Why It's so Important to Keep Your Car Clean

Our team at Redding Kia has a goal to help Redding, CA drivers get the most out of their vehicles. Keeping your vehicle washed and waxed on a regular basis will protect its exterior coat and other components from rust and damage. Here are some helpful guidelines that let you know how often you should give your car a wash.

A good car wash once a week may be appropriate if you park under a tree that exposes the paint to sap. Bird droppings can damage your car's paint, so frequent bird droppings and bug splatter need to be washed off about once a week. Living in an area that gets frequent rain can make your vehicle susceptible to rust, so a weekly washing may be a good idea if you live in a rainy area.

You can probably wash your car about once or twice each month if you live in an area that has mild weather and your car is in a garage most of the time. If you live near the beach or coast, then salt in the air can cause rust, so try to wash your vehicle about once a month to protect it from damage.
