Express Interior Detail Options
At Cleaner Quicker we do real Details on an express drive-in basis, the more superficial touch-ups of “Full Service” operators, who usually schedule such details in advance. We do them faster than most comparable details because we treat them like a manufacturing process in a factory. We dissect an express detail into each of its discrete tasks, then define the order they must be done in for maximum efficiency, and then develop time standards for tasks, and then test them for reasonableness. New employees are trained first with a training package that breaks out each detail, it’s steps and time standards, and then train side by side with an experienced employee to coach them. The first priority is quality- doing the entire detail completely every time. Then they learn to do it faster without sacrificing quality. They use small kitchen timers- first set to 60% of the time standard for the detail to give them a warning of how they are doing. Later they monitor their own times with the timers, relying on the “Hawthorne Effect” (when you time an activity regularly you tend to get faster automatically) and it works. As a result, we do our cleaning details in way shorter time for comparable work in typical detail shops, which is why we can do them on a drive-in basis.
