Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I have my vehicle washed?
Frequent washing is essential to the life of your vehicle’s chrome and painted surfaces. Car wash manufacturers recommend that you wash your car every 7-10 days. Of course, these estimates will vary depending upon whether your vehicle is kept in a garage or out in the elements.
Why does my car ride better after i’ve washed it? Am I imagining it?
Not at all! Actually, the reason is very simple. Dirt and grime collect in the areas around your vehicle’s wheels and surfaces. The concentrated spray at SMH Car Wash removes this dirt and grime, giving you a smoother ride.
Isn’t rain a natural, cost-effective car wash?
No! Rain and snow contain acids that eat away at the paint and finish of vehicles. After acid rain falls on a vehicle, the water evaporates, but the acid remains. Concentrated by sunlight, this acid can become so strong that it will eat through the finish, ruining the vehicle’s paint and appearance. It is best to wash your car ASAP after it rains.
Why would I choose a hand wash over a conventional wash? Why is hand washing better
A hand car wash provides a better service than automated systems because the washer is able to see blemishes and provide the appropriate amount of pressure to remove them. Advanced systems cannot adjust their settings for different levels of cleanliness. It is this ability to adjust to each vehicle’s condition that makes hand washing a premium process.
