Top 6 Tips To Protect Your Car From The Damages Rainwater Can Cause

You’d think leaving you’re your car out when it’s pouring is clever because you’re giving it a good wash without you spending a dime. However, what you do not realize is how detrimental this could actually be for your car’s paint.You’d think leaving you’re your car out when it’s pouring is clever because you’re giving it a good wash without you spending a dime. However, what you do not realize is how detrimental this could actually be for your car’s paint.

Too cold or too hot temperature can make your car paint expand and contract and then result to cracking. When this happens, it’d be easier for water or moist to seep through the cracks and create rust.

Aside from that, rainwater forms by collecting several elements from the atmosphere. This means water isn’t the only things hitting your car when it’s pouring. You have other impurities that causes acid rain and deliberately exposing your car to that is bound to cause trouble for you sooner or later.

So generally, there’s constant exposure of your car to rainwater that can lead to cracking, chipping and peeling off the paintwork. Aside from that, you can also end up with buildup of tough stains from the rainwater that can often be very hard to clean and premature rusting and corrosion.

Tips To Keep Your Car From Getting Damaged By Rainwater

1. Park In A Garage When Possible
This might be obvious but people seem to think you only need it during sunny days.

2. Use A Car Cover
If you can’t find any covered parking space, at least use a car cover so that your paintwork isn’t directly soaked in rainwater.

3. Wash It Thoroughly
So you forgot your car cover? That can’t be helped sometimes but remember to wash your car after being left in the rain. Your car had just been exposed to a lot of different impurities and when left like that for extended period of time, that can cause serious paint damage on your car. So give it a good car wash.

4. Do Not Skip Drying
Letting your vehicle air dry will leave unsightly watermarks and will render your hard work useless. . Use a microfiber towel or preferably a weave drying towel to absorb the water and dry the car.

5. Wax Your Car
Remember that a good wax will easily last 8 – 10 months on a car that will protect the paint of the car from external elements like scratches, dust, contaminants from the rainwater, and UV rays. To be on a safer side, apply a coat of wax every six months on your car to keep it clean and smooth.

6. Get Car Paint Protection Treatment
We can’t really help the kind of weather you’ll have in the place you live. Whether you have four seasons or two extreme weathers, all you can do is take extra step to protect your car from these. Paint protection in Singapore’s tropical weather will prevent your paint job from fading fast, it also keeps it from expanding and contracting which results to cracking where water or moist can seep through the cracks and create rust.

Top 10 Car Detailing Mistakes Most People Make

Top 10 Car Detailing Mistakes Most People MakeIt’s no secret that auto detailing can be pricey, this is why a lot of people are trying to DIY as much as they can to minimize the cost. But DYI-ing auto detailing can also be challenging and overwhelming. If you haven’t done it before, you’ve probably made a mistake or two. Here are the most common car detailing mistakes that car owners make and how to do it right the next time.

1. Substituting Car Polish For Car Wax
People often assume that car polish and car wax are basically the same thing. But they’re actually not. If you want shine and eliminate minor imperfections on your exterior, you should go for car polishing. Or better yet, you might wanna opt to ceramic coating; your car will have a layer of permanent adhesion to the paint which can only be removed through abrasion, compared to the traditional coating which can be torn off by using different chemicals.

2. Not Knowing How To Clean Your Windows Thoroughly
When we say windows, we don’t mean just the obvious surface that we see. You also need to look at the tops of them when they’re partially rolled down and clean it because since that is often overlooked, dirt really accumulates in there.

3. Forgetting To Clean Under Your Seats
Most people only clean parts of their car that they can see. But if you want a thoroughly clean, you really have to get into all the crevices that your car has and under the seats. You’d be surprise that your vehicle isn’t actually as clean as you think it is.

4. Not Letting Your Car Benefit From Clay Bar
Washing your car with water and car specific cleaning agent is a great way to prevent any dirt from causing damage on the paint. However, even after washing, some contaminants still cling to the paint. To totally get rid of them, using a clay bar is the way to go. Using this product is very easy but time consuming. First, use a good quality auto detailing shampoo to wash the paint and get rid of dirt and grime as much as possible. After that, you can use the clay. Many clay bars in the market come with a lubricant but if it does not, there are products that you can purchase separately. It is extremely important to lubricate the surface first to enable the clay to glide easily across the surface. You’ll know it’s working because the clay gets dirtier as you go because of all the contaminants it’s grabbing.

5. Cleaning From Bottom To Top
Do it the other way and you’ll end up re-doing your car washing. Why? Because some of the dirt will run off to the bottom while cleaning the top part.

6. Working Under Direct Sunlight
If you think that cleaning your car under direct sunlight is a good idea because it will reduce drying time, think again. Yes it may help dry the car fast but it can also cause smears, water spots, and residue which are never a good idea for your car.

7. Thinking One Bucket Is Enough
Always use two buckets when cleaning your car, one for washing and one for rinsing. It just doesn’t make sense to use the same water filled with dirt and suds to rinse the car.

