If our car is looking cleaner, not just the exterior but the interior as well, it will help de-clutter our mind. It is surprising how a clean car can affect the way we feel about it. Additionally, car washes can protect our investment. A car wash helps protect the paint on our car by clearing away acid rain, dirt and road salt that can cause rust and corrosion to our car.
Additionally, if we are concerned about reducing your carbon footprint, washing our car manually actually uses more water than at a car wash. Think about it like this, we are running a hose, filling up a bucket with soapy water and then spraying down our car to wipe off the soapy residue. The excess water just gets wasted. Car washes can recycle a portion of the water that is used in the washes (it has been cleaned and treated before reuse). The average at home car wash uses 150 gallons of water while an auto-car wash uses approximately 35 gallons of water.

Mechanics explain automatic car wash benefits
Over the years there has been a lot of discussion over car washes and whether or not they are safe for our vehicle. In our blog post on preventing rust and corrosion, we learned a simple wash and rinse can help us avoid a brake repair or a visit to our mechanic.
So, what is the best way to wash our vehicle?
The first automatic car washes appeared in the 1930s and were similar to the typical conveyor-style car wash we are familiar with today. These tunnel-like buildings pull vehicles through on a conveyor and use a serious of rotating brushes, nozzles and pads. These types of car washes have been criticized for being too rough on a vehicle’s exterior and may actually grind dirt and debris into the paint causing scratches and imperfections. When visiting this type of washing facility, ask about the quality of brushes and detergents to make sure they are safe for our vehicle.
“Touch less” or “laser” washes have become increasingly popular over the years. These car washes use pressurized nozzles with water and detergents to clean the vehicle. However, the pressurized water can also be damaging to our vehicle if it already has deep scratches or peeling paint and rust. These touchless washes are a great choice for drivers who have inspected their vehicle’s finish for peeling and flaking.
Car washes are great because they are quick and easy, but we can gain a lot from washing a car ourselves. First, we are probably not strong enough to scrub the paint off the car, so we do not risk damaging the finish. Second, we notice dents, scratches, or rust that we might not have noticed before. And finally, there is a sense of pride that comes with maintaining a vehicle.
Keeping a car clean adds life and value to our car. Choose whichever method works best for our vehicle and our wallet! To read more about freezer ASRS click here.
