Protect The Exterior Of Your Vehicle This Spring

Apr 5, 2021

Your vehicle’s exterior is the first thing people notice when you drive by. If it’s not in tip-top shape, they’ll pass judgment, even if the inside is impeccable. Fortunately, you have control over how the exterior looks. Go over some tips to protect your vehicle’s exterior this spring so you’ll make a great impression every time you’re on the road.

Wax Your Vehicle

Springtime means there’s lots of pollen in the air, and that can wreak havoc on your paint job. Fortunately, wax can protect your car against pollen. It also adds protection against scratches, so you’ll keep your vehicle looking sharp in the long run. There’s a myth that you should only wax your car every so often, but that’s not true. There’s no such thing as too much car wax. Wax as often as you want, so you don’t have to worry about pollen hurting the paint.

Rinse Off the Pollen

What should you do if you walk outside after waxing your car, only to find pollen all over it? The wax will do a great job of protecting your vehicle, but you still need to rinse off the pollen. The water will remove the pollen without taking off the wax. On the other hand, if you were to wash your car, you’d have to rewax it. That’s why it’s easier to stick with water. You can clean the pollen off without having to start over with a fresh coat of wax.

Keep Your Car Covered

If possible, keep your car covered when it isn’t in use. If you have one, pull your car into the garage, but if you don’t, no need to sweat it. You can cover it up with a car cover. You can find a car cover specific to your vehicle or get a generic one. When comparing car covers, you’ll notice that some only take a few seconds to put on and take off. You’ll want something fast and easy to use, so you will use it for the long term. If it takes several minutes to cover and uncover your car each day, you’ll probably end up giving up.

Pollen is just one of the problems you face in Texas. Although, you also have to deal with other drivers on the road, meaning you could get in an accident.
