Do You Need a Car Valeting and Cleaning Service?

Dirt and grime are the greatest enemies of paintwork on cars. Not only do they leave your car looking unpleasant, they also encourage rust. When you get in and out of your car, you also track dirt inside, as well as contaminate doors and footwell panels. If you eat, drink or smoke inside your vehicle, the interior is likely to become stained and filled with lingering odours.

A local car cleaning and valeting specialist will ensure that your car looks its very best. They will remove stains, treat leather interiors, clean away dirt buildup and polish your car’s paintwork to a perfect shine. HaMuch can help you find a car valet near you to take care of the lot!

What Does a Professional Car Cleaning and Valeting Contractor Do?

How do you know whether a car cleaning specialist is the right tradesman for you? After all, you can just clean your car yourself, right?

Although you can carry out your own car cleaning, proper car care requires the appropriate cleaning products and equipment, which are mostly only available in local garages, specialist car valeting establishments and cleaning centres or shops that sell car accessories. The valeting work carried out in garages and other car cleaning places is often more intensive, and includes:

  • Interior and exterior car washing: Most valeting services include a thorough interior and exterior car wash, which removes dirt without harming the paintwork. Generally, there will be the option to choose a full or half valet car wash.
  • Paintwork correction and decontamination: Professionals decontaminate the car body, by first removing finer impurities and then spraying the car. This treatment will help restore the car’s paintwork to a clean, smooth finish.
  • Chrome polishing: Opting for a chrome polish brings out the rich colour of the car’s paintwork on the bumpers, lights, wheel spokes and any other chrome parts.
