The sun can do much more than damage your skin, it can damage your car’s paint. The bold summer sun never fails to wreak havoc on vehicles. A little preparation can go a long way in saving you hundreds if not thousands on cosmetic repairs for your vehicle. To kickoff the summer, we’re going to give you some insightful tips on protecting your car.
WASH YOUR VEHICLE
One of the most important things you can start doing is washing all that dust, tree pollen, bird droppings, and grime off your car. All these things resting on your car for too long will damage the paint job. On average your vehicle’s paint is only about 0.006 inches thick allowing for things as common as bird droppings to easily ruin your exterior paint job. You can take your car to the best car wash in town, or you can do it yourself. Get a soft clean cotton cloth, a bucket, a car cleaning solution from the store, and get started. There might be some spots that are a little tricky to clean like road tar, we recommend using detailing clay to touch up those spots. It’s an extremely friendly way to get spots removed without damaging or scratching your car’s nice paint finish. After you’ve given your car a wash, properly dry it off. An additional step that extends the fresh look on your vehicle is adding some car wax to the exterior. This will make your car look phenomenal up to a week after the wash.
BUYING A CAR COVER FOR PROTECTION
Once you’ve cleaned your car, your next step is to protect it from the elements. The sun rays, bird droppings, dust, and tree pollen don’t care that you’ve just washed your car. Make sure your car has the proper cover it needs to protect its paint. It’s important to remember the qualities that make a good car cover before purchasing one.
