When most of us think of vehicle preventative maintenance, the first things that come to mind are: oil changes, fluid changes, and tire rotations. These maintenance items are very important to maintaining our vehicles for the long term. Vehicles are expensive. On average, people purchase a vehicle once every ten years or so. We do routine and preventative maintenance to keep our vehicles running properly and looking their best. If you neglect to do preventative maintenance, your vehicle may fail mechanically and certainly will not look very good over time. Auto detailing is no different. Frequent detailing will help keep your vehicle looking it’s best, and prevent pre-mature degradation of the interior and exterior surfaces. It can even help to keep the value of your vehicle higher over time. Make it a habit to have your vehicle detailed each time you do an oil change or other preventative service. If you wait until your car looks like it needs to be detailed, you have waited too long. At that point, damage to the surfaces has already began to occur. Once this damage occurs, the vehicle will need repair and restoration; which is expensive and can de-value your vehicle. Remember, preventative maintenance on your vehicle is important for it’s mechanical and cosmetic longevity. Make auto detailing part of your regular maintenance plan. In the long run, your car will look great and maintain it’s value. As always, please contact us if you have any questions.
