Why detail my car? All it takes is a few weeks of driving these city streets and highways to lose that showroom shine. Lets not mention what carpools with the Little League team will do to the new car smell. No matter whether your vehicle is new or years old, Red Clay Detailing can reintroduce you to luxury driving.
How does it feel driving a clean car or truck? That is not a placebo. Clean paitn helps with the vehicles aerodynamics. You are not sitting in a cluttered metal container breathing smelly air for hours. Unfortunately very few people have there vehicles detailed on a regular basis or at all. After your first detail, you will quickly become addicted to riding in a clean, “like-new” vehicle all the time.
Furthermore, auto detailing and paint correction are the most cost-effective ways to protect your long-term automotive investment. They guarantee a higher value when you are ready to sell or trade-in your car, truck, or SUV.
Here are some popular detailing myths and why detailing can be a benefit:
My Car is New. I Don’t Need a Detail
New cars do not roll off the showroom floor completely flawless. Whether straight from the manufacturer or the dealer lot, your new car has been manhandled by delivery personnel, service techs, salespeople, and potential buyers.
Also, your new vehicle has been exposed to railroad dust, highway freight contamination, and pollution. It has been sitting in storage lockers and on outdoor lots near waterside docks, railway stations, and other industrial areas.
Sure, the dealership cleans it up for you and gets it shining. However many dealerships do not employ a professional detailer who knows anything about automotive paint or how to properly buff out a shine. Often, the result is little more than a quick car wash with swirl marks, holograms, and even light scratches.
Detailing is Just an Expensive Car Wash
Absolutely not! At the average car wash, you get little more than a superficial rinsing. Some car washes use abrasive textiles that leave fine scratches, which build up over time and dull your new paint. For an extra $10, you might get a worker to quick-vac your carpet, dust off your dashboard, wipe down your steering wheel, and spray some air freshener, All they are really doing is displacing surface dirt and covering up any odors rather than removing the bacteria that causes them.
Red Clay Detailing thoroughly cleans and reconditions your automobile inside and out. The goal is to revive, restore, maintain, and protect both the interior and exterior of your vehicle to as close as possible to showroom condition.
To add, washing is the first of many steps in the detailing process, starting with a hand wash with pH balanced soap. Bugs and tar are removed from the surface. Following the wash is an exterior inspection noting potential issues like etching from bird droppings, bug splatter, and sap.
Regularly detailing your vehicle helps maintain the maximum value. Have you ever bought a dirty car?

My car is old. The paint is dull. I need a paint job.

Dull paint cannot be washed off or even buffed to a shine without highly advanced detailing techniques like clay bar to clean the paint. Then, that is followed by a multistage paint correction using abrasives and a buffer.
