Should I wash my car before or after the rain

We all have done it, we detail our cars and next thing you know it pours!!, its like pur money was washed away (intended pun). Well it is not a waste believe it or not, in the next few paragraphs we will explain why

As rain falls, it collects pollutants and contaminants from the air, and this is called Acid Rain. Look at the photo to the left, this is the effect of dried rain on a car. The Acid Rain has etched its way into the paint and caused defects. The only way to remove the etching is to polish and buff it out with a dual action polisher and professional grade buffing pads. 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.

Now not just rain can caused this, recycled water and potable water have minerals that cause the same damage, always get your car wash with reputable detailera that use clean non mineralized water.

The best solution to prevent this is to add sealants to your car which should always be applied by a certified installer. There are many products out there that can protect from 1yr to 5yrs, DDYC Is an authorized installer of ceramic coatings and we recommended this product for any car.
