Consequences of Neglecting Your Car.

Some believe that auto detailing is a process that is only done when a car is “dirty”.  Others, include detailing as part of their car’s routine maintenance,  just like an oil change.  The second group have it correct.  Neglecting your car’s appearance, even for a short amount of time, can result in damage to its surfaces.  Some of this damage can be difficult or impossible to restore.  A few examples of the materials that can be quickly damaged include:

  • Wheel surfaces can be damaged by brake dust.
  • Painted surfaces are vulnerable to road grime, bird droppings, and bug residue.
  • Tires can crack and dis-color of not cleaned and protected often.
  • Leather upholstery is attacked by acidic dirt and body oils, causing cracking.
  • Carpet, mats, and fabric upholstery accumulate dirt that can wear down its fibers.
  • Vinyl and plastic surfaces are discolored by dirt and body oils.

Most every surface of your car can be damaged if not cleaned and protected on a regular basis.  If you desire to keep your car looking great, it is smart to include auto detailing as part of its regular maintenance schedule.
