The first thing people notice about the car is its exterior. That's why detailers devote much of their time and attention to a vehicle's body, ensuring it looks its best. They want it to look as good as it did when it was brand new. Restoring its gloss by means of a paint job is a common focus since the car surface loses its shine with the passing of time. In addition to repainting the car, a detailer will also work on the windows, wheels, tires and rims to make sure they look their best. Dirt, grease, rust - they all disappear during the exterior stage - with the help of degreasers and detergents - to ensure a car looks its cleanest.
They say outer beauty is nothing without beauty within. That's something auto detailers agree with. Therefore, it comes as no surprise when detailing experts spend much time cleaning the inside of a car, perhaps spending more time inside compared to the exterior. A standard practice is vacuuming, to remove all the dirt and dust that has accumulated inside a vehicle over time. In addition to vacuuming, there is the cleaning of car seats and door interiors. The materials used in vehicles differ, whether they're made of leather, plastics, vinyls, or carbon fiber composites. No matter what's used, detailers work hard to remove the stains and blemishes to ensure that the interior looks brand new. Common cleaning tools include steam cleaners, liquid/foam solutions and brushes for scrubbing. When used in combination with each other, detailing professionals are able to provide a deep clean that you may not be able to do on your own.
Increase Your Car's Resale Value
You'll have an easier time selling your car if it looks crisp.
You may think your car can only hold a maximum of five passengers, but that's not the case. You see, a shiny and spot-free vehicle is much like a person going in for a job interview. The applicant can be the perfect person for the position, but the employer won't see that if this individual is poorly groomed. Likewise, a car coated with dirt and grime, or a vehicle with a drably-looking interior won't resonate well with prospective buyers. Your vehicle's clean appearance could push an apprehensive buyer to say “sold!”
Promotes Good Health
You may think your car can only hold a maximum of five passengers, but that's not the case.
Your vehicle carries millions (perhaps billions) of microscopic occupants. Whether you like to picture it or not, germs and allergens flourish in cars. The accumulation of dirt, dust and debris (including food crumbs) inside a car's cabin filter, carpet upholstery and seats, allow microorganisms to circulate in your vehicle. Car detailing involves the removal of these particles (by means of vacuuming), and the sterilization of interior surfaces with the use of cleaning solutions. So if you're prone to sniffling and sneezing, relief may come from the work of a detailer.
Sweating the Details
Germs and allergens flourish in cars
Auto detailing is not a necessity, but it's certainly worth your time.
Your car is a reflection of you, and others may form some of their impressions of you based on how your car looks. So it makes sense to invest some cash and time into detailing. A normal car wash will only go so far, but a thorough detailing can remove the tough stains and blemishes which stubbornly remain on (or in) your vehicle. You won't regret it once it leaves the shop looking glossy!
