Oh no… not water spots on my new car! Yes, that can happen!-- a lot when water is plentiful. And it seems to be the case right now. With the stray sprinkler spraying your car, during the day, or the use of hard water from a hose when you washed your car at home, last weekend the sources are everywhere. Some of them can even show up in the "standing water” effects after those July afternoon storms that have occurred this month in the Gallatin Valley. It is a good idea to make sure that you stay familiar with what hard water stains can look like and the potential trouble they can cause your vehicle. Do water spots begin to appear on your vehicle awhile after the effects of heavy rain or after a run in with splashes from a dirty puddle? Appearing as blotch-like “ringed” stains, showing up as areas of discoloration, they can be plentiful before you know it. After all, when you are really “on the go” during a busy summer, it is likely that you will begin to forget how often you pass through those dirty puddles of water. Your vehicle becomes a catch-all for extra amounts of... water: water that has been forming in low places on the ground and collecting various minerals. When this occurs, it is a good idea to deal with the results sooner rather than later.
It is all of those extra minerals that can really cause damage to your pristine paint job. Are you ready to deal with the need before it gets larger? They are not something that generally come off with a simple water, rag and car soap. They are often on a “deeper level” and can “etch” themselves into the side of your vehicle with prolonged residency. So, if it is dangerous to let them continue to grow until there is damage on your car, what can you do to alleviate the problem? A clay bar and the right solution can help, yet sometimes it requires more than this. If the stains are “deep” it may be time to have a full detail and receive a buffing job, across the vehicle paint. Not only will it take away those deep stains, but it can also help remove scratches that have come from the normal wear and tear that vehicles encounter. As often as you drive the vehicle, you want it to stay clean, especially after dealing with those hard to remove spots when they form on the vehicles’ exterior.
A little wax over the top can bring out that original color and protect things substantially, with the proper maintenance. Imagine it: how great to see that shine with a reflection on the side of a vehicle after a fresh detail!
