Keeping a clean car may seem obvious to some people. However, many people do not know just how important it really is to keep your vehicle clean. Here are 5 reasons why you should keep your car clean.

1. It preserves your paint. 

Many people think that washing and waxing a car is a luxury and not necessary. In reality, maintaining your car’s exterior is extremely important in preserving it. Most cars naturally depreciate, but you can extend the life of a car and in turn preserve its value longer if you keep it clean. Dirt, grime, and salt are natural enemies to your car’s paint. If exposed for too long, they will eat away at it, not only damage the paint but the metal too.

2. It can prevent costly repairs

As I alluded to in the last point, car filth can wreak havoc on your car’s paint and body. Some of this damage is irreversible and will require complete replacement. Those repairs cost a lot of money, in general, and hurt the overall value of the car.

3. Clean cars are safer

According to statistics, you are likely to get in a car accident approximately once every 18 years. You should do anything you can to reduce those odds, including keeping your car clean. People get in accidents every year because of dirty windows reducing visibility. Cars naturally have several blind spots and the smallest amount of dirt can reduce visibility tenfold.

4. Cleaning the interior is healthy

Many people allow the interiors of their cars to get far too dirty. If they lived in the same conditions in their home, people might see why it is important to clean the interior. Cleaning the interior of a vehicle eliminates harmful bacteria that can accumulate on steering wheels, upholstery and dashboards.

5. A clean vehicle makes you proud

This might be the most important reason to keep a clean car. It has been scientifically proven that having a clean car makes you happy. How a person keeps their car says a lot about them. Take pride in your vehicle and keep it clean.
