If you’ve invested in a luxury car then you probably like to keep it in the best possible condition. Simply cleaning your car with a bucket and sponge isn’t enough if you want it to keep looking like it’s fresh out of the showroom. Luxury cars need a fair amount of care and attention to keep their value, and this is often a job that is best left to professionals. Sure, you can grab a bucket and a sponge and give your car a quick wash from time to time, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, you may do more harm than good. This is also true when it comes to interior car detailing. Although you can hoover the interior of your car and wipe down the surfaces if it’s the “fresh out of the showroom” feel that you want then you should probably leave interior detailing to someone that knows what they’re doing.
Why interior car detailing isn’t a DIY job
Luxury vehicles require a lot of care and precision during the manufacturing process. Creating a car for the luxury market is a much more detailed process than creating your average hatchback. It takes teams of people a considerable amount of time to ensure that the car leaves the factory looking exactly as it should. This also means that the car must pass strict quality control regulations, some of these will be based around the appearance of the car. Before your luxury vehicle even hits the showroom it will endure a rigorous detailing process where it will be treated with a number of different products to ensure it is in the best possible condition. A team of specialists will ensure that your vehicle passes all of the quality checks in terms of detailing before it can be put on display.
If you think about the process that your luxury vehicle goes through before it is even driven out on the open road and exposed to the elements, then you’ll see why detailing isn’t something that you should try and do yourself. Interior car detailing requires a number of specialist tools and products to be done correctly, it is fairly unlikely that you have these lying around in your garage. If you want your car to be protected from the wear and tear that comes with regular use then you’ll need professional products that are designed to keep it looking as if it’s just left the showroom. Buying these products can be very expensive, and using them requires knowledge and training to avoid doing any damage to the surfaces and paint job.
Risks of DIY jobs
Trying to detail your luxury vehicle yourself or take on any car paint correction jobs can end in disastrous results. Going about these tasks yourself may mean you’ll need to take it to a professional to fix the damage that you’ve caused, which leads to unnecessary expense. Attempting these tasks yourself before selling your car may also devalue it and buyers may be put off by shoddy DIY work. You should never attempt to use car detailing products or paint products without the proper knowledge as these can cause damage to your existing paintwork. If you have a custom paint job then this can be an even bigger deal if you do cause any damage.
