1.4    Brake dust is also highly corrosive and can lead to irreversible surface damage if left to sit on the wheels for too long.
1.5    Commercial car washes often use highly reactive chemical compound often highly acidic and abrasive tools to clean the wheel. Clarify before proceeding.
1.6    Regular cleaning is better than once a while deep cleaning especially with brake dust.
