How Often Does a Car Really Need to be Waxed?

If you're a casual motorist, then you might not have ever bothered trying to use car wax before. It might not even seem all that necessary. You might be surprised to learn, however, that car wax can do much more than keep a car looking new longer.

Car wax actually helps to protect your car's finish from damage. It's not just cosmetic. Considering the weather in Burlingame, you might have seen how fast rain can age a vehicle. Wax acts as a physical barrier that makes your car's body hydrophobic, which means water will just bead right off it.

Ultraviolet light from the sun isn't your car's friend either, but fortunately wax can act like a barrier against this as well. You might think that this means you should wax your car all the time, but even cars that sit on the lot at Putnam Mazda only get treated two or three times a year. Make sure to use car wax sparingly and your vehicle's finish will last longer than you could have ever imagined.
