How essential is it to take care of your Vehicle?

Washing your car is not always enough to get it back to pristine condition. In some cases, you may end up doing more damage to the paint by washing it at the local car wash. Detailing your car is not just for those who want crazy paint, vinyl, and decals to show it off at car shows. It is a safe way to make sure the interior and exterior stay in excellent condition no matter how old your car is.

Detailing! It is essential for the condition of your car whether you are keeping it for a short time, or until the wheels fall off. For what it is worth, detailing will also help prevent your wheels from turning into scrap!

What is Car Detailing?

Automotive detailing is a fairly a self-explanatory procedure, in that it involves a “detailed” cleaning process, oftentimes accompanied by the restoration of damaged components. Externally, detailing helps protect paint, glass, and body parts form harmful UV rays, contaminants, and damage stemming from driving.

Why should you detail your car?

Taking good care of one’s investment will always reap rewards one way or another. A detailed vehicle will be easier to maintain as a slicker paint surface will keep the car cleaner for longer between washes. It will also prevent the vehicle degrading from the elements such as UV rays, air-born contaminants, and winter salts.

What is the difference between detailing and a car wash?

Valeting is often just a quick wash and wax, using harsh chemicals, drying blades and poor-quality wax offering little protection. Detailing is a very thorough process that only uses the world’s finest and safest products, most of which are expensive. Another difference is time, our detailers will ensure the job is done to the highest possible standard. The right after care will keep the vehicle in great condition.
