Body shops are typically a dusty environment, comes with the material used for dent filling, primer sanding etc. These material get airborne inside a body shop workspace and typically find there way inside your car. Even the best run body shops have to manage dust and debris daily.
Vacuuming is critical, washing the exterior gently to be nice to the new paint is required and it helps prevent polishes from being removed.
Pre repair cleaning uses a more rigorous process, not nearly as polish friendly, polishes and waxes must be removed before the repair and carefully reapplied after the repair.
So when you hear “the car must be cleaned”, this doesn't mean a driveway bucket wash from home. It is a more detailed cleaning inside and out.
