How to Clay Bar a Car

If you’re looking to keep your car looking better than ever, Nebraska Auto Detailing’s clay bar treatment is the way to go. This process, known as claying or decontaminating, is a primary step in our detailing process to help each driver maintain their vehicle. Today, we’ll discuss how we clay bar a car, step-by-step, including all the materials and tools necessary to get your car detailed properly.

The Steps of Our Clay Bar Treatment

No matter how often you wash your car, dirt, and contaminants still find their way onto your paint’s surface. These contaminants include dirt, grime, and other debris that aren’t removable through traditional washing methods. These small bumps may not be visible to the naked eye, but further inspection reveals their presence. If they aren’t removed, these contaminants can result in gradual damage to your car’s paint and or coatings.

This is where clay barring comes in, which allows us to remove embedded contaminants from your car’s paint. A clay bar is a soft, moldable material that effectively removes contamination without scratching or damaging a vehicle’s exterior. The various steps of this process ensure that your car’s paint is smooth and free of impurities.

Wash and Dry Your Car

Before starting our clay bar treatments, we thoroughly hand-wash and dry your car to remove any loose dirt or debris. Additionally, we utilize excellent car shampoos to avoid damaging your car’s clear coat. Lastly, we rinse your car with clean water and dry it using air and a soft safe drying towel to verify that it’s completely dry.

Applying the Clay Bar and Detailing Solutions

Next, we spray a small section of your car’s paint with specialized lubricant and sprays before rubbing the small area. This technique lubricates the surface, making it easier for the clay bar to glide over it. The clay bar will gradually remove most, if not all, of the embedded contaminants from the surface of your car’s paint. These gentle and pressure-resistant steps don’t leave scratches on the surface of your car. Once we’ve completed a section, then we move on to the remaining sections of your car, truck, or SUV.

This process may take some time depending on the size of your car and the level of contaminants. The Nebraska Auto Detail team also monitors the condition of each clay bar to ensure that your car receives the attention and care that it deserves. Once we’ve completed the clay-barring process, we’ll thoroughly rinse your vehicle with clean water and dry it.
