Well, coming from auto experts who love to see a clean car, we would say always but not everybody has the time for that!
BEST TIME OF DAY & WEATHER CONDITIONS TO WASH YOUR CAR
It’s best to clean your car when the sun is low in the sky - so wash early or late in the day. Or go to the car wash on a day that is cloudy! Fewer people wash their cars when the sun hides, which can mean you’re in and out super fast.
Why: avoiding direct sunlight is useful as hot weather and strong sun can ruin your vehicle’s paint job and accelerate damage from dirt, oil and other built-up substances.
BEST DAY OF THE WEEK TO WASH YOUR CAR
Beat the crowds and get your car washed on slower days. Tuesdays through Thursdays tend to be a better time to visit a car wash, since people usually do errands on and around the weekends. Plan to visit Car Wash King on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday!
AFTER WINTER WEATHER
Apart from the dirt and sludge that can damage the exterior if not immediately washed off, the chemical magnesium chloride used to minimize Indiana’s icy conditions is a corrosive substance that eats away at your car’s metal, plastic, paint and rubber components. It’s critical to wash your car immediately after driving on roads treated with the chemical.
Magnesium chloride also negatively affects the environment. Car Wash King specializes in protecting your car from these harmful chemicals during the Indiana winter months and helping to limit your negative impact on the environment.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET MY CAR WASHED?
It is recommended you wash your car once a week to prevent damages to your paint and finish. Signing up for a membership at a car wash is an affordable option to get unlimited monthly car washes. Car Wash King offers unlimited memberships at a low monthly price for you to wash your car as often as you want and on any day of the week you choose. Use your Car Wash King membership more than one time a month and you save money!
You can feel good about getting your car washed at Car Wash King, because we use less water than you would when washing at home.
