“This is the best car wash I recommend using during pollen season!” says Yelp Elite Jennifer Harrison. “My car is my 2nd most expensive investment and I trust Lighthouse Express Car Wash for consistent and superb results during pollen season!”
The sun is out and the birds are chirping… uh oh, here’s comes the sneezes!! Well with spring bringing us the good weather and fun in the sun, there’s always going to be a negative aspect; for awhile at least. Sadly, we are getting tortured by little particles naked to the eye known as pollen.
To begin with pollen by definition, in short is a fine powdery substance, typically yellow, and consists of microscopic grains discharged from a flower or tree. Pollen generally has no harm on your vehicle except the appearance until it is wet in any way such as rain or morning dew on your car. Once activated, the pollen’s acidity levels will dramatically increase therefore causing the pollen to damage your paint prematurely. Pollen can cause premature oxidation, staining and scratches. I don’t know about you but I definitely do not want scratches or any damage to my car.
The best way to remove the pollen is a good ol’ classic car wash. The soap will loosen up the pollen off the vehicle’s surface. With the use of light brushing and scrubbing, the pollen should be completely gone. Lastly, be sure to rinse the vehicle over with clean running water in every spot and to dry the vehicle using a clean microfiber towel. It is recommended that you get a weekly wash during pollen season to prevent any damage to both the vehicle and its appearance.
Caring for your vehicle’s appearance is important but to make it easy on you, consider purchasing a detail bi-yearly or wash with a high quality express wax such as Armor All Extreme Shine Wax and paint sealant to protect that precious investment. An affordable way to do so is to sign up for a quality unlimited car wash membership or purchased car washes in bulk.
In conclusion, the pollen not only causes havoc on our cars but on our body. Be sure to check your car cabin filter to keep pollen out of your interior.
