Auto Detail Services overview
Hand washes are the foundation of any quality auto detail. Our pH neutral vehicle washes begin with specially selected wash mitts designed to lift dirt from the paint surface as delicately as possible.
Soap is carefully selected based on the type of wash and services following it, ranging from a simple maintenance car wash, to decontamination, ceramic maintenance, or surface strip wash.
A pre-wash foam cannon soak carries heavy dirt and particulates from the surface before we ever touch the paint. Bugs and particulates embedded in the paint are removed using polymeric cleaners and specialized pre-treatment steps to prevent scratching the paint surface.
A multi-bucket method combined with grit guards prevents recontamination of your vehicle's paint during the wash.
A final rinse with de-Ionized water followed by a heated, filtered blow dry and hand dry completes the auto wash process.
Midwest weather and road conditions put our vehicles (and paint) through some of the harshest conditions in the country. From long harsh winters, endless construction, insect swarms, bird droppings, industrial fallout, and other road debris, our cars can live a rough life.
While regular auto washing removes the majority of visible contamination, it leaves behind embedded particulates that require more invasive extraction techniques for safe removal.
There are two primary decontamination methods, chemical and mechanical. When combined, they ensure a fully decontaminated paint surface, ready for protection. Check our our paint decontamination page for more information.
Automotive paint protection comes in many forms, with varying degrees of protection, gloss, depth, and durability. No matter what you choose, it is essential to protect your paint from the elements if you'd like to extend its life.
Auto waxes, while still popular, provide the least durability and longevity. Paint sealants are a step up from waxes, and will last longer while offering similar hydrophobic qualities.
Ceramic infused waxes and sealants provide a higher level of durability but require reapplication throughout the course of a year.
Ceramic coatings are the ultimate form of vehicle paint protection, and while they are often more expensive than waxes or sealants, they provide extended paint protection of up to 5 years.

Today's vehicles often leave the dealer lot with scratches, swirl marks, scuffs, paint transfer, orange peel and more. Repairing these paint defects often requires a process called paint correction. Paint correction employs the help of micro-abrasive compounds applied with rotating polishers to 'level' the paint, removing a very fine layer to expose a fresh surface and smooth our any imperfections. You can think of it as a sort of auto paint exfoliation.
While many claim to offer this service, it is not one you should allow just anyone to perform. Improper paint correction by inexperienced detailers can leave your paint looking dull at best, and at worst leave you with burn through and UV failure. Fixing these mistakes can add up to thousands of dollars and sometimes require paint respray.
The team at ADS has been specializing in paint correction for more than 15 years and has experience with an exceptionally broad range of paint types. When you leave your vehicle with ADS, you can rest easy knowing that your paint is being corrected by experts.
The inside of your vehicle is just as important (if not more important) than the exterior. For many, it serves as a home away from home. In fact, its likely you spend more time looking at the inside of your vehicle than the outside.
For this reason, keeping your interior surfaces clean and looking their best is something we love to do. Today's vehicles feature a variety of delicate materials requiring special care to ensure a long life.
Our interior detailing services shine due to our extraordinary level of attention to detail, focusing on the areas where it matters the most, using the safest methods possible.
