Sand can be a nuisance on both the inside and outside of your car or truck. The longer sand sits, the more deeply embedded it can become in floor mats, carpets, and fabrics. The best time to address sand is as soon as possible. Any Autobell® Full Service packages include a thorough vacuuming of the interior of the vehicle. This will also include cleaning the exterior and wheels to remove additional sand and debris from the outside of your vehicle. For extra benefit, add an underbody wash to remove any out-of-sight particles.
The UV rays of the hot summer sun can fade and blemish your vehicle’s paint. To combat the sun as well as other environmental abrasives, we recommend a Full Service car wash including polish, sealer, and AUTOGLOSSSM, an Autobell® exclusive. AUTOGLOSSSM was created to reduce surface adhesion, protect against harmful UV rays, and extend the life and luster of your vehicle.
Leaf stains can cause permanent damage to the exterior paint of your car. When leaf stains appear, we recommend washing your car as soon as possible. Our cleansers are industrial grade and created to be tough on stains, but gentle on the top coat. We also recommend our polish and sealer after leaf stains to seal and protect the top coat.
Bugs and Birds
Bugs, bird droppings, and other environmental abrasives cause an acidic reaction with your paint, much like leaf stains. This process normally begins in 24 to 48 hours. To keep these from damaging your paint, we recommend getting a cleaning as soon as possible. If you travel around dawn, dusk, or water areas, and have issues with bugs or bird droppings, we recommend polish and sealer at least once per month to prohibit potential permanent harm.
Salt and Brine
Salt and brine are the two most widely used substances to keep roads safe during adverse weather. They do a good job keeping our roads in better driving condition; however, they have corrosive properties that promote rust on metal parts. Our recommendation is a thorough exterior cleaning with underbody wash. For the following month, we recommend an exterior cleaning as well as underbody wash any time there is rain or additional snow and sleet. Salt and brine may continue to stay on porous surfaces, like roads and driveways, for a while. This makes additional car cleaning important.
**Autobell® Car Wash is open no matter the temperature or the weather. We are ready to clean your car, truck, or SUV any time you are on the road.
What color is your car today? If it is “pollen yellow,” we recommend that you bring it in for a Full Service wash including exterior and interior cleaning. Pollen can get inside your vehicle, including your vents, reducing efficiencies of systems like your air conditioning unit. Pollen can also cause discoloration and promote deterioration of leather and fabrics.
