WHY WAX YOUR CAR?

Friday April 26, 2019

Calling Prestige mobile cleaning will make washing your car less of a chore. If you could never figure whether it’s worth it to follow up that wash with a restorative layer of wax, this article is for you. Is waxing your car truly worth it?

It is definitely worth it, Keep reading to see why.


What Wax Does.

When that car rolls off the factory line looking all shiny, it’s because of Wax! It lays on top of your car’s protective clear coat, sealing in the paint job underneath.

As you add miles on, leave it outside for extended periods of time, and let nature take over, the clear wax coat can begin to wear. Parking in a garage and avoiding trees when parking will help the wax last longer. That’s what it’s there for, protecting the primary color paint layer from any damage like chips and scratches, tree sap, dirt, and bugs.

It also protects fading, discoloring, and oxidation from sun damage.


How Long Does Wax on Cars Last?

Since wax acts as your vehicle’s most exposed outer coating, it won’t last forever. How long it lasts depends on a variety of factors, including the weather and where you park it at night. If you park your car in the garage instead of outside, it may last longer.

As time and the seasons change, the wax layer is used up and the clear coat becomes susceptible to accelerated wear, you do not want the clear coat to chip. When the factors mentioned above attack your car without wax, you might notice your car starting to lose the shine it once had. This is when you should contact Prestige mobile cleaning to restore that protective barrier.


Car Waxing Benefits

There are many reasons to wax your car. Here are a few to consider.

Keep your car looking new. Waxing maintains shiny, eye-catching new-car look of your vehicle’s exterior.

Get the most out of a paint job. Reapplying your vehicle’s protective wax coat at least every six months keeps the base paint layer intact as well as the clear coat. Otherwise, with every wash, you’d actually be scrubbing the paint.

Save money on touch-ups. The paint-matching process has evolved quite a bit over the years, and filling in scratches and chips has become easier. However, minor scratches and dings can get costly. Prevent paint-level scratches from the start by applying wax at least twice a year (every 6 months).

Waxing is able to protect your car’s paint and keep it looking glossy and fresh. After a wash at your home or office by Prestige mobile cleaning.
