Spring Wash

The weather is finally starting to shape up here in Chicago and business is booming for drive-through car washes and hand washes. You may also be excited to perform your driveway wash this spring. Whether you’re sporting a brand new car or maintaining and old ride, regular washing is important for its upkeep.

How often should I wash my car?
Tree sap, bird droppings, bugs, sun, grease, and dirt are all harmful elements that can corrode your vehicle and strip away wax and paint. Don’t let these materials build up on your vehicle. Location and climate are also two main factors that determine how often you’ll need to wash your car. If you live in an area with heavy pollution and sea salt in the air, consider washing your car a few times per month. If you live in an area with little pollution, you can get away wish washing once a month in the warmer months, and more often in winter months if snow and salt accumulate.

What kind of products should I use?
Be advised not to use household cleaning products like hand soaps, dishwashing soaps, or glass cleaners on paint. Only use car-wash formulated products so that you do not strip away protective wax or paint. A soft, natural sponge will work great for applying suds to your auto body. A soft, nonabrasive cloth will also help to remove stubborn deposits from wheel wells and the lower edge of the body. We recommend using a separate rag for the wheels and tires to avoid transferring dirt onto the car’s body.

Indoor cleanse!
Now that you have washed the exterior of your car, how about sweeping through the interior to really complete the job? If you have time to remove trash, dust, and cleanse the interior windows, your car will really thank you! It also feels great to step into a fresh, clean car!

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
