What is a DAD?
A dad is a Dodo Juice Authorised Detailer, All at Gleam are proud that we have dad status, So along with the great products Dodo Juice make and our advanced detailing techniques your car will be looking its best
What makes a DAD better than a car wash or local sponge monkey?
Car washes and hand car wash guys have their place. But
that’s not anywhere near decent paintwork. Often a car wash guy means
well, but he could accidentally inflict swirls into paintwork because of
the techniques and gear he is using. He just wants to get the job done
quickly, and if the car looks more or less clean and the customer is
happy, so is he. It isn’t ‘detailing’, where the attention to detail
sets the end result apart from a mere valet. If all a car wash guy
leaves behind is a bit of dirt, you have done well. If he drops the
sponge when you aren’t looking, he may have accidentally put fine
scratches into the paint. Luckily, these can normally be removed quickly
and safely by a DAD...
