Are you washing your car as often as you should be? For most drivers, the answer is no. However, you can see a number of benefits by washing your car regularly. Here’s the best part: with a convenient car wash near me, you don’t have to hand wash your car. Instead, we’ll do the work for you so you can enjoy your day.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest benefits you get from washing your car more regularly at our automated car wash.
Remove the Grime and Save Your Paint
Normal driving can take a toll on your car’s paint job. Not only do you have the natural dirt and dust found on the road, but your car also has to contend with chemicals such as oil, ice melt/salt, and more. The road is a dirty place, and your tires kick up all kinds of substances, which can eat through your paint.
Let’s not forget those buggy summer evenings we have here in North Carolina. Insects can be acidic, which can also eat away at your paint. The same is true of bird droppings. If you don’t take care of these messes, they can cause major damage.
Our automated car wash gently removes the dirt and other debris that has collected on your car. You can also select bug prep and other special treatments to prevent build-up in the future.
An Unobstructed View Keeps You Safe
Over time, the grime from driving can actually make a less safe driver. Dirt can obstruct your view by building up on your windshield, windows, and mirrors. It can even cause issues with your backup camera if you have one. You might not notice this build-up since it happens slowly over time, but you’ll definitely notice the difference after going through our car wash!
We recommend washing your car about once a week if you are a typical driver. If you opt for one of our pre-paid monthly passes, you can wash your car as often as you want for one low monthly rate. We even have a loyalty program so you’ll earn points you can redeem toward free washes in the future.
Remember, you can also stay safe on the road by bringing in your car for regular tune ups. We’ll make sure your engine is running optimally, as well as look for safety issues. Our licensed mechanics will check over your entire vehicle to ensure there are no potential hazards such as break pads that need to be replaced or tires with low tread.
Additionally, we are a North Carolina vehicle inspection station. You’re required to have your vehicle inspected every year to ensure it can safely operate. We’ll get your inspection done quickly and can perform other maintenance (such as oil changes) during the same appointment to save you time.
Protect Your Investment
We noted previously that dirt, bugs, and other substances can ruin your paint job. However, if you let it go too long, it can also cause damage beyond just the paint. Eventually, a dirty car will get rust spots, and this damage can drastically decrease the value of your car.
Protect your vehicle! Regular car washes are inexpensive and allow you to get a higher trade-in value when you upgrade to your next vehicle someday. Our automated system makes it easy to drive through any time you are in the area. The car wash is even open on Sundays for your convenience. You’ll be back on the road quickly, without having to spend your day off washing your car yourself by hand.
FAQs About Our Car Wash
Here are the most common questions we receive about our car wash here at Kernersville Auto Center:
How much does a car wash cost?
We have several options, with washes starting at $8. You can choose additives and special cleaning options based on what works best for your vehicle. Our monthly passes start at $30 and include unlimited washes.
Should I wax my car?
Wax provides another level of protection between your car and the road. It can also prevent tiny scratches from dirt particles. Not to mention… it looks great! We recommending upgrading to the hot wax option at least once or twice per year. It is much easier than waxing your car by hand.
Do I drive through your car wash?
Many people refer to this type of car wash as a “drive through” but you actually don’t drive at all. You put your car in neutral and it is automatically guided through the car wash at the right speed. You stay in the car the whole time, but don’t have to do anything. It can be a fun outing for your family. Kids love going through the car wash, and parents get a few minutes to relax.
Is your car wash safe for the environment?
We make every effort to provide an eco-friendly car wash experience. When you wash your car at home, that soap and dirt is washed down the storm drain. Here, we collect the water back into the system. It is filtered and recycled to use again and again, which is completely safe for your car and better for the environment.
Do car washes scratch your car?
Although we can’t speak for other car washes, we can say with certainty that our cash wash is safe! We gently remove dirt using ultra soft foam fingers. Additionally, our turbo foam bath is formulated to wash away any grime before it has a chance to cause scratches.
When should I wash my car?
If you are washing your car at home, it is best to do it in the early morning or evening, so the sun doesn’t dry the soap as you are washing. However, our automated car wash is covered. You can go through it whenever it is most convenient for you.
