These issues can be resolved easily with our scratch removal service.
Common Causes of Car Paint Scratches
There are numerous ways a car’s paint can be damaged, and it’s impossible to stop them all. However, with proper precautions you can avoid a great deal of auto paint damage and help your car look great for years to come.
Here are some of the most common causes of paint scratches on cars:
- Infrequent car washes – everyday, your car is exposed to a variety of different elements. Rain is acidic, dust and other air pollutants are abrasive, and other car fluids like gasoline or oil can be corrosive as well.
- Bird droppings – they are highly corrosive. Droppings that are unwashed will eventually eat away your car’s paint, so be sure to wash them off immediately.
- Stones & rocks – these small objects chip the surface of the paint and leave openings that contribute to paint degeneration.
- Fluctuating temperature – paint expands and contrasts with the changes in temperature. Over time, this will result in small cracks and openings that will allow the infiltration of moisture, salt, and other chemicals causing rust and rapid deterioration of the paint.
