If there is a singular maintenance practice that will improve your cars appearance the most, keeping the car clean may be it. Unfortunately for those that have just had new paint applied, there is a proper way to clean your car.

After leaving a collision center with your new paint, you need to wait approximately 4 weeks before you can wax your car. If you have a trusted car wash in your area, you can take it there. Otherwise we suggest washing it at home.Make sure you don’t use dish soap on your car as this can actually dull the new paint. You may fill a bucket with a Ph balanced cleaner. Start from the top of your vehicle and work your way down. You, should then make sure to rinse thoroughly. Once you have made sure that all residue has been rinsed off, be sure to completely dry your car. Water left behind can leave marks in the paint.

A newly painted car should be washed weekly to maintain its new appearance. After Leaving Automotive Specialties Inc. with a brand new paint job, these steps will surely help you out!
