When to Wash Your Car

We here at Audi Livermore in Livermore, CA are divided over a single question: auto car wash or car wash by hand? We're still debating. What's not in question is the need to wash your car regularly. It keeps your car looking professional and new and helps protect your car's paint, finish, and undercarriage. How often should you wash your car? Wash it weekly or twice monthly. Here's why.

The Twice Monthly Wash

Twice monthly washes are a viable option if you live in a mild climate and you park your car in a covered garage. You may need to wash more frequently as seasonal changes expose your car to more harsh irritants.

The Weekly Wash

Weekly washes are a must if you live in any climate, park your car in the open and commute daily. These conditions constantly expose your car to dust, tree sap, pollen, airborne pollutants, bug guts and bird droppings, which can corrode your car's paint, finish, and undercarriage.

Exterior and undercarriage corrosion leads to compromised function and, possibly, repairs. A weekly wash can easily forestall (or greatly reduce) this outcome.
