Some people love to wash at home, and we get that. But if you’re washing your car yourself, make sure to use the right products and techniques. Certain soaps and sponges can do more harm than good to your paint. And keep an eye on water usage – at-home washes typically use 75% more water than a car wash like Spark Ledgewood.
First and foremost, if you can see anything on your car, wash it off. This is why we love unlimited memberships – first sign of anything that may oxidize and three minutes later we’re through the Spark tunnel in Ledgewood and our car is safe. Second, protect the clearcoat that protects your paint with carnauba wax and ceramic coating, both of which are in a Signature Wash at Spark.
Surprisingly, no. Rain brings contaminants in the air down onto your car, leaving a grimy layer of pollutants when it evaporates. If you wash with Spark Rain Repel before it rains, those contaminants won’t stay on your car and you’ll be way ahead of the game. And if you absolutely can’t make it in time, the second best option is right after a rainstorm … or even during! Spark Ledgewood is always open, even when it’s raining.
