WHERE EVERY DETAIL COUNTS
On any given day you will undoubtedly see someone either washing their car or getting it washed via an unprofessional person or an automatic car wash. Washing a car is the simplest & perhaps the single most effective way to enhance & maintain a car's appearance & it is the one thing that car enthusiasts do most often. Strikingly the majority of people and places wash cars improperly. While there is no approved way to wash a car, there are a number of wrong ways.
While most people are careful with regular maintenance and tune-ups, car washing can sometimes be overlooked. Weekly car washes can not only make your vehicle look better, but they can also make your vehicle last longer.
Think about it, your wife pays ₹1000 to ₹2000 for 500ml of special shampoo that doesn’t strip her hair of “essential oils”, leaving it dry and brittle etc. The same goes for your paint and its protection (i.e., wax, sealant, resins, synthetic polymers, petroleum distillates = ESSENTIAL OILS for your paint conditioning). If you are extremely fussy about the look and feel of your car, this is not the place to be cheap or misinformed. Poor products and improper wash techniques account for 80-90% of paint issues (marring, fading, dullness, light scratching or “love marks”, and insufficient UV protection etc).
Your clear coat is most susceptible to UV light damage and needs to be protected. That’s what causes your paint to fade and break down over time. Defend your paint by adding layers of protection, NOT REMOVING THEM. Constant unnecessary washings with cheap soaps/shampoos are removing layers of protection that immediately need to be replaced.
At Autosense Car Care, we cover, in detail, how to wash/detail a car so as to minimise the creation of unwanted & unsightly paint swirl marks or cob webbing. Dark-coloured cars, in particular, require utmost care & patience. A properly washed car's paint surface will easily last 1-2 years before requiring a pure polishing step to remove any slight paint imperfections imparted through washing. We want to help our customers properly maintain their vehicles and save money. Not using the proper soap, equipment or technique can do more harm than good.
