Cars get dirtier in the winter and the kind of dirt that is found on winter roads is harmful to your vehicles paintwork, wheels, tyres & glass.
With the end of warmer climates and winter fast approaching your vehicles paintwork will be more exposed to the harsh elements like road salt, grit, snow, ice and frost.
Our Winter Protection Package which runs from October to March is specially designed to protect and seal the vehicle’s paint, glass and alloy wheels from the winter elements.
Providing additional protection for your vehicle during the winter period is vital to maintaining the paint as well as the wheels and glass.
If you think valeting your car is just for those spring and summer months where the sun can glint off the freshly polished and waxed exterior, think again.
Here’s why you should have your car valeted in winter:
They effect the look & feel and can cause corrosion if left untreated & uncleaned. Have your car valeted with a standard car wax to keep corrosive & harmful things from damaging your paintwork.
A simple car wax will provide 1-3 months protective durability to your paint and glass.
One of the harshest enemies is road salt.
It can eat through your car’s finish and contribute to premature rusting. Valeting in winter with a thorough process including a car wash, polish and wax to get that corrosion-causing road salt off your car and lay down a protective layer that will help keep it off your car as winter wears on.
Even if you live in an area where they don’t salt the roads, the caked-on snow, ice, grit, mud and grime can trap moisture against your car’s finish with—you guessed it—the same result:
a ruined finish and an early trip to the scrap merchant because of rust that could have been prevented or at least delayed with a good valet in winter.
But it’s not just your car’s exterior that needs attention.
A thorough valet in winter is important for your car’s interior, too.
Every time you get in your vehicle with wet, muddy or snowy shoes, your carpet takes a hit.
It needs to be cleaned more often, not less, when winter rolls around.
And your shoes likely aren’t the only part of you bringing grit and grime into your car. Cloth and leather interiors both need more frequent vacuuming during the winter months to prevent scratches, rips and tears.
And how about those temperature extremes?
From freezing (or below freezing) temperatures to the occasional bright sunny day, your leather, vinyl and plastic parts go through a lot of contracting and expanding with the cold and heat. Proper regular conditioning of those surfaces will prevent them from becoming dry, brittle and cracking apart.
Applying winter protection to your car can:
- Stop extreme temperatures damaging your paint
- Prevent road salt & grit from corroding your alloys and bodywork
- Clear snow, ice and rain faster from your windows
