Auto Detailing is something you should have done to your vehicle at least one to two times a year in order to keep it in the best condition possible. When you have auto detailing done by a professional, both the inside and outside of your vehicle will be restored to like-new condition. Your entire car will be cleaned and reconditioned so that it looks its best again. Here are some of the benefits of having auto detailing done…
Detailing Increases Your Value of Your Automobile
It is definitely a cosmetic value but also it is a good investment. An automobile is probably the largest investment most folks make in their lifetime. Regular car detailing by a professional will help whether you are going to trade in, or sell your vehicle after a few years.
More than 17 million new vehicles were sold in the U.S. last year. Those pristine vehicles joined another 245 million already traversing our roads and highways. What all this cars and trucks have in common is a continuous battle with elements that are trying to dull, fade, and tarnish their exterior finishes — sunlight, acid rain, airborne pollutants, and birds. Polishing and waxing play a critical role in maintaining the exterior health of your vehicle. The paint protects the metal that comprises your vehicle, It just makes sense to keep it in great shape and keep the car itself looking good. Chips, scratches, and general paint erosion lead to decay in the metal. That is the main reason to have your vehicle properly washed, polished, and waxed on a regular basis.
Professional Detailers Have Special tools and Techniques
A professional detailer employs special tools, techniques, and materials to make sure every bit of damage to the paint (that does not require a body work or a paint shop) is repaired. That every residue is removed, and every stain is lifted. A detailer has to contend with the environmental effects of tree sap, bird droppings, acid rain or environmental fallout, rail dust, brake dust, water spots, bug residue, and salt, each of which can cause damage to the clear coat. Rock chips, oxidation, fading, scratches, marring, scuff marks. All of these and more affect the paint, the wheels, and the trim. The vinyl, plastic, rubber, glass, mirrors, paint and metal on the outside of your vehicle all need to be cleaned and properly maintained to continue looking good and for your auto to perform at its highest level.
Do Not Forget the Underbody
Many drivers are so fixated on treating car’s paint job that they forget to seal their undercarriage. Big mistake. No auto detail is a full auto detail without undercarriage cleaning. Everything that affects the paint job of your vehicle can also damage its undercarriage. In particular, salt can accumulate under your vehicle, and the resulting corrosion can be problematic. Winter weather can be wicked on your vehicle because of the salt and sand that are used to de-ice the roads are corrosive and abrasive to your auto’s underbody.
Rarely do we keep a car for life, so in most cases you will be trading it in or selling it. To make sure you get the most return of your investment to take proper care of your vehicle and regularly maintain the interior as much as the exterior.
Stain Removal and Prevention
We spend a lot of time in our vehicles. Keeping a car’s interior in good shape is not just an investment in the vehicle, but it’s always nice to cruise around in a clean ride. There are a number of different surfaces in your vehicle and they are comprised of all sorts of materials. Leather, vinyl, fabrics, carpeting, and plastics, they all get dirty. Having the interior detailed on a regular basis will address all those stains, big and small and help prevent them from happening with the application of the correct cleaning and maintenance products.
Disinfect Vehicle Surfaces
We all know how viruses can effect everyone. Cross-contamination from money, food, drinks, and the oils from your hands is everywhere you touch so it is a good idea to have all the surfaces in your vehicle properly cleaned and disinfected by a professional team because they know the right products to use. They know which auto components can be sensitive to certain cleaners and rough touch.
Detailing Protects Upholstery from Environmental Damage
The UVA and UVB rays of the sun are coming to your vehicle that can damage the interior fabrics and finishes over the long term. The interior clean regularly because even with rubber mats, salt and water erosion can still take place. A professionally done auto detailing job means the proper attention will be given to any fabric damage on carpeting and seating and the proper cleaning and fabric maintenance products will be used. Manufacturers are using cheaper fabrics and carpeting these days which causes are greater deal of wear and fraying. Window tinting will help with sun damage since the ultraviolet rays from the sun are intense.
Detailing Keeps Allergies at Bay
Yes, your car is a HUGE source of allergens. The degree of dust, dirt, and grime that accumulates in your vehicle is absolutely staggering. It’s easy to overlook all of the little cracks and crevices in which crumbs, drips, and dust can accumulate. That is why it is recommended you get an interior car detailing job done as the season’s change.
