How to get started in express detailing

When express detailing is added to an operation, there must be commitment. The startup costs of setting up express detailing is minimal since it only requires compressed air, adequate light and some tools and products that will create a great finish. Aside from commitment, staff must be willing to do their part by trying to learn the proper carpet and upholstery cleaning techniques in short time. Staff must have a working knowledge on the right tools and products including time management. It goes without saying that products must be effective and safe when applied.
