Car Waxing has its Perks
While it is an acknowledged fact car waxing makes an auto look dazzling, there are other, deeper-seated reasons why it pays to do so. Using a car wash service program is both budget and environmentally friendly. In the first instance, a purchaser will see you have been looking for your car nicely. They may even assume from the shiny, waxed surface you have been maintaining the mechanicals and pay you up to 10% more when you sell or trade it in.
How the California Coastal Climate Makes Car Waxing Essential
We have what meteorologists call a Mediterranean Climate, with warmer drier weather in summer, and cooler, wetter weather in winter. If we don’t keep the paintwork clean, a salty deposit stays on it all summer long, until winter rain washes it into ‘rust traps’ in the body. Regular car washing and waxing creates a barrier that helps keep the salt deposits away.
4 More Reasons to Request Car Waxing After Washing
- We use the gentlest, most environmentally friendly soaps we can find. They are there to clean the paint and that means removing some wax while also reducing the protective barrier. Car washing and car waxing are part of the same process. You really cannot have one without the other if you love your car and want to care for the paint.
- If you do not wax a car regularly, the paint goes dull and dry and that is a sad sign to see what was once someone’s pride and joy. Rub your hands over the surface, and feel the slight resistance. Salt deposits and other harmful contaminants are going to settle and damage the coating. This means the tin bug, rust is going to arrive sooner too without regular car waxing.
- One benefit of car waxing is that it puts a smooth layer over the paint that actively resists attacks by those harmful salt deposits and other active contaminants. Plain old dirt and dust are also far less likely to remain for long. The result? You need less frequent car washing so you could actually save money at a self-service car wash in the long run. Moreover, when you do wash the car you find the job is so much quicker and easier.
- When we wash a car that has not enjoyed the benefits of car waxing, we often find that water spots remain, which are particularly more obvious with darker-color paint. Those spots are actually mineral deposits of calcium, limestone, magnesium, and other sediments that can harden to become semi-permanent features. Once again, the protective barrier of car waxing helps prevent this happening.
