5 Reasons to Keep your Car Washed
Most of us spend a decent amount of time in the car, so it’s important to keep it clean. Here are 5 of the biggest advantages to keeping your car washed.
- Dirt is Damaging
As dirt builds up on your vehicle, moisture becomes trapped underneath. Then when you drive down the freeway the dirt moves slightly causing tiny scratches. Eventually that can wear on the clear coat and expose the paint which can lead to rust and corrosion.
Also, the better condition of your car when it’s time to sell, the better re-sale value it will have. Overall, having a clean car will extend the life of the vehicle.
- Shiny is Pretty
Who doesn’t like a clean shiny car? If you’re out in public a clean car can elevate your pride and people will make positive first judgements about you. You also won’t find any ‘wash me’ notes written into the dirt on the back window.
According to local Littleton Real Estate Agent, Mike Lies, if you are selling your home, a clean car parked out front will let potential buyers know that you take care of your things. A clean car could help you sell your house faster.
- Driver Safety
A dirty car could lead to an accident if you have bug splattered windows that you can’t see out of. Or you might be dragging debris behind you that can cause an accident if it flies off onto another car.
Having a clean, vacuumed car inside is just as important as the outside. Our shoes carry a ton of germs that could lead to getting sick. A good vacuum, wipe down of the seats , and cleaning of the floor mats will help kill bacteria and keep rodents out of your car.
- Fuel Efficiency
The popular television show, MythBusters proved that a clean car is more aerodynamic as there aren’t dirt particles causing air drag. Overall, they found that dirty cars burn up to 10% more fuel than a clean car. So overall you will save yourself money by having a washed car.
- Support Local Business
By getting a regular car wash you will support the local car wash businesses in Littleton. It’s important to shop local, so you keep the money in the local economy. Also, a professional car wash uses less water than washing your car at home. Also, the water is directed to a water treatment plant rather than just ending up directly in the drain at your house.
A weekly car wash is a small investment that can pay off with all the above benefits. You might even save money by avoiding expensive damage to your vehicle. With a little bit of effort, you will be surprised by how great your car looks and how much pride you have in it when its kept sparkling clean.
