Car Cleaning Tips

You don’t have to be a car enthusiast to appreciate the value of auto detailing. Whether you are preparing to sell your vehicle, or if you want to maintain and protect it, detailing can only add to the beauty and value of your car. It can be a timely endeavor to do it right, though. Here is a three-step process to adequately detail your vehicle.

The Exterior

A car wash and a detail are two different things. However, good auto detailing begins with a good wash. After the initial wash, give extra attention to the more intricate parts of the vehicle that a general car wash can’t reach. This includes the wheels, tires, and paint, including a polish and wax. The right mitts, microfiber towels, products, and cleaning accessories make a huge difference in the end result of a thorough car wash. But don’t let that overwhelm you — we carry everything you need! Contact one of our experts for assistance in selecting the right detailing tools for your needs.

The Interior

First, interior detailing might include shampooing and vacuuming the upholstery and carpet to remove dirt and stains. Once the soft surfaces are cleaned, you can move onto hard surfaces. Vinyl, plastic, wood grain, and any other materials are cleaned and dressed. Finally, the windows should be cleaned.

Under the Hood

If you want to go the extra mile, detail under the hood. A clean engine bay will not only look amazing, but it can make it easier to work on. If you’re selling your car, a clean engine can only help to improve the value. If you have an engine you want to show off, cleaning, degreasing, and dressing will pack a one-two punch by combining power and presentation.
