How To Properly Maintain Your Car

June 22, 2019 Auto No Comments

I was so excited when I got my first car. It was all I could think about for the first few weeks. It truly was my baby. However, many would argue that I simply was a horrible mother. To be honest, I would agree with them too- I had no idea how to look after my car. Sure, I’d bring out a bucket of water, some soap and a rag cloth and go at it, but that’s it. You too may be wondering, ‘alright, isn’t that fine’? Wrong! You need to be doing much more, and if you think like that you’re stuck in the same, sinking boat that I was in. Your car deserves the best, and that’s why I wish I had been wiser, and immediately rampaged the internet for information on how to tend to my car’s needs as soon as I brought it home.

Thankfully we live in a digital age where information is readily available. Information that any car owner should yield. Now, you may be wondering what exactly is this valuable information? It’s obviously none other than a guide on how to properly take care and maintain your car. Nope, no more buckets and a hose.

Are you excited? You’re about to be treating your beloved car with the respect it deserves. Let’s talk more about that, shall we?

Get It Sealed Immediately

If I knew about this, this would be the first thing I did when I first got a car, and what’s that? It’s getting a coat of paint protector. If you’re wondering what this is, it’s a layer of ceramic that is coated around your car which acts as extra protection. It helps to prevent the paint getting chipped, scuffed, bleached by the weather. Well,  Wow Car Buffing, is a personal favorite of mine that offers this treatment.

You Need More Than A Bucket

So, it’s time for you to clean your car. But how will you go about doing this? Don’t just depend on water and soap. Oh no. That’s just stage one. After you feel like you’ve thoroughly showered your car. You can move onto the next step, which is polishing it. Wait till the water has completely evaporated and the car looks dry. Once this is achieved, get ready to bring out the polisher. I use a car polisher that comes as a liquid.

I simply rub the vehicle down with a soft cloth in circular motions, then once I’m satisfied with the coat applied, I bring out the big bad polisher and get the job done. This is great to buff out any scuffs on your car and is a go-to for all.

But that’s not all. Oh no. What you next have to do is whip out the wax. Wax needs to be applied via a separate cloth. Make sure to really buff it down. If you’re wondering why its to preserve the effects of the polish.

That’s how you should really be maintaining your car.
