Not So Innocent: Rain & Pollen Damage Your Paint Job

We often blame winter’s snow and salt for making our vehicles age prematurely, but did you know that rain and pollen can have a similar effect?

The weather’s getting warmer, outdoor activities abound, and pollen is in the air. But you can’t rely on the rain to wash it off and prevent it from damaging your vehicle’s paint. Water without the presence of a quality car wash soap can cause pollen to become acidic and begin slowly eating away at your paint job.

Driving through a rainstorm is not the same as going to the carwash. Lots of rainfall means more moisture in the air, which attracts contaminants. This moisture also harms the exterior of your car through chemical reactions that lead to rust if you aren’t doing enough preventative maintenance. And ask anyone with a rusty vehicle—it doesn’t happen overnight, but once it starts it’s hard to stop!

Car care experts recommend washing your car 2-3 times per month.
