The weather is just starting to warm up, so you might find yourself tempted just to break out the hose and give your car a quick wash in your driveway. You might even think a little rain could do the work for you!
While those may seem like good ideas, the truth is— nothing really cleans like a professional car wash!
Our Sudzy Salmon Car Wash in both Eagle River and Palmer uses equipment that will clean your vehicle both efficiently and thoroughly, meaning your car stays protected from the elements, grime, and bacteria that can harm your vehicle’s exterior.
Washing your vehicle at home, for instance, typically involves a sponge that can be one of the dirtiest items to use when cleaning. After all, a sponge can be 2,000 times dirtier than a toilet when not cleaned and sanitized properly, according to Time Magazine. This means every time you wash your car with a sponge, you’re exposing your vehicle to a wild amount of germs, bacteria, and dirty water.
And that’s just the sponge! A DIY home car wash probably involves a garden hose, which does not produce enough water pressure to clean thoroughly and avoid damaging the car’s finish, according to a study by the University of Texas.
A professional car wash is not only the cleaner option, but the safer option. Many Alaskans don’t realize that hand washing their car at home can have a negative impact on the car’s paint, producing scratches that cut as deep as 1/10 of the total thickness of the car’s paint.
We know the spring and summer months will have us all ready to get outside, but before you grab the bucket and soap, just keep in mind that a spin through the Sudzy Salmon Car Wash will save you time, money, and headaches down the road!
See you at the wash!
