Winter Drivers: How to Keep Your Car Clean During the Snowy Months

The benefits of washing your car weekly, especially in the winter month, can really help to preserve your investment and keep your vehicle looking amazing. If you think that washing your car weekly is a chore that you could put off for a few more weeks, you might want to rethink that position.


The reasons to wash your car weekly in the winter might surprise you, but the long-term benefits far outweigh those excuses to put this service off.


Keeping Your Field of Vision Clear

Get stuck behind a salt truck or have another vehicle splash slushy puddles on your vehicle, and it could be a real chore just to see out the windows this winter. That salty water dries quickly and leaves a thick film on the windows that make it impossible to see clearly. Each time you leave the car wash, your mirrors and windows are crystal-clear and make driving safer. Not only can you see out the windshield, but all around your vehicle now.


Damaging the Surface of Your Vehicle

The longer that the salty mix dries on the surface of your vehicle, the more potential damage is being done to the protective surface of the car. The salt and dirt on the car will mix with rain, snow, and sleet, and scratch up the surface of the paint more and more each week. If the car is wet and you’re driving at high speeds, that mix acts like sandpaper, scratching up the clear coat of the paint each time you drive. Even a simple auto-detailing package is better than doing nothing.


Salt Can Cause the Undercarriage to Rust

The damage being done to your vehicle that you can’t see is perhaps the most costly of them all. The powerful jets at the car wash can easily remove things like bird droppings, dead bugs, tree sap, and road tar, some of the things slowly eating away at the paint surface if not washed away frequently. But the undercarriage jets at Quick Quack Car Wash help to remove the salt that is eating away at the undercarriage and those moving parts. Salty water can damage the frame and negatively impact the entire front end suspension system.


Your car being kept clean all winter will certainly make it easier to retain the resale value for years to come. A trip to the car wash for auto detailing is painless and will keep your vehicle looking like-new all year.
