How Often Should You Wash Your Vehicle?

Everyone has different advice when it comes to how often you should wash your car. We all know people who think the answer is never, but if you are one of them, you might be doing long term damage. Keeping your car clean is the best way to prevent rust and keep your car looking new.

Pollutants, road salt, ocean salt, bird droppings, and bugs all contain acids and other chemicals that will eventually break through the protective coating on your vehicle if not removed regularly. Sun heats the wax and breaks the protective barrier. You also need to pay attention to the underneath of your vehicle, too. Washing your car regularly can help prevent damage caused by these substances.

Basic Auto Sales recommends washing your car at least once a week to prevent damage. Doing this will help your ride last a long time and may prevent or delay costly maintenance.
