Maintaining the outside of your car is just as important as the interior parts, making car washes essential. After a thorough wash on your vehicle, you should include a waxing step in your cleaning routine. While it's imperative to keep your car clean, waxing your automobile has long-term benefits that make it worth the extra dollars. A car wax is more than just a shiny paint job. Here are the other benefits of getting your car waxed:
Protection Against Scratches
The chemical composition of wax includes petroleum distillates, natural oils, and other ingredients that harden the wax on the paint. Wax offers a clear finish on top of your car's paint, giving an additional layer of protection.
Prevents Sun Damage
If you often leave your vehicle in the sun, you might notice faded paint spots. The sun's UV rays can cause imperfections to your car, and the wax can act as a shield similar to sunscreen. With frequent usage, wax can provide long-term protection from the sun.
Wax Masks Paint Imperfections
If your car has any outer layer paint damage, the wax can help camouflage the flaws. Even though the wax can't make paint scratches disappear entirely, it can fill shallow scratches and make them look glossed over.
A Longer Lasting Clean
After a wax job, you may notice that your vehicle stays fresh and clean for an extended time. The wax provides a glossy, protective surface that makes dirt, water, and particles less likely to adhere to the surface of your car. It also enables dirt and grime to rinse off easier on your next wash.
Helps the Resale Value
Cars that look aged with faded or chipped paint may result in a lower resale value. Paint color that is in good condition, free of marks and scratches, can increase a car's resale value.
Detailing and consistent waxes are an essential part of extending your vehicle's lifespan and retaining the optimal resale value. Deep cleans that include wax are just as important as regular maintenance services such as oil changes and tire rotations. If you need your car detailed and waxed, visit Goose Automotive.
