Washing / Clay Barring
The best car wash is going to remove every foreign object from the surface of your car’s paint. All bugs, tar, and dirt should be removed from your vehicle’s paint. But from a detailing perspective, the clearcoat itself requires a deep cleaning to prepare the paint for proper correction and to remove the contamination that has built-up from time spent outside. That’s where clay barring your paint is so important.
Car Paint Polishing
Correcting your paint is all about removing swirls and fine scratches from the clearcoat of your car. Ever looked at your paint under halogen lights and noticed fine spider-web-like scratches in your paint. Those are paint swirls and they are very common, even on new cars. Correcting your paint is all about proper car paint polishing to level and burnish the clearcoat to a very fine level, just like a diamond.
Protecting your car is all about sealing in your vehicle from the attacking elements that we discussed in our page all about how your car is always at war. All of your rubber and plastic panels, both on the inside and out should be protected with substances that provide UV protection, while all of your car’s paint and glass should be protected from multiple layers of quality, durable wax.
Ceramic Paint Coating
Within the past couple of years, a new option for paint protection has become available in the form of ceramic coatings. Over time, wax will break down and require more coatings (about every 3 months). Ceramic Pro is not a paint protection, wax or sealant that will wash away or break down over time. Scientifically speaking, it is a nano-ceramic coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paint and can only be removed through abrasion – NO chemical can dissolve the coating. This permanent adhesion protects against scratches, UV rays, corrosion, heat, and more – not to mention the extreme gloss that Ceramic paint Coating provides!
Paintless Dent Removal
Traditional dent repair fills auto body dents in with paint or body filler, which is then matched to the rest of the vehicle’s exterior. While this process can make a vehicle look as good as new, it doesn’t address the actual dent in a way that is a sustainable, long-term solution. It’s also time-consuming, expensive and can impact the re-sale value of your vehicle. With Paintless Dent Removal, there are no fillers and there is no sanding. PDR is an environmentally friendly repair method that restores your vehicle’s body to factory-like condition in a fraction of the time at a fraction of the cost. PDR can be used to remove dings and dents from vehicles, as well as body creases and hail damage.
The Right Way
We at Lux Detail are obsessed with preventing swirls and fine scratches from forming on your paint. The most common way this paint defect occurs is through improperly washing the vehicle. You simply should not be taking your car to the car wash. They use improper techniques throughout their speedy process to ensure they ruin your car’s paint. It’s important that either a true professional wash your car by hand, or you wash the car yourself the right way.
