waxing car at local car wash Waxing your car is important to maintain the value and appearance of your vehicle. Keeping wax on your car keeps the dirt off of your paint. Wax acts as a barrier to increase the longevity of your clear coat and finish. Cool Wave Car Wash recommends waxing your car every three months or once a season. Waxing your vehicle offers the following benefits:

  1. Protecting the exterior. Waxing your car minimizes the harm caused by bird droppings, pieces of gravel, wind borne dust, corrosive rainwater and other hazards. Protecting the exterior of your car will maximize its resale value.
  2. Promoting a long-lasting shine. The sun’s UV rays can fade even the nicest paint jobs. Waxing is an easy way to guard against this problem, keeping your vehicle looking its best for years to come.
  3. Maintaining resale value. If you’re like most of us, then at some point you will sell or trade in your vehicle for a new one. The time you spend  waxing your car now will garner a better asking price down the road.

As you can see, waxing your car is a smart move. Car care experts recommend performing this important step every three months. You should begin by giving your car a thorough cleaning to remove dust, dirt, bugs, and other contaminants. Apply the wax evenly across the surface, taking care to not use too much. It’s best to wax your vehicle in the shade to prevent the sun from drying it out too quickly.
