When your car's exterior accumulates fine scratches and swirl marks from regular wear and tear, it's common to wonder - can auto detailing remove scratches? The answer is yes; professional mobile detailers have techniques that can make scratches less visible or remove them entirely in many cases.

In this article, we'll look at how our mobile detailing service can effectively remedy scratch damage on your vehicle's paint and clear coat.

Light Scratch Minimizing

For fine swirl marks and superficial scratches, we use quality polishing compounds and a buffered polisher to smooth the finish. Multi-stage polishes gently reduce the appearance of light scratches.

Scratch Filling

Deeper scratches can be "filled" by our technicians during polishing. Advanced scratch fillers embed into crevices to minimize visible damage before refinishing the surface.

Paint Correction

Extensive swirling and scratching may require paint correction to remove blemished clear coat so fresh paint can be revealed. This process removes deeper scratches for a flawless appearance.

Clear Coat Scratches

If scratches penetrate the clear coat but not the base paint, we can carefully wet sand and polish out the defects. This removes scratching in the coating itself.

Full Repaints

For heavy scratching and grooving that damages paint, a full repaint of the affected area may be required. We can perform repainting to fix extensively scratched sections.

While not all scratching can be removed, our mobile detailers have an arsenal of scratch removal and minimization techniques. Contact us today to schedule an inspection, and we can advise the best approach for remedying the types of scratches on your vehicle.
