Hand washing is the best way to properly and safely remove the dirt from a vehicle. Incorrect methods of washing a vehicle will produce swirl marks in the vehicle's clear coat. Swirl marks can be removed, but requires many complex processes to properly REMOVE the clear coat imperfections. The key to washing a vehicle is to remove the dirt without affecting your vehicle's clear coat in anyway!
YES!!! Car Washes are great for what they are, but if you truly want to remove the dirt and not just spray pressurized water at it, you must handwash your vehicle. Simply spraying your vehicle with a pressure washer will not remove the dirt. When you proceed to dry your vehicle, the dirt that hasn't be removed will be rubbed into your vehicle's clear coat producing ugly swirls. If you don't dry your vehicle, you will be left with water spots and the dirt that you didn't remove.
Waxing a vehicle provideds a layer of protection from UV rays. Even the "Never Wax Again" coating that is applied should be conditioned periodically. Waxing the "Never Wax Again Coating" will not harm it in anyway, but will provide a layer of added protection and a deeper shine. All vehicles should be waxed at least twice a year.... look at your owner's manual!

Properly waxing a vehicle is a complex process. Different waxing applications will produce different end results. Generally speaking, you have liquid 1-step systems, paste waxes, liquid waxes, and a 3-Step clay bar process. First off, the Clay Bar process is the best waxing system. It is the only way to properly extract all of the dirt and other impurities that are embedded in your vehicle's clear coat. This process is then followed by a "Paint Cleanser" and in most applications, finished with a good Liquid or Paste Caranuba Wax. The quality of the finishing wax is what will produce deeper, richer paint colors and will provide longer lasting protection. Paste Waxes are better then Liquid Waxes. On the other hand, you have the liquid 1-step systems. These systems try to pack all of the processes stated above into one appplication. They produce decent results, but cannot compare to the Clay Bar Systems!
Depending on the system you choose, this answer will change. A full Clay Bar process should be completed at least twice a year. (i.e. before/after Winter, before/after Spring) The liquid 1-step systems should be applied about ever 3-4 months. In between waxes, to maintain shine and protection, quick spray waxes can be applied to maintain a "Just Waxed" look. If your vehicle is constantly exposed to the elements and sun, it is smart to have it waxed more frequently.
When you return a leased vehicle, it is inspected for wear and tear. If the vehicle shows signs of excessive wear, additional charges may be be added. Also if you return a
dirty vehicle you may have to pay the leasor to clean it... which will probally be ALOT more then our rates.
