How Often Should You Wash Your Car?

At Ultra Clean Car Wash, we know that there are few feelings like having a perfectly cleaned washed vehicle, besides you buying a new car, of course.

You probably know how important it is to wash your car, but how often exactly “Should” you wash your vehicle? That’s what we are going to dive into today.

The answer isn’t as simple as “twice a month.” There are lots of variables that surround the question. Road Salt, Pollen, Rain, Tar, and other road grime are all common reasons you might want to wash your vehicle more frequently. Of course, depending on your situation and paint type, it can vary. However, a good rule of thumb is if something acidic is on your paint, it’s probably a good idea to get your vehicle washed. 

Your paint will last longer, and you’ll thank yourself in the future when you see other vehicles that have less diligent owners. 

Experts recommend that you wash your vehicle every two weeks, and that’s if you aren’t driving in an area with dirt roads or lots of salt. Unfortunately, Kansas City has lots of salt on its streets, which means you should probably double that frequency to keep your vehicle’s paint looking new as long as possible.

 Can you wash your vehicle too much?

If you are washing your vehicle weekly, you must be doing it right. Unfortunately, using low-quality cleaning products can eat away at your paint. That’s why Ultra Clean Car Wash uses only the best, environmentally friendly products to keep your paint in the best condition possible. 

But, washing your vehicle every week sounds excessive and expensive, and we agree that spending that much time or money on car washes throughout the year can add up. For example, if you wash your vehicle once a week for 12 months, you’ll probably spend over $1,000 on car washes. We feel that is entirely unreasonable, and we created a solution to this problem. We at Ultra Clean Car Wash offer unlimited monthly car wash passes, saving our customers an incredible amount of money. In fact, by using our Unlimited Monthly Car Wash pass, you could save hundreds of dollars every year.
