Automotive reconditioning Protect your paint
We invest a lot of ourselves in our cars, both emotionally and financially. They represent our style, confidence, and appearance to the outside world. It is essential to protect your paint on any vehicle, as it adds to the beauty and resale value.
Therefore, there are steps you can take today to ensure you get as much as possible when you sell or trade in your car.
To protect your paint, be sure to have your car waxed regularly. Waxing will protect your paint from environmental conditions, such as pollution and sun exposure. This is especially important if you live near salt water or in a salty atmosphere. Salt can cause your car’s paint to decline, streak, and become dull and lifeless.
The wax protects your paint by providing a barrier. For the best job, you must hire a professional and it should be done every three months to be effective. Driving your car through the car wash with the waxing cycle does not penetrate deeply enough to leave a viable barrier. Watch the luster of the car and if it begins to fade or the paint shows cracking have the car waxed more often. Some people apply a clear coat protectant thing that the car does not require waxing. This is not correct. Keep in mind that you are trying to preserve and protect your paint for the life of the car.
The sun’s UVA rays are another source of paint trouble. The sun not only damages our skin, but the outer skin of your vehicle as well. The factory paint finish reacts to the heat and expands. This lets more humidity, moisture, grime, and dust accumulates within the pores.
In addition, clean off bird droppings as soon as they happen to protect your paint. Bird droppings contain harsh chemicals that can significantly damage your vehicle’s paint. Primarily, higher acid concentration undermines the paint’s integrity.
So, whether your care is a classic, covered in a thick layer of dust in your grandfather’s old barn or you sleuthed your way through car auctions, protect your paint with professional work from Automotive Reconditioning Services.
