Lambency Detailing

It’s the new year and you’ve just received your new car. We get that it can be thrilling and exciting to have your own car finally, but there are things you need to do before driving it out for everyday use and subjecting your new car to environmental conditions.

Besides, your brand new car isn’t actually brand new. It was likely assembled several months before you purchased it and parked at the dealership unprotected, exposed to extreme weather conditions with lots of test drives, road hazards, and debris.

This is why it’s important to protect your new car paint after taking it home – to keep it looking sleek and glossy over the years. With a proper car paint protection system, your car’s factory paintwork can last up to two decades! So, continue reading to find out.

An Inexpensive Way to Protect New Car Paint 

There are several ways to protect your new car paint without going over your budget. This involves giving your new car a quick wash as well as applying a protective finish. Giving it regular maintenance is another inexpensive way to protect your new car paint. Without further ado, let’s find out how these inexpensive ways work.

Quick car wash

The first thing you should do after getting your new car from the dealership is to give it a quick wash to remove countless debris and dirt from the surface. If your car was parked outdoor prior to pick up, it was likely exposed to countless contaminants that can seal into your new car paint.

With a quick water spray that begins from the top to the bottom, it helps to rinse away any loose soils along with dust, pollen, mineral deposits from rainwater, and even car exhaust from passing traffic. You can then lather your car with your preferred car shampoo using a microfibre cloth to remove any dirt or stains. Rinse your car thoroughly and towel dry.

Applying a protective finish

To protect your new car paint, there are several products that you can consider using such as automotive waxes and paint sealants. The first option is quite standard among new car owners because it’s inexpensive and easy to use. It’s also good to use with car polish.

Paint sealants, on the other hand, is a relatively new synthetic technology engineered to cover the clear coat of your paint with a thin protective barrier. Like automotive waxes, paint sealants are easy to apply using a spray or cloth dip process, then buffed out with a microfibre cloth.

Regular maintenance

Other than the above, the best way to protect your new car paint is through regular cleaning and maintenance. This is because no car wax or paint sealant can beat routine washing, waxing, and paint correction.

By giving your car a weekly wash and wax, you’re limiting the chances of damage to your new car paint until your next routine visit to the detailing centre. Now that you’ve learned about the inexpensive ways to protect your new car paint, let’s discuss how you can find the best solution to protect your new car.

 How to Find the Best Solution to Protect New Car Paint? 

1. Do your research

Much like how you would do your research on certain electronic devices before purchasing them, finding the best solution to protect your new car paint also requires some research. This will allow you to understand how various paint protection systems work and their efficacy in maintaining your new car paint.

2. Read the reviews

While doing your research on the internet, you should also read the feedbacks and reviews left by the customers/car owners. This will allow you to get a glimpse of what their products/services are like before you decide on the best paint protection for your new car.

3. Check out local automotive blogs

Automotive blogs exist for a reason – to provide an array of useful information for car owners like you. In some cases, the blogs may promote a certain product/service that’s been proven to protect and maintain new car paint. However, for every blog you read, make sure to take them with a grain of salt because results may vary.

4. Ask for recommendations

Oftentimes finding the best solution to protecting your new car paint is to ask for recommendations from car experts like your car dealer and the likes. This is because car dealers often deal with cars and have the know-how on maintaining certain parts of the car. There’s no harm in asking as well because you’ll never know if you never asked.

5. Pay a visit to auto-detailing centres

With a plethora of auto-detailing centres on the island, it won’t be hard for you to pay a visit to several of them after singling them out on the internet. Some auto-detailing centres like Lambency Detailing encourage car owners to enquire online and/or in-store to get a clearer idea of their products, services, and facility.
