Q: How do I know when my car needs a wax?

A: There are a couple of easy tests you can perform to know whether or not it’s time to wax your vehicle. First there’s the water beading test. During your wash, look at how the water behaves on the surface. If it beads up nicely, then your last wax job is still hanging in there. If the water doesn’t bead at all and forms large “sheets” on the surface, it’s time for a wax. Another quick test is performed after your car is washed and dried thoroughly. Fold a 100% cotton terrycloth towel until it’s hand-sized and thick. Apply firm pressure to the car’s surface and twist the cloth back and forth in a clockwise and counter clockwise direction. If you hear a squealing noise, then you’re due for a wax job.

Q: How often should I wax my car?

A: Everyone has their own opinion on when you should wax your vehicle. Wax manufacturers recommend that you apply a new coat every 45 days or so. Some newer synthetic waxes claim to provide protection for up to one year. If you want a showroom look all the time and would like your paint to last the lifespan of your vehicle, you may want to get a wax every one or two months. Cars parked in a garage can go longer without a wax than those exposed to the outdoor elements. Check out our YouTube tutorial above on how to wax your car.

Q: What is a clay bar?

A: Clay bars are used to remove Paint Contamination, Overspray and Industrial Fallout, a clay bar helps to clean contamination/dirt from within the clear coat that cannot be removed through weekly washing such as bugs, tar, sap, etc. Clay baring is usually done on a cool, clean, wet surface within a square 3 foot diameter.

Q: How often should I wash my car?

A: Once a week to once a month depending on the time of year. When you drive in the winter where it snows, you’re going to get lots of salt and sand on the car and that will eat away at your paint job. Just look at what the salt dose to the street you can only imagine what it is doing to your paint! Washing your car once a week during this time of the year is a must. In the springtime, there’s lots of pollen and other stuff floating around in the air. Once a week then is a minimum, too. At other times, you can probably get away with waiting a little longer; I would recommend no less than once a month.
