You can do a search on the internet about anything nowadays. So, I did a search on the benefits of a clean car. There were a lot of reasons, but the reoccurring reasons were as follows:

 

  1. Longer Vehicle Life

  2. Safer Driving

  3. Pride/Reflection

  4. Improving Value

  5. Health

 

Longer Vehicle Life

Our cars are exposed to all types of weather, which some can be very damaging. By cleaning and waxing your car, you are keeping your car’s paint in good shape. The deposits of dirt and salt that you gather from driving will corrode the body of your vehicle over time. The benefits of cleanliness also extend to the engine, believe it or not, a regular wipe-down can prevent damage from the buildup of debris which leads to damage.

 

Safer Driving

We all know that visibility is very important to accident prevention. Dirty windows and rear-view mirrors can affect your visibility. Cars naturally have several blind spots and the smallest amount of dirt can reduce visibility tenfold.

 Keeping your windows and mirrors clean, can help you better evaluate what’s going on around you. Let’s not forget, clean headlights can lead to maximum road illumination, a must for driving at night or in inclement weather. By having your car washed on a regular basis, you’ll drive with confidence knowing your windshield, rear window, side mirrors, and tires are clean and safe for your next trip, whether short or long.

 

Pride/Reflection

Your car may or may not be a status symbol, but it is an accessory with which you are regularly associated. You want your car to reflect the same pride you feel with your personal appearance. After all, you probably spent quite a bit of time thinking about the make, model, and color of the vehicle before you bought it — why not keep it looking its best?

 

This next reason 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.

 

While a clean car may not be part of your official job description, maintaining a clean vehicle may help you land a job. For positions that require you to spend time on the road, in your own vehicle, the need for a clean car is obvious. However, a potential employer may sneak a peek at your car when you arrive for the interview. Your car is part of your first impression. Make sure it’s a good one.

Improving Value

Are you planning on selling your vehicle or even trading it in? Even if you’re going to do this months or years in the future, it’s important to do what you can to keep your car looking great now. Regular car washes are a big part of this, as they can help prevent rust, scratches, dull paint, and other issues that take away from the look of your car.

According to Kelly Blue Book, going from good condition to excellent condition can increase your car’s value by 10 to 15 percent.

Health

This part is not to create a scare or ride the coattails from the Covid-19 pandemic. Most of the articles I found regarding this issue, were written before the pandemic.

Beyond standard psychological benefits, a cleaner vehicle will leave you healthier. Numerous studies have measured air quality and bacteria growth in our vehicles, and they’re surprisingly dirty places. Bacteria growth occurs all over your vehicle, and in particularly messy cars, bacteria growth can even occur within the air vents. Plus, pet dander, dust, pollen, and other allergens tend to collect in carpeting and can result in allergies and other breathing ailments for drivers.
