Fall Allergens Can Also Damage Your Car's Paint

September 8, 2022

As the leaves change color and fall to the ground, the pollen count in the air rises. For those with seasonal allergies, this time of year can be tough to get through. The itchy eyes, runny nose, and constant sneezing are enough to drive anyone crazy. But did you know those fall allergies can also wreak havoc on your car's paint job? Here are some of the most common fall allergens and how they can damage your car's paint.


Ragweed Pollen

Ragweed is one of the most common fall allergens and is a major contributor to outdoor air pollution. Ragweed pollen can cause inflammation and swelling of the mucous membranes, as well as watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing. It can also cause hives, rashes, and difficulty breathing. In addition to these irritating symptoms, ragweed pollen can also damage your car's paint job. Ragweed pollen is abrasive and can scratch your car's paint if not removed in a safe and timely manner.


Mold Spores

Mold spores are another common allergen that peak in the fall months. Mold spores can cause a variety of respiratory problems, including coughing, difficulty breathing, wheezing, and watery eyes. Mold spores can also trigger Asthma attacks or make existing respiratory conditions worse. In addition to these respiratory problems, mold spores can also damage your car's paint job by causing the paint to peel or fade over time. 


Fall allergies are no fun for anyone. But in addition to sneezing, watery eyes, and runny noses, fall allergies can also damage your car's paint job. So be sure to wash your car regularly during the fall months to remove any allergens that could potentially damage your vehicle's finish.
