A Car Winter Protection Detail carried out by a professional. If your car is important to you it is essential to give it the best level of protection in winter you possibly can.
Unfortunately, not all vehicles can spend the winter months tucked up in a heated garage, so for those that must brave it out, extra protection when car cleaning is needed to ensure that there are no detrimental effects on the bodywork.
Why does my car need extra protection in winter?
With the cold spells, winter is that time of year when a vehicles bodywork will take a battering from the elements, not to mention the amount of salt and grit applied to the roads. Both rapid changes in temperature and salt can cause irreversible damage to your cars paintwork, causing it to crack and rust.
How will winter detailing protect my car?
The Winter Protection Detail follows along the same lines as the standard Protection Detail but uses two coats of a harder wearing wax. This will provide better long term protection.
It is also advised, that if a maintenance programme is not in place, that arches, especially those that have an internal lip are kept clear of build-up, so that salt does not have time to cause corrosion in unseen places. Many an arch shows signs of rusting through from the inside due to neglect. Winter car detailing allows you to prevent this issue.
Maintaining your vehicle properly will increase your vehicles lifetime, allowing you to enjoy its best look for longer, but also saving you money on your cars depreciation.
