For many, the thought of spending well over $250 to detail a car seems faintly ridiculous. Automatic washes charge less than $10. There are also many products available from street retailers (auto part stores) that claim to shine your car to perfection.
The reality is that detailing a car takes time, between 6 and 8 hours in a typical case. The finest of products cannot be found at your local auto superstore. I use a limited edition Swissvax which is $200 a container, and I am liberal with its application. I wash and cleanse the car, from the wheel wells to the windows. I will add at least one deep protective layer of carnauba wax after having re-leveled the paintwork if it is scratched or contaminated.
What’s more, after I have detailed your car, the wax finish resists dirt and pollution far more effectively than normal. Your paintwork is smoother. You can feel the paintwork for yourself with the back of your hand (or use your finger tips through a thin plastic wrapper, like a sandwich bag, if you’re feeling professional).
So washing your car between wax applications (between 3-6 months, depending on mileage and storage factors) takes less time, and the results are spectacular the water will bead like you have never seen before it is absolutely amazing!
Modern luxury and performance cars can cost as much as a small house, yet lose their value quickly if unloved or not cared for. And even the cared-for cars can lose their value if treated incorrectly.
Every time a car is washed with a bucket and sponge, there is a risk that microscopic grains of dirt are being rubbed into the gleaming paintwork, causing swirl marks. I will safeguard your investment: regular treatments ( 3 month maintenance program ) will preserve the quality of your car’s paintwork, ensuring that depreciation is kept to a minimum when you decide to sell it. And, costly re-sprays can be avoided, saving thousands of dollars.
Plus there’s nothing like a swirl free finish to make you fall in love with your car all over again.
