In order to break this down in the best way possible, we’re going to take a look at both the interior and exterior components of a good car detail. Once you know the components, you can make the decision for yourself whether to detail your car yourself or whether hiring a car detailer to do it for you is the right move. Here’s a look at all the major components of a solid car detail:
Taking Care of the Paint
Obviously paint care is one of the most important components of a car detail. The paint on cars is a delicate thing, and there is a three step process involved in the car detailing process to make sure that the paint is properly taken care of. You’ll want to make sure that your car is properly cleaned on a regular basis to ensure that you keep the paint on it as fresh as possible. Leaving any type of dirt or grime on your car is going to lead to a lot of issues down the road so doing what you can on your own can help you avoid paint problems down the road.
Cleaning of the Wheels and Chassis
Cleaning the wheels and chassis of your car is one of the more time consuming parts of a car detail. It involves cleaning in a lot of spots that can’t naturally be seen without actually looking under your car. Having your wheels and chassis cleaned on a regular basis is something that will help prevent potential rot and cracking from happening. You’ll want to make sure you take care of this step thoroughly as any issues with either the wheel or undercarriage of your car are generally very expensive to fix.
Lights and Exterior Trim
This process includes cleaning and polishing both the headlights and taillights. It also includes making sure that all of the chrome, vinyl, or plastic trim on your car is cleaned and polished well. This component could also include the cleaning and polishing of the exhaust tips. You’ll want to be sure that your LED headlights, taillights and trim are all properly polished and sealed before moving on from this step.
The interior can be an extremely extensive process or it can be a fairly easy one, depending on the type of care that you’ve given to your car. The car detail Melbourne offer services where they clean and shampoo the carpet and seating in your car, although that is something that is fairly easy to do yourself. A lot of what the interior cleaning consists of will depend on what type of surfaces you have on the inside of your car. Obviously a leather interior is going to be a different type of cleaning than if you were to have a regular interior.
