Car-loving friends want their car to be clean and bright inside, especially in rainy seasons, washing the car the next day is a common thing. Although the vehicle no longer looks dirty after washing, and feels different after driving out, we still have to remind everyone that frequent car washing can cause damage to the vehicle.
Injury site 1. Door and window lifter, door lock mechanism
Now cars use electric door and window lifters. Every time the car is washed and washed, water will immerse into the door and window lifter inserts, motors, door lock mechanisms and other parts along the door and window sealant strips (except for good sealing performance). Will cause terminal corrosion, motor short circuit, water inside the lock mechanism rust and other phenomena, and these phenomena are also the most direct cause of door and window lifter and lock mechanism failure.
Solution: After flushing, you must use a wind gun to remove water from the hidden parts to avoid being deposited inside the keyhole because of the incomplete removal of water from the rag; pay attention to the aging of the waterproof strips of doors and windows and seal tightly.
Injury site 2. Wipe off the paint
Cars often run outside without saying, even if you park your car in the community, if it is not rubbed, it is simply a nightmare. Although light rubbing is not as serious as a collision, it is really easy to drop paint. Don't underestimate the paint, once the anti-rust layer behind the paint is damaged, the metal can rust in a few days. In particular, metal parts such as fenders, doors, chassis, etc., have been washed by rain or car washing for a long time, and the rust area will become wider and wider. The most susceptible parts are the parts you can't see. Unless you don't care, even the best car will hurt.
Solution: timely anti-rust treatment
Injury area 3, car paint and car body surface
Frequent car washing can damage car paint and surfaces. Some car wash shops may be better off using tap water, and if groundwater is used to flush the car, the damage may be even greater. Let's talk about frequent car washing. When the high-pressure car washing machine is washing the body surface, the car paint surface must not only bear the pressure from the water, but also the friction of the rag; the groundwater is not filtered, and the water contains a lot of sediment. You can imagine the car paint in these environments, do you know the damage.
1. Minimize the number of car washes (individual freedom is all it takes).
2. The water pressure of the car wash should be controlled flexibly (the chassis can be large and the body can be small).
3. If the body is not very dirty, it is recommended to use waterless car washing (not only to clean the dust, but also to form a protective film on the car paint surface)
Summary: Everyone has the heart of beauty, and you can't just ignore the injuries caused by frequent car washing just to keep the car clean every day. (The above are purely personal opinions)
