Car Wax Basics

At Ourisman Fairfax Toyota, we recommend car wax to anyone in Fairfax, VA who wants to keep their vehicles looking new and shiny. It's certainly something you can do on your own, or if you prefer, we can help you with that step.

In addition to adding some sheen, wax also acts as a protective barrier. This barrier can keep moisture from collecting on your exterior paint, and it can also keep dust, grime, pollen, and other particles from building up on your vehicle. Some of these materials can break down paint and other surfaces, so this is actually an important part of caring for your car.

Some types of wax are extracted from plants, and others are man-made to have the same characteristics as natural wax. In the end, the exact type of wax you choose might not matter as much, especially if you apply it two or three times a year.
