Benefits of Waxing Your Car
Here at Spiffy’s, we believe that a full-service car wash is the best choice for keeping your car clean (or your truck, SUV or Van). With something of a DIY Revolution going on all-over-the-place, it’s important to remember that letting professionals handle an important job is often a better, more long-term decision. As Tuscaloosa’s only full-service car wash we provide a long list of great services to maintain your vehicles exterior, and the interior, as well. One particular service offered at Spiffy’s may lead to a variety of surprising benefits, some of which can positively impact your car’s performance and even your safety. Here are 5 reasons to bring your car into Spiffy’s for a hand wax:
1. Protect your car against scratches.
Whether you own or lease your vehicle, you must contend with scratches, dents, dings, and other types of wear and tear. Waxing can’t prevent this damage entirely. But it can do a better job than most primers and paints. A clear wax coat will seal in the paint and provide a shield against bird doo, exhaust, UV light, sand and grit.
2. Protects car exterior, paint & finish.
When you wash an unwaxed car, the grit and grime can scrape against the paint (or primer) and further degrade the surface. Wax creates a barrier between the paint and the outside world.
3. Reduce the cost of repairs and refinishing.
If you lease, the dealership will want to inspect your vehicle at the end of the lease period. If there’s substantial damage – including discoloration, scratches, or paint issues – the costs will come out of your pocket.
4. Take better care of your car to become a better driver.
Some research suggests that owners who drive clean cars drive safer. The theory makes sense. If you’re excited to drive – that is, if you keep your car clean of debris and wash and vacuum regularly – you’ll be more likely to take other actions to keep your car running well. For instance, you might be more likely to change your fluids on time, per the manufacturer’s recommendations. You might keep your windshield cleaner… and thus be able to see the road more clearly, etc. By investing in good car care, you indirectly invest in your own safety.
5. Thanks to modern synthetic formulations, it’s easy to apply a good, even coat of wax.
Waxing your car is no longer a whole Sunday afternoon job. In fact, with modern technologies, you can apply a durable coat of wax rapidly. Depending on your car use, you may only need to wax 2-4 times a year.
6. Less Frequent Car Washes needed
Water and dirt tend to run down paint and not stick to the surface. If you drive a waxed car in the rain, back to back with a non-waxed car, you’ll notice the next time the cars are dry that the waxed car is noticeably cleaner.
7. UV protection for cars.
Maybe not relevant in sun-deficient states like Oregon and Washington, but here in Alabama you can greatly delay the peeling and discoloration of your paint (black cars have been known to peel after just 4 years in the Southwest…yes, that’s FACTORY original paint).
8. Make Your Car Look Good!
Lets face it! A waxed car looks better, period. It brings out the brilliant shine of your car that a traditional car wash wouldn’t.
