Washing Your Car to Improve Its Lifespan

When I bought my first car, my father gave me an important piece of advice. He told me to wash the vehicle every week in order to keep it safe from rust and other damage. I thought that it was a valuable tip, so I followed his instructions to the letter of the law. Now 20 years later, my car still looks nice, while a lot of my friends' cars look like they were pulled out of a lake at some point. This blog is all about washing your car and getting it detailed to improve its lifespan and to keep it looking incredible.


When to Have Your Car Detailed

There are auto detailing services out there that will do a great job of cleaning your car inside and out. These are just a few examples of times when you should call one of these companies to schedule an appointment for a full detailing of your vehicle.

Before Heading On a Road Trip

If you are planning on heading on a long road trip, you'll probably need to make sure that your car is ready for the journey. Along with changing the oil, checking your tires, and taking other similar steps, you'll probably want to make sure that your car is nice and clean, too. After all, this is a good way to make sure that your journey is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. 

After Returning from a Road Trip

Not only is it a good idea to have your car detailed before heading out on a road trip, but it might also be a good idea to have it detailed when you get back, especially if you're on the road for a long time. After all, you might end up eating and drinking in your car a lot while you're on the road, and you might get in and out a lot with dirt on your shoes while you're on your adventure. After you return, you can have your car detailed so that it's as clean as it was on the day that you left.

Before Going Out on a Nice Date or Outing

If you have a big date planned with your significant other or someone new, you might already be planning on dressing up and looking your best. You might not have thought about doing anything to make your car look its best, however. If you have your car detailed before your date or outing, however, you can show your best side when you arrive to pick up your date or when you head out with your spouse for a nice outing.

Before Putting Your Car Up for Sale

If you are planning on putting your car up for sale, you might not be planning on spending any money on it if you can help it. However, it's not a bad idea to look into having it detailed before you put it up for sale. Then, your car will look better in the pictures that you might take for the online listing, and it will look a lot more appealing to any interested buyers who might come and take a look at it, too.
