Let's Fall into Paint talk

September 30, 2015 by rondex

Fall season is a great time for transition. The leaves on the trees begin to change into vibrant colors and they then proceed to shed gracefully from their branches.

While this transition period may be stunning the leaves can be quite the nuisance to car owners and when they lie on vehicles they can cause quite a bit of damage to the car’s finish.

The Potential Effects of Leaves on Your Car:

When you walk out of your home in the morning to see your car covered in leaves, you probably don’t think much of it. You hop in your car and wait for the wind to whisk them away. Unfortunately, they are doing much more harm than you probably thought.

Leaves contain massive amounts of pollen, sap and other acidic coatings. When the leaves on are left on your car for an extended amount of time, there is a strong possibility that they will leave a permanent leaf-shaped stain right where everyone can see it. In addition, the substances found in the leaves may also sink into the paint of your car causing unsightly micro-abrasions that are difficult to repair. Lastly, leaves may also scratch your car. When they are free falling from a tree, their crisp edges can brush up against your car causing minor yet noticeable scratches.

If you find yourself with paint damage that was caused by falling leaves, the best thing that you can do is thoroughly clean the area with hot water and a quality soap. Then, you’ll want to polish the area and wax it to further protect the finish of your paint.

How to Prevent Paint Damage from Falling Leaves:

The best way to prevent damage from leaves is to keep them from falling onto your car in the first place. Avoid parking under trees, but this isn’t always an option for some people. You should make the effort to brush off the leaves before you drive whenever you possibly can. However, if cleaning leaves off of your car every morning poses to be a hassle, a good preventative approach would be to cover it with a car cover. This is a great way to ensure your car remains safe and undamaged.

Taking the proper preventive measures will save you a lot of money when compared to taking your car to a bodyshop to have the leave damage reversed. After all, the last thing that anyone wants is leaves harming the gorgeous paint finish of their car!
