Why It Is Important to Wash Your Car in the Summer

Keeping Your Car Clean in Towne LakeWhen I learned how to drive, my father taught me some very important tips about taking care of my car.  He taught me how to change a tire, check my oil, and a few of the other basics.  When he handed over the keys to my hand-me-down car (anything with four wheels is amazing, especially when you’re 16,) he handed me a prepaid carwash tickets for our local service where I grew up.  After he handed them over, he mentioned how important it was to protect your investment.  Of course, at 16, I didn’t realize that a car was a major investment.  It wasn’t until I bought a car that actually had a price tag on it, that I realized that a car deserves as much care on the outside as it does on the inside.

Here are a few reasons why you should wash your car in the summer:

  • Washing your car is as important as getting a routine car maintenance.  It maintains and preserves your vehicle’s finish from everything that is thrown its way from day-to-day use.
  • After a summer road trip, it’s important to wash off bird droppings, dead bugs, and any debris that comes with travel.  The acidity in droppings and bugs can penetrate deep into your car’s paint, leaving only a few (expensive) solutions to preventing from further damage.
  • It’s important to wash your car after a period of rainy weather like we have had over the past few weeks here in Towne Lake and Woodstock.  Acid rain, and water kicked up by other cars on the roads and highways can damage your paint.  It’s always a good idea to get your car washed after a storm.

Whether you are driving around Woodstock, venturing out onto the North Georgia trails, or taking a road trip to the beach, it’s important for you to maintain a clean exterior.  Have you ever had mud, sand, or bugs covering your car?  Did you think much of it?  Leave a comment and let us know!
