Now that you have discovered that your car needs to be detailed, when is the best time and how often should it be detailed? These are excellent questions that not many people know the answer to and are afraid to ask. The number one best time to detail your car is the week you buy it; your car is currently looking it’s best and if you want to preserve the beauty, you should take your car to a detailer for some recommended detail work to keep the luster in your paint.
If you've had your car for some time now, you should get your car detailed once every 4 months to keep your car's exterior in tip-top shape. Every 4 months seems so foolish, why should I spend my money on a detail every 4 months? Well there are many reasons. First off, Spring is a time for pollen and insects to flourish and coming out of winter, you may have road salt on the paint of your car. These simple everyday issues prove hazardous to your paint and can cause permanent damage. Secondly, most waxes have a 3-4 month longevity and once your wax wears off, the elements beat down on your car's paint rather than the wax. Thirdly, if you take your car through free car washes or automated car washes, you are inflicted some damage to your paint whether you know it or not. Towels and car wash brushes put minor scratches, known as swirls, into your paint and most people believe swirls are actually part of the paint job because they are so common in today's cars.
