Car Washing Mandatory

You don’t need to be an expert auto mechanic or a genius with automotive trivia, but there are some things that are non-negotiable with cars and one of them is a car wash (and no, waiting until it rains does not count, especially in California). A thorough car wash/detailing is as essential for the body of your car as an oil change is for your engine.

Really? Or Are You Just Being A Drama Queen?

Really. First of all, we need to look at the purpose of paint. This goes beyond “it’s my favorite color”, “it matches my personality”, or “it’s British racing green”. Paint protects the body of your car.

When dust and dirt is left unhindered, it acts like sandpaper. The paint starts to weaken, crack, and chip away. You may think you’re in the clear if it rains, but rain mixed with dirt, dust, and other pollutants can act even faster in terms of damaging your paint job. Now, let’s say you live on a nice tree lined street and park under the tree nearest your house or building. What happens when the tree drops sap, or when birds drop...other things? These all accelerate the rate of damage and can ultimately (and dangerously) compromise the structural integrity of your car.

Money Talks

Some people stick with a car for decades while others like to get a new one every 50,000 miles or so. It does not matter which category you fall into because not washing/detailing your car regularly will eat away at your wallet one way or the other, either in repairs or resale value.

Damage to the body of your car is potentially devastating, and you will need to have it repaired repeatedly so as not to compromise its structural integrity.

Whether you’re in true rustbucket territory or your car has some paint and body damage, the resale value of your car will take a hit. Your car is an investment, one way or the other.
