Did you know that it’s recommended that you wash your car every two weeks? What about waxing and detailing your vehicle twice a year? While this can seem like a bit much, there are good reasons why vehicle owners should be investing in regular car washes.
Keep in Good Condition
Dirt and grime can play an insidious role in the wear-and-tear that comes with owning an aging vehicle. Dead bugs and bird droppings can even be acidic enough to wear off your vehicle’s paint job! It’s easier to prevent paint from wearing away than to get it touched up, so getting regular washes to preserve the look of your car helps in the long run.
Paint jobs are purely cosmetic, but rust isn’t, and salt build-up can actually corrode the metal in a vehicle and cause rust. Since we’re located in Florida, we aren’t exposed to road salt used to prevent snow storms as often, but we do live in a damp and salty climate due to the ocean! Make sure to wash your car to stave off salt build-up.
High Resale Value
When you regularly wash your car to keep the paint in good condition and minimize rust and corrosion, the resale value of your vehicle goes up in the long term. If you’re planning on trading in your car eventually, investing in regular washes and detailings.
