According to the IDA website, the-ida.org, “The CD designation is a great achievement and demonstrates a basic mastery of the knowledge and applied skills needed by the detailing professional. The pride of earning the CD designation places that detailing professional among a group at the top of their profession.”
“It requires a sustained commitment and was costly for us,” Pendleton said, “but it shows our customers that we’re dedicated, well-trained, and committed to perfecting our craft.”

Retro Detailing owners, Doug & Dusty Pendleton, announced in April that any first responders or those on the “front line” will receive a FREE disinfecting treatment to their vehicles.
For these vehicles, Retro Detailing will use an Ozone machine for between 7-12 minutes depending on the size of your car. We then air it our for 10 minutes to rid the interior of the Ozone molecules.
After, we disinfect the 12 “hot spots” of the car, including your keys & fob, door handles, buttons, steering wheel, and more.
We wear gloves and an N95 mask during the entire process to ensure that your car stays at germ-free as possible.
If you have any questions, or want to have your car treated, call or text us at (419) 344-3270.
