Detailing Tips

  • Weekly washing is best whether from a professional detailing service like B&B or doing it yourself. Contaminants can quickly do serious long term damage to paint if they are allowed to remain for too long. Two such contaminants that are virtually impossible to avoid if you drive your vehicle are bug remains and bird droppings. These organic hazards contain complex proteins that bond to the surface and acids that penetrate and break down the surface, eating into your clear coat if not removed promptly. Weak spots in the clear coat make your vehicle vulnerable to corrosion and discoloration.
  • Another common problem contaminant is brake dust. It contains metal shavings from the rotors and adhesives used in the production of brake pads. Brake dust itself is highly corrosive and very sticky. Washing your vehicle weekly will remove these contaminants before they have the opportunity to do unsightly, permanent damage.
  • Never wash in direct sunlight. Pick a shady spot.
  • Wash the wheels and tires first. If you splash wheel cleaners or dirt onto your vehicle, you can simply wash it off as you wash your vehicle. Use a cleaner that is safe for all wheels.
  • Use two buckets. Fill one bucket with soapy water and fill the other with clean water. Each time you’re ready to reload your sponge with soapy water, dip it in the clean water first, to rinse out the grit and contamination you’ve just removed from your vehicle. Then dip it in the soapy water and continue washing.

 

  • It’s very important to choose tools that are gentle on the paint, yet still effective at removing contamination. As a rule of thumb, sponges and mitts that are plush or have a deep nap are better than flat weave towels or dense sponges.

 

  • Never skip drying! Drying your vehicle after washing is necessary to prevent water spots. Water spots are caused by mineral deposits that etch the outline of a drop of water into your vehicle’s paint. All water has minerals, whether it’s from the hose or the sky. As the water evaporates, the minerals remain on the surface and they will eventually, invariably create water spots. When drying begin with your windows and mirrors.
