6 Ways to Properly Maintain Your Car’s Paint Protection

Lambency Detailing

So you’ve decided to invest in paint protection to maintain your car’s paintwork. That’s a good move because it helps to preserve the original paint while providing your vehicle with an additional layer of protection.

However, you have questions about what’s next, such as how to wash a car with paint protection? How often should you wash it? Is there a technique you can practice to ensure it doesn’t affect the paint protection?

If that’s exactly what you’re thinking about, here are some tips on properly maintaining your car’s paint protection and how to put them to practice.

Tip 1: Wash Your Vehicle Regularly

Now that you have the new car paint protection, you might think you won’t need to wash your car as often as before. On the contrary, washing your vehicle regularly is necessary to maintain the paint protection system.

You will need to wash your vehicle regularly to prevent dirt, dust, and grease from sticking onto the coating, which could damage your car’s paint protection over time.

Tip 2: Be Smart About Cleaning

Washing your newly coated car wouldn’t be a chore if you can be smart about cleaning. This means using the right cleaning tools to maintain your car’s paint protection. Avoid using a high pressure washer to clean your vehicle, as it may damage the coating.

Instead, use a microfibre cloth to wash your car with a dedicated car shampoo. You can ask for a suitable car shampoo recommendation from professional detailers at auto-detailing centres like Lambency Detailing. That way, you can save time and money from scouring the many auto-detailing shops in Singapore.

Tip 3: Avoid Washing Your Car Under Direct Sunlight

Have you ever noticed how most car washes are done in shaded areas? That’s because washing your car under direct sunlight creates heat, which is the ultimate enemy of professional car coatings.

For the best results in maintaining your car’s paint protection, be sure to wash your car under the shade. It’s best to wash your vehicle early in the morning or evening as the sun will be at its lowest.

Tip 4: Immediately Remove Contaminants

Car paint protection coatings such as automotive waxes, ceramic coating, synthetic paint sealants, paint protection flim are not indestructible. They are susceptible to acidic contaminants, such as bird droppings, tree saps, and bug splatters, damaging the coating and reducing its lifespan.

This means you should try to remove any natural contaminants from your car’s paint protection as soon as you can. Try to keep some cleaning tools in your vehicle so that you can instantly remove the contaminants. Remember to blot the contaminants instead of wiping it away to minimise swirls.

Tip 5: Use Detailing Clay

Many professional detailers like us take pride in using the best detailing tools available, including detailing clay. It removes contaminants, overspray, rail dust, and brake dust, leaving your car’s paintwork to feel smooth and sleek.

As such, you can use detailing clay to remove anything that doesn’t belong on your paint protection. However, if you worry that you might damage the film, it’s best to bring your car to your trusted detailing centre to help remove any contaminants on your vehicle.

Tip 6: Routine Maintenance

Besides the aforementioned, frequent cleaning and care is the best approach to preserve the paint protection on your new car. This is because regular washing, waxing, and paint correction outperform any auto wax or paint sealer.

You may reduce the risk of damage to your new car’s paint until your next regular trip to the detailing shop by giving it a weekly wash and wax.
