Should you wash your car after it rains?

Yes, it’s one of the most important times to wash your car! Many people think that a rain shower is a good wash for your car, but that isn’t true. It can actually harm the paint on your vehicle. As rain falls it collects pollutants from the air, this is called acid rain causing etchings in the paint on your car. The only way to remove the etchings is to polish and buff if out. The longer the pollutants are on your car the more damage it can do to the cars finish.

We know you’re busy, but washing your car even once every two weeks can make a big difference in protecting the finish on your car. Always wash your car as soon as possible after driving in salt conditions. Don’t assume in the winter season where it’s warm enough to rain that it will wash off the salt. In fact, it’s a great idea to head straight to the car wash after it rains or the temperature is warmer than 35 degrees.
