Protect Your Car’s Original Paint, Here’s How

 In Blog

Rather than having to take your vehicle to get a professional paint touch up in Colorado, it is much easier to help ensure that its paint job never gets damaged in the first place. If you want to save yourself while simultaneously making sure that your vehicle looks as good as possible, then here’s what you’ll need to do in order to make sure that your car’s original paint is as protected as possible.

Regularly Wax It

When it comes to protecting the exterior of your vehicle, there are few things as effective as wax. Many drivers make the mistake of thinking that wax is an optional thing for a vehicle. However, a vehicle that doesn’t have any wax on it is going to suffer a lot of damage from seemingly innocent things like the sun. This is because the wax is able to create a protective layer on top of the car’s paint job that helps to prevent any of the elements from directly affecting the car’s original paint.

Tips For Avoiding Car Paint Damage

Waxing a car can make its paint look great for significantly longer.

But your vehicle will need more than just the wax that gets sprayed on during an automatic car wash. You should instead get a hand wax job as part of a complete automotive detailing.

Immediately Remove Bird Droppings and Tree Sap

These things are more than just eyesores on your vehicle. They are also damaging the car’s paint job in a significant way every minute that they are left on the vehicle. So even though there might only be one or two spots of bird droppings or tree sap on your car, it is still a good idea to give it a wash to help remove it as soon as possible. The acidic level of bird droppings will actually eat away at the vehicle’s original paint, while the tree sap will cause a permanent stain on the paint job if left for long enough.
