5 Benefits of Waxing Your Car After a Car Wash

Lambency Detailing

Everyone knows that maintaining a car requires you to give it a regular car wash and wax to maintain its showroom appearance, as well as sending it for servicing to maintain its performance. But, most car owners only focus on the wash and service, leaving out the waxing process.

In fact, waxing your car after a car wash is a great way to keep your vehicle looking great, and it also helps to protect the paint from scratches. It can also be used on other surfaces that are difficult to clean, like plastics.

This article explores car waxing and the benefits of waxing your car after a car wash.

What is A Car Waxing Process?

A car waxing process involves applying a thin layer of car wax to the paintwork to protect it from our natural environment, such as pollution, UV rays, water spots, heat, dust, etc. It is designed to fill in the minor scratches and imperfections in the car’s finish.

How Does Waxing Benefit Your Car?

There are several benefits of waxing your car after a car wash. Among them are:

1. To protect against scratches

Automotive waxes are a blend of carnauba wax, beeswax, synthetic or natural oils, polymers, petroleum distillates, and resins. These ingredients enable a car wax to provide long-lasting, high-level protection and maximum shine for your car paint.

When the car wax is applied, it adds a layer of protection to the clear coat of your car’s paintwork. As you wash the car, the cleaning motion can grind small dirt particles into the body, leaving unnoticeable scratches. Waxing your vehicle after a car wash can help remove the dirt and scratches instead of letting them blend into the paint.

2. To protect against natural elements

You might wonder how waxing helps to protect your car’s paintwork from the natural elements. When you apply the car wax, you are putting a barrier between the elements and your car’s paintwork.

This helps to prevent any corrosive damage to the paint caused by bird droppings, UV rays, road salt, rain, tree sap, etc. Should there be any damage, it will further oxidise your car’s paint until it separates from the body. You can instead apply a coat of car wax regularly to protect the body from the natural elements.

3. To restore the new car gleam

When your car is exposed to various weather conditions, it can change the appearance of your paintwork. Sometimes, you might even see a white spot on certain parts of your car. Luckily, car wax in Singapore can help prevent this.

As you wash and wax regularly, you add a layer of protection to the paint. Over time, this can help to restore the new car’s gleam and, at the same time, increase its resale value. It will also be more enjoyable to drive around.

4. To make it easier to wash

Maintaining your car’s exterior is a cycle of washing, polishing, and waxing. If you skip any of the steps in the process, you can expect some challenges in the next cycle, especially if you skipped out on wax. This is because waxing can make it easier to wash the car.

When the car wax is applied, its hydrophobic property will cause water to bead up, causing the water and dirt to slide off easily. At the same time, this prevents dirt from sticking to the car’s surface. Thus, making it easier to wash your car.

5. To save your money

Did you know that having a paint job on your car can cost a lot of money? This is why car manufacturers often recommend getting your car waxed and polished regularly to maintain the car’s paintwork.

Instead of spending your money on the paint job, it is best to spare some time to have your car waxed at an auto-detailing workshop like Lambency Detailing. This will extend the lifespan of your car’s paintwork and reduce the maintenance cost.

How Often Should You Wax Your Car?

If you want to enjoy the benefits above, you might think you should wax your car after every wash. But, we can tell you that it generally depends on how often your vehicle is brought out for a drive.

For instance, if you park your car in a garage or an area sheltered from the elements, you should wax it twice a year to protect the car’s paintwork. However, if your car is constantly exposed to bad weather conditions, road salt, or spends most of your time outdoors, you should have your car waxed every one to three months.

This is to ensure consistent paint protection. At Lambency Detailing, our Basic Car Spa includes the use of SONAX Ceramic Ultra Slick Detailer, which is a form of a quick wax, so that your car will look vibrant and sleek afterwards.
