Proper washing of any vehicle, whether it be a car, truck, boat, or camper trailer is an essential maintenance process to ensure a lasting finish and for coated vehicles, a well protected finish. Specifically focusing on automotive maintenance, whether your vehicle is coated or not, we have the same wash recommendations and intervals. Having a coated vehicle does NOT mean you never need to wash again, in fact, proper maintenance is vital to ensure your coating is performing optimally. However, our wash recommendations and procedures do not change based on if the vehicle is coated or not, the maintenance process will still remain the same -- although with a coated vehicle this process will be significantly faster and easier due to the chemical resistance of the coating that reduce the need for more aggressive chemicals and wash processes.
So, how often should you wash your car? We typically recommend at least once every two weeks for daily driven vehicles. This will vary depending on the driving environment, parking situation during the day, and storage situation at night.
Regular washing ensures the pores of your paint system and or coating system are cleansed and free of major contamination which prevents etching and other surface defects and damage that can occur when the contaminants are left on the surface for a prolonged amount of time.
For your non-daily driven vehicles that are garage kept, you can safely go one to two months without a wash. However, the dust and air pollutants that are inevitable will eventually build up on the surface and need to be properly removed via a wash process.
