Why Waxing Your Car Is Important
Read Over These 5 Reasons on Why Waxing Your Car is So Important
Everyone has heard that it’s a good idea to regularly wax their car, but not everybody knows why. We get asked all the time what benefits people can gain by waxing their car, so we decided to post five great reasons.
SHINE- Wax is the easiest way to get your car looking glossy and new. A carnauba based wax generally will provide wonderful depth and clarity, and good protection.
PROTECTION- If your paint is left unprotected by a wax or other sealant then it’s at risk. Bugs, acid rain, and other corrosive materials can settle into your paint and etch it, causing damage nothing short of repainting can fix this (expensive by the way). A layer of wax will create a barrier between your paint and the rest of the world so that these contaminants become embedded in the wax instead of your car.
CLEANS EASIER- One great reason to wax your car that many people might not know is that a wax will make your car A LOT easier to get clean. Inevitably, you will get bugs, sap, and all other sorts of things dripping onto your car. Wax will prevent them from making contact with your paint. They will then be wiped away with a car wash or will come off when the wax is removed. Without a coat of wax, these things may need a full detail to be properly removed.
PREVENTS PAINT CHIPS- Little paint chips can occur when you’re driving at high speeds and tiny rocks and stones jump up and hit your paint. Car wax smoothes the paint surface and will reduce the friction between debris and your car. This debris is more likely to slide off your car rather than damage it. This will help prevent your car from becoming the victim of little rock and paint chips which are not only unsightly but can be expensive to repaint correctly.
FILL IN SCRATCHES- Wax will not remove scratches from your car. However, it can fill some of them in. When shallow scratches are filled in by wax they become much less apparent, and or not noticeable at all.
