May maintenance: Why now is the perfect time to treat your vehicle at APC Auto Spa

As the rainy season tapers off and the sun starts peeking through the Seattle clouds, May is the ideal month to give your vehicle the TLC it deserves. At APC Auto Spa, we offer a comprehensive range of services designed to protect and enhance your vehicle, ensuring it's ready for the beautiful Pacific Northwest summer ahead.

Here's why each of our services is particularly relevant this month:

1. Ceramic Coatings: Shield your vehicle from the elements and make it easier to clean

Seattle’s unpredictable weather can be tough on your vehicle’s exterior. Our Ceramic Pro coatings provide a robust protective layer against UV rays, bird droppings, and environmental contaminants. This advanced ceramic technology not only enhances the gloss and depth of your paint but also makes it easier to clean. With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to invest in a Ceramic Pro coating to keep your car looking pristine all season long.

Why Ceramic Coatings?

  • UV Protection: Prevents paint fading and oxidation caused by the sun’s harmful rays.

  • Hydrophobic Properties: Makes washing your car easier by repelling water and dirt.

  • Enhanced Gloss: Gives your car a deep, reflective shine that lasts.

  • Long-Term Durability: Protects your vehicle for years with proper maintenance.

Process Overview: Our skilled technicians begin by thoroughly cleaning, decontaminating, and polishing your vehicle’s surface. We then apply the Ceramic Pro coating in a controlled environment to ensure optimal bonding. Finally, we use infrared (IR) lights to cure the coating, enhancing its durability and effectiveness.

Ceramic Pro Ceramic coating packages. Sport, Bronze, Silver, and Gold offer different levels of protection at different price points.

2. Paint Protection Film (PPF): Defend against rock chips and UV damage

As you prepare for road trips and weekend getaways, protect your vehicle from scratches, chips, and abrasions with our Kavaca paint protection film. This virtually invisible film offers superior protection without altering the appearance of your vehicle. Given increased driving activity during the warmer months, applying PPF now ensures your vehicle remains in top condition, free from the wear and tear of road debris.

Why paint protection film?

  • Scratch and chip resistance:

Shields your paint from rocks, road debris, and other minor impacts.

  • Self-Healing properties:

Minor scratches and swirls disappear with the heat of the sun or with heat application.

  • Stain resistance:

Protects against stains from bird droppings, tree sap, and road tar.

  • UV Protection:

Prevents degradation of your vehicles paint from UV exposure.

Process overview: Our technicians use a combination of custom and plotter cut PPF to get the exact dimensions of your vehicle's panel's, ensuring a perfect fit. The film is then carefully applied, and we use heat to activate the adhesive and the self-healing properties ensuring a virtually invisible finish.

3. Ceramic window tinting: Enhancing comfort, giving protection, and providing privacy

With the sun finally making its appearance, it's important to keep your car's interior cool and comfortable. Our Kavaca Ceramic IR window tint not only reduces glare and blocks harmful UV rays, but also enhances privacy and adds a sleek look to your vehicle. As the temperatures rise, window tinting becomes essential for protecting both you and your vehicle's interior from excessive heat and sun damage.

Why ceramic window tint?

  • Heat Rejection: Reduces interior temperatures, improving comfort.

  • UV Protection: Blocks up to 99% of harmful UV rays, protecting your skin and interior materials.

  • Glare Reduction: Enhances visibility and reduces eye strain.

  • Enhanced Privacy: Provides a layer of privacy while adding a stylish look.

Process Overview: Our window tinting process begins with a meticulous cleaning of your windows. We then use a precision plotter to cut the tint film to exact specifications. The film is applied with care, ensuring no bubbles or imperfections. Finally, we use heat to set the tint, ensuring long-lasting adhesion and performance.

Ceramic IR window tint not only protects you and keeps you cool, it also enhances the look of your vehicle.

4. Exterior detailing: Refresh and renew

After months of rain and grime, your vehicle deserves a thorough exterior cleaning. Our meticulous detailing services at APC Auto Spa ensure every inch of your vehicle's exterior is spotless. We use top-quality products and techniques to clean, decontaminate, polish, and protect your vehicle's surfaces. Regular exterior detailing not only maintains your vehicle's appearance, but also helps preserve its value by preventing long-tern damage.

Why exterior detailing?

  • Comprehensive Cleaning: Removes dirt, stains, and contaminants from your vehicle's exterior.

  • Paint Enhancement: Polishing and waxing enhance your paint’s appearance and protect against environmental damage.

  • Attention to Detail: Our technicians address even the smallest details to ensure your car looks its best.

  • Protection: Ceramic coatings and sealants provide a protective barrier against UV rays, rain, and road grime.

Process Overview: Exterior detailing includes a thorough wash to remove dirt and grime, followed by a clay bar treatment to eliminate embedded contaminants. Polishing restores the paint’s shine, while sealants and coatings add a protective layer to guard against the elements. We also clean and protect wheels, tires, and windows to complete the look.

Exterior detailing services are an essential part of your vehicle's care and maintenance

For those seeking the ultimate vehicle protection and the latest technology, our Ceramic Pro ION packages offer unparalleled durability and resistance against environmental contaminants. Available only at Ceramic Pro Elite dealers, this cutting-edge coating provides a thicker, more resilient barrier, ensuring your vehicle remains in showroom condition despite the rigors of everyday driving. May is the perfect time to upgrade to a Ceramic Pro ION package and enjoy the benefits of enhanced protection and ease of cleaning all year long.

Why Ceramic Pro ION?

  • Extreme Durability: Provides the highest level of protection against scratches, UV rays, and contaminants.

  • Superb Hydrophobic Effect: Water and dirt slide off easily, making maintenance simple.

  • Enhanced Gloss and Depth: Gives your vehicle a stunning, mirror-like finish.
