gotten rid of.
Depending on the material your seats are covered in (i.e., cloth or leather), the detailer will either use a shampoo or a leather cleaner and a microfiber cloth to wash away dust and dirt. At this point, a conditioner may also be used to make leather seats look newer. The crevices, frames, air vents and other narrow spaces can be cleaned using special utensils like detailing brushes, while a specifically designed interior dressing can complement the cleaning process and give a brand new shine to vents and other small surfaces. Finally, mirrors and windows should be sprayed with a glass cleaner.
A professional detailer will pay close attention to every detail and avoid mistakes that occur frequently, such as leaving any damp areas inside the car that are perfect for the subsequent growth of mold.
