Salt and Snow Removal:

  • Winter roads are often covered with salt, snow, and mud, which can damage your car's paint and corrode its surface.

  • Preventing equipment and products from freezing is a top priority at Wings Mobile Detailing to ensure that our products stay fresh, and in the best quality for our customers all year long. In our mobile detailing vans, we have devised a methodology of keeping all equipment and detailing materials stored safely without the risk of freezing and ruining the chemical makeup of our products.

  • ⭐Tip! If you are detailing your own cars, we recommend keeping your products in your garage if it is temperature controlled, otherwise, store them safely inside to protect your products from freezing, and thereby, losing quality.

  • Wings Mobile Detailing employs a bucket heater for warm water during exterior detailing if it is not quite freezing temperatures outside, and in below freezing weather we utilize a waterless rinse-less method that every one of our detailers gets trained and tested on.

  • ⭐Tip! For interior detailing, the team recommends turning off the car while detailing to prevent the water from freezing on hard surfaces. Wearing thick gloves and warm clothes helps detailers stay comfortable during the process.
