With your vehicle most likely being one of your most valued, used possessions, it’s natural to want to keep it looking and feeling fresh and clean. In addition to getting your car washed consistently, having it detailed is an effective way to keep your car sparkling clean while using it for daily commutes, road trips, etc.

What is car detailing?

Car detailing involves two components: interior detailing and exterior detailing. Interior detailing involves cleaning (i.e., vacuuming, steam cleaning, etc.) the full interior cabin of your vehicle – including the leather, vinyl, plastic, and natural fibers – while exterior detailing involves washing, buffing, waxing, and degreasing your tires, windows, wheels, paint, and other exterior components of your vehicle.

How often should you detail your car?

The frequency is contingent upon on your car type, your purpose for using it, how often you use it, and your personal preference.

Professional detailers say there is no such thing as “too much” when it comes to detailing your car. If you’re a bit of a neat freak when it comes to your car, getting it detailed frequently can help ensure that your car is in showroom condition year-round.
