We strive to help our Arlington, VA customers keep their vehicles in optimal shape. The exterior should be washed routinely because it removes dirt, pollen, debris, and other contaminants from the exterior. When dirt builds up on the exterior, it can cause rust, scratches, and damage to the exterior paint, which will decrease its trade-in/resale value.

If you keep your car washed, it will improve your fuel efficiency. A coat of dirt on a vehicle will increase drag, which will lead to more fuel consumption. In fact, a clean car is 10 percent more fuel efficient than a car that is dirty.

To keep your vehicle's exterior in good condition, it should be washed at least every few months. However, if you have a long commute to work, or you live in an area with extreme heat, then you should wash it every week to prevent build-up on the windows.
