We suggest getting a detail every six months, based on how often your vehicle is used. Once you've had a thorough detail, it is important to preserve the fresh detail touch by doing proper maintenance. We recommend an "Express Detail" bi-weekly or Monthly.
How far you drive will determine on how often your vehicle will be due for a cleaning. For example: If you work from home and only travel a few days out of the week, you may get away with cleaning your vehicle once a month. However, if you travel 30 miles to work 6 days a week, you may need to clean your vehicle bi-weekly or even weekly depending on how harsh your commute is.
Keeping a vehicle clean can be challenging. Pollen can be a cars enemy if action isn't taken quickly. The longer the pollen sits on your vehicles paint, the more likely the pollen will bond to the clear coat.
The tricky part is, you should never try and wipe the pollen off with a dry cloth; this will scrape the pollen against the paint of your car and leave tiny scratches. Furthermore, pollen's acidity is activated with water; rain or simply hosing your car or truck off won't get rid of the pollen can actually lead to premature fading, and even rust.
Giving your car a good wash is the best way to rid the vehicle of the potential contaminant. We recommend protecting your vehicle with wax before the harsh pollen months in order to help keep your clear coat undamaged.
It is important to know that Love bugs are very acidic. While they may not look very harmful sitting on your front bumper, they are slowly etching their way into your clear coat. Removing the bugs from your paint as quick as possible is the best way to avoid damage to your clear coat.
Another helpful precaution is to keep a healthy coat of wax on your vehicle during these seasons of love. This will help prevent the acid from eating through the paint.
Some may think the rain is cleaning their car, but actually, rain will have the opposite effect on a vehicle, this can usually be seen after it dries. The rain leaves behind a thin layer of pollutants that can damage your car's finish.
In addition, when it rains our tires are more likely to pick up all of the dirt from the road and sling it onto the vehicles paint. Removing this road grime is important in order to avoid contamination from the dirt bonding to your clear coat.
