Wax On, Wax Off

Waxed CarSure, everyone knows you’re supposed to wax your car, but how important is it really? You can guess our answer: extremely important. A good wax is what stands between your automobile and rusting, chipping, scratches, and all that dirt flying across the interstate. You may not need a wax a month, but you need several a year to keep your car in tiptop shape. If rain no longer beads evenly across your paint, your last wax job has worn thin. With that in mind, Towne Lake’s Carwash and Detail offers 3 varieties of waxing for car enthusiasts of every price bracket.

Spray Wax

Spray waxes are quick, easy, and inexpensive. They give your car that just-off-the-lot shine and offer a thin layer of protection from the elements. It’s a great way to achieve the glossy look for a night on the town. A clean car can go a long way toward making a great first impression!

Orbit Wax

Orbital waxers have been around since the 1950s, and there’s a reason they’re still our #2 waxing technique. These machines protect and shine better than a simple spray wax. The waxing process is quicker and less expensive than hand washing. Orbital waxing offers a great finish—even up close—giving your vehicle a polished finish.

Hand Wax

There’s no substitute for good old-fashioned elbow grease. Spray waxes make your paint flash in the sun and orbit waxes offer some protection on the road, but there’s nothing better than the detail you’ll get with a hand buff. Hand waxing lasts longer and protects better than other methods. It can disguise scratches and prevent rust. It also makes your routine washes more efficient and extends the cleanliness of your vehicle. Every car deserves several detailed waxes a year to maintain its value and keep it looking good from every angle.

Remember to wash your car before you wax to prevent trapping contaminates against your paint. Then decide which variety of wax is right for you, and show your car you’ve taken a shine to her.
