This post is brought to you in partnership with WaterSavers.
Some days I wish my husband would clean the house as much as he cleans our vehicles. He is constantly cleaning not only the inside but the outside as well, which living in the northeast it is especially important to keep the outside clean. We have snowy winters and the salt can do a number on the vehicle and can lead to corrosion. By not taking the simple step and washing the salt off, it can lead to damage and a decrease in value when it’s time to sell or trade it in.
Every so often we will stop by our local professional car wash to get ride of the salt, dirt and grime, to help protect the vehicles paint and clean the undercarriage. By using WaterSavers eco-friendly carwashes, you can use less water and help to prevent water pollution as it is treated before being put back into the environment.
3 Reasons to Clean Your Car This Spring:
1. Your car is a reflection of who you are
There’s no question your car is a reflection on you. Whether it’s all about horsepower, efficient gas mileage or four-wheel drive, your vehicle represents who you are, where you’ve been and where you intend to go. The design, form and function are extensions of your style and personality. So, if you haven’t given it a wash in a while, what does that say about you? You wouldn’t walk out the door without a shower, a shave and a little spruce up. (Would you?) So why shouldn’t you show that same respect for your car?
From dirt and dust to grit and grime, give that car its reflective shine at a WaterSavers car wash. WaterSavers professional car washes use an average of 40 gallons of fresh water or less per car, according to the International Carwash Association. As a frame of reference, that 10 minute shower you took used 25 gallons of fresh water. WaterSavers washes also recycle and filter the water to prevent harmful chemicals from entering groundwater supplies that feed rivers and streams.

2. Regular car washes protect your paint job
That beautiful factory paint job will dull and begin to chip away if you don’t maintain it. Regularly washing your car and waxing it will help keep your car looking as good as it did when you pulled out of the dealer lot.
3. Professional car washes help maintain the value of the vehicle
You might be more inclined to spend money on engine issues than the car’s exterior, but stains and rusting can drastically decrease the value of the vehicle over time. Especially after a long winter, exposure to the elements can cause damage. Professional car washes thoroughly clean the undercarriage of your vehicle, where there may be a buildup of road salt that could cause corrosion to the car’s exhaust and muffler system.
