A clean car is good for the environment

Our cars are an extension of our personalities. They reflect our lifestyles and the perception we have of ourselves. They inspire feelings and quite often ignite our passion.

Our cars can send us cowering into shame and embarrassment if they're coated in dirt? Or the interior is gorging with garbage? How easily that all changes with a simple professional car wash/ detailing Just like that, a clean car can change your day. It can change how you feel about yourself, even transform a bad mood into a fantastic one.

But more importantly, keeping your car clean has many significant financial and environmental benefits, especially when performed by a professional detailer


Let's start with the financial rewards. Every day our cars are subjected to sun, salt from the sea, grease and grime from the road, acid rain, smog, tree sap, dead bugs, and worst of all, the ever-acidic compound of bird poop bombs. We've all been riddled and splattered at one time or another.

All of these menaces eat away at a car's metal and chrome. They dull the paint. They corrode and cause rust under the carriage, in the wheel wells, even under the hood. They destroy your pride and joy, day after day. Over time they will contribute to the decay of your car's exterior, ultimately diminishing its resale value.

Did you know that nearly $24 billion a year is spent battling car corrosion damage? This cost is absorbed by you, the consumer, in three ways: funding automakers efforts to research corrosion-resistant paints and coatings, fixing damage to your car, and overall depreciation of cars due to corrosion.

That's not the only scary fact. The Environmental Protection Agency reports that acid rain particularly in urban and industrial areas, damages car paint when the moisture evaporates, leaving the acid — which can form a blemish that looks like a splattered raindrop. This eats through a car's finish, permanently etching it.


There are quite a few benefits for using a reputable detailer vs. washing your car at home:

  • Protecting your investment: By professionally washing your car at least once or twice a month, you can maintain one of your biggest investments.

  • Saves time: Time is one of our most valued commodities. To wash a car yourself, first you need to buy the soap and washcloths. Then there's the clean up of your yard or driveway. Lugging everything in and out of your garage or house is exhausting compared to a calling a reputable detailer.

  • Water conservation: A professional detailer can use about half the amount of water it takes to do it yourself.

  • Convenience: Mobile car wash/detailing has been around for a long time but in the past decade, it is now being recognized as a necessity rather than a luxury. The detailers will come to you to wash your vehicle, no need to travel to a car wash.

For all these reasons, you can't beat a professional detailer

Interestingly, a recent survey shows that more than 50 percent of car owners wash their cars less than once a month — and 16 percent never wash their cars. This translates into 73 million grimy automobiles on the roads. Even worse: 27 percent say their car smells, or used to, because of garbage.

So treat your car the way you want it to treat you. Add car washing/detailing to your monthly list of chores; go to the bank, pick up the dry cleaning, visit the grocery store, and get your car washed. With thousands of professional detailers nationwide, there's just no excuse not to have it done at least once every two or three weeks. You'll protect your investment, save time, and minimize environmental impact.
