Many people are surprised to find out that automatic car washes do more harm than good. Though they may seem like the easiest and convenient way to get your vehicle clean, the results cause scratches and an unsightly car for the long term. 

How automatic car washes can damage your vehicle 

They reuse the water

While they seem environmentally friendly, using recycled water means a build up of contaminants. The dirt and grime from all the other vehicles before yours is not only used to wash yours, but the grit is actually scratching your vehicle.

Harsh chemicals and cleaning solutions

The typical car automatic wash uses inexpensive cleaning solutions to minimize overall operational costs, which has acid as the main ingredient. Your car’s protective wax and paint are slowly eroded by this acid.

They remove dirt with rotating brushes, which may not seem impactful, but they leave swirls and scratches that dull your vehicle’s paint.

Inability to remove dirt

Their capability to remove all the dirt is severely lacking, especially in automatic touchless car washes. Dirt accumulates because trouble spots are neglected, which leaves your car dingy in just a few short days.

Inefficient drying

Lingering streaks and spots that are not sufficiently dried with the heated air in the car wash, will require extreme polishing to remove, if not promptly cleaned with solution. If that wasn’t enough, if the vehicles are dried by hand, those towels are also just as dirty, combined with the residue and cross contamination. These types of establishment choose how fast they can get cars through over efficiency.
