We all love for our vehicle to look nice and, if possible, maintain that brand new look! But, after using it for years, a simple wash won’t do the trick anymore. So, when this moment arrives, It is time to go for car detailing.

Car detailing (done by an expert) is the art and craft of cleaning and restoring the inside and exterior of the vehicle to like-new condition. Detailing is less popular than other types of auto maintenance since it takes significantly more time, money, and effort.

Anyone may detail a car by washing the inside and exterior as thoroughly as possible. Still, a detailer finishes a professional detailing job with experience using the right tools and high-quality supplies.

Now that we know what car detailing is, how often should we detail our vehicle, and how much will it cost? Read on to find out!

 

HOW OFTEN YOU SHOULD DETAIL YOUR CAR

How often you professionally detail your car depends entirely on two things: 

 

HOW OFTEN YOU USE YOUR CAR

Is the car your go-to vehicle for everyday movement? or is it just a once-in-a-while drive car?

If you use the car frequently, you need to detail it in a time frame of between 2 to 5 times a year. You can also opt to detail your car once every 4 to 5 months. However, if your car use is less frequent (like once a month), you can detail your car once a year.

 

THE TERRAIN YOU DRIVE ON

The road or street you drive on regularly can also significantly alter the rate your car would need a detailing service. For example, if you stay in cities like Accra or Kumasi and your daily route consists of good streets, you might not need detailing as often.

However, if you use sandy, muddy or rocky roads, you should detail your car as often as once every three months. Doing this would be necessary as dust and dirt would build up in the gaps and spaces of the exterior of your car, even coming into the interior when you have the windows rolled down.

 

HOW MUCH DOES DETAILING COST

Depending on the state of your vehicle, a complete interior and exterior detailing service can cost from GHC 500 to as high as GHC 1000. Factors that affect this pricing can be the vehicle’s condition, type, and location.

 

WHAT DOES CAR DETAILING ENTAIL

Car detailing is done in two parts, Exterior and Interior.

 

EXTERIOR CAR CLEANING

During Exterior car cleaning, the washing and drying process is done by hand to improve accuracy. Your car body will also be sprayed with specialized products. This process includes washing the rims, door handles, and glass. Other services include:

  • paint claying
  • polishing
  • waxing
