If you have a car, you should be prepared for mobile bumper repairs at any time because accidents happen when you least expect them. It is inevitable that your vehicle will sustain scratches of dents at some point, especially on the bumper, whether it is the result of poor parking or a rogue shopping cart. However, these dents will be nagging whenever you pass them by. They serve as a constant reminder that you are not perfect. 

No one is perfect and it can be expensive to remove these dents and may not seem worth your money and time. Fortunately, we have compiled a list of tips for getting rid of dents if the damage is small enough. It is important to keep in mind that these suggestions are for people who want a quick fix and might not be safe for your car. It is therefore important to do proper research and prepare well before attempting to fix your car.

If your dent is too large for you to fix on your own, it is best to schedule an appointment with a professional car repair specialist so that they can determine the best course of action to keep your vehicle safe. Dents that are too deep, large or have damaged the metal should be fixed by a professional.

A professional will make the process convenient by bringing the repair services to you so that you don’t have to interrupt your schedule. Here are some mobile scratch repair tips for you.

Use a plunger

A plunger is an effective tool when it comes to unclogging toilets and sinks but it can also be used for removing small dents. All you need to do is to get the dent and plunger wet and apply some pressure until the dent comes out. If the dent isn’t too deep, it should take a few tries to fix the problem.

Boiling water

If the car dent is on a plastic bumper, applying boiling water to the area should remove the dent. Boiling water and pouring it on the area and then reaching behind the bumper and pushing until the dent comes up is an effective way to remove the dent. You can then proceed to pour cold water over the area to cool and let the plastic set.

Use a hair dryer

This is another common household item that can be used to remove dents from your car. This may work if you have a dent on your plastic bumper. All you have to do is to blow dry the affected area with a hair dryer for about three minutes and make sure you use sweeping motions to cover the surface. You should wear gloves and push the dent out from the inside. You should be mindful of the blistering on the car paint.

Create a suction

If you don’t want to call your mobile bumper repairs professionals, you can use this method to fix your dents. If the dent is in a place that can’t be reached from the inside, you can use a vacuum cleaner to pull it out.
