How Often Should I Get My Car Detailed? The frequency at which you should have your car detailed depends on a variety of factors, including your driving habits, the environment in which you drive, and your personal preferences. Generally speaking, we recommend having your car detailed at least once a year, but we may suggest more frequent detailing if you drive in particularly harsh conditions or if you want to maintain a high level of cleanliness and appearance.
Here are some guidelines to help you determine how often to have your car detailed:
If you frequently drive in harsh conditions (e.g. heavy traffic, dirt roads, extreme temperatures), you may want to have your car detailed every 3-6 months. This will help maintain the appearance.
If you live in a coastal area with high humidity, you may want to have your car done every 2-4 months to remove salt and other contaminants that can cause rust and corrosion.
If you want to maintain a high level of cleanliness and appearance, you may want to have your vehicle detailed every 2-3 months with a maintenance type detail.
If you drive less frequently or in mild conditions, you may be able to go a year or more between detailing appointments.
It’s important to note that regular washing and regular cleaning of the interior of the car can help extend the time between detailing. Additionally, if you notice any specific issues like heavy stains, bad odors or any other specific concern, it is better to have it addressed as soon as possible.
A well detailed car can increased resale value: A well-maintained, clean vehicle is more likely to fetch a higher price when it comes time to sell or trade it in. Detailing can help improve the overall appearance of your vehicle, making it more attractive to potential buyers.
