Is your vehicle’s paint surface smooth?

Regular cleaning and polishing your cars paint surface is crucial to protecting the shine and resale value.

“Keeping your car clean will significantly help preserve its overall value, according to the Car Care Council.”

Here at Nassau Motor, and other local car companies, we’ve been finding increasing incidents of what is referred to as “Industrial Fallout” on paint surfaces.

The photo below from Spieshecker.com shows what the longer effects of industrial fallout can do to your paint. Initially you might notice the surface does not feel smooth, or even see small black spots, but eventually this is the damage that is done, forcing an entire paint job.

If you catch it soon enough there is a clay product available on the market that will remove the spots. It will then be up to you to keep the surface cleaned and polished. A good yard stick told to us by a local body shop is once you do not see water beads running off your vehicle when it rains, that’s a good indication you should polish it. Also, we don’t recommend using dish washing liquid to wash your car. Use products manufactured for cleaning and polishing or other damage might result.

We recommend reading your owners manual to see how the manufacturer suggests you keep your vehicle paint surface in good condition, but here’s what the Car Care Council goes on to say:

“Simply cleaning your vehicle not only fosters a sense of pride and accomplishment, but it also protects your valuable vehicle investment,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It’s a task that takes very little money or effort, but has huge returns.”

“Polishing your vehicle once every six months and washing it once a week prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt that may harm the vehicle’s finish. In addition to regular care, it is important to look for any dents, dings, scratches or cracked glass. These problems, when left unattended, can lead to more expensive repairs down the line. Frequent washing and polishing is also the best way to protect your car’s finish from the damaging effects of harsh ultraviolet rays and acid rain.

“It is imperative to clean your car only with products sold specifically for cars which are specially formulated to ensure that the treatments your vehicle’s manufacturer included on the paint finish remain intact. Using harsh detergents, like dish soap, that are not intended for use of vehicle exteriors can damage those protective layers leaving your vehicle even more vulnerable to the elements than before you washed it.
