Paintwork is the most visible component of your car, and the most easily damaged - and the most easily looked after by you!
Animal droppings can be acidic, and, if left can eat into the paintwork. Dust, tar and other road grime can also cause damage over time, reducing the look and value of your car.
Washing your car's windows and mirrors also plays an important part in safety, increasing your visibility and cutting down on glare.
If you are storing your car for any length of time, look at investing in a car cover to protect your paintwork.
To maintain your car's paint in peak condition you should wash it as often as possible, once a week is ideal.
