Washing your car might seem like a luxury, but it’s actually an important part of keeping your car’s exterior looking great and staying rust free.

Exterior elements are tough on your car’s exterior, working over time to deteriorate layers of protective coatings and paint and exposing your car’s steel body panels and opening the door for harmful oxidation (rust).

The best defense against rust is prevention. Regular car washes that include underbody washes and protective sealants help maintain the integrity of your car’s protective layers of paint and sealants.
