Yes, please make sure your roof is properly latched.

This is a critical time to protect your vehicle’s finish. Pollutants such as sulfuric and nitric acids from automobile, truck, and factory exhaust become trapped in the raindrops or snow flakes that settle on your car.  The sun will evaporate the water and leave behind concentrated acid that can damage your car’s finish.  Calcium Chloride that is sprayed on roads to melt ice on the winter creates a toxic coating of road film on your car that can dull its finish and lead to future rust of the frame.

Q: The person I bought my car from said I never have to wax my car?

This is a common misconception. Newer cars have a type of finish called clear coat. Clear coat is susceptible to the effects of rain, snow, salt, bird droppings, and other environmental pollutants like any other finish. Therefore, the clear coat finishes need to be cared for. Clean Getaway Car Wash uses clear coat safe waxes and polishes both in our AUTOMATIC WASH BAYS and SELF SERVE BAYS. The waxes are designed to work with your vehicle’s finish to help preserve its life and keep it looking new for many years to come.

A: The wax itself won’t streak the outside of your windows. However, grease and oil can get trapped underneath your wipers, which can cause the rainbow like streaks you may see on your window.  Frequent and regular car washing will eliminate these problems.

As soon as possible, especially if the car is new. Insect residue and bird droppings form acids that immediately start to eat away a car’s finish.

As we all know, water freezes at 0°C. Anytime the temperature falls below this you run the risk of things freezing up. But, there are a few simple things you can do to help prevent freezing when it’s cold:

  • Park in a garage whenever possible
  • Leave your car running or drive for several minutes after going through the car wash.
  • Spray lock de-icer in your locks after you exit the wash.
  • Put your key in every lock and turn it back and forth a number of times. This helps to displace any water that might be present.
  • Take the time to dry off your door jambs.
