Driving A Dirty Car Is Unsafe
A dirty car is an unsafe car for several reasons. First, dirty windows can impair your visibility. Although windshield wipers can remove some of this grime, the remaining dirt can prevent you from seeing clearly. Furthermore, back and side windows can become equally dirty. For safe driving, you require good visibility out of all your windows.
Moreover, dusty windows will cause your windows to fog up more readily. Similar to cloud formation, water vapor in the air condenses upon particles like dust. The more dust particles on your window, the more condensation you’ll experience.
Finally, dust on your windshield can increase glare. The tiny dust particles that accumulate on your windows scatter light from the sun and oncoming headlights. This increase in scattered light can be too much for your eye to manage causing glare.
Shouldn’t You Think About Protecting Your Investment?
Generally, experts recommend washing your car every 2 weeks to protect its finish. However, you may need to wash it more often due to your driving conditions and weather. For example, wintertime is especially harsh on cars as de-icing solutions can cause corrosion if left on your exterior.
Additionally, bird droppings, pollen, tree sap, and dust can severely damage your paint if left on your car. Some of these substances can begin to destroy your finish in as little as 48 hours. Moreover, some car owners mistakenly believe that waiting for the next rainstorm will wash off the dirt. However, rainwater contains contaminants that can leave water spots on your car.
Thus, wintertime driving, driving on unpaved roads, or parking under trees will require more frequent washes. While parking your car in the garage will limit your exposure to dirt requiring less washing.
A Dirty Car Can Impact Your Health
Undoubtedly, few car owners consider the health implications of driving a vehicle with a dirty interior. Yet, cars may potentially contain more dangerous bacteria than homes. One study found more bacteria living on a car’s dashboard than on a toilet seat.
Now that you’re grossed out, do something about it. Bring your vehicle down to Xpress Lube for full car detailing. Our service will not only spotlessly clean your exterior, but also deep clean your interior. Your car will smell fresh and better yet, we’ll remove most of those nasty germs.
FAQs About Our Express Lube Car Wash
We’ve put together some of those questions our customers often ask us about our car wash. If you have any others, don’t hesitate to call us at 336-993-7697.
Won’t I Use Less Water By Washing My Car At Home?
Unfortunately, many car owners believe home washing is better for the environment. However, washing your car at home uses more water, pollutes waterways, and takes more time. Fortunately, visiting our Xpress Lube car wash gets your car sparkling clean in a jiffy, and protects the environment.
First, we use filtered, recycled water to clean your car. While home washing uses an average of 116 gallons of water, we use only 70. Moreover, we recycle a higher percentage of water than the competition.
Furthermore, when you home wash, the dirty water flows into the storm drain then out to our waterways. Thus, washing your car at home pollutes and endangers wildlife. Our commercial car wash captures the dirty water, filtering out contaminants.
Finally, a trip through our express lube car wash is quick. While a home washing can take up to 1 hour, our car wash takes only about 10 minutes.
How Often Should I Wax My Car?
Typically, automakers add a clear coat to the exterior of a car to protect the paint. This clear coat is also what gives a car its shine. Unfortunately, exposure to UV rays, de-icing solution, and precipitation can destroy this layer of protection.
Once this coat wears away, the underlying paint can discolor, fade, and rust. Applying a coat of wax gives your car protection from the elements. Plus, waxing helps keep your car’s glossy shine.
Similar to washing your car, the frequency of waxing your car is dependent on your driving conditions and local weather. Vehicles exposed to direct sunlight and other harsh elements will require waxing more often. At the minimum, you should wax your car at least twice a year.
Moreover, we make it easy to protect your investment. At Xpress Lube, we use premium brands such as Armor-All®, Rain•X®, and Black Magic®. Just ask us to include a hot wax application at your next visit.
