How Long Will My Car Wax Last?

How long does a wax last?

Waxing your car is essential to maintaining a professional look, but how often should you be investing in a good wax? There is no clear-cut answer to this question, but experts say on average, that a good wax should last 2-3 months. Nonetheless, there are factors that play into it wear and tear of top-tier car wax. Here are a few factors that play into a wax’s life span!

 

Surface prep:

The way a car’s surface is prepared before the placement of the wax can have a big impact on its longevity. Without proper cleaning, items such as leftover wax, dirt, debris, bugs, and any other environmental factor can play a role in how long the new wax will last. If the wax does not properly “stick” or sink into the shell of the vehicle due to interference, the likelihood of the wax living out its full lifespan is less likely.

How Long Will My Car Wax Last? Surface Prep

How the wax is applied:

The way the wax is applied to the car will make a big difference in how long it lasts. Wax lasts the longest when it is applied in thin coats using a random motion orbiter to apply the layers with even pressure. If you are unsure if you are capable of handling this process, leave it to the professionals! At Rocket Carwash, we have a full team ready to assist you in your next wax!

Environmental factors:

Sometimes how long the durability of your wax has nothing to do with you. Factors such as pollutants, salt, ice, where you park your car, and the weather can have an impact on the length of time before you need a new wax. You know what they say, “you cannot control the weather”, well sometimes you cannot control how long your wax will last.

Washing frequency:

Unfortunately, waxing your car and washing your car work inversely from each other. The more you wash your car, the less time the wax will last. As time goes on, the wax will begin to fade. Those who wash their car frequently should invest in getting their car waxed more often and be careful to not “over do it.”

How Often Should You Wash Your Car?

Have you ever wondered just how often you should be washing your car? What magic length of time should go by before getting your next carwash?
For most of us, we think that our next carwash should happen after an event like driving through mud or when salt builds up over winter. What most people do not realize is that just like changing your oil or getting your tires adjusted, washing your car is essential to the everyday maintenance of your vehicle.

Washing Your Car

Overall, when answering the question, “How often should you wash your car?” experts say that you should wash your car roughly on a biweekly basis. But of course, this is dependent on many different factors such as where you live, what pollutants are in your environment, and what you put your car through on a daily. If you are riding muddy roads to work every day or park your car outside of a garage then you may need to wash your car more often.

Why it is important to wash your car:

Most people underestimate the importance of washing their car. Some believe that it is just a cosmetic preference, but when in reality it can do some damage.

Leaving debris (such as dirt, bird droppings, salt, and grime) on your car can damage the finish and paint on the car. If untreated over time, this could lead to rust, pitting, and a huge decrease in monetary value. No matter, if you are trading in a new car or an old car, trade-in value, will plummet without the proper care of your car.

Additional Care Maintenance:

When it comes to caring for your car, it will always benefit you to go the extra mile. Some other things you can do to protect the longevity of your vehicle include waxing, washing your undercarriage, cleaning your wheels, and detailing the inside of your car.

Rocket Carwash Opens at 168th & Maple, Offering Exterior Wash and Omaha’s First Express Interior Clean Option

OMAHA; March 8, 2022 – Rocket Carwash has opened its first location offering both express exterior and express interior cleaning options at 168th and Maple Streets in Omaha. Sitting high above the intersection with its signature red, blue and black façade, and the exterior cleaning tunnel is visible through a dramatic, all-glass, north-facing exterior wall. This carwash location features the Rocket clean experience for vehicle exteriors that local drivers know and love and adds to it an express interior cleaning service that is housed in a second tunnel parallel to the primary carwash.

The new express interior clean option, the first of its kind in Omaha, utilizes best-in-industry technology to move vehicles smoothly through the tunnel on a horizontal belt. This meticulous, white-glove interior service allows customers to turn the keys over to attendants, who vacuum, spray and clean floor mats, consoles, cupholders, windows, dashboards and doorjambs while the belt moves from entrance to exit. Attendants also utilize a high-powered Tornador air pressure cleaner to remove particles from tough to reach cracks and crevices. Vehicles also receive a thorough exterior towel-dry, ensuring any drip spots are removed, plus a five-point Rocket Quality Check before the job is complete. The entire process takes about ten minutes, during which customers can relax and observe the process from the expansive nearby viewing area or enjoy a modern, light-filled guest room and coffee bar. Express interior clean memberships can be added to customers’ existing Rocket Wash-level membership, one of the many exterior cleaning membership options with price points that begin at just $19.99 a month.

“We are thrilled to bring this exceptional express interior clean experience to the Omaha community,” said Bryan Marshall president of Rocket Carwash. “We welcome new and existing customers to visit us on West Maple, seven days a week to experience an out of this world clean.”

Now with five wash locations in greater Omaha, Rocket Carwash is committed to supporting the communities where it operates. Its signature community relations effort is the Rocket Carwash community fundraising program, an easy-to-use, online platform for non-profits, athletic organizations, youth groups and others to sell carwashes to their supporters and fans, while receiving 60% of the profits.

Based in Omaha, Rocket Carwash operates carwashes in the Midwest, Texas and Northeast, and is nearing construction on multiple locations in Minneapolis, Pennsylvania, Southern California, Kansas, Missouri and South Dakota. Longer-term the company plans to open 100 washes across the nation.
