Car cleaning ‘makes vehicles last longer’

Drivers should not underestimate the importance of a bottle of car shampoo and some car waxes, as these and other items will help their motor carry on for longer.

That is the view of Korey Kennedy from the Canadian Automobile Association, who told Metro Canada that now is the perfect time to get the hose and some microfibre cloths out and give a vehicle the once over.

Winter may have passed but the remnants of it will still be on cars that have not been washed, meaning it is vital to get rid of them as soon as possible.

"At this time of year, a thorough exterior wash will get rid of the salt, grit and grime that contributes to premature corrosion. Regular cleaning and maintenance helps cars last longer and increases their resale value," Mr Kennedy told the news provider.

A similar point was recently made by Ricochet's Rapid Detail, which said that the cleanliness of a motor will have a direct impact on the selling price.
