How To Protect Your Vehicle

Your car is one of your biggest investments, which is why it’s so important to understand how to protect your vehicle. This guide to car exterior and interior protection will review the best tips to keeping your car looking brand-new inside and out!

Wash Your Car with Quality Products
One of the most important things you can do for your car is to wash your vehicle with quality products. While washing the vehicle itself is vital to taking care of the paint, doing it properly is almost more important.

You really want to avoid abrasive materials like sponges and rags since this can deteriorate the finish of your vehicle and cause micro-scratches. Instead, choose materials like microfiber cloths that will get the job done without damaging the exterior!

It can be tempting to take the easy way out and go through a drive-thru car wash – but this can be more harmful than good! You need a lot more than just soap and water to keep your car’s paint protected and glossy, including high-quality products and the technical expertise in their application. At Image Perfection, we offer a liquid diamond ceramic coating that protects your car against colour fading, acid rain, tree sap, oxidation, and corrosion just to name a few. This product offers extreme shine and protection and is backed by an extensive warranty.

The interior of your vehicle also requires a specific set of quality products to be maintained. When you hire someone to detail your car, you want to make sure they are using the best fabric products so that your vehicle gets a thorough clean and stays protected against spills, dirt and fading. At Image Perfection, we only use the best quality products on the market. For example, for leather interiors, we use Always Dry Leather Pro-Tech which penetrates deep into the leather leaving it both clean and restored. For fabric interiors, we use another Always Dry product called Fabric Pro-Tech which protects all types of fabrics from water and oil-based stains.

Consider Where You Park
Another way to protect your car is to consider where you are parking it. This vital step can make a significant difference when taking care of your vehicle’s paint job!

When possible, do your best to park under cover – especially if your car will be sitting there for an extended period of time. Whether it is a covered parking structure, in your garage, or under a shady area, parking your vehicle in a protected space can make a big difference to its exterior.

Parking in a shaded area allows you to avoid unnecessary dust, dirt, pollen, and other paint irritants like bird (or bat!) droppings that can be highly corrosive to your cars paint. Also, harsh UV rays can really contribute negatively to your car’s paint, causing it to fade, bubble or even crack. Once your car’s paint has cracked and the skeleton of your car is exposed to water, it can lead to rust which can be costly to repair. However, take caution when parking under trees for shade as they can drop sticky residue on your car that can be hard to remove or worse, soften its clear protective coating.

Avoid Dust and Dirt
Like we mentioned above, you should do your best to avoid letting dust and dirt accumulate on your vehicle which is why cleaning it thoroughly and carefully is so important.
