Rust Prevention: The Importance of Washing Your Car

Surprisingly, regularly washing your car is one of the most important forms of vehicle maintenance that you can engage in. Sadly, many Bend, OR drivers aren't washing their cars often enough. At Team Kia of Bend, we want motorists to understand that leaving dirt, dust, and other elements on their vehicles does far more than diminish auto aesthetics.

Car Washing and Rust Prevention

Washing your car removes sediments and other abrasive materials that will gradually wear your car's paint down. It also neutralizes road salts that can additionally play a role in diminishing the finish on your vehicle, and in eliminating its protective coating. With too much neglect in this area, automobiles can quickly become subject to rust formation.

Establishing the perfect schedule for washing your car is easy. In general, your car should get washed about once every week. If you do a very limited amount of driving and keep your vehicle parked in an enclosed garage, you may be able to wash it less frequently. Conversely, drivers who live near construction sites or in heavily treed neighborhoods might want to wash their cars more often.
