Owning a vehicle is, without a doubt, convenient. However, cars are more than just a way for people to get from point A to point B. They are an essential part of everyday life and even reflect your personality and interests.
People buy sunshades to protect their vehicle’s dashboard, seats covers to protect the upholstery, and choose which type of fuel will help extend the life of their engine. But despite the obvious attachment and caring, people often neglect the benefits of a good ol’ hand car wash.
Why hand car wash is better than automatic car wash?
There are several reasons why you should opt to get a hand car wash done by experts as opposed to getting a car wash done by a machine. Here are some things you should consider:
Automatic car washes may cause damage to your car.
After using an automatic car wash, have you ever noticed damage to your car? It can be anything from swirls to scratches. Why this happens is because automatic car wash centres use equipment that is damaged from washing several cars a day but they do not repair or replace the equipment. A lot of the times, they use cheap products which can cause damage to the paint of your car. Moreover, many times there are dirty cars that come in the car wash and leave their dirt behind on the brush or cloth that will scrub your car next. This causes further damage to your car paint. If you care about how your car looks, we would recommend washing it yourself to avoid these minor dings that add up.
A hand car wash can help detect and prevent car problems through careful inspection.
Another reason that hand car washes can be so beneficial for your vehicle is that your whole car will be inspected while it is being cleaned. In automatic car washes, it is harder to detect any car issues. You aren’t notified of any problems that may arise in the future.
The beauty of a manual car washing, on the other hand, is that every single spot gets checked. A hand car wash, for example, can help detect potential problems and discover clear coat cracks, rust spots, and paint damage. Additionally, it can even help uncover small defects that might be fixable then and there, before things get out of hand and end up costing you hundreds of dollars.
Getting a hand car wash from your local car wash shop allows you to immerse yourself in your local community.
How much time do you spend on the computer and away from your community? Probably lots, right? Hand washing your vehicle gives you the opportunity to get out of the house and finally look forward to something. It allows you to meet neighbours and friends for a change without the use of technology. While it may appear a little old school, hand washing your vehicle is actually fun. It’s like a ritual in which the world stops and you get to see your vehicle being restored to its beautiful shiny and clean self, one step at a time.
Hand car washing provides better result.
Automatic car washes produce less desirable result as compared to hand washes. This is mainly because the lack of immediate and thorough contact with the vehicle in automatic car washes impairs the ability to clean efficiently. With the help of experts, you can be sure that your car is free from dust, mud and dirt. In addition, a visual inspection by a real person ensures that every part and component is cleaned thoroughly, giving your vehicle that ‘I just got washed’ sparkle.
A hand car wash is cheaper than a automated machine wash.
When it comes to automatic car washes, even $5 per week (the minimum) can end up costing you $240 a year. However, in hand car washes, since there is no need to pay to get your car washed, it results in potential savings. While you might argue that supplies, water and other cleaning agents might cost just as much, they actually don’t. One bucket of water is good enough to clean your vehicle thoroughly, and cleaning agents, wax and other shinning adhesives can easily last you months upon months, allowing you to clean your vehicle more often than usual. So, which option looks better now?
It gives you an opportunity to engage your kids in a fun activity.
One of the best things of hand washing your vehicle is it can be a fun activity which you can enjoy with your kids. Your children can get to learn more about how to maintain cars and how to effectively clean each vehicle part. On the other hand, automatic car washes are extremely boring. All you have to do is sit idle on the seats and wait for your vehicle to get washed. Therefore, it doesn’t provide you with an opportunity to teach your kids the importance of keeping a car clean.
It is convenient to get your car washed by experts.
As mentioned earlier, nowadays where daily commutes and busy schedules are commonplace, it can somewhat be difficult for people to hand wash their vehicle. As you can see, hand washing your vehicle has numerous benefits over automatic car wash. If you don’t have enough time, you can get your car hand washed by the experts, which is definitely a better option than an automatic car wash.
The Importance of a Clean Vehicle
Nowadays, people are so involved in their jobs and daily routines that they often forget to keep their vehicle ‘spic n span’. Nevertheless, this doesn’t reduce the importance of cleaning your vehicle. A clean car can make all the difference in how you feel about your vehicle. Knowing that your vehicle looks as good on the outside as it is on the inside can give you the feeling of accomplishment and pride.
Additionally, for optimal performance, it is essential to keep your vehicle clean both from the inside and out. Dust and air react with oxygen which causes rust on the exterior parts of your vehicle. Not to mention, if you forget to clean your vehicle from the inside, it may result in an awful bad smell. Therefore, keep in mind to wash your car on a regular basis to prevent rust and keep the interior clean to prevent any electronic issues and ensure your vehicle stays smell-free.
Although most people might argue that automatic car wash is a highly effective means of cleaning your vehicle, it isn’t. The only benefit automatic car washes provide is convenience! Otherwise, if time would not be a factor, hand washing vehicles tends to be better in every way.
