How does detailing Tesla vehicles differ compared to other cars?

Teslas are unique vehicles that require special care when it comes to detailing and cleaning. While the basic principles of detailing and cleaning any car are the same, there are some key differences when it comes to caring for a Tesla.

One of the biggest differences is the use of cleaning products. Tesla recommends the use of only pH-neutral, non-abrasive cleaners on the exterior and interior of their vehicles. This is because harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners can damage the paint and interior surfaces of a Tesla. It’s important to use only specially formulated cleaners that are safe for use on Tesla’s to ensure that the finish and interior are not damaged.

Another difference is the use of wax and sealants. Tesla recommends against the use of wax on their vehicles due to the potential for it to leave a residue on the paint that can be difficult to remove. Instead, Tesla recommends the use of a ceramic coating, which provides long-lasting protection and a high-gloss finish without the need for wax.

In addition to the use of specialized cleaning products, it’s important to take care when detailing a Tesla to avoid damaging the delicate finishes and materials used in the vehicle. This includes using soft, microfiber towels to dry the exterior and avoiding the use of brushes or harsh scrubbing on the paint and other surfaces. In general, Tesla has a much softer clear coat and less of it compared to other manufacturers. 

Overall, the key to caring for a Tesla is to use gentle, specialized cleaning products and to handle the vehicle with care to avoid damaging its delicate finishes.

I've always detailed my own cars myself and used to do this as a side hustle in the past. That being said; if I was going to have someone else detail my car, I was going to make sure their work and reviews looked high quality. I decided to have a full interior and exterior detail on my car in addition to sealant and a polish job. I think the photos speak for themselves but I was very satisfied and impressed with all aspects of the service from Erick. Punctuality, communication, quality of services, and costs for offerings. I would 100% recommend him to anyone; whether you are looking for touch up wash, or a full on detail and paint correction; you will NOT be disappointed!

The service was fantastic. I had my car detailed in anticipation of proposing to my (now) fiancée. He arrived right on time at my work and had everything finished just in time for me to leave at the end of the day. Amazing quality, and he went above and beyond! Totally worth it, and would do it again.

Erick and his team did a fantastic job on the interior of my husband’s large SUV! It needed some serious TLC and they were able to have it looking as close to brand new as possible. Booking was quick and easy and they were very responsive. 10/10 highly recommended. Thank you so much Erick and team!

My car needed some TLC after several years of neglect and a recent collision repair. Erick applied his deep knowledge of paint and interior materials to help me choose the highest value services, and then executed them with great care.

Auto Detail DMV rocked the full detailing and paint repair for my 17-year-old car. Highly recommend—solid communication and deeply knowledgeable of the craft. Whatever you need to read here to convince you to give them a shot, pretend you’re reading it now.

Great job on our 2 cars! They sparkled when he was done. I found Erick’s service online, not a referral, so I was a bit hesitant. Glad we took a chance on this enterprising young man! Erick gave me prices upfront with the caveat that he may need to adjust when he saw the cars. One didn’t need interior detailing and the other just needed minor interior cleaning, to include removing some light blue jean bluing from the drivers seat. He adjusts his prices based on the work needed; not a “one price fits all” like car washes. He did not try to up-sell us services. We will definitely use him for our cars again and again.

I am very happy I hired Erick for washing and detailing my wife's car. The car came out looking great and it was conveniently done at our home. It was not hard to get a convenient appointment. But most importantly Erick is a very friendly and hardworking guy who cares about a job well done. He is very easy to work with. I highly recommend!

