Consider for a moment how much you rely on your vehicle. Rain or shine, you expect your car or truck to get you from point A to point B.
Now think about the cleanliness of your vehicle. Are the windows and tires caked in dirt? Is the interior filled with fast food wrappers and random junk?
If you’re begrudgingly nodding your head yes to either of these questions, then it’s probably time to head to the local car wash more frequently. Here are some reasons why you should clean your car or truck more than just a few times a year:
Remember that new car smell from back in the day? We’re willing to bet that when you first purchased your vehicle, you kept it spotless for as long as possible. You were proud to have a car that looked good and smelled showroom fresh.
Over time, though, it became more difficult to keep your vehicle clean. So you stopped making trips to the car wash altogether. A piece of advice: These regular cleanings we’re talking about don’t need to take hours away from your day.
Simply wash the exterior, vacuum the interior, and move on with the rest of your day.
Dirt can be damaging
Have you ever seen someone write the words ‘Wash Me’ on a car window with dirt? Many drivers don’t realize that dirt can be damaging to their car or truck’s exterior.
Dirt that is left unwashed can actually scratch the vehicle’s paint. It doesn’t take long for that scratch to eventually turn into a chip and rust. Dirt also has the ability to remove the protective coat and fade your car’s color.
You will be a safer driver
Loveland’s first snow of the season is just around the corner. The last thing you want to worry about is driving down I-25 in a vehicle that’s covered in dirt and debris, in addition to snow and frost. So think of regular washes as a way to prevent you from being unsafe on the road.
You will save money on gas
Here’s a fun fact: The dirt on your vehicle causes drag, which forces your car or truck to burn more fuel. A clean car is 10 percent more fuel-efficient than a dirty car. So, unless you want to keep throwing away money at the pump, take your vehicle for a wash more often.
It prevents illness
You’re constantly scrubbing the bathrooms, wiping down the kitchen, and mopping the floors. In fact, you go above and beyond to ensure your family members stay healthy. That said, why wouldn’t you take a similar cleanliness approach when it comes to your car?
Try to imagine how many germs might be in your vehicle from trips to your office, your child’s school, the grocery store, etc. By scheduling routine washes, you’re also investing in the health of your loved ones.
