How to Keep Your Car’s Paint Looking Brand New

If you’ve just bought a new car, it’s only natural that you want it to continue to look brand-new for as long as possible. Protecting your car’s paint job isn’t always easy, however; it can be damaged by everything from inclement weather to extended exposure to sunlight. Here are some strategies you can use to maintain your car’s luster.

Wash your car regularly. Routine trips to the car wash are a familiar part of many car owners’ schedules, and for good reason. Having your car professionally washed not only keeps it looking great from day to day, but also prevents minor stains and other cosmetic issues from having the chance to corrode your paint.

Don’t forget to wax. Many car owners never bother to have their vehicles waxed, but it’s a good idea to do it from time to time. Not only will the wax keep your car looking shiny and new, but it will also reduce the chances of your paint chipping and will make your car harder to stain. This, in turn, will make it easier to wash your car. Be sure to find out which type of wax is safe to use on your car’s paint.

Use paint film protection. If you really want to keep your car’s paint job safe, you can have your car protected with a special film, which can be applied at an auto body shop. Car wheels can kick up a lot of dust and gravel, which can take a toll on your paint—and the protective film keeps them from even touching it.
