Here at G3 Valeting we offer our Fabric Hood Clean and Protect Detail for convertible cars which is a deep clean of your fabric hood to remove contaminants that have embedded themselves deep into the fabric. Tree sap-soot-road grime-bird lime are just some of the things which are attacking the fabric on a constant basis and that is without our typically inconsistent weather here in the south west of England so it is no wonder your fabric hood gets dirty and shows signs of wear in a short space of time.
Convertible Roof Cleaning
In an ideal world we would only use our convertibles in nice warm sunny weather but as we all know this rarely happens in the uk and with meteorologists predicting wetter summers and colder winters in future it makes sense to protect your hood from the outset, this has many benefits as number one we can get full long lasting protection on the hood from day one to protect from all the above mentioned problems, number two your hood will stay cleaner for much longer and number three it will stay newer looking for much longer and will remove the need for a re-colour which can be costly ,so as always prevention is better than cure. Industry professionals concur that an untreated hood will last if left untreated around 6-8 years,if protected it should almost double that with around 12 years lifespan quite conceivable so worth thinking about.
Fabric hoods that are subjected to the outside weather conditions 24/7 are more likely to accrue mould- green algae deposits- that can stain and attack deep into the fabric. We offer several Cleaning Services with special chemicals to clean deep into the hood and special brushes that attach to our machine polisher and can achieve far superior results than cleaning by hand.
Convertible Roof Protection
Unlike regular coatings used by other valeters and detailers, G3 Valeting use Gtechniq i1, the nano particles of I1 actually coat the individual fibres of the fabric thereby leaving the “breathability” and feel of the fabric unaffected. The former means that stale air can still escape but at the same time repelling any water or oil based liquids. Being solvent based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving an I1 treated surface much better durability and overall performance. Typically an I1 treated surface will outlast conventional water repellent coatings by a factor of approximately x5 with durability on soft-tops for example, lasting as much as three years.
