Regular washing, cleaning and detailing all kinds of vehicles are essential not only to maintain their appearance but also to conserve their performance in long run. All auto owners want to enjoy the comfortable drive in every season. To keep vehicles functional and available at the time of need, complete detailing is an essential activity. It has to be performed at least seasonally or after excessive exposure to severe environmental condition and excessive use.
Irrespective of the kind of automobile, detailing process typically involves deep cleaning of interior and exterior. However, detail steps and product requirements depend on the type. You can’t use same methods and products used for average cars. Only a luxury auto detailing vendor can use right products and methods to offer BMW service in Dubai.
Below I am sharing five reasons you must avoid whether you are detailing your luxury car on your own or at professional car wash center.
Washing vehicle in outdoors
Automobiles must not wash in outdoors. Standard auto care facilities always have an enclosed washing area. Direct sunlight and open air environment are harmful not only for the exterior body but also make washing process difficult. Sunlight air dries water and cleaner quickly before the body is washed and cleaned properly. This leaves water spots and swirl marks on the body. In case you are compelled to wash car under direct sunlight due to unavailability of covered area, keep spraying water to cool the surface.
Using same cloth for different products
Detailing process involves application of several products like the cleaner, polish, wax and rubbing materials to remove rust and minor scratches. Don’t use same cloth or applicator for all products. Use of same cloth builds up product residues over the body, which also contaminate next product and reduce its capability to perform its function. For example applying wax with the same cloth you have already used to wipe off the cleaner will pollute wax and affect its capability to develop lustrous layer. In simple words, use of the same applicator throughout the process push the dirt back on the surface, instead of picking it up.
Using ordinary towels to clean remaining residues of dirt
Whether you are cleaning exterior body or interiors; always aim to completely clean all the dirt and grime. In case few of the residues remain on the surface, never try an old piece of ordinary towel to clean it. The old towel will set in the dust particles instead of removing them from the surface. Excessive rubbing with an old towel can even chip off the paint and produce scratches. Always select high-quality dusters or microfiber cloth.
Applying wax and polish directly on the surface
Never pour wax and polish directly on the vehicle surface. As these products are tending to bind quickly, direct pouring produces dark and uneven streaks. This can be prevented by using a proper applicator. Applying compounds like wax and polishes with the help of applicator also protect you excessive application. Excessive use of the product doesn’t mean to give more shine. It has to be wiped off to perform its function accurately. Maximum two rounds of wax and polish coating are enough to make body shiny.
Using wrong cleaning product
Automobiles are made up of various kinds of materials like metal, plastic, rubber, glass, leather and fabric. When choosing a cleaner to keep these differences in your mind. If you use soap made for exteriors for interiors, you are actually destroying your vehicle. Instead of cleaning it will develop mildew. Similarly using a greasy cleaner on the dashboard will leave greasy residues on the surface. Greasy residues cause not only reflection but also trap heat, which produces cracks.
