WHY DO YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR VEHICLE WASHED? LET’S FIND OUT!

April 30th, 2019 by

Our team at Patrick MINI makes it a priority to keep our Schaumburg, IL consumers updated about how to care for their vehicles. If you keep your vehicle washed, then it will protect it from damage. Dirt, pollen, dust, and debris can cause rust, scratches, and damage to the protective coat, which will decrease the value of your vehicle.

With a clean exterior, you also get better fuel efficiency as opposed to a vehicle that’s dirty. A clean car is 10 percent more fuel efficient than a vehicle that is dirty. Keeping your vehicle clean also cut down on your exposure to germs because germs can travel through dirt that is on your vehicle’s exterior.

How often should you give your vehicle a wash? At least every few months, but you should wash it weekly if you have a long daily commute or live in an area with extremely hot temperatures. If you keep your car parked in a garage most of the time, then you can wash it about once a month. Need help keeping your car clean? Reach out to our Service team today for your options!
