Washing Your Car Regularly Does More Than Keep it Clean

April 18th, 2019 by

With the warmer temperatures on the rise, Barnes Crossing Kia wanted to inform you of the importance of exterior maintenance so you can get the most out of your car. Did you know that washing your car does more than making it shine? When you wash your car regularly, you're actually protecting the clear coat finish, which ultimately helps maintain the paint color.

As you drive around town, your car naturally picks up particles from the environment that are harmful to the paintwork. Those particles include dirt, road debris, and even certain bugs and insects that can stick to the paintwork like glue. Car washing is also preventative maintenance for the potential of rust. Over time, rust can occur if dirt accumulates.

Still, the most beneficial outcome of washing your car is a beautiful shine! However, you should also incrementally apply wax to further protect the clearcoat. Feel free to contact our service department for more information!
