Your car paint job is easy to maintain and preserve
(NC) – Proper care of your car's exterior finish is something that can be easily overlooked, but shouldn't be ignored. The paint job is highly visible, and also very expensive to repair.
“Your car's paint job is one of its most noticeable features and really exemplifies how you maintain your vehicle,” says David Lambert, the brand manager at Autoglym Canada. “If you want to ensure that your car stays at its best, vehicle owners should take the time to regularly wash, polish, and protect their vehicle with the right tools and products.”
Autoglym gives us the following tips on how to maintain the perfect shine:
Step 1 – Wash
Wash your car regularly; doing so will help to preserve the finish of your car's paintwork. Avoid household detergents as they can have a dulling effect on your paintwork. Instead, use a product designed for car washing, like Autoglym Bodywork Wash & Wax.
Step 2 – Polish
Many of us tend to skip the polishing step and go straight to waxing. Don't make this common mistake. Polishing not only corrects paintwork and rectifies imperfections such as light scratches and swirl marks, but it also restores colour and shine.
Step 3 – Protect
Waxing is an important final touch to protect your car's paintwork against harmful environmental factors such as bird droppings and sap. Unlike polish, wax contains no cleaning or restoring agents and should be used to seal in the result achieved from polishing: clean, dry, blemish-free paintwork.
