By far the most common time of year for people to wash their car is during the summer. Why? For starters, it’s much warmer outside, which makes it easier and more enjoyable to be splashing water about. When it’s 10 degrees outside, nobody wants to go out and wash their car. On top of that, the summer is the time of year when most people like to look their best, and that extends to their car. The summer time is also the most common time of the year for high schools and other organizations to do car wash fundraisers. When most people think of washing their car, they think of the summer. It’s just the time of year when more people do that.
While it’s always important to wash your car on a regular basis to keep it from collecting dirt and debris, the summer is actually not the time of year when it’s most important to do that. Believe it or not, the winter is actually the time of year when it’s best to wash your car consistently. There are a couple of reasons for this, but it primarily has to do with the salt that cities and states put on the road when road conditions get icy. There’s a chemical that local and state governments put on the road to help your tires gain traction, which is a good thing when it comes to safety. However, that chemical is actually incredibly corrosive, and when you’re driving along in your car on it it’s getting kicked up into the bottom of your car. If it’s allowed to stay there for a long time, it can actually start to corrode your pipes and start to cause serious problems for your car. In the end, it can lead to thousands of dollars worth of your damage for your vehicle, something that nobody wants to have to pay.
This is the key reason why it’s so important to wash your car on a regular basis. You need to make sure that you’re getting that salt out from under your car so that it’s not allowed to start corroding away at the underbelly of your car. Of course, the mud and ice that gets kicked up on your car can also cause damage. The winter is just messier, which means that although it might be more fun to wash your car in the summer, it’s actually a better idea to do it more often in the winter.
On top of washing your car during the winter it’s also a good idea to visit an auto detailing shop on a regular basis. During the winter, you’re going to be tracking all sorts of mud and junk into your vehicle, and if you let it sit there for a long time it’s going to stain your interior. Thus, it’s not only good to wash your car more frequently during the winter, but it’s also good to have it detailed more often. So, visit King of Clean Car Wash this winter and have your car washed and detailed on a regular basis.
