The Benefits of Waxing your Vehicle

Having your car waxed might seem like an unnecessary luxury to some, but regular waxing has many benefits. Regular car wash and waxing will help keep your vehicle looking brand new and preserve the value. Waxing your car not only makes it look nicer, but also protects the paint.

Car Waxing is an important part of car maintenance as it protects your paint, makes your vehicle easier to clean, stays cleaner longer, and provides a lasting shine that is sure to turn heads when you are cruising down the street. While cleaning your vehicle can help to correct contaminations to an extent, wax can help to prevent the contaminations in the first place.

Adding wax provides an additional protective layer that defends your paint and clear coat against the elements. Wax can be effective in protecting your paint by adding an additional layer that things such as rocks, grime and micro particles have to go through in order to damage the paint. Wax also makes the vehicle easier to clean.

Paint protects against scratches by providing extra layer when washing your vehicle. Microparticles can bond with the clear coat of your vehicle when they are not removed. Wax provides an extra layer that is easy to remove through the use of washing, however, clear coat is not the same story. For this reason, it makes sense to apply wax. Instead of those particles bonding with the clear coat layer of your vehicle, they cling to the wax which is removable. This prevents swirls and scratches in the paint of your vehicle, which help to retain and, in some cases, increase the value of your vehicle. By preventing these paint swirls and scratches, you are extending the life of your paint.

Wax also provides protection against dirt, water, and sun exposure. Wax can be highly effective with helping dirt to fall off your car instead of clinging to it, which means that your car is easier to clean, and will stay clean for a longer duration. Water droplets can be an annoying occurrence especially when they are on your vehicle’s windows. They can even distract you in certain situations and block your vision which poses a safety risk. UV protection is also a major benefit of waxing, it helps to prevent the fading of your paint.
