Care Tips For After You Have Painted Your Car

So, you’ve just given your ride a shiny new look from Paint for Cars. Congrats! Now, let’s keep that beauty gleaming. Here’s what you gotta do:

Hold Off on Washing
Patience is key! Give it about two weeks for the paint to settle in. When it’s time to wash, skip the automatic car wash— those brushes can be super rough. Go for a gentle hand wash instead.

Pick Soft Cleaning Tools
Grab a soft, clean sponge or cloth. It’s your best bet to avoid any scratches on that fresh paint job.

Steer Clear of Direct Sunlight
Wash your car in the shade. Sunlight can dry the water and soap too quickly, leaving annoying spots behind.

Use Car-Specific Soap
Ditch the household cleaners! They’re too harsh. Stick to soaps made for cars to keep the paint in tip-top shape.

Wait Before Waxing
Wait even longer for wax. The paint needs to cure, which usually takes about 60 days. After, a good quality car wax can protect and shine.

Fix Scratches Fast
See any chips or scratches? Don’t delay! Cover them up ASAP to keep rust at bay.

Stay on Top of Maintenance
Keep an eye out for any signs of wear and tear. Regular touch-ups will keep your paint looking fresh.

Cover It Up
If you don’t have a garage, invest in a car cover. It’ll protect your car from UV rays, bird droppings, and tree sap.

By sticking to these tips, your freshly painted car will stay vibrant and new for years. At Paint for Cars, we’re always here to help with products and advice to keep your car looking its best.
