About Us

In 2008 we started to use steam in order to clean cars. We have always been driven by the idea to transform the traditional water based car wash into a steam car wash in order
to significantly reduce the water consumption and avoid the use of aggressive chemical products.

With DETTAGLIOAUTO franchise project we would like to make our experience and knowledge available for all the entrepreneurs who are eager to invest in this business opportunity.

Road Map

Innovation

DettaglioAuto is the first company in Italy to have designed equipment and products dedicated to the car steam cleaning. Moreover, thanks to our experience in this sector, we have developed complete solutions for any kind of car condition and for any need of our customers. And not only that. Another great advantage of the DettaglioAuto system is that our electrical equipment is single phase, that is, it consumes much less energy that the conventional three-phase car wash systems, automatic or not (car washing tunnels). To
make things easier and more sustainable, using the DettaglioAuto equipment, you don’t need to have a water recycling system in your installation.

We work constantly to offer innovative solutions that allow us to improve our services and our machines. We have developed a line of biodegradable and non-allergenic detergents, specific for the AUTOMOTIVE field, that respect the environment and the people who use them. We have also developed a line of car care products for decontamination, polishing, nanotechnology together with microfiber cloths, pads, brushes and many other accessories.

The features and characteristics of our steam equipment are the result of more than 10 years of experience in the car cleaning sector as well as more than two decades of experience in the steam cleaning field generally. In fact, there are already several professionals around the world (in the U.S.A., Greece, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Mozambique, Finland, The Netherlands, Spain, e.t.c.) who already use our equipment as well as our products with great success. Thanks to Imex.Serve, the mother company, we are able to support any foreigner who wants to enter the DettaglioAuto network with the know-how and equipment necessary.

The steam cleaners 09EVO series are manufactured in Italy and offer 2 years of warranty! The features and characteristics of this steam equipment are the result of more than 10 years of experience in the specific field of car steam cleaning and detailing. Our machines can be functional in all environments and for this reason they are perfect also for jobs “on the spot”.
The keyword which can easily describe the design of our machines is “simplicity”, so this allows the operator to easily realize the working principles of our machine.

Following this concept, we have studied 2 patented solutions:

  • Connection Mechanism between the steam unit and the wet&dry unit. This helps the maneuverability as well as working even in narrow areas. When needed, the two units can be used independently. Patent N° 1421420 (available at all 09EVO series)
  • LED light on the steam handles of the steam hoses, for both interior and exterior car detail cleaning. Very important feature for applications where the maximum accuracy in the details is required. It ensures great visibility, especially when we happen to work in poorly illuminated areas and it prevents the risk of leaving spots or dirt. Patent N° 1421719 (available as optional at all 09EVO series)

It is important to realize that in the car steam cleaning, steam itself has to have precise features: It mustn’t be too humid or too dry, therefore, the steam regulation is fundamental according to the treated surface. So it is really important to know how to use it, otherwise the risk of causing irreparable damage is high.

Biodegradable detergents

Our interest in ecology and health has made us concerned in developing a range of rapidly biodegradable and non-allergenic detergents, specific for the AUTOMOTIVE field. In particular, for DETTAGLIOAUTO STEAM services.

Certifications

ISO 9001:2015

Our story dates back to 2000 and since then we have gathered a lot of experiences and scored many goals. We have always cared for the quality of what we offer, developing new solutions for the needs of all our customers.

For us, “quality” is not only about good materials but also a moral principle which has to constantly be improved in order to help the company grow. Our purpose always aims at
the future, optimizing and improving our working process, the relationships between our customers and us and the exchange of information.

For this reason, in 2016 we decided to pursue the acquisition of ISO9001 certification, a certificate which honors our efforts. Within a year, our company, IM.EX. SERVE SRL, achieved that goal and this was a huge source of satisfaction, but not the conclusion! There is no end to improvement, we will keep working for you and together with you, for a better future.

Steam sanitization efficacy certification

The quality of the environment defines our wellness! Have you ever wondered how many germs hide inside your vehicle? How many of you trust only your sight? A quick vacuum cleaning on the seats and a layer of polish and everything is cleaned! But if we look deeper using a microscope, we will notice that the fibers of the surfaces are crowded with bacteria and germs which may cause breathing problems, allergies and many other health problems. As the results of the lab test prove, we are able to drastically reduce these bacteria thanks to steam combined with our biodegradable products. Here follows the graphic with the results obtained by a lab accredited ACCREDIA. All the numbers (100,200,300…) are expressed in UFC/24CM2 per 24cm2 or in UFC/SST per tested surface.

The test was done on a Ford Fiesta which had never been treated with steam before. The car received a DettaglioAuto treatment following our technical procedure, which includes the use of our IMEX-09EVO steam machine, the biodegradable detergent for Interiors and our ozone generator. The results prove the efficacy of our sanitization procedure!
