Simple Tips for Preventing Cosmetic Damage


By taking some simple precautions, you can reduce the risk of your vehicle suffering cosmetic damage.

At Magic Touch Paint and Body, our experienced technicians can flawlessly repair any type of auto body damage.

Easy Ways to Protect Your Car's Exterior

There are some basic precautions you should take when washing/waxing your car. You should only use non-abrasive materials when washing, and it's best to use microfiber washing mitts, which are meant for this type of task and won't scratch your paint. Prior to waxing, you should make sure that there's no debris on your car's surface that could get dragged along and cause scratches. And if you want to be supremely cautious, you might prefer to skip automatic car washes because their brushes are known to to sometimes build up debris that doesn't fully rinse off between vehicles. When the debris doesn't rinse away, the next vehicle that goes through could become scratched by it as the brushes do their work.

If you're out running errands, you can reduce the risk of cosmetic damage by parking in a less crowded area of the lot. When you park right near the store's entrance, there's a better chance that you'll end up tightly sandwiched between two other vehicles. This makes it more likely that your car will suffer body damage by way of someone carelessly swinging their door open right into the side of your vehicle. And if you happen to run into an acquaintance while out and about, it'll be best if you don't lean against your vehicle while conversing. If you rest your weight against your car and then shift your position, sharp edges on your clothing could cause paint scratches.

Another easy way to keep your car's body in excellent condition is to keep a spot-cleaning kit in your vehicle. This will allow you to quickly clean up messes as they arise. In particular, bird droppings should be cleaned up quickly because they're corrosive.
