Our Top Tips for Maintaining Your Vehicle Between Professional Detailings

To keep your vehicle in the best possible condition, many experts advise booking professional detailings every four to six months, depending on the mileage you clock up, the environments you drive in and how you store your vehicle.

Even though detailing should always be left to the professionals who can use their years of expertise, extensive knowledge and top-tier products and tools, that isn’t to say that you should neglect all cleaning and maintenance between professional detailings, especially if you want to upkeep the shiny finish post-detailing.

On this page, you will find three top car cleaning tips to ensure your vehicle reaches professional mobile car detailing teams in the best possible condition.

Our Top Tips for Maintaining Your Vehicle Between Professional Detailings

1. Clean Exterior Glass Weekly

Paying attention to the exterior glass on your vehicle is one of the major distinctions of your car looking clean and fresh off the forecourt. Cleaning exterior glass weekly is the first on our list of top car cleaning tips as the benefits are twofold. Firstly, it will drastically improve the appearance of your car. Secondly, it will make your vehicle much safer to drive. Always use a high-quality glass spray product, and don’t forget to ensure the windscreen wipers are clean to prevent glass smears.

2. Hoover and Wipe Down the Interior Every Two Weeks

If you keep on top of your interior maintenance, it should take you no longer than 15 minutes to quickly go over your seats, mats, carpets, and surfaces. Hoover all upholstery, preferably with a car nozzle attached to your vacuum. Then go over your dashboard and other hard surfaces with a microfibre towel that is lightly damp to prevent spreading around dust. It should go without saying that all spillages should be dealt with as soon as possible to avoid stained upholstery.

3. Washing the Exterior Paint and Alloys Every Two Weeks

Though it may be tempting as a time-saving option, always manually wash your car every two weeks instead of taking it to an automatic car wash, which can easily damage the interior of your car. By regularly washing your car every two weeks, you will remove mud and dust, which are fairly easy to eliminate; you will also remove contaminants, such as tree sap, water stains, tar, and dried bugs that can make your exterior feel rough to the touch. Over time, these contaminants will corrode your paintwork and leave it dull. Cleaning your exterior at least every two weeks is the best way to prevent the build-up.
