Your car is subject to daily abuse from sun, pollution, and dirt–a combination that, with time, will dull and roughen your exterior finish. Constant exposure to the elements are hard to see with the naked eye. These pollutants are everywhere, and they stick to your paint and not only do they cause the surface to feel rough but with time, can even penetrate the clear coat and allow for the metal to rust. Other detail shops may be capable of minor cosmetic improvements, but often at the cost of unsightly swirls and scratches through improper buffing techniques. Whatever your situation, returning your car’s exterior paint to its original luster may seem impossible. But it isn’t.
When it comes to your vehicle, our goal is this: make your paint look as close to new as possible without expensive repairs. Once we are complete with our detailing process, we inspect your vehicle in natural sunlight for final touchup if needed.

It isn’t easy to remove odors from a car or truck. One of the most frustrating aspects of purchasing a used car is when you detect cigarette smoke, pet odors, puke/vomit odors or other lingering smells. Some people will try to eliminate or mask unpleasant odors with sprays or deodorizers. Those treatments often fail. Many strong odors are nearly impossible to remove and require a professional’s touch to eliminate them. At Dick Hannah Auto Detailing, we have an extensive odor removal process that includes using an ozone machine that kills odor with fine mist. This process eliminates odor by using an eco-friendly approach and leaves no residue behind. Ozone treatment, usually combined with car interior detailing, can permanently kill the root cause of the odors. Ozone treatment is the most powerful and environmentally friendly method to get your car smelling fresh again.
Your headlights play an important role and if they are not crystal clear, it could be a safety hazard to you and to other drivers. If you have noticed that your lights aren’t as bright as they were before, they may need to be restored and cleaned. We have done thousands of headlight restorations on vehicles in the Vancouver, WA area.
Your vehicle encounters all of the seasons here in the Pacific Northwest and over time, can cause your car’s paint to fade or look dull. With our proprietary wax treatment at Dick Hannah Auto Detailing, the wax will provide a thin layer of protection to your paint. This will protect your vehicle from harsh debris and reduce the possibility of sun fading. Also, wax treatments will prevent water stains from occurring.
At Dick Hannah, family, integrity, respect, and purpose matter.
