This includes both regular servicing and regular cleaning. In addition to looking clean and new, cleaning prevents excessive wear and tear that can be caused by dust, sand, rain, salt, bird droppings, tree sap etc. Over time these substances can wear down the paintwork, leaving the car finish exposed and vulnerable to additional damages.
