Automatic Car Washes Damage Your Paint

An Automatic Car Wash Will Damage Your Car Paint Over Time

If you are trying to determine whether you may justify a quick visit to the automatic car wash by weighing the value of your car up against the likelihood of damage and the potential cost of repair, here’s some food for thought: an automatic car wash can damage your vehicle so fast, that signs might appear even after just one visit.

How come damage happens so fast you might wonder?

The answer is simple. The brushes used by automatic washes are usually not properly maintained and thus, make deep micro scratches on the car’s surface, also called swirl marks. The swirl marks can appear after just one visit, but in time, after repeated washes, the damage builds, eventually resulting in the paint becoming dull and the scratches extremely visible.
