Spring is just around the corner, soon you’ll want to jump in your car and hit the road with the windows down… but will it feel just as good in a dirty car?
A solid spring cleaning whether it be in your home or in your car can generally help remove allergens, give you a clean space, improve mood and definitely give you a sense of satisfaction, but is that all?
Why is a professional interior and exterior detailing important?
Not only is car detailing worth it because it can increase your vehicle’s value, it can also ensure your environment remains clean and germ-free! Here are a few good reasons for auto detailing and why a professional interior and exterior detailing is so important!
Is just a quick handwash enough?
Vehicles are exposed to all elements in the winter and it can wreak havoc on your car. All the road salt, ice, snow and debris that your vehicle was exposed to throughout the winter months is likely hiding out in all the nooks and crannies of your vehicle waiting for an ideal time to creep up and form rust spots over time. To prevent this, a professional hand washing of your vehicle and high-pressure rinsing can help dislodge any dirt and contaminants such as salt, calcium, and other road debris that are the main source of corrosion.
Exterior detailing goes far beyond a surface wash and includes many benefits such as increasing your vehicle’s resale value. With a professional detailing, the application of a high quality seasonal protective wax coating and manual polishing is also done to enhance the appearance of your vehicle’s exterior. This helps eliminate scuffs, residues, and fine scratches, making it look as good as new!
Now for the interior!
If you spend many hours in your car or are on the go all the time, you undoubtedly enjoy a snack or a quick bite in your car every now and again. If you are a parent, it’s likely become a normal part of life for your children to eat a snack or have a juice box in the car but might we remind you that the spilled milk from last week, the dropped crumbs or that little French fry that fell in between your driver seat and the arm rest can be the cause of some harmful germs and bacteria. With vehicles being an enclosed space and with the heat of the sun blaring in your vehicle for a good part of the day, bacteria can grow and spread rather quickly. Winter months tend to bring unpleasant and wet weather, where we walk through water puddles, snow and sludge. Mud, and salt get stuck to our boots and we unknowingly drag it into the car. While we don’t necessarily notice the salt buildup, it’s there and it’s crucial to have it removed. Road salt can seep into the carpet and the crevasses of your vehicle. Overtime, this can create corrosion from the inside. Needless to say, it can be relatively difficult to remove it, especially if it is soaked up in your carpet.
With a professional interior detailing you can expect nothing less than a true deep cleaning of your vehicle. Every part of the interior including all fabrics, seats, carpets, roof, auto glass, wheels, trims, steering wheel and trunk area will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected using an exclusive anti-bacterial, hot-water extraction process that eliminates 99% of germs and bacteria.
Many of us don’t realize the dangers of a dirty car. Surface cleaning is important to remove dirt, dust and other contaminants, but bacteria and fungi can reappear in hidden areas if they are not properly cleaned and disinfected. The benefits of an interior detailing are endless, the overall process can not only help remove stubborn stains, remove unpleasant odours and generally sanitize your vehicle but it can improve safety as well.
