Spring is here and we’re all thankful for the warmer weather, but April is only DAYS away, bringing those infamous April showers! But that doesn’t mean it is time to ease up on your exterior car maintenance.

While you may think that rain will clean your car perfectly fine, it leaves behind corrosive acid rain, which can permanently damage your exterior paint. For more information, read the EPA’s article Effects of Acid Rain on Automobile Coatings.

“Environmental fallout”—a term widely used in the auto and coatings industries—refers to damage caused by air pollution (e.g., acid rain), decaying insects, bird droppings, pollen, and tree sap–all of which come with warmer, Spring weather.

These exterior assaults can all cause serious damage to the paint and surface of your vehicle. Leave your car parked in the hot sun, and the damage will be intensified.

Regular washing is one of the keys to keeping these acidic and unsightly blemishes from digging into your cars finish. Don’t give them the chance to damage your paint, because there is no going back.
