Many people think that when the car sits under the rain, that the rain water will wash the dirt and salt off the car, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. Actually, rain water can cause even more damage than it helps. For this reason, we recommend always washing your car after it rains. I’m sure we’ve all heard of Acid Rain, where rain collects pollutants and contaminants from the air as it falls. Even after a short rainfall, rainwater and pollutants collect on your vehicle. The rain water eventually evaporates, leaving a thin layer of pollutants that can damage your car’s finish. The longer you leave the pollutants and contamination on your vehicle’s finish, the more damage it will inflict on your cars paint finish. For these reasons, it is often a good idea to head straight to the car wash after it rains and right now, you can receive $2 off any automatic car wash at any of our Stephens City, Winchester, Inwood or Berkeley Springs locations!
