What Exactly Is Car Detailing?
  • If you want to keep your car looking great,
    having it detailed on a regular basis is
    important. Car detailing ensures that your car is
    clean and presentable, and can even enhance the
    function of your automobile. When dirt and debris
    are stuck in certain parts of your car, it can
    impede the function of your automobile. But what
    is car detailing, exactly? Which services should
    you be looking for when you want to have your car
    professionally detailed?

Aspects of Car Detailing
  • Basically, car detailing is a thorough cleaning
    of the inside and outside of your automobile.
    Detailing requires a number of special tools and
    products. The car detailer will often perform
    minor touch-ups to improve the look of your car.
    For instance, if you have a small chip in your
    paint, a detailer will take care of this so you
    wont have to take the car to the body shop.
  • Cleaning and conditioning are some of the main
    components of car detailing. The process gets rid
    of swirls and scratches on the paint so that the
    vehicle looks like you just drove it off the lot.
    The inside of the car is also cleaned and

The Difference Between a Car Wash and Car
  • A car wash will get rid of surface dirt and grime
    on your car. Most car was facilities also have a
    vacuum that you can use for the inside of your
    car. The vacuum is ideal for picking up large
    debris, but doesnt actually clean the carpets
    and interior.
  • For the outside of the car, you can find
    detailers who use special treatments like clay to
    draw out impurities and make your paint job
    shine. Detailers will also buff the car and use
    high-quality wax to make your vehicles exterior

The Cost of Car Detailing
  • A complete detailing of your car can cost
    anywhere from 10 to 40. A car wash usually only
    costs a few bucks. You may find that the cost of
    detailing is worth it once you see the finished
    product. Youll see that detailers have cleaned
    your dashboard and thoroughly cleaned the other
    mirrors and windows in your car. Your tires will
    also get a thorough cleaning. Some car detailers
    also add a light fragrance to your vehicles
    interior as a nice finishing touch.

Looking For the Right Car Detailer
  • As with most businesses, you can find the right
    car detailer by getting referrals. Ask your
    friends and family about the car detailers in
    your area that do the best work. You can also
    search online for car detailers that have gotten
    great reviews. Check to see how long the car
    detailing service has been in business as well.
    This will give you an idea of how skilled the
    staff is at cleaning different types of
    automobiles. Make sure you know whether the car
    detailing business has specific experience in
    cleaning various types of cars, so youll know if
    your vehicle fits into this category. The more
    you know about the detailing business before your
    visit, the more likely you are to visit a
    facility that will give you the results you need.

Car Tinting Tips for Your Vehicle
  • Car tinting can instantly make your vehicle more
    attractive. Some tints make a car look expensive
    and elegant, while others add trendy style to a
    vehicle. Of course, tinting also makes your
    automobile more private, since passersby and
    other drivers wont be able to see into the car.
    Tinting is also great for keeping harmful UV rays
    out of the car. Most quality tints block up to
    99 of UVA and UVB rays, which keeps your skin
    safe and prevent your upholstery from fading. If
    your car is on the road often, tinting can
    definitely come in handy.
  • To choose the right tint for your car, here are
    some tips that will make your selection process

Get Familiar With Window Tints
  • If youre familiar with the types of window tints
    on the market, youll have a better time choosing
    the one you want. Visit a window tinting shop and
    take a look at the various tints available. Ask a
    sales associate to explain the benefits of each
    car tint so you can make an informed choice.

Know Which Tints are Best
  • There are average window tints and there are
    those that belong to the top tier of vehicle
    tints. Consider how much youre willing to spend
    on tints before making your final decision. Top
    tier tints will last longer, but will likely be
    more expensive. High-quality tints are also more
    visually appealing, and youll likely be more
    satisfied with them.

Check Out UV Reflecting Tints
  • While youre in the car and the sun is shining
    into the vehicle, your skin is exposed to the
    suns harmful rays. This could increase your
    chances of developing skin cancer and other
    health conditions. Be sure that youre looking
    for tints that offer high-quality UV protection.
    These types of window tints also prevent the
    suns energy from being trapped in your vehicle,
    which often occurs if the automobile is in the
    sun for an extended period of time.

Be Aware of State Laws
  • Each state has specific laws when it comes to
    window tinting. You dont want to get stopped by
    the cops for window tint that is too dark. Find
    out what is permitted in your state before you
    start the tinting process. Having the tint
    removed to adhere to state laws can be a costly

Hire a Pro
  • Yes, there are window tinting kits that you can
    purchase if youre the DIY type. However, its
    best to have this process done by a professional.
    Youll likely be much happier with the results.
    It will likely cost you more to take your car to
    a tinting shop, but in most cases, its well
    worth it.

Make Sure You Know Where to Tint
  • You should know which parts of the vehicle should
    be tinted, and which shouldnt. For instance, you
    cant tint your side and rear mirrors. However,
    you can use a lighter tint if you prefer. Dark
    tint is not recommended for these windows, since
    the tint will make it difficult for you to see
    while driving. Dark tint should be reserved for
    the side windows, windshield and rear window.

