WAXING

Preserving Your Car's Paint Finish

Regular waxing will keep a car looking new for many years.

DOES YOUR VEHICLE’S LOOK DULL?
The sun is the NUMBER ONE environmental enemy in attacking the shine of your vehicle’s paint. The ultraviolet rays produce heat that can reduce the “DURABILITY” of the clear coat finish. Wax and polish films provide a reflective “SHINE BARRIER” between your vehicle’s paint finish and the elements.

SOME FACTS:

THE SUN
Think your skin is important to protect? Cars have skin too! Your car's paint finish breathes and even has pores! In the hot sun the paint's pores expand and can absorb more dirt and moisture.

BIRD DROPPINGS
Bird droppings are highly acidic and can erode paint and clear coat paint finishes.

SAP FROM TREES
A lot of trees can drop small mist-like droplets on your car's paint -- the kind of sap that you can't see unless you look very closely. In the hot sun this stealthy foe of tree sap will bake into the pores of the paint surface and can leave stains.

AIRBORNE CONTAMINANTS
There are airborne particles in our air that can damage our cars' paint surfaces. By-products from construction, small manufacturing operations and even your own home chimney can contribute floating elements into the air that threaten your car's paint finish.
