5 Reasons to Have Your Car Detailed Regularly

Car detailing is much more than just a car wash. This deep clean is done by hand and covers both the interior and exterior. Exterior services include wash, polish and wax, while interior services include vacuuming, steam cleaning, glass cleaning and stain removal. But you’re busy – you don’t have time to do this yourself or even drop your car off for the day to have a professional do it.

That’s why it’s a great idea to have DTW parking valets handle car detailing while you’re away. Here are five reasons why you should have your car detailed regularly.

1.  Regular Car Detailing Protects Your Investment

You spent a lot of money on your vehicle. It’s understandable you want to keep it looking new for as long as possible so you get a long service life out of it. Detailing is like any other type of maintenance, performed to prevent rusting and damage to the paint, prevent plastics from fading, and minimize interior wear. Your car will last longer and bring you more value if it’s cared for on a regular basis. 

2.     Regular Car Detailing Increases the Resale Value

A vehicle that is properly cared for will get you more money when you go to sell it than a car that was not. Upon viewing your cared-for car, potential buyers will see the work you’ve put into it and know that if it looks this good on the outside, you must have put in the work to ensure the inner workings were well cared for too.  

3.     Regular Car Detailing Increases Safety

Glass coatings can improve visibility and performance when driving in wet weather, as the water beads off the glass so you can see better. The wipers also perform better on a coated windshield. As you may know, headlights fade, fog up and get yellowed over time thanks to the wear of UV coatings that make your lenses cloudy. This limits the amount of light they can produce at night. When you get a headlight coating or restoration, this improves nighttime driving safety.

4.     Regular Car Detailing Prevents Odors

Interior odors can be removed with car detailing, with a fresh scent left in its place. There are many things that contribute to odors in a car, such as lotions that are transferred from your skin to interior surfaces, fast food consumed in the vehicle, perfumes, pets, smoking, and dust and dirt from outside. Odor buildup can be removed with regular vacuuming, scrubbing and odor freshener application. As a side benefit, car detailing can also remove the allergens that often come with these odors, such as pet dander that can irritate allergies.

5.  Regular Car Detailing Makes You Look Professional

If your career relies on a professional demeanor, you need a clean car at all times. A customer’s first impression can mean the difference between landing a job, project or client, and missing out on a big opportunity. A clean vehicle puts forth an air of confidence which the client will equate with professional, organized and timely service.
