Car Polish Singapore: How to Polish a Car Like a Pro

Lambency Detailing

So, you’ve got your first car, a new one at that and you probably know all the basics of maintaining your car – regular interior and exterior wash, regular servicing, etc. But did you know that to maintain the original paintwork and shine, you need to polish the exterior regularly?

You see, dirt and water splashes that stick to your car’s body are the main enemies of your car’s paintwork. They can make the paint fade due to certain chemical processes. Not only that, but they can also alter the appearance of your car’s paintwork, especially bird droppings.

Hence, the need to regularly wash your car but that’s not enough to restore the shine to your car. After washing the exterior, you’ll need to polish it so that it looks great always. In this article, we explore car polishing and the steps for you to polish your car like a pro.

 Car Polish Singapore

Car polishing is one of the techniques applied by car polish Singapore service providers to maintain a car’s paintwork. The goal of this technique is to ensure that the car paint remains clean, well-maintained, and free from defects and scratches. 

Different from your regular car washing technique whereby the steps involve washing, shampooing, rinsing, and drying the car’s exterior, car polishing requires several steps and special techniques for maximum results.

Aside from maintaining your car’s original paintwork, car polishing also allows for easier maintenance as you just need to water your car to remove all the dirt and stains. This reduces the need for car shampoo. 

Moreover, getting your car polished will provide surface protection to the paint. The correct car polishing process will coat the paint with a protective surface that works like taro leaves. Water splashes and stains won’t be able to penetrate the paint easily.

Not only that but polishing your car can help slow down the ageing of your paintwork. Much like how your house paint will fade over time, your car paint can age from UV rays, especially as Singapore has a tropical climate. By giving your car paint the protection it needs, it’ll last longer than usual.


Types of Car Polish

When it comes to car polish, there are many types available on the market. For new car owners like you, you must understand the type of car polish and know which one to apply to your car’s exterior so that you can maintain your car’s original paintwork. Here are the types of car polishes:

  • Compounds are the most abrasive type of polish and are used to correct deep scratches, severe swirls, and to work on neglected paint. They usually leave behind some markings and should be followed up by a finer polish.
  • Cutting polishes are used to correct moderate imperfections in a car’s paint. They give most paint jobs a decent finish, but it’s usually followed up with a finishing polish.
  • Finishing polishes are the least abrasive car polish and are used to correct mild imperfections such as swirl marks. They give paint jobs a clean, glossy look.
  • All in Ones (AIO) are polishes that allow you to polish your car in one step. Some are non-abrasive while others have varying proportions of micro-abrasives.

Now that you’ve learned about the basics of car polishing, it’s time to equip yourself with some easy steps to polishing your car at home like a pro.

Easy Steps on Car Polishing

Getting your car polished at a car salon during a pandemic like now can be risky, but with our easy steps on car polishing, you can do your car polishing at home. Before you start to polish your car, there are some things you need to do to achieve the desired results.


Washing your car

Before you can polish your car, you must first wash your car so that the surface is clean from dirt. If you polish your car when it’s still dirty, the dirt that’s stuck on your car will potentially cause scratches during the polishing process.


Drying your car

Make sure to dry your car after washing it. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe the surfaces as the material won’t damage the paint. Also, the water absorption rate of microfiber cloth is higher than that of ordinary cloths.


Prepare car polishing tools

While waiting for your car to air-dry after all the drying, you can prepare car polishing tools that fit your car. For maximum results, use a soft or medium compound and ensure that there’s no dust attached.

If you don’t have car polishing tools, you can still polish the surfaces using a microfiber cloth. Rub the car polish liquid a little at a time until it’s evenly distributed, then use the cloth to polish your car. Polish your car in circling motions to get maximum results. 

Meanwhile, if you have a polishing tool, the process will be faster and shorter than the manual method. Rub the car polish liquid a little at a time until it’s evenly distributed, then use the car polishing tool to do the rest of the process. Gradually increase the speed of your polishing tool and make sure that it’s completely perpendicular to your car surface. Otherwise, it’ll erode the surface.

Also, there you have it – our three simple steps to polishing your car at home like a pro. Make sure to follow the steps closely for maximum results.
