A good car ceramic coating will protect your car’s paintwork and add to its depth and shine. As an added bonus, its ability to repel water means dirt is less likely to stick and, if it does, is much easier to remove. Nevertheless, you still need to clean your car regularly to keep it looking good.+ Read More
Although ceramic coating is long-lasting, often not requiring renewal for several years and at least one year for even cheap ceramic protection, it still has to be looked after.
The coating is an extra layer on top of the car’s paintwork and acts as a ‘sacrificial layer’. That means it is there to take the knocks, scrapes and damage from dirt, UV rays and other contaminants rather than the paint itself.
As a consequence of this, the ceramic coating can eventually be damaged by its constant exposure to harsh conditions and particularly if scraped or hit by large stones. You therefore need to clean the car regularly so that, as part of the process, you can check the integrity of the car ceramic protection and ensure there is no damage. Once washed and dry, you can also polish and wax the bodywork to add a further layer of protection.
Cleaning a car with ceramic protection is really no different to cleaning any other car, just easier because dirt is less likely to bond to the paintwork after treatment. Nevertheless, you need to stick to certain principles and techniques to do a good job.
Use the appropriate SENSHA products — a car sponge for the glass and paintwork, wheel sponge for the alloys, microfiber cloths to dry and polish the car, car shampoo, glass cleaner and tyre wax. Clean the car when it’s not too hot and avoid direct sunlight, otherwise you’ll likely finish with smeared paintwork.
Clean off the worst of the dirt with a pressure washer or high-pressure hosepipe and then wash thoroughly, starting at the roof and working downwards. Rinse off the suds and then dry the whole the bodywork with microfiber cloths.
Pay particular attention to the wheels because they’re likely to be the dirtiest. And check the paintwork thoroughly to look for damage to the car ceramic protection coating. If so, you may need to reapply to restore the protection level.
If you wish, polish the cleaned car and add an extra layer of wax protection. Done properly, cleaning will ensure the car ceramic coating continues to do its job and your car looks its best.
