The Importance of Washing Your Car

How often do you wash your car? Keeping your car clean is an afterthought for a lot of people, but at Island Honda, we think it's really important! Beyond keeping your car looking new and presentable, it can actually help preserve the value of your car.

Depending on the season, you might not need to wash your car for a couple of months – or you might need to wash it once a week. If it rains or snows a lot, washing your car won't do you much good, because the rain will make spots on your car. However, if you hit a lot of bugs with your car, you should wash it every week. Leaving bugs on your car can damage the paint and devalue your car.

You may also want to wash your car more frequently if you have a long commute. Longer drives tend to attract more dirt.
