WHY DETAIL?

CARE TIPS FOR YOUR VEHICLE BETWEEN DETAILS

It is important to professionally detail your vehicle for the following reasons!

Natural elements, such as radiant and ultraviolet energy, acid rain, salt, atmospheric pollution, insect fluids, and bird droppings wage a constant war on your vehicle’s finish. Detailing provides an easily renewable, transparent barrier between the finish and environmental damages.These elements are not treatable with normal washing.

Regular detailing by a professional not only gets rid of the damage, but prevents it from reoccurring!

The more use a vehicle experiences, means the more important it is to get the proper protection provided with a professional detail. Professional detailing helps to protect the vehicle’s finish from the dangers of everyday use. Even vehicles that remain sheltered benefit from proper detailing to enhance the paint whilst protecting it, prolonging vehicle finish.

Properly maintained vehicles last longer, inside and out. When a vehicle is properly detailed regularly, the results are clear.

A professional detail provides:
• Protected, flawless paint with deep, lustrous shine.
• Removal of tar, road film, bug stains, water spots and other road grime.
• A conditioned, protected interior, making “normal wear” a thing of the past.
• A vehicle that looks NEW, years after purchase.

Scratch Prevention

Never wipe down your vehicle with a dry towel or your shirt, always moisten a soft towel to wipe down sudden stains or small areas of dirt, if completely necessary. Avoid taking your vehicle through an automated car wash, as the machines/brushes are rarely cleaned and rub dirt against your paint. This is the leading cause of scratches to vehicle paint. Avoid leaning against, place boxes, books, mugs, clothing, dry cleaning on your car. The zippers, buttons, and clothing material can scratch the paint as you lean or move against the paint. The bindings of books, and box edges can dig into your vehicle finish as it slides against the car. Hangars for dry cleaning will also scrape vehicle finishes when thrown or dragged across the paint.

Stain Prevention

Accidents happen, so ensure there are lids or caps placed on all beverages, refrain from open food as much as possible! Crayons and markers should be left at home for children to play with, children will draw on seats and panels. Any crayons left in the car will melt in the heat, severely staining upholstery. Refrain from pushing/kicking doors open with your shoes, as they will scratch, stain and damage door panels.

Natural Element Prevention

If possible, avoid parking under trees, power lines or grown shrubbery, as bird droppings, tree sap, and other debris are extremely likely to come in contact with your vehicle’s finish. These elements are the most detrimental to vehicle paint when not immediately removed. If rain is in the forecast, and you have access to a garage, overhang or any form of vehicle housing, use it! Acid rain leaves annoying, difficult to remove water marks that wont come out by hand. Avoid leaving a vehicle in direct sun exposure for long periods of time, as UV rays deteriorate wax and clear coat, aging and fading your vehicle finish. Also, will quickly age and discolor a vehicle interior, plastic or vinyl trim and rubber. Seek shade in building shadows, or any form of vehicle housing if possible.
