The Best Car Washing Schedule

How often should you wash your car? We here at Jaguar Grand Rapids in Grand Rapids, MI get this question all of the time. In truth, there is no right or wrong answer. It depends. However, there are good reasons to wash your car as often as weekly or twice per month. Here's why.

Protected Cars Need Less Washing

If you park your car in a covered garage daily, you might be able to get by with washing your car twice monthly. It's even better if you live in a mild climate, where extreme weather won't exacerbate the kind of abuse cars are typically exposed to. What abuse?

Daily driving and parking expose your car to dust, debris, pollen, airborne pollutants, bug guts, and bird droppings. If left unwashed, these things corrode your car's paint, finish, and undercarriage.

When It's Time For Weekly Washes

If you park your car in the open and commute daily, you may want to wash your car weekly. Weekly washing prevents damage to your car's paint, finish, and undercarriage, which can preserve your car's perceived/actual value and its ability to function at optimal levels.
