Fact Check Policy - Written by PROs
At our Blog section, only esteemed Authors adhere to our meticulous process of selecting, researching, writing, editing, updating, and, if necessary, correcting our articles.
Our diverse range of topics is driven by customer requests, timely discussions in various industry-related forums, and updates on new products, such as equipment, tools, chemicals, techniques, and innovations in the cleaning and automotive sectors.
When we embark on covering a topic, product, or guide, we ensure engagement with genuine PROs who possess real-world experience in the subject matter. Our commitment is to dedicate equal time to scrutinizing claims from product users, service centers, and manufacturers.
To back our content with robust evidence, we rely on a range of sources, including:
Real experience with products: Each product undergoes rigorous testing in our lab or partner facilities, ensuring comprehensive evaluations.
Forum discussions about techniques: Our authors actively participate in professional communities related to our topics, exchanging insights on the most effective methods for achieving the discussed goals.
Campaign and official websites: We keep a keen eye on manufacturers' official websites to obtain accurate tech specs provided by them.
Ratings and Reviews from marketplaces and social networks: Analyzing aggregated reviews for every featured product in our ratings helps us consider people's genuine opinions on each item we write about.
Our research process involves systematically exploring the opinions of industry experts for each technique or product we discuss. In the event that we encounter information that appears inaccurate or misleading, we take it upon ourselves to engage with the experts or organizations involved in the matter being fact-checked. We place the burden of providing evidence to support a claim on the individual or organization making that claim. Should the provided evidence fail to substantiate the claim or if no evidence is provided at all, we conduct our own research.
To further fortify the reliability of our content, we also seek insights from respected and trustworthy external experts, including the International Detailing Association (IDA)
, International Car Wash Association (ICA)
, International Cleaning Association (ISSA)
, Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA)
, among others. Additionally, when quoting experts, we prioritize disclosing relevant biographical information, offering readers transparency regarding their backgrounds, including any previous work in government or campaigns where applicable.
Our primary objective is to rely on the best available evidence to provide accurate and informed content.
After an article, story, or guide is composed, it undergoes several layers of editing and review:
Line editing: A meticulous line editor reviews the content to ensure completeness and clarity. Any missing solutions or areas requiring refinement are diligently addressed.
Copy editing: A proficient copy editor meticulously polishes the article, paying close attention to style and grammar.
Fact-checking: A dedicated fact-checker painstakingly verifies each line, word, and image to ensure the accuracy of every piece of information and advice we provide. All our content is firmly rooted in solid evidence.
To empower our readers with the ability to verify facts independently, all our articles contain hyperlinks to the source material. Furthermore, before publication, each article undergoes scrutiny by at least three individuals who were not involved in its writing or reporting, ensuring a comprehensive review process.
In the rare event that new information emerges after an article's publication, significantly impacting the content, we are committed to promptly addressing the matter. We clarify, correct, or update the story and provide a note to our readers explaining the change, the reasons behind it, and the date of the update.
We value reader feedback, as it contributes to our commitment to accuracy and transparency. To facilitate open communication, readers can contact us at email@example.com
