Spring has sprung in Florida, and you may have already noticed pollen coating your vehicle each morning. Aside from a maintaining a clean visual appearance, having your car washed regularly can have other benefits, as well.
Limit Damage to Your Car
Did you know your vehicle’s paint and exterior coatings serve as barriers that prevent rust to your frame? Usual suspects that cause a dirty car like dust, tar and insects can have a negative impact on the durability of this barrier over time, and consistent car washing helps limit the damage caused by dirt.
Living near the ocean can also slowly damage your vehicle due to salt. Washing the paint regularly can help slow ocean-related troubles, and be sure to give your car a wash if you drive on the beach or nearby.
Avoid Visibility Concerns
Even just a light layer of dirt or debris on your vehicle can cause visibility problems, especially during sunrise, sunset or during the night. A car wash is a simple way to make sure you can see clearly and prevent accidents!
Improve Your Mood
Keeping things clean is good for you, and it’s backed by science! Having a clean environment can help boost your mood, and giving the interior a vacuum every so often along with an exterior wash may help reduce stress and “road rage.”
