Contrary to some belief, winter is a very important time to have your vehicle detailed. We all know it’s nice to enjoy your shiny paint, wheels, and glass when the sun is out without contaminants on their surfaces. Some of these contaminants include but are not limited to mud, road tar, grit, grim, salt, acid rain and industrial fallout. When these surfaces are protected with sealant or wax most of the contaminants are repelled away from these surfaces. Any contaminants that are not repelled away are actually sticking to the sealant or wax, not the paint surface therefore can be removed much easier than if your vehicle is not protected.
A vehicle without a fresh coat of paint sealant or wax is exposed to the brutality of the elements. Exposure to adverse conditions can doom your precious paint to oxidation, scratches, swirl marks and corrosion.
By the time summer rolls around your vehicle is in bad shape. The detailer will have to spend more time cleaning and polishing your vehicle. Its definitely more cost effective to maintain your exterior throughout the year plus you get the luxury of always having a clean car. In order to maintain your vehicle’s finish properly you must have it polished and protected at least twice a year with regular maintenance.
It’s also very important to keep the interior of your vehicle clean all year. The contaminants from the road can easily get inside and stain your carpets, seats and upholstery. The interior of your vehicle can also create health issues. Over time food particles, mold, mildew, skin oil, and pet hair will turn into bacteria and grow inside your vehicle causing you and your family to get sick. We have had some mini vans in our shop that actually contained the bacteria level of an entire daycare center. Just like your vehicle’s exterior. It’s all about cleaning, protection and maintenance.