Get Information on Tint Maintenance
  • Finally make sure you know how to keep your tint
    looking its best. Once your tint has been
    installed, wait about three days before you clean
    and roll down your windows. This will ensure that
    the tint is secure and wont roll off. All youll
    need is an ammonia-free cleaner and a soft paper
    towel for cleaning to keep your tint in great

Finding the Best Car Tinting
  • If youve decided to get your car windows tinted,
    there are a few things to consider. Finding the
    right company can give you the insight you need
    when it comes to choosing the right quality of
    tint. Youll also need to know how to care for
    the car tinting once its applied to your
    vehicle. Here are some of the ways you can narrow
    down your choices when youre looking for car
    tint and companies that can get the job done

Choosing the Right Company
  • When youre trying to find a professional company
    for window tinting, try to get information on the
    companys track record. Do they get positive
    reviews online? Have friends or family
    recommended the company to you? Have you seen
    previous work done by the business? All of these
    factors can help you determine whether youll be
    satisfied with your window tinting. Its also a
    good idea to see how long the company has been in
    business. A company with years of experience will
    likely get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Check for Certifications
  • The window tinting company you choose should be
    certified to do business in your state. Make sure
    that you know the laws in your state or region so
    you can find a company that will install tint
    that meets local guidelines. The business you
    select should also have all certifications
    necessary to professionally install window tint.
    This is usually an indication that the company is
    committed to doing quality work.

Search for the Right Features
  • There are several attributes of vehicle tint that
    you should be aware of before you give a company
    your business. If youre looking at several
    styles or tint types for your automobile,
    consider the color or shade of the window tint.
    If your state prohibits certain colors, choose
    from the hues that are in keeping with the laws
    while still expressing your personal style. Check
    to ensure that the tint you want has color
    stability as well. This means that the tint will
    remain in good shape even after being exposed to
    UV rays for years. If the color stability on a
    tint is less than one, youll be able to use it
    for quite some time without replacing it.
  • The clarity of the window tint is important as
    well. You need to be able to see clearly through
    the window tint while driving for safety
    purposes. A tint with low reflection is also
    essential, since it will allow you to see through
    the windows whether youre driving during the day
    or at night. Ask your window tint professional
    about solar control. This is especially important
    if your car gets too hot on the inside. High
    temperature in the car can damage the interior,
    and can be uncomfortable for you and your family.

Design Inspiration
  • Dont be afraid to ask to see before and after
    pictures once youve narrowed your window tinting
    company selection down to a few choices. This
    will give you an accurate idea of how your
    vehicle will look once the tinting job is
    finished. If you like what you see from one
    particular company, it will be easier to decide
    where to take your vehicle for tinting.

What to Look For In a Car Wash
  • You may have heard it said that the way a car
    looks is a reflection of the owner. When you keep
    your car looking like new, youll likely feel
    more confident when driving. Finding a great car
    wash can maintain the look of your car, inside
    and out. Here are a few things to look for when
    youre deciding when car wash will get your

Up-To-Date Equipment
  • Whether you go to a car wash that is automatic or
    you have to wash the car manually, make sure the
    facility has modern equipment. If you want a car
    wash that useless touchless animation, theres a
    good chance you can get a good clean without
    hassle. However, if the equipment is old and worn
    out, your car could come out scratched or
    damaged. You should also know which ingredients
    are being used in the soap and detergents. Some
    chemicals are harsh on car paint and could cause
    rust and take away your cars shiny coat. The
    drying materials used in car washes should also
    be free of granules that can scratch the cars

Stay Dry
  • You may be tempted to simply drive the car to dry
    it after washing. However, this can leave streaks
    of detergent on your car. Debris and particles in
    the air can also mix with the water on your car
    and damage the paint. Choose a car wash with Stay
    Dry to ensure that your car is dry and your paint
    is intact after the wash. If youre using a
    manual carwash, use a microfiber towel to dry
    your car once its washed.

A Clean Facility
  • If you drive up the car wash and see that there
    is litter on the ground or dirt on the equipment,
    chances are your car wont be as clean as you
    want. Check the vacuum hoses to see that they are
    clean and stored properly. Look at the trashcans
    at the facility and check to see if someone
    empties them regularly. If these small issues
    arent taken care of, theres a good chance your
    car wont be taken care of either.

Check For Tire Shine
  • Even though the exterior of your car may be
    squeaky clean, the overall look could be ruined
    if your tires arent shiny. Youll likely pay a
    higher price for this service, but its worth it.
    A minute or two after you drive through the car
    wash, Tire Shine should be applied to the slings
    of your tires. Just make sure the attendant
    doesnt get any on the cars paint.

Do An Inspection
  • After your car has been washed, pull over and
    check it out. Most car enthusiasts say that if
    you go to a quality tunnel wash, youll be about
    80 satisfied with the results. Check to ensure
    there is no soap residue and whether your car is
    dry. Look at the windshields and windows. Check
    to make sure your tires look great. Inspect the
    front bumper to ensure there are no bugs or
    debris. If the car wash passes the test, youve
    found a new place to maintain the pride you have
    in your vehicle.
