Why Detailing A Car Is So Important

When was the last time you gave your vehicle a little TLC? Many of us have a weekly cleaning ritual, where we scrub out the fridge drawers and make sure to dust all the mantels. However, so few of us do the same for our cars, and we’re in them every day! Adding your car to your next cleaning ritual will have numerous benefits for you and your vehicle.

What Detailing Means in Terms of Your Vehicle 

Detailing is just a fancy term for getting into your car and doing a deep clean, the same way you might your kitchen or bathroom. It does mean "clean", but in a sense, it means much more. Think about how you may “detail” your home: maybe you don’t clean the oven or scrub the baseboards every weekend, but these are still essential tasks that need priority every once and a while. Cleaning your car weekly by taking out cluttering items or wiping down spills is regular maintenance, but getting deep into it is detailing. You may even be surprised at what you find in your vehicle when you take a closer look, especially if you have kids! 

Benefits of a Good Detailing

Cleaning your car does more than just add a chore to your list. There are numerous benefits to getting a car detail. 


A clean car is a happy car. When you give your car a little extra attention, it goes far. Making sure the inside is free of dirt, dust, and debris may support the filters in doing their job a little easier.

A clean car helps the driver feel comfortable. Giving your car a little extra love will undoubtedly give you a little bit of joy the next time you go on a commute.

Organization helps with focus. Did you know organization can also affect your driving ability? A landmark study conducted by Princeton University found that clutter can make it more difficult for people to focus on a task–so just imagine how much your car clutter is taking your focus off of driving!

It makes your passengers feel safer, too. You deserve to feel safe and focused in the vehicle you drive, and so does your family. Especially if you’re next in the carpool schedule or tend to give co-workers a ride home after work, a clean vehicle can make a great impression.
