I was just detailing this car at our car wash in Conyers, GA and it made me ask the question, “when is the best time to perform a detail on my car?” Wondering when is a prime time to perform a detail on your car? I find that detailing on hazy or days that have a slight drizzle are ideal to perform auto details because of two main factors. No direct sunlight and cool temperature which makes it an optimal time to apply a coat of Carnauba wax as well as wiping off the wax residue. Direct sunlight or overly warm temperatures can cause difficulties in removing all wax residue and can be draining on the detailers themselves. Over the years I have discovered overcast days are perfect for Detailing my vehicle and we recommend that you do the same. Check out our Full Detail services we performed today with Carnauba Hot Wax, Black Magic Tire Shine, Clay Bar, 100% Brazilian Carnauba Wax, and High Speed Buff. Check out our Express and Full Detail Services menu online and schedule your appointment for your next detail by contacting us at our car wash. Lighthouse Express Car Wash – Let Your Ride Shine!
Did you know that keeping your car clean and detailed can help organize your life more and make you feel better? See what Scott H had to say in his yelp review which demonstrates this point. On top of helping one feel better, keeping your car clean and detailed can help increase the value of your car! As a matter of fact, a car with a faded finish and unkempt look will sell for 10% – 20% less than a cleaner, nicer looking vehicle. So if you’re planning to sell your car, we suggest having your car cleaned and professionally detailed before taking your car, truck, or van to your potential buyer. We recommend detailing your car twice a year. Our manager details his car 3 to 4 times a year which to some may be too much but to the car enthusiast is totally natural. Take a look at our recommended cleaning/detailing schedule for more information. In a nutshell : Detailing helps to restore your car to its factory shine finish and helps to maxmize the resale value.

Reasons to Wash Your Car
Now that you know that professional car washes are the better environmental choice, here are some other reasons you should wash your car regularly:
1) Protect your investment.
The better the condition of your vehicle, the higher the resale or trade-in value. Depending upon the vehicle, regular cleaning can equate to thousands of dollars in value. Acid rain, road salt, bird dropping and sun damage are just some of the threats to your car’s condition that can be addressed by regular car care.
2) Take pride and feel good.
A clean car looks better and communicates pride. Who doesn’t feel better driving a clean car?
3) Drive safely.
Washing regularly keeps windshields, mirrors and signal lights clean. You will see more of the road, and others will be better able to see you.
4) Improve fuel economy.
Did you know that the cleaner your car, the less wind resistance? That means better fuel economy.
5) Save time and money.
Your time is valuable, so don’t waste it in your driveway or at the store buying supplies. Instead, visit a professional car wash and get a great wash, at the right price, in just a few minutes.
6) It’s safe for the vehicle.
The world’s automobile manufacturers trust professional car washes with their new vehicles and so can you. Today’s car wash technology is washing cars more safely and effectively than ever before. And, a recent study of more than 5 million car washes revealed the rate of damage to be less than one-tenth of one percent – and that even included pre-existing damage (ie. Vehicles that come to the car wash that are already damaged)!
