What is your schedule for paint correction?

Creating a specific schedule for your car’s paint correction depends on many factors. It’s not just a matter of having a ‘one size fits all’ schedule for everyone.

The first thing to consider is the condition of the car. If your car has too many scratches, and is in poor condition, then it will need an immediate paint correction to get a fresh look.

Secondly, it depends on how the car owner operates and maintains their vehicle. In short, if you take care of and look after your vehicle properly, you will undoubtedly save yourself time and reduce the frequency for paint correction services on your car.

But in general, detailing experts will advise you to take your car in for a paint correction whenever you think it is necessary. As soon as you want to remove the defects on your car’s paint surface or return your painted surfaces to a flawless, new look.
