Surprising Things Mobile Vehicle Detailing Services Can Do For Your Vehicle

You know that our mobile vehicle detailing services in Chicago makes your car look like new, but did you know that’s not the only benefit of our services? Check out some of the other (sometimes surprising!) benefits of having your vehicle detailed. If you want to experience these benefits for yourself, simply give our team a call to schedule a mobile detailing appointment.

Did You Know Our Vehicle Detailing Services Can Do All of This?

Helps your car maintain its value.

Vehicles start to depreciate in value the minute you drive them off of the car lot. They devalue faster than almost anything else that you’ll purchase. But one of the ways to ensure you get the most money back out of your vehicle when you go to sell it is to get it detailed regularly. This maintains the beauty of the interior and exterior and increases the vehicle’s resale value. Potential buyers will be clamoring to buy a vehicle that looks as good as yours, meaning you can command a higher price as compared to similar vehicles on the market.

Gets stains out of upholstery and carpets.

It’s so easy to stain the interior of your vehicle. From spilled sodas on the seats to snow melting on the floorboards, it’s almost impossible to keep the interior of a vehicle spotless no matter how hard you try. High-quality vehicle detailing services can remove all of those unsightly stains, though, and restore the appearance of your carpets and seats. Keep in mind that a little wear and tear on carpet is unavoidable due to the friction of your shoes on the carpeting. If the stains can’t be removed and the appearance of the carpets restored, though, a good auto detailer can suggest other options such as replacing or dying the carpeting.

Preserves the paint job.

You’ve probably noticed that over time, your car’s paint job takes a beating. Small rocks, bird droppings, and the intense Chicago weather can all take their toll on your paint job. Eventually, the paint can become chipped and faded and drastically affect the appearance (and value) of your vehicle. Regular mobile vehicle detailing services can help address minor issues in the paint before they become big problems and prevent problems from happening in the first place. With regular waxing and a fresh clear coat periodically, your paint job can stay looking like new for much longer. You can extend the benefits by doing your own waxing at home between detailing appointments.

Reduces allergens in the vehicle.

Are you someone who suffers from allergies? You car could be making those problems worse. Your car is filled with allergens that are blown in through the air vents and tracked in on your shoes and clothes. The interior is the perfect environment to hold all of those allergens, too, with carpet and seat fibers to bury themselves into until you brush against them and release them back into the air. Having your vehicle deep cleaned periodically can actually help reduce allergen levels so you are breathing easier.

Helps you make a great first impression.

Let’s face it: a clean car makes a good first impression. If you’ve ever climbed into someone’s ride and had to move a pile of fast food cups out of the way, you know what kind of impression that made on you. Whether it’s your boss, your mom, or a date, rolling up in a gorgeous vehicle that’s spotless inside and out is going to make a great impression on them. That kind of street cred is worth a little investment.

How to Make Your Car Detailing Last

Love the look of your car after a good, full car detail? Not only does it smell great, but it looks and feels totally new, too. You’ll want to keep that just-detailed look going for as long as possible. Here are some tips from our car detailing team in Chicago about how to extend the life of your detailing work for as long as possible.

Tips to Make Your Full Car Detail Last Longer

Keep a microfiber cloth in your car.

Microfiber cloths are a super handy item to keep in your car. They are useful for cleaning up accidental spills and wiping down the dashboard to help keep it dust-free. Even more importantly, though, they are ideal to use for drying off your car after a Chicago rainstorm. The microfiber material will soak up all of the raindrops so there are no water spots left behind. The best part? You can pick up a pack of a dozen microfiber cloths for just a few bucks.

Use the right products for maintenance.

One of the most important things you can do for your vehicle when it comes to maintaining it after it has been detailed is to make sure you are using the right products for the maintenance work. A lot of people think that dish soap is the best thing to use for washing your car; if you use it, though, you’ll end up needing a detailing job much sooner as it can strip off the clear coat and wax faster. Talk to your detailing technician about what products they recommend for use on your vehicle. You’ll want a good wax, leather condition, and all-purpose cleaning at the very minimum.

Keep the vehicle waxed.

Waxing is so important to the appearance of your vehicle and yet so few people take the time to do it. Invest in a good car wax and apply it to your vehicle at least every four months (or more often if you notice water is no longer beading on the surface). Wax acts like a protective layer to your vehicle, helping repel water and other substances while protecting the clear coat and paint underneath. Once you start waxing regularly you’ll notice a big difference in the appearance of your car. It’ll look like you recently had a full car detail every day.

Condition leather interiors regularly.

The leather interior of your vehicle is something you can’t afford to ignore. If you do, you could end up with cracked, torn, and worn out leather that’s going to be expensive to repair. Simply condition the leather regularly with a good leather conditioning product. Talk to your car detailing professional for their recommendation. Simply rub a small amount of the conditioner onto the leather with a microfiber cloth and then allow it to dry. It will keep the leather feeling supple and looking brand new for longer.

 

Enforce a no-eating rule.

One of the best parts of getting your car back after a full car detail is that all those little crumbs have disappeared from the interior. You can enjoy that feeling all the time by preventing those crumbs from getting into your vehicle in the first place. Set and enforce a “no eating” rule in your car. It might be a tough one if you have children, but it could actually be a benefit to your health (and your safety) if you stick to it. That way those crumbs don’t get into your seats, floorboards, and dashboard and you can go longer between deep cleanings.
