Assumption can lead to disaster in many areas of life, and taking care of your automobile is no exception. Taking on a new task with no training or education can be a worthwhile endeavor if there is nothing at stake, and learning is the main objective.
But when the results have the potential to cause damage to your investment, A.K.A. your vehicle, then a more cautious approach is recommended.
While common sense is an important factor in automotive care, it is not necessarily always the best solution when caring for and protecting a vehicle.
To present another perspective, if you are having problems with your computer, you are not just going to open it up and start messing around with the interior components without any training, are you? Most IT experts would seriously discourage such action.
It is no different with your vehicle. It is a complex machine, and you need to know what you are doing if you are going to start meddling with it.
Here are some ways a professional detailer can help prevent you from causing damage to your vehicle, and to keep it running at an optimal level.
Use a Professional Auto Detailer to Avoid These Mistakes
Through the assistance of an expert, you can protect your valued asset and help prolong its life.
Here are some helpful hints:
- Wash your car at the right time
- Use the right products
- Cleaning is not the same as washing
- Polishing and waxing are not the same thing
- Protective wax should be reapplied regularly
Pick the Optimal Time to Wash Your Vehicle
A lot of vehicle owners believe that you can just pick any old time to have your car washed. While I guess that is technically true, it is not true if you are looking for the best results.
Washing your car while it is still hot from the sun or operation will leave spots. Let it cool before washing.
Don’t wait until your car is absolutely filthy to have it washed. Letting a layer of grime build up on your car can damage the finish. Have it washed on a regular basis.
The Right Products
Employing a professional detailing will ensure the right products are being used on your automobile. Using ineffective or harmful products will do a poor job and may even cause damage to your vehicle.
Professional detailers also tend to use products that are environmentally friendly.
Cleaning and Washing are Different
Washing is the result you get from a regular car wash. Cleaning is something more comprehensive and thorough. A professional auto detailing will result in a deep clean, both on the inside and outside of your car.
Polishing and Waxing are Not the Same
Polishing and waxing are two very different practices. Polishing is done to make the exterior surface appear shiny. Waxing is done to protect the finish.
Shiny does not necessarily equal clean or protected.
Protective Wax Should be Applied Regularly
Waxing is not one of those things that be done every few years while continuing to provide full protection for your paintjob.
It should be done on a consistent basis by a professional that knows what they are doing, using the right products.
