How regularly you wash your car? For some, it’s a ritual they make a priority every week in order to keep their car looking its best. For others, it’s something they only do when they notice caked on dirt that has turned their car a completely different color. No matter which crowd you’re in, it’s important to know why washing your car regularly is actually a great idea. Four of the biggest advantages, in particular, are listed below and worth considering.
REASON #1 - ELEVATES YOUR PRIDE
How do you feel driving or even sitting in a dirty car? It is actually very demoralizing and we wouldn’t advise anyone to try it. When you sit or drive in a clean car, the feeling you get alone is bound to keep you happy and morally elevated all day long.
REASON #2 - GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Cleaning your car’s exterior is the perfect time to check for things that may be working loose, such as license plates and frames; headlight and taillight lenses; mirrors, broken cables or hoses etc.
While washing the car, pop the hood and take a look inside the engine compartment. Look for loose wires; broken cable ties (you don’t want a wire hanging and getting snarled in the fan); loose connections on the battery; loose connections on the air cleaner cover, and so forth. Check to be sure there is no corrosion built up on the battery connections, as well.
REASON #3 - EXTERIOR FINISH
When you take your car in to get washed, soap and water will brush the impurities away from the autobody to help prevent the deterioration of your paint and even the different parts of your car. In time, this can improve the condition of your car and its overall longevity. This is especially true if you have your engine washed, because removing debris and dirt from this area can help keep your engine healthier in the long-run.
REASON #4 - IMPROVING THE VALUE
Are you planning on selling your vehicle or even trading it in? Even if you’re going to do this months or years in the future, it’s important to do what you can to keep your car looking great now. Regular car washes are a big part of this, as they can help prevent rust, scratches, dull paint, and other issues that take away from the look of your car.
REASON #5 - IMPROVES FUEL EFFICIENCY
As funny as it sounds, this has been proven to be true by experts. It has been observed that clean cars are 10% more fuel efficient than dirty cars. What does this really mean? The answer is simple: a dirty car creates drag which causes it to burn more fuel. So, if you want to conserve fuel for your daily movements, it is advised you get your car cleaned on a regular basis.
REASON #6 - IMPROVES YOUR HEALTH
Germs cause diseases and the fastest means of germs’ movement is through dirt. While you might make it a priority to clean your bathrooms, kitchen, living room, and house surroundings to prevent germs infestation, you forget that you come in contact with your car on a daily basis. Leaving your car dirty could result in serious health challenges both for you and your family. Try your best to keep your car clean on a regular basis to ensure you and your family stay healthy.
