Everyone knows that you should wash your car to keep it looking good and keep rust from forming. But waxing is a step many car owners often overlook. It can be seen as a cumbersome, labor-intensive option relegated to enthusiasts.
But even if you’re still driving your humble economy car, waxing goes a long way towards protecting your vehicle. At Economy Express Wash, our Platinum option adds Hot Wax that is automatically applied to your car.
Understanding Your Car’s Paint
Your car’s paint isn’t just sprayed straight onto the body. It’s a complex system with multiple layers. Though these layers can vary depending on your make/model and color, they are generally structured like this from bottom to top.
That top layer of clear coat is what suffers most environmental damage, typically in the form of nicks and scratches. Wax not only fills those gaps, but adheres to the top of the clear coat, insulating it against further damage.
Without wax, that clear coat will eventually wear down completely, exposing the vulnerable paint and primer underneath. This is what causes rust.
Hot Wax vs. Hand Wax
Traditional car waxing is applied by hand. A small amount is applied to a freshly washed car, then spread evenly over each panel. This layer is then buffed by hand, massaging it into those scratches and nicks and removing the visible top layer. This is a very labor-intensive and/or expensive process.
Our hot wax is instead applied by the same machine that washes your car. While not as comprehensive or as deep-reaching as hand wax, hot wax still offers excellent protection and all the aesthetic benefits of a traditional wax. Most importantly, it does so at a fraction of the cost and with significantly less labor.
Our unlimited platinum plan lets you keep hot wax on your car all year-long for only $39 per month! Come by Economy Express Wash today to start protecting your car.
