Why It Is Important to Wash Your Car Regularly

How often do you wash your car? Do you wait until it’s filthy before giving it a scrub? Here is why it’s important to wash your car regularly.

Dirt Is Damaging

When dirt builds up on your car it acts almost like sandpaper, wearing away your paint. Worse still, when dirt and dust mix with water/rain, it becomes even more abrasive and can do some serious damage to your car.


Simply put, a clean car just looks better! We live in a world where appearances are everything and a dirty car can reflect poorly on the first impression we give, particularly when it comes to our professional life. Rocking up to a business meeting in a dirty car is never a good idea!


Cleaning your car is the perfect time to check for any maintenance issues that might need to be addressed. Whether that’s a crack or chip in your windshield, dints on the exterior, a broken headlight or anything else you may not notice until you give your car a good once over.

Resale Value

Even if you don’t care about how your car looks, you probably still care about its resale value! Needless to say, a well maintained, clean, shiny car with minimal rust will always attract a higher sale price.

Protect Your Paint

The paint on your car is finished with a clear coat. This keeps the car looking shiny and new, but it also protects your paint from wear and tear. When your clear coat is compromised by abrasive dirt and grime, it leaves the paint underneath vulnerable to damage that can be much more costly to fix.
