How to keep your car interior clean

Posted Posted in Blog

You love your car and take pride in your ride. You spend good money to keep it healthy, wealthy and wise. You treat your car with respect the same way you’d treat a living being under your care. So, that’s why it’s irritating when it becomes messy and dirty and just plain gross merely days after a detailing.

We get it. We know it’s not always your fault. Other people are just the worst sometimes. They’re always making a mess of your precious living spaces, often giving no thought of the world around them. And who are the worst offenders? Kids. Alright, alright, we know you love your kids. And maybe you somehow even like other people’s children too. But that doesn’t correct the fact they are just plain messy. Seeing a kid with ice cream getting into your car is akin to watching a train collide with a truck in slow motion…. You know that something terrible is about to happen, but there’ just nothing you can really do about it.

On that note: we’re here with your (very important) survival guide to keeping your beautiful car clean and clear and under control. It consists of mostly preventative steps that you can take to stop your car from getting dirty.

So without further ado, here’s our list of the top Eight Ways to Keep You Car’s Interior Clean:

  1. Keep a small trash bag in your car. This is a big one. Your car is like your home: it generates garbage. But unlike our homes, we rarely have a designated location for trash in our cars. And it doesn’t have to be an ugly eyesore! Nope, it can be cute and compact.
  2. Kick off your boots. Before getting into your chariot, try kicking off your shoes or boots from any guck and muck you may have stepped in. Even if it doesn’t feel like there’s anything down there… who knows what could be lurking beneath your feet. This is an especially important piece of advice in the winter.
  3. NO FOOD. This is our personal favorite item on the list, as it’s fully preventative in nature. There’s no better way to clean a mess than avoiding it, to begin with. Sure, you may seem a little Type A, but your beautiful car will be thankful. And so will you.
  4. Change your air fresheners. Air fresheners are a beautiful thing. Cars can be inherently stinky places, what with all the feet nearby and the gas emissions and the close proximity to kids. So keep your space smelling fresh by being consistent with how often you change up your fresheners. The traditional gas-station varieties don’t have very long lifetimes, so maybe buy a few at once.
  5. Vacuum first. Cleaning your car successfully would require an all-together different list. But, when you do decide to get down and dirty with the inside of your vehicle, make sure you vacuum before getting to the details. This is sort of akin to how you need to sweep your kitchen floor before mopping. It gets the preliminary dirt out before you can break out the toothbrush.
  6. Tide To Go. Tide to Go sticks can be lifesavers. If you spill something that could leave a stain, then you’ll be glad you had one around. These won’t actually clean your spill, but if used properly, it will stop the mess from leaving a permanent stain on fabric interiors.
  7. Clean the inside of your car regularly. Okay, so this may not be the most mind-blowing item we’ve got on this list. But it works. By making sure you’re regularly cleaning the inside of your car, you’ll make sure it doesn’t build up any unnecessary and unattractive mess over time.
  8. Call AAA AUTO SPA. So you probably saw this coming by a mile, but it’s still the most useful tip on the list! Call AAA AUTO SPA (647)848-3223 to bring the car wash to your doorstep! It’s an affordable and complete car detailing service that comes to wherever you are.

Benefits of using micro-fiber towels to detail your vehicle

Posted Posted in Blog

Microfiber is a material that is used in many industries, and it continues to increase in popularity simply because of its effectiveness. This material is created from finely woven polyester and polyimide fibers, both of which are man-made materials. Polyester gives microfiber its durability, while polyamide gives it greater softness. The combination of these materials, as well as the manufacturing process, create a material that stands up to rigorous use and is also suitable for detailing or waxing your vehicle.

Manufacturing microfiber
Before reaching suppliers,  microfiber towels go through a lengthy manufacturing process that begins with yarning and advanced warp knitting. The material is then dried, dyed, lint fixed, ironed, rolled, cut and hemmed.

The manufacturing process creates spaces and channels in the microfiber material that pick up and hold dirt, grime and water. As a result, you often do not need to use chemicals when cleaning with a microfiber towel and the material holds liquids without absorbing them completely.

Benefits of microfiber
Many organizations seek out microfiber for cleaning purposes because of its unique properties. First of all, microfiber does not completely absorb liquids; it merely holds them. This ability makes microfiber towels reusable, while other types of materials would need to be thrown out. Because the towels don’t absorb liquid, they won’t collect bacteria.

Microfiber towels are effectively used in cleaning and detailing, especially in the automotive industry. These towels are durable and withstand more washes than other materials. Unlike rougher materials, microfiber will not scratch the paint on cars or leave lint behind. They are ideal for use on glass and other glossy surfaces.

While microfiber towels are particularly popular in the automotive industry, they are used in any situation where cleanup is needed, such as janitorial work, housekeeping, daycare, hospitals and more. Workers in these situations benefit from microfiber because it does not collect bacteria and can be used repeatedly.

Benefits of waxing and polishing your car

Benefits of polishing and waxing your car

Whether you have bought a new car or you have already owned your car for several years, car care is always a top concern. This goes beyond tending to the motor and mechanical maintenance. It also includes the aesthetic appearance inside and out. The car paint takes a great deal of punishment since there is no way of avoiding the elements. Fortunately, various treatments like having your car washed or waxed give it an added layer of protection against the sun, snow, and various other harmful factors. It is important, however, to understand the different benefits of each treatment in order to make the right detailing choices.

 

Benefits of polishing

Professional polishing can help restore your auto paint and get your car looking its best. Polishing can correct problems like stone chips, scratches, swirl marks, water spots, and etching. Stone chips and scratches can be caused by various factors and items. It’s important to understand that polishing can remove surface scratches and chip marks but anything that penetrates too deep might to be possible to remove through polishing alone.Lets talk about polishing, Professional polishing is performed in several stages. Once the vehicle is perfectly clean, a compound will need to be applied and worked carefully over the paint surface. This compound has abrasive properties which means that if it is not applied properly, it can do more harm than good. All the more reason to leave this job to the pros!

This compound has abrasive properties which means that if it is not applied properly, it can do more harm than good. All the more reason to leave this job to the pros!

The calcium carbonate or similar particles in the water are left behind as the water evaporates and leaves spots behind. Swirl marks are often caused by poor washing habits or by automatic car wash machines. Water spots, on the other hand, are usually due to washing your car with hard water and allowing it to dry naturally.  These can be tough to remove once they have set in but, fortunately, polishing can get the job done without a problem. Etching is another problem that is best described as the chemical erosion of the top layer (usually the clear coat) of paint. This can be the result of dead bugs or bird droppings sticking to your car.

One or more compounds with different levels of abrasiveness might be used to remove the damage before a protective layer is applied and your vehicle is buffed to perfection. You will notice that, after polishing your car, dirt will have a tougher time sticking to it and it will be easier to clean. The protective layer of the polish will also help keep harmful impurities in the air from embedding themselves in your paint. Remember, polishing should not be done too often since abrasive compounds are used. If you polish your car too often, it can compromise the quality of the paint.

 

Benefits of waxing

Waxing, unlike polishing, does not involve the use of abrasive compounds which means that it does not wear down the paint. Waxing adds a great protective layer on top of your vehicle paint. This means that it will protect the paint from contaminants in the air, chips, and scratches. Waxing also gives your car a brilliant shine and makes washing much easier. While waxing can help make surface scratches less obvious by filling them, it will not restore your paint in the same way as polish. Another important point to remember is that waxing can and should be done more often than polishing for ongoing protection.
