No matter the age of your vehicle, washing your car is an importance maintenance step that should not be overlooked. It can be done in a matter of minutes using a professional car wash service or you can do it by hand in the comfort of your own driveway. It is one of the least costly ways to keep your vehicle looking its best.
Keeping your vehicle's exterior clean goes a long way in preserving its paint and body. Salt, dirt, tar and tree sap are just some of the things which can wreak havoc on your vehicle's sheet metal. They will eat away at your vehicle's clear coat (the clear layer on top of the paint) and work themselves into the paint itself. This will cause your paint to fade, look dull and even peel and chip easier.
Ensuring you wash your vehicle regularly can help prevent all of this and keep your vehicle looking its best.
