Nothing looks worse on the road than a car with rust spots all over the exterior. The paint job of any car will last for a given number of years, but the elements will take their toll. It isn’t just salt from winter driving; dust and gravel during the warm months can do some damage to the car as well. Sun, droppings from birds, and any air pollutants can also cause harm to the paint. We are starting to head towards snow time once again and that can challenge the car paint. Detail work or a waxing can do a lot to protect the paint from the elements.

Bead Test

Waxing is more than just bringing out the best features of the exterior color. A good car wax is going to create some protective film for the paint. It serves as a barrier between the elements and the color underneath. It makes sense to check exterior conditions before waxing the car. Automobile professionals recommend what is known as a bead test. All it takes is throwing some water on the surface of the car. If the water beads into small pockets, then there’s no need to do any waxing. Large beads of water do suggest that a wax job would be helpful.

Proper way of waxing

The car should be prepped in anticipation of being waxed. This means washing the car, and then allowing it to dry. There may be some areas on the surface where dirt or debris is hardened. An auto body cleaner that is nonabrasive can be used to clean those areas of the waxing. Many car washes offer a wax job as an additional service. If you have decided to do the work yourself, be sure to use a dry cloth. The wax needs to be applied in a circular motion and is best done in a shaded area away from the sun. There is no need to use a lot of wax; a small amount is just fine.

Importance of detailing

Detailing can accomplish the same protection for the paint job. It does go little bit beyond waxing, and can be considered fairly good restorative work. A car is going to get its fair share of scratches and dents over time. Detailing work takes care of pounding out dents that could be deposits for salt a corrosive material. Scratches can be minor or major, but in either case might need a little paint to correct. In the process of doing a buffing job, a car owner may accidentally create swirl marks. This is going to need very careful polishing in order to get rid of any of scratches. Detailing can be a do-it-yourself project depending on what has to be done. However, if you lack the time or the expertise taking the car in for professional detailing job is an excellent alternative.

A car should be waxed no more than once every three months. At the same time, if there is a chance of very harsh weather for extended periods, then a car waxing may have to be done more frequently. Those car owners who live in snow belts should expect to do one or two car waxings during the winter. This will adequately protect the paint from road salt or sand. In addition to any icy rain. The car owner must know the paint also will be a protective barrier for metal underneath the car. Detailing can be used to take care of any deposits of debris in the wheel wells and also the chassis work.

Benefits of waxing & detailing

Something else to consider when it comes to waxing in detail. Both will extend the life and gloss of that paint job your car has. It also can help in the resale value of the automobile. Rust is something that will cause the price to drop. It is recommended that detailing work be done prior to the sale of any vehicle. You need to have your car looking its very best for a prospective buyer. The benefit in the coming months obviously is the protection against ice, salt, and road sand. Pay attention to the body of the car with waxing and detailing will help you make it through the winter. The coming of April can have your car looking as good as it did when you first purchased it.

How to Quickly and Safely Remove Bird Droppings

cleaning hood of car

You just cleaned your car. You washed, dried, and waxed the outside, vacuumed and wiped down the inside, and even scrubbed the rims. You take it for a spin to the grocery store, but when you come back to your car, there’s a large white smudge on the hood from a fly-by attack.

 

Bird droppings are not only visually appealing, but they can also damage the paint on your car. Bird droppings are acidic, meaning that when they land on your car’s surface, they can begin to burn the paint and the protective coating. The longer the bird droppings remain, the greater the damage, so the most important thing to remember is that time is of the essence. We’ve put together a few tips to help you get rid of bird droppings and save the paint on your car!

 

Specialized Wipes

There are wipes designed to remove bird poop from cars. They contain a blend of chemicals that will neutralise the droppings and stop them from damaging your paint.

 

Club Soda

Club soda not only helps remove stains from clothes, but it also can clean bird droppings off of a car’s paint. Spray some on the affected area, leave it for a few minutes, then rinse away with water.

 

If you’re not “lucky” enough to catch the droppings while they’re still fresh, it may take you a few extra steps to remove them. DO NOT try to scrape away at the droppings as this can cause damage to the paint on your car. Follow these steps to remove the droppings.

  1. Soften with Liquid – Soak a cloth in water or club soda and place it on the droppings for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Gently Remove the Droppings – Remove the cloth and spray the droppings with more water. Let it sit for a few seconds and then wipe the area with a clean cloth. You should apply firm pressure but don’t scrub.
  3. Rinse Area Thoroughly – Rinse the area well with clean water and then use a dry cloth to prevent streaks or watermarks.

Why Should I Have My Car Detailed?

There are many reasons to detail a car, but not all of them are cosmetic. Having your car detailed can also create a safer driving experience and extend its life. If you’re on the fence of deciding whether to get your car detailed, here’s a few reasons that may put you over the edge!
car detailing

Paint Health

The proper cleaning of the outside of a car can greatly extend the life of the paint. The paint on a car is not only for looks, it also protects the metal underneath. When the paint is chipped or worn away, moisture can then reach the metal frame, causing rust and corrosion to occur.

Improved Lighting

Headlights and taillights are only effective if they are clean and free of damage. Even small amounts of dirt and grime on your lights can cause major visibility issues.

Wheels and Tires

Dirt, oil and brake dust are frequently encountered during driving. These can have a negative effect on your wheels and tires. Cleaning the wheels will not only keep them looking great, but also reduce the risk of failure due to corrosion or cracks in the sidewalls.

Interior Condition

Having a messy car is not only disgusting and unappealing, but it can also be very unsafe. If you have trash on the floor of your car, it could get caught under the pedals, causing an unsafe driving experience. Cleaning the interior of your car can also protect the surfaces from wearing down, fading and discoloration.

Having your car detailed has many benefits, including improving the look of it and also making it safer to drive. If you’re looking to have your car detailed, call Bill’s Detailing Service today! 781-341-2621
