Your Vehicle Needs Sunscreen Too!
Whew! We’ve had some record-breaking heat lately. Just as your skin can get sunburned, so can the paint of your car, truck, van, or SUV.
Vehicle Sun Damage
Chances are you have seen a car with sun damage – Does this look familiar?
Sun damage can be a result of not having a vehicle properly washed and waxed. A thorough wash gets rid of dirt, dust, and grime that can increase the chances of the topcoat being damaged. In addition to a wash, a nice wax adds an extra layer of protection to that topcoat to prevent sun damage even more – it’s SPF for your car!
What’s Our Wash + Wax Process?
At Capitol Shine, our WASH + WAX consists of a paint-safe hand wash and dry of the exterior, trunk and door jambs, windows, mirrors, dashboard, console, wheels, and tires. We also incorporate bug and tar removal, a clay bar surface treatment, dressing outside plastics and rubber, and a hand WAX exterior into the process. After that, we polish it all off (pun intended) with a Light Buff. So take a look at our Wash + Wax as well as our other services by clicking here.
Other Tips for Protection Against the Sun
- Park in the shade when you can to reduce paint and interior damage.
- Check your tires! Extreme heat can mix with under-inflated tires and cause a blowout.
- Use a sunshade for the windshield. This can help protect your dashboard from cracking as well as reduce the overall temperature of your vehicle’s interior!
- Did we mention getting a wash and wax for your vehicle?
