A Substitute For A Car Wash
"Is all water created equal?"
Well, it's not when if comes to a car wash!
Rainy season may seem like the solution to a car owner’s car wash troubles; however, rain can actually be what stops a vehicle from getting clean.
STORM RELATED FACTORS
wind, rain, and other storm related weather makes cars dirtier in most cases. Wind can pick up particles from the ground causing scratches and other damage. Rain can react with the dirt on the vehicle. This reaction can result in things like chipping paint and corrosion. Dirt can also weaken paint. This not only makes the vehicle look old and worn, but can also hurt resale value later.
According to the Environmental Protecting Agency of the United States, normal rain is “slightly acidic” due to the levels of carbon dioxide that dissolve in the liquid and form “weak carbonic acid.” Even outside a city, rain by nature is more acidic than water used at a professional car wash. Imagine how acid rain can impact a vehicle over time. The damage is often permanent and costly to repair.
High water pressure is extremely important while cleaning a car because it helps prevent scratches and other damage. Rain simply cannot provide the right amount of pressure needed to clean a car properly. High water pressure allows the dirt to be removed safely, so the car is left in the best possible condition.
Letting the rain do the washing will eliminate soap (one of the necessary products needed to protect the vehicle) altogether. Water alone cannot leave a vehicle in prime condition. A vehicle needs the proper products in order to look like new.
