1. It’s best to start with washing the wheels and tyres first. You more easily get into all the difficult to reach areas by wearing a sock on your hand to do the cleaning.
2. Always remove all jewellery from your hands prior to washing the bodywork in order to prevent scratches.
3. Start with washing the roof first and then rinse it off. In general it’s best to was one area at a time and rinse immediately to avoid water spots.
4. When rinsing use higher pressure on the wheels and tyres and lower pressure, fine spray on the paintwork.
5. Once the car is dry you can do some detailing to remove swirls in the paintwork. This can be done with any suitable waxing products, but if you hire a car valeting service for this, it’s best to look for one that is AutoGlym Registered.
Most good valeters will offer car detailing as part of their service and it’s a good idea to get a few quotes from various companies or individuals in order to obtain the best price.
If you live in the Leeds area, then one of the best recommended valeters can be found at the website http://valetinginleeds.co.uk. This valeting company can deal with all of your requirements from a motorcycle all the way up to fleet contracts. They even offer additional related services such as alloy wheel repair and will soon be able to deal with minor body repairs as well.
If you can afford it, then it is best to go for the full valet, however the basic valeting option is sometimes more appropriate in the winter months when your car can get dirty again very quickly.
If washing the car yourself, then you can find all of the products that you need from a store like Halfords or Maplin.
