So you’re thinking about cleaning your car in Alaska— First of all, well done! It’s important for vehicle owners to get their cars on a proper maintenance schedule to keep them running and looking their best.

When it comes to cleaning your car, you have primarily two options: Car detailing and car washing. Each of these has their own set of benefits and as your local go-to Alaskan car wash, we’re listing those for you below!

Car Washing

Car washing (AKA visiting your favorite Sudzy Salmon location in Eagle River, Palmer, and soon-to-be Wasilla!) involves cleaning the exterior of the vehicle to remove dirt, grime, debris and other harmful pollutants that can damage the paint. Your trip to Sudzy Salmon also might involve using the vacuums to clean the interior of your car from the seats to the floors.

Many car owners in Alaska can admit to washing their cars more often than they have them detailed. And we understand— washing your car takes significantly less time, especially if you visit an efficient hybrid tunnel wash like ours!

Washing your vehicle in Alaska will help to protect it against weather elements as well as protect the interior from showing wear quickly. If you take care of your vehicle by visiting a car wash often, you will find it needs much less detailing.

Car Detailing

Car detailing involves much more time and likely, more money, than a car wash and works to preserve your vehicle’s interior condition as close to “new” as possible.

You can think of detailing as an intricate cleaning or restoration to help preserve the life of the vehicle. Detailing might include using special tools like brushes, swabs, and microfiber towels to clean everything from car vents to cup holders. Regular detailing allows vehicles to retain much of their value which can be quite easy to lose if your vehicle sees a lot of wear.

We highly recommend sticking to a regular car care routine to keep your Alaskan vehicle looking great, especially as we head into the colder months! Make a reminder now to visit the Sudzy Salmon nearest to you this week!

See you at the wash!
