How to Wax a Car

Waxing Your Car

Waxing the exterior of your vehicle gives it that fresh, enviable shine, and even protects the paint job from damage and oxidation. But a DIY job can go incredibly wrong if you don’t know exactly when and how to wax your car. That’s why the technicians at Wrecktify are professionally trained in the art of waxing, and they recommend you utilize their expertise when the time comes for a touch-up. There is an intricate, sometimes extensive process to go through in order to wax a car, and knowing it will help you understand why Wrecktify experts do what they do and how well they do it.

Pre-Wax Prep

As with almost anything, the prepping phase is just as important as the actual “main course,” possibly even more so. Before the wax touches your car, the exterior has to be spotless so the wax will adhere to the paint instead of the grime, allowing the results last longer. Applying polishing solution will be the next step. There could be scratches or uneven coloring on the paint not easily seen by the naked eye, and this step will help provide a more flawless finish. Finally, make sure the process is done in a cool, contained environment. Temperature changes or warmer climates may hinder the effectiveness of the wax, so it’s often recommended to wax your car in your garage where there is limited light and controlled conditions. Wrecktify’s technicians have mastered the art of how to wax a car. We maintain a perfect waxing environment so the end product is beyond what you even hoped for.

Finishing the Job

Finding the perfect wax for your car can be tricky, expensive, and confusing. How do you know which one will do the trick? At Wrecktify, we have access to the best products on the market to take the guesswork out of the process for you. But if you’re looking into the products yourself, remember, you get what you pay for. Typically, experts suggest purchasing waxes with genuine Carnauba even though they have a larger price tag. The cheaper “cleaner wax” is risky because it is abrasive and could melt away the clear coat on your car. Spray waxes only last a couple of weeks at best. While waxing, use the foam applicator that’s included with most waxes. Add a silver dollar sized dollop of wax to the foam applicator, and apply in a circular, overlapping motion to a 2×2 ft area at a time. Then, wait a few minutes until the wax is dried, and use a microfiber towel to buff away the dried wax in a circular motion similar to the application process. A good wax job is applied and buffed meticulously, which is exactly how the Wrecktify technicians are trained. Our team members are determined to deliver the best results possible, and they have the skill to back it up.
