When to Get an Auto Wash After a New Paint Job

If you have recently gotten a new paint job on your vehicle, or are planning one in the new future, you may want to be careful when figuring out a time to give it an auto wash afterword. New paint jobs on vehicles do not come cheap, and, if you’re not careful, you can damage the job done if you’re too hasty when cleaning.

When to wash

When your vehicle has gotten a new paint job, it is suggested to wait two weeks before washing your car. This is because different types of paint need time to set after being applied to your vehicle and scrubbing too hard with chemicals meant for cleaning can disrupt this process. If you encounter any mud, bird droppings, or anything else that needs to be taken care of immediately, rinse the area and gently dry with a soft micro-fiber towel made for vehicles so you don’t do any damage to your new paint.

Time to wax

Compared to washing your car, it is typically better to wait a longer period of time to wax after getting a new paint job. This time may vary depending on the type of paint being used, but typically two months is enough time to make sure your paint has “cured” and is ready to be waxed.