I had not used a mobile detailing service before and had read about other people's bad experiences with some firms. However my dealings with Erick were straightforward and very professional. HIs services were clearly listed on the website as well as in the proposal, and it was easy to make an appointment and communicate via text and email. Erick arrived at exactly the promised time and met a schedule constraint that I had. The car (large SUV) looked great and Erick also pointed out some minor scratches that he could repair in the future if I acquired a paint kit from Toyota. All in all a very satisfying first experience and I will consider his services again on my other vehicles.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. On the day of the appointment he was extremely punctual and he a did a fantastic job of detailing the interiors of my car. Before the service there was lots and lots of pet hair in the car and whilst I expected them to be taken care of, what I finally got was more than I had expected. I would strongly recommend Erick for car detailing. He is also very flexible and reasonably priced.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. Erick did a great job detailing my vehicle! It had been a while since I'd gotten my car cleaned and it was not in the best condition. Erick told me it's take about 2 - 3hrs to finish the job and he was right on target. My car looks brand new and smells great. He took out strains I thought would never come out of my car and has a good eye for detail on what needed to be done. Would definitely recommend and would definitely hire again for another detailing.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. Erick did a fantastic job! My husband’s truck was difficult to drive because it was such a mess 🙂 The typical mess from a large dog, hiking, fishing, road trips, etc. We traded vehicles for a bit and I immediately scheduled a detail. 90% of the dog hair is gone. There’s no evidence of dirt or grime. Every inch of the interior is clean! I can drive to work without fear of being covered in dog hair now! Erick was friendly, on time, efficient and professional! I will certainly use Erick again in the future.

Erick was extremely professional and prompt in the initial communication and was very happy to answer all my questions and doubts. With being a Mom of two, and one on the way. I needed my vehicle detailed very badly. We are always on our way to some sort of sports so we literally live in our vehicle some weeks. It was a wreck. Erick came and saved the day. He did AMAZING! My carpets were shampooed as well as the seats. He was able to clean the center console and it looked BRAND NEW. He even detailed the third row seating! Overall, my husband and I were so impressed we're gonna get the rest of our vehicles done by him as well. Very thankful for Erick's help with this nesting Mama 🙂

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s a good idea to get your car oil changed or have it serviced at least twice a year to maintain optimal vehicle health. The amount of detailing you get done depends on the condition of your vehicle and your vision of what you want your car to look like. Car detailing increases your car’s resale value, looks good, and extends the life of your car.

To assess the paint condition, there are two tests that you can perform:

Run your hand lightly over the top surfaces of your car after washing and drying. The top surfaces should feel very soft and smooth. If you notice any rough spots or feel any drag, your car needs to be waxed. 

Spray water on the car and run your hand over the top surfaces. If you see tight beads, that means the paint has the right level of protection. If you see loose beads, then your car does not have enough protection. If you don’t see any beads, your car doesn’t have enough protection. Apply a wax immediately.

The answer to this greatly depends on the service package you select and the condition of the vehicle, but generally anywhere from 2 hours to a couple days if you select a more expansive service like a ceramic coating. A very heavily neglected interior detail with pet hair, stains and odors might take 6 hours.

It’s not just about cleaning your car. It’s about preserving and, in some cases, restoring your vehicle’s original condition through professional, thorough processes that include:

  • Bug removal
  • Tar removal
  • Sap removal
  • Prevent water spots 
  • Tire and rim treatment
  • Interior leather and vinyl conditioning
  • Carpet shampooing
  • Waxing (UV Protection)
  • Polishing
  • Protective processes that keep your car’s paint job looking as good as new.


Regular detailing prolongs the life of your vehicle, protects its safety and integrity, and increases its value.

Tunnel washes also cause heavy scratches that actually damage your car’s entire exterior over time. Read more about the details of why you should not use an automatic car wash here

Contrary to popular belief, winter is one of the most critical times to have your vehicle professionally serviced. It is crucial to have your car’s exterior detailed during the winter and rainy seasons to protect the paint and finish from harsh weather conditions such as snow, ice, salt, and acid rain.

Regular detailing helps prevent rust, corrosion, and damage caused by debris and contaminants, ultimately extending the lifespan of your vehicle and maintaining its resale value.

Your engine compartment should be regularly cleaned to optimize performance. By getting the engine bay detailed, you ensure that dirt, debris, and grime are removed, allowing for better airflow and cooling. This, in turn, helps the engine run more efficiently and prevents overheating.

Additionally, a clean engine bay makes it easier to identify and address any potential issues or leaks, ensuring the longevity and reliability of your vehicle.

Your door jambs essentially act as gutters for your vehicle. When the door jambs are clogged, water intrusion or leak formation is much more likely. This is bad news, as water will collect under your carpeting causing mold and mildew.
