August 24, 2023

Getting ready for school days car wash | Columbia Auto Care and Car Wash

As you complete items on your back-to-school list, don’t forget about your car! Whether you’re a soccer mom, a college student, or a high-school driver, now is the perfect time to visit a car wash to make the right first-day impression. And the team at Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash can help.

At Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash, we offer the best and most state-of-the-art car wash in Columbia, MD. We will get your vehicle sparkling clean and have you on your way in plenty of time to finish your last-minute back-to-school tasks. Let’s explore why visiting Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash before the first day of school is a win-win.

Don’t Embarrass Your Kids with a Dirty Car

Any parent knows the insanity, anticipation, and excitement of the first day of school and the drop-off line. It’s literally like a parade with your vehicle and child on display. If you drop your kid or kids off, the last thing you want is to draw unwanted attention because your car looks like you’ve been mudding. This oversight can cause you and your child embarrassment. Instead, Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash can quickly wash the exterior of your vehicle and ensure everyone makes the right first impression.

Get Rid of Pet Odors

If you have pets, your car seats and floors have their share of pet traffic. Over time, pet odors and hairs can accumulate in your car. Ridding your vehicle of pet odor starts with thoroughly vacuuming it. To make this process as easy as possible, Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash offers complimentary high-powered vacuums with every car wash. This way, you can have a cleaner interior to match the exterior.

Protect Your Paint from Elements

No matter the time of the year, it’s always the right time to wash your vehicle. In addition to the aesthetic appeal of a car wash, it’s designed to protect your investment. The accumulation of contaminants on your car’s surface can cause damage to its paint. Clear coat scratches can be caused by dirt and sand. At the same time, surface erosion happens when bird droppings, acid rain, and other corrosive substances interact with the paint. With so many factors looking to damage your paint, your best line of defense is a regular car wash.

Regular car washing addresses these issues and prevents rust formation. You can amplify the impact with paint protectant like Rain-X Complete Surface Protectant and Armor All® Extreme Shine Wax.

Save Time with the Advanced, Automatic Car Wash

We get it — it’s Back to School time, and you have a million things to do, including picking up school supplies, school clothes, and prepping for the first day. This leaves little to no time for a car wash. Fortunately, Columbia Auto Care has an advanced, state-of-the-art car wash that can quickly and efficiently clean your vehicle with unparalleled precision. Our service allows you to keep your vehicle showroom ready without spending hours doing it yourself.

Keeping your car clean is easier and more cost-efficient than ever with a car wash membership at Columbia Auto Care & Car Wash.
