So, here’s what you need to know about washing your car. To begin, even if you park your car in a garage, there are sometimes when you go to the store or other places where your vehicle will be subject to the outdoor elements. Edge cover while your car is protected you from the bugs and dust and three as you drive on the Arizona roads, that also means that all of those things are coming into contact with your car. This is of course normal, but something you still need to watch out for it. Why? Because of rust. If a bug splatters on your car or a bird leaves droppings on your vehicle, this can cause the paint to rust, which can turn into a greater issue if you leave it alone. Likewise, excessive dust can also scratch your car and leave marks as well. So, the best way to prevent these things from happening is to keep up with your vehicle’s exterior maintenance. That is why we suggest washing your car every week or every two weeks in order to get all of the grime and dirt off of it and keep it looking just as nice as the day that it left our car lot.
