For an in-depth breakdown of what machine cut polishing, please check our FAQ’s below.

What is paint correction and why it should be done?
Paint correction is the process that removes scratches, swirl marks, water spots, etching marks from bird feces and bug splatter, paint defects, etc. It should be done to improve the look of the vehicle. Paint correction ensures that your vehicle’s surface is properly prepared for ceramic coatings, sealants and waxes. The coatings will bond to the clearcoat better thereby making it more durable and last longer. Typically, you’ll hear the terms, “compounding, polishing and buffing” but these are all fall under what paint correction involves.
Will my paint look brand new again?
Yes, however, results will depend on the age and condition of the vehicle. Paint correction can achieve near-flawless results. However, a lot of variables must be considered. The year of the vehicle is a major part. A very old car that has been treated poorly and has a lot of scratches, swirl marks and other defects will make it very difficult to achieve 100 percent results. If you want flawless results, this will usually entail more time and a higher price point.
What is wet sanding?
Wet Sanding is the process of removing a small layer of clearcoat via high-grit sandpaper to smooth the surface and increase accuracy of reflection. Keep in mind that sanding will not completely harm your vehicles clear coat system. It’s simply a different method of achieving show room shine. Vehicle maintenance plays a big role in how much sanding can be performed on the vehicle. Older vehicles are less likely to achieve a 100 percent flawless correction as the clear coat has experienced much more deterioration over the years. It is more of a risk to perform paint correction because the clearcoat is likely thinner than newer vehicles, but we use a Paint Thickness Gauge to ensure there is enough clearcoat to safely work with.  When a car is newly painted, there are situations where an “orange peel” effect is created. Vehicles have been known to come right out of the factory with this problem.  Jeremy at Podium Detailing is a certified wet sander and polisher from the highly reputable Rupes Canada.
What are the options of paint correction?
$90 per hour.  Time can range from 3 hours to 40 hours of paint correction depending on the vehicle.

Jeremy is awesome! We got back after a long road trip and a smell in our car that would not go away.... pretty sure one of the kids dumped their milk. Jeremy was at my house 2 days after booking and he was right on time. He spent a couple hours scrubbing every inch of our SUV. The smell is gone and the vehicle looked as good as the day we bought it new. We will definitely hire Jeremy again and have referred him to all our friends.

Jeremy is so professional, friendly, and good at what he does. He cleaned my cherished Defender so well that someone actually commented on it today, several weeks later! Everything is shining beyond belief, looking and smelling like a dream. Thanks Jeremy!

This was our first time getting a car washed in an out, and we will be getting Jeremy to come out when we need a car done again. He is professional, sends lots of reminders (which I need!), and showed up EXACTLY on time. He worked super hard for 3 hours and our SUV is seriously spotless. We have 3 big dogs in it every day, and he got rid of all the fur, the vents are all cleared of dust and the car smells amazing. We do try hard, with a cargo mat, soft comprehensive cargo liners which and a big blanket all of which are cleaned regularly- but none the less, the car gets dirty. What a plus for me to get the inside and outside spotless (more detailing than when I've done it myself for sure). I would not hesitate to recommend Podium Mobile Detailing.

Jeremy came highly recommended and I am so thrilled with his service. He removed 2 car seats and brought my car back to life! Looks brand new after 7 years of snacks and sippy cups.