8. Not Knowing About Using Interior Foggers Early On
Some people already hate car smell because it’s often a mix of gasoline, rubber and those weird smelling air-freshener. Now add a foul smell to that and it’s just nasty. Try using an odor eliminating fogger for this.

9. Applying Products Directly To The Paintwork
The golden rule is to dilute and apply to cloth first. Dilute cleaning products to water and apply polishing products to cloth first. Don’t even think of cutting this process short by applying the products directly to the paintwork. The damage that over-applying of products may cause is not worth the seconds you may have saved on cleaning.

10. Skipping Towel Drying
Although it’s not always necessary to towel dry your motor, if you’re going to do it, at least use the right towel. Unless you want to scratch the paintwork, never use a standard household towel, or a chamois for that matter. Instead, use a dry microfiber cloth to quickly remove excess moisture

Car repairs don’t come cheap. Actually they can really be hefty especially if it’s been a while since your last maintenance and its condition is quite bad already. Take car repainting for instance, when your paint gets damaged, you can’t just fix the damaged part, you have to repaint the entire car. If you don’t like to spend a huge amount of money trying to fix your car’s paint, better pay attention to this. They may seem nothing but could lead to serious damage in your vehicle if not taken care of.

Looking for car servicing in Singapore? I’m sure you’ll come across a lot of different service provider here. However, the question is, how will you know which among them is actually worth your time and their price? If you’re seriously stump, dig in and learn how to spot him.

1. Have A Good Look At Their Workshop
When you’re canvassing for a mechanic don’t just look at the person, extend your eyesight to his shop as well. Scan the place and ask yourself these: Does it look like the mechanic is organized? Are the tools and parts grouped according to sizes and types? Can you see calendars, planners, or whiteboard schedules in there? If you answered yes to all of those questions then there’s a possibility that you’re in good hands. A mechanic’s workshop may not be spotless but it should be organized.

2. Don’t Overlook The Receipt
Don’t just shove the receipt in your pocket and assume he’s good for providing one. See if the receipt is unreadable and if the mechanic won’t be bothered to explain the breakdown of your receipt. If that’s the case then you’re looking at someone who doesn’t expect you to be a regular client.

3. Check The Toolbox
A mechanic’s tools are the next best thing to his skills. Pay attention to whether he doesn’t have much and some haven’t been used by the looks of them. Or he has piles of them that are obviously spent. The latter are signs of experienced mechanic.

4. See How He Works With Minor Repair First

6. Pay Attention To Your Car Parts
There are instances where dubious mechanics will tell customers that they have replaced the car part already, when in fact they didn’t.

But if you’re with a good mechanic you won’t even have to ask, he’ll show you right away and ask if you still want it.

Now that you know how to look for a good mechanic, time to get your car over there and have it done!

Maintain Your Alloys
You don’t have to be speeding for your alloys to catch dirt or get scratched by rocks as you drive. While there’s no way of avoiding this, you can make sure they don’t cause any serious trouble for your car by not letting any dirt stick too long and cleaning them right away. There are a lot of alloy cleaner available in the market to choose from.

Bodywork Care
Aside from the fact that having your car splattered with bird droppings looks completely disgusting, it can also lead to damage on your paint. Try not to park under tall trees. But if you happen to catch your car with droppings already, remove it right way using warm, soapy water and gently rub using microfiber cloth. Microfiber cloths may be the most recommended material to use for cleaning your vehicle but if it’s dirty it may cause chips and other damage as well. So make sure you clean it before using it on your car. Also, you might want to avoid driving on rough roads if possible since small stones or rocks may hit the surface of your ride which can result to scratches. Or if there’s no other route, just drive more carefully.

Wax VS Polish
Car polishing is one of the most misunderstood paint care procedures and as a result many individuals skip this important step. Polish is an abrasive compound, which, when worked into the paint using the hand or a polisher, shaves off imperfections of the paint. It levels out the surface and makes it smooth, thereby preparing it for the next step of applying wax or paint sealant. If you wax without polishing the surface first, not only will the paint look dull, but you will also notice that the wax layer will wear off quicker than usual. So ultimately it is a huge waste of your time and resources. Because polish is abrasive as mentioned above, it is important to master polishing techniques especially if you are using a rotary buffer, or you risk burning right through the paint.

Most people love shiny cars because it makes the car look expensive and sleek. To achieve this look, they often opt to wax their car because we all know wax can help give that sparkling effect. However, the problem with this is that it is temporary and easily melts especially when constantly exposed in the sun. A much better option will be paint protection because it can provide the same luster for your car but is more durable compared to wax so it last longer.

Keep Everything Clean
Unclean car isn’t only unsightly but can also lead to unnecessary car repairs. It’s understandable that it’d be hard to squeeze in car washing everyday if you’re busy, but you should at least do it once a week or every time you get a day off and if you really can’t do it yourself then take advantage of the car grooming service that are widely available in Singapore. If you drive on poor conditions a lot, like when it’s rainy or on rough roads you have to get it done more often than once a week. You shouldn’t also forget that it’s necessary that you clean your car inside and out.
