10 Reasons to Detail a Car
Everyone wants to ensure the longevity of their car. From oil changes, tire rotations, new tires, engine checks, etc., it is important to get your car examined frequently to ensure everything is running smoothly. Now there is one maintenance item that is also needed among all cars that most people don’t tend to think about and that is detailing. Detailing is an essential item to have done every 4-6 months to ensure the condition and worth of your car.
See below the top 10 reasons to detail your car:
It prevents paint from peeling, rust forming and wheels to weaken (from corrosive asbestos dust that brakes produce).
It preserves the paint, glass, wheels, seats, carpets and dashboard of your car. With the protectant used for detailing, it will protect against attack from paint-staining items like leaves, bird poop, bug splatter, etc.
Helps the resale value. If you plan on selling your car, trade it in to a dealership, then a clean, well maintained car of course will ultimately get you more money in the end. This can also lead to a faster sale.
It creates a more pleasant space for you to spend time in. Let’s be honest, if we are driving to work every day, driving kids around and running errands, we spend A LOT of time in the car. So why not make your car a pleasant and clean space to spend time in?
Simply, it looks WAY better. Whether you show up to a meeting or a hangout with friends, a clean, detailed car will impress and turn people’s heads a lot more than a dirty one.
You will help support your local neighborhood company/wash.
It promotes good health. Your vehicle carries millions of unseen creatures and bacteria. By having too much dirt, dust or debris inside your car, you allow germs and bacteria to form. A thorough detailing and cleaning from a professional will help kill these germs.
A clean, detailed car will reflect on you professionally. Showing up to a business meeting, lunch/dinner or an interview with a clean car will only impress coworkers/future co workers more. A clean car can also provide an organized and clean appearance, which is a desirable trait professionally.
You will avoid future expensive repairs. Having your car detailed on a regular basis will help you avoid expensive issues from arising. Experts say dirt is the number one cause of engine wear (in filters and the whole engine). By maintaining your vehicle now, you can lower the chances of something happening in the future.
A detailed car is a safer car. A clean and shiny car makes you more visible on the road to other drivers.
Other detailing tips:
- It is recommended to get your car detailed every 4-6 months. However someone who washes, waxes and cleans their vehicle on a consistent basis or someone who hardly ever uses their vehicle, will need to detail less often than someone who doesn’t (maybe once or twice a year).
- A wax coat should be applied to your car at least twice a year to protect the finish from dirt and debris.
- Detail your car PRIOR to selling it. We promise, it makes a huge difference on how much someone is willing to pay for it.
- Wash and wax your car in between details to help make your car look newer, as well as to ensure contaminants/debris is removed.
