Introducing Smart, Automatic Wax Protection from Acid Rain

Is your car not protected from the acid rain? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Come to Shining Star Car Wash for a smart and automatic ceramic wax option. Keep your car safe and leave with a brilliant shine – start today!

As the weather warms and spring showers come, so too, do those dreaded acid rains. East coast cities are especially prone to the damage caused by acid rain – but you don’t have to just stand by and watch your car suffer. At Shining Star Car Wash we want our customers to get the best protection from harmful acids that can be found in rainwater across the country during this season. By understanding a little more about how it works, you can better understand how wax is a great protective measure for your car against acidic conditions —and why choosing us as your go-to car wash specialist means you’ll always have peace of mind when it comes to keeping your vehicle shining and protected even on rainy days.

The PH Level of Rainwater Determines Acidity and the Eastern US Region Gets Hit The Hardest and Auto Insurance Typically Doesn’t Cover Damage

Every spring, the PH level of rainwater suddenly drops, causing acid rains that hit the East coast the hardest. Parts of the eastern US are more prone to acid rain than other parts of the country due to their location and nearby areas that release pollutants into the air. These pollutants react with oxygen in the atmosphere to form sulfuric and nitric acids, which can then be carried by rainwater down to your car’s finish. PH level is what determines acidity; lower PH indicates higher acidity and stronger destructive effects on whatever it comes in contact with – like cars! And, auto insurance typically doesn’t cover damages caused by acid rain. The acidic nature of rainwater can severely damage a car’s paint finish, leading to fading and discoloration over time. To help protect your car from acid rain exposure, take some time to properly wax it before the rainy season. If you have time to wash your vehicle thoroughly and apply a professional wax application yourself – great! If short on time, like 80% of us!, you’ll want to consider an intelligent auto wash that can immediately identify your vehicle’s shape for a thorough but quick cleaning and then automatically apply a wax application. For THE BEST PROTECTION, you may want to consider investing in a ceramic wax.

Thoroughly Cleaning and Applying a Ceramic Wax Application On Your Vehicle is the Best Option for Protection

If you’re not within driving distance to our Shining Star Car Wash in McMurray, Pennsylvania, you’ll want to find a modern automatic car wash that will thoroughly clean your vehicle. At Shining Star Car Wash, we thoroughly but efficiently clean your auto and apply a wax application to give your car or truck that deep shine and protection. Custom nozzle delivery system, air injection and treated water are just a few of the engineering enhancements that optimize coverage and deep treatment in our smart tunnel.

A ceramic wax application will give you THE BEST SHINE AND PROTECTION. It not only lasts longer compared to regular waxes, but it will also areas of the paint finish where former ceramic “coatings” have worn off. Ceramic coatings are hard and resist abrasion, however, they are also incredibly thin and cannot protect the underlying paint from any scratches, bumps, or stone chips. 

Let shining star car wash make sure your set for whatever brave new world spring brings our way!
