: How often should I wash my car?
A: Whenever it gets dirty! The longer the dirt is allowed to sit on a car, the more it is able to penetrate the wax or sealer and starts eating the paint. Dirt also acts as an abrasive when objects brush against your car, increasing the chance for scratches. A good rule of thumb is to wash your car once every 1-2 weeks.
Q: How often should I wax my car?
A: An express wax lasts 3-4 weeks, a quality Carnauba Wax lasts about one to two months, and a quality paint sealer will last 4-6 months or more (depending on conditions.) Dark or red colored cars or those used for commuting should be protected more often.
Q: Do I need an appointment for detail services?
A: No, we welcome walk-in's, but an appointment will allow us to give your car priority when performing detail services.
Q: What's the best way to protect my car's finish?
A: A modern polymer paint sealant is the best way to protect your car's finish. For years, Carnauba wax was the gold standard for paint protection, and Carnauba wax does give a deep shine to your vehicle. However, Carnauba wax only lasts for about two months. A polymer paint sealant provides an interlocking layer of proctection for your car's finish. A paint sealant makes your car look great, and will last six months or more. If you have a show car you might want to consider a paint sealant for protection, with a layer of Carnauba wax to bring out a deeper shine.
Q: I've heard of "Clay Magic
" treatment. What is that?
A: Clay Magic
is the latest advancement in car care technology. If your paint has been unprotected, dirt and pollutants get stuck in the the pores of your paint. Clay Magic
is wiped over the surface of your car with a lubricant. The clay extracts all of the dirt and leaves the pores of your paint clean and ready for paint sealant or wax.
After a car us washed it's amazing to see the amount of dirt Clay Magic
will pull out of the car's finish. Ask a Wash 'N' Go detail technician for a demonstration on your car.
