How Often Should You Wash Your Car?

Are you wondering  how often you should  get your car washed? The team at Towne Lake’s Car Wash and Detail knows that the frequency in which you should wash your car depends on several factors. In this post our team shares two of the main factors that determine how often you should get your car washed.

  • Where is your car parked? Whether you live in a big city or the country, if your vehicle is parked near an industrial area, or near heavy traffic or train tracks you will most likely need to get your car washed more often than those who do not live or park their car in those areas. 
  • Garage Parked cars don’t have to be washed as often simply because they are protected from, dust, dirt and weather. If you keep your car parked in the garage you can wait a little longer between car washes. You will probably want to get your automobile washed at least once a month.

Weather and Climate:

  • In Woodstock, GA we have a pretty mild and temperate climate. With an average of around 213 sunny days a year finding a pretty day to have your car wash isn’t a problem. Rain, sunshine, wind, dirt and salt all affect how often you should wash your car.
  • Heat can damage the coat of paint on your car by accelerating damage to your clear coat by further activating the acids in bird droppings, sap, and even bug guts. If you let this stuff sit on the surface, in heat, for a long time, erosion will begin.

For most automobiles to look their absolute best, no matter the climate or parking conditions, it is recommended to get your car or truck washed at least 2-3 times per month.
