It’s easy to overlook the importance of your vehicle’s paint
job. However, protecting the quality of your car’s paint is essential
to maintaining its appearance for many years to come. While car owners
have numerous car buffing products to choose from, you shouldn’t
be too quick to pick one—using the wrong product on your car could
damage it. Going with professional
paint film protection is a superior way to ensure the integrity of your vehicle’s paint
job. Here are some products to be wary of.
Cleaning cloths. While it’s fine to clean your vehicle using cloths, it’s important
that you choose the cloth carefully. If you use a microfiber-based cloth
to clean your car, it could cause very subtle scratches. Eventually, these
scratches will become more obvious and will affect your paint job. Instead,
use chamois cloths, which are designed to clean delicate surfaces.
Chemical cleaners. Commercial car cleaning products are widely available, but not all of
these products are appropriate for use on your car. While some commercial
cleaners will not harm your vehicle, others contain abrasive substances
that can harm your paint job. Silicone-based products should be avoided.
If you are uncertain which types of cleaners are best for your vehicle,
ask a body shop professional for advice.
Power tools. Never use power tools to try to remove anything from your vehicle’s
paint job. You are risking serious damage to your paint job—and
the car itself—if you do this. Instead, ask a professional for advice.
If you are concerned about keeping up your vehicle’s paint job,
consider investing in professional paint film protection.
