Washing Your Car and Getting the Most of Your Investment
If you knew the list of the benefits of washing your vehicle, you would find the time to keep the car cleaned on a weekly basis. The weather here in McKinney, TX can be especially harsh. Dust and dirt stick on your car quickly, especially after the rain.
Surface Damage to the Paint
One of the best benefits of bringing your vehicle to The Car Wash Zone in Mckinney is that the high-powered water jets will remove many of the contaminants on the surface and tires. Road tar, tree sap, dead bugs (yuck), and even bird droppings (double yuck), are sitting on the surface of the paint and eating away at the paint surface each day they are not washed away. Inclement weather hits the McKinney area frequently. Rain and wind do not remove these contaminants, they only make it worse.
Scratching the Paint
In order to protect the paint, regular washes will help. The dirt that is all over the surface mixed with rain will begin to scratch the surface of the paint as time passes. The combination of wind from traveling at high speeds mixed with rain scrub and scratch the surface of the paint until bare metal is revealed. Washing the car regularly will help to retain the value of the vehicle and keep the paint looking pristine.
Harder Working Auto Parts
By not getting your vehicle cleaned, dirt gets trapped in the undercarriage and will accumulate. The longer you go between washes, the more that excess build-up increases, forcing your engine to work harder to move the car down the road. That trapped debris might not seem like much, but it upsets the aerodynamic balance of the car and wrecks fuel economy because moving parts in the engine are now working harder to move the car.
Dirty Tires Need Cleaning
When the auto is not being cleaned weekly, dirt is building up in and around the tires. Muddy and dusty road conditions in Texas only add to the problem, which could negatively impact the way the brakes work in an emergency. By having your whip washed on a regular basis, those high-powered scrubbing machines blow away dirt trapped in the brake rotor, cylinders, and calipers too. Less dirt on and around the tire will improve the safety of the vehicle.
Keeping your vehicle clean should not be considered as a chore, this is simply a way to help protect your investment for years to come. Start getting into a routine about cleaning your vehicle on a weekly basis and it will go a long way in helping to keep your ride looking great and running in a peak state.
