You know how you feel in a clean house. But what about a car wash? Aside from car washing, very little attention is often paid to the health benefits of car detailing. Plus, keeping your car in pristine condition means you’re safer on the road and better able to handle routine maintenance.
1. Longer Vehicle Life
By waxing the car, you keep the paintwork in good condition. The natural deposits of dirt and salt you get from driving can damage your car’s bodywork over time. The benefits of cleanliness also apply to the engine, where regular wiping prevents damage from the accumulation of dirt.
2. Better Mental Health
You spend a lot of time in the car. When this environment is clean, you feel more focused and organized. Most people are happier when they keep their homes clean; the same goes for the car where you meditate or meditate on your days to and from work.
3. Safe Driving
Visibility is key to preventing accidents. What is harming your visibility? Dirty windows and mirrors. If you keep them clean, you’ll see what’s going on around you. In addition, clean headlights lead to maximum brightness, which is a must for driving at night or in bad weather.
4. Better Physical Health
Think about the dirt that has probably accumulated in your car. Even if you’re a neat person, hard surfaces can harbor bacteria. Not to mention the dust and residue on the chairs and floor. This can lead to poor air quality, worsening allergy sufferers or respiratory problems.
5. Improved Fuel Economy
A layer of grime actually makes your engine work harder. This is because it increases the drag of the car. So your fuel consumption will drop if you don’t regularly wash the exterior of your car. Reduced fuel consumption means a dirty car is money out of your pocket.
6. Personal Pride
Your car may or may not be a status symbol, but it is an accessory that you are always associated with. You want your car to reflect the same pride you take in your personal appearance. After all, you probably spent some time thinking about the make, model and color of your car before you bought it – why not keep it cool?
7. Sparkling Joy
You probably know this phrase associated with the organizer Maria Kondo. You can use the KonMari method to declutter your car, but instead of having fun, check out this tool. Ask yourself, of all the things you have in your car, “is this necessary?”Losing excess weight will not only make you feel better, but it will also take less weight off the engine of your car.
