DETAILING

The Window Film Expert for Your Home, Business and Car

Solar Shade Is Jacksonville’s Car Detailing Expert

Think the typical car wash is all you need to get your vehicle looking brand new? Think again.

Cars, trucks, and SUVs in northeast Florida are subject to dry, humid weather conditions. Even boats are damaged by water’s corrosive environment. But you can prevent the build-up of grime that distracts from the appearance of your vehicle with car detailing at Solar Shade Window Tint.

From ceramic coating and premium waxing to odor removal and steam cleaning, we offer a wide variety of services that not only deliver superior protection, but also help retain the resale value of your vehicle or boat – ensuring both the interior and exterior appear “like-new”.

Auto Detailing Services

  • Ceramic Coating – Protect any paint surface with the technology of ceramic coating. Providing an extra layer of defense, this clear coating upholds your new car shine by repelling dirt, dust and other particles. More than that, it eliminates the need for waxing and prevent your vehicle’s finish from deteriorating, helping to maintain its showroom condition.
  • High End Polishing – There’s nothing quite like the polished fenders of a Porsche, Corvette or Tesla. Ensure your luxury vehicle has a smooth sheen that’s becoming of its name. The experts at Solar Shade Window Tint apply a special polish that removes minor blemishes, including surface scratches, swirl marks, nicks, and scuffs.
  • Premium Waxing – Protect the polished surface of your car or boat with our Carnauba wax. Designed to prevent airborne pollutants, acid rain, and other contaminants from sticking to the surface, the wax serves as a clear, shiny protective layer against the elements.
  • Paint Correction – Does your vehicle lack the shimmer it once had? Let Solar Shade Window Tint’s paint correction specialist have a look! Using a precise, abrasive technique, we can remove the minuscule layer of damage and then buff your car to return it to a high gloss finish.
  • Headlight Restoration – When environmental factors like UV rays, harsh chemicals, and constant heating and cooling accelerate the effects of oxidation to your headlights, it can result in yellow, clouded headlights that reduce light output and impede your ability to see at night. Our sanding and polishing system restores the quality of your headlights to crystal clear!
  • Odor Removal – Eliminate harmful festering germs, bacteria, allergens, mold, fungus and odors that leave your car smelling less than pleasant. Whatever the stink – wet dog, spilled milk, fast food, or body sweat – we can get rid of it for good. And this leaves you with a healthier atmosphere inside your car.
  • Steam Cleaning – Whether your vehicle is heavily or lightly soiled, a steam clean can quickly lift dirt, dyes, oils, and salt, removing potentially dangerous chemicals. Solar Shade Window Tint’s detailing equipment works to penetrate deep into fabric, upholstery and other surfaces to safely eliminate grime and leave your car extra clean!
  • Stain Removal – Did you get food, drink, oil, or other marks on the fabrics or mats inside your car? Our professionals can help get rid of tough interior stains by completing a thorough, multi-step stain removal process. Plus, we can apply a stain resistant coating to prevent new stains from occurring!
  • European Steam Cleaning – Remove dirt, spills and stains the safe way. Solar Shade Window Tint’s powerful chemical-free hot vapor cleaning technique eliminates odor-causing bacteria and allergy-causing germs from fabrics, upholstery, carpets, mats, and even hard interior surfaces.
  • Eco Washing – An eco-friendly alternative to your typical car wash, a waterless car wash cleans your car using a high lubricity spray that collects dirt and dust particles. It’s also more efficient and effective than a water-based wash, as water can hurt your bodywork and leave marks.

Every car deserves to shine (literally!) – contact us to learn how we can help restore the luster to your vehicle or boat today.
