As the Summer season approaches in Alabama, layers of yellow pollen can be found everywhere, including your car. At High Point Insurance Group, we want to make sure that you know how to protect your vehicle from rain and pollen damage.
Wash Your Car First
Despite the pollen and rain coming down, it is critical to wash and wax your car. A good wash will remove the pollen that has fallen into corners on your car. When you wash your car, make sure to use soap and water, so that any debris and pollen are removed from the exterior of your car. Attempting to remove pollen without soap will cause scratches on your car and can diminish the overall value.
Wax Your Car
After you have washed your car, a protective coat of wax is critical during the pollen season. If there are any cracks in your paint, the pollen can get into it and become a permanent fixture. With wax, your exterior coat is protected from damage. Also, it protects the rain from leaving stains on your car and breaking down the paint.
Replace Cabin Air Filter
At the beginning of the season, you will want to have your cabin air filter replaced. This filter keeps the pollen and any debris carried by rain from coming into the cabin of your car. This keeps you driving safe and protects the interior.
