We’ve always known that car wash systems and automatic car washes are good for your car. Recently, AAA Mid-Atlantic advised drivers that frequent car washes can actually extend the life of your vehicle.
Snow, slush and salt all take a toll on your car during the winter months. Regularly clearing away that mess is important.
“Motorists should wash away any traces of the recent snow and ice storm from their vehicles without delay to protect their vehicle’s fine finish, exterior and interior, advises AAA Mid-Atlantic,” wrote Mary Ann Barton at www.arlington-va.patch.com
“However, many motorists are often unaware of the fact that the chemical arsenal used by area road crews to clear and clean area streets of ice and snow is taking a toll on their vehicles.”
Failing to regularly clear these chemicals can harm your vehicle’s:
• Resale value
• Expected life on the road
It’s important for driver’s to use a car wash that does a thorough job removing harmful agents—both on the exterior and in the undercarriage.
Be sure to talk to your customers about how important this is and how they need to remember to maintain the seen and unseen parts of their car.
