Richmond Paint Correction
Eliminate Scratches, Swirls, and Fading

This process is for cars in the Richmond area affected by solar radiation without proper protection for the car's paint. Depending on the damage, Neptune Mobile will use an aggressive glaze or a regular compound to correct the issue.

Spider Webbing

Spider webbing is caused by microscopic silt dust which is created by washing over time and the micro-scratches that begin to pile on one another, creating a spider webbing effect. Similar to oxidation, an aggressive glaze or regular compound will correct the issue.

Car Hologramming Service

Car paint holograms are an eyesore. From far away, they make your car look muted and dull, but it gets worse as you get closer. Under the light, you’ll see several thin, swirling scratches along your paint. This is typically caused by the improper use of a rotary buffer.  Removing the holograms can be done by an aggressive glaze or regular compound.

Animal Droppings 

The reaction created by bird droppings can be one of the most damaging substances to your car’s clear coat faces. If allowed to sit for too long, bird droppings can slowly eat their way into a clear coat. Not only that, but if the droppings are exposed to high temps or UV rays, they will create a semi-permanent etching. We suggest a hyper-coating finish as a solution to bird or other animal droppings.

Water Spotting

Commonly created by solar radiation, water spotting is the result of an added chemical content to water. The etching with the water spots varies on conditions of weather, water droplet content, and paint condition at the time of damage.


Even if you’re the most careful driver, your car will inevitably get a scratch. Whether it was caused by a tree branch or another driver, Neptune Mobile Detailing can erase the scratches for good. Because scratches can be caused by many different sources, our team must visually inspect your vehicle in order to ensure an accurate price quote.

"Brian was responsive, did a fantastic job cleaning some truly nasty upholstery, and was even great with my barking dog. Highly recommended!"
