Auto detailing for pollen and bugs
If you don’t have allergies you’re lucky. You don’t get that magical sixth sense that makes you feel when the surrounding plant life decides to have a pollen fest, which attract a million bugs. But whether you have allergies or not, no one’s vehicle likes to have pollen or bugs dulling its shine. So here are some auto detailing tips for N Charlotte drivers on how to deal with the inevitable pollen and dead bugs that will end up on your vehicle during the summer.
Removing pollen from the outside of your vehicle isn’t that hard most of the time. A hand carwash usually does the trick when there’s not severe pollen buildup. But pollen quickly becomes an auto detailing nightmare when it gets on the inside of your vehicle. To remove pollen from your N Charlotte Toyota’s carpet and upholstery we recommend using and interior vehicle shampoo. This will help remove the pollen, dust mites and any other irritant that may be lingering there. Believe us, your allergies will thank you!
We all know that bugs are an important part of the ecosystem and some of them are essential for plant life, but they aren’t good for your car’s paint. When you hit a bug at a high speed and they explode on your car, adhesive proteins and enzymes are produced during the bug’s decomposition that are very damaging to your car’s surface. Depending on how long a bug’s carcass festers on your vehicle determines how hard it is to get off. You may have to soak those neglected areas before you start hand scrubbing them. This will help chemically unattached the bugs so you don’t accidentally remove some paint with your scrubbing. Remember that the longer you leave dead bugs on your car the higher chance that they’ll cause paint damage. So try to get them off your vehicle with an N Charlotte auto detailing as soon as you see them!
