Depending on your location, pollen season is either on its way-or already here. At some point between March and April you should begin to notice gentle clouds of tree dust showering down from tree blossoms and covering absolutely everything. Your home, your clothes, your shoes, and your car as well.
And whether you have allergies or not, this pollen can be a problem.
Bad for allergy sufferers
If you get springtime allergies, you know just how rough this season can get. The symptoms are miserable, leaving you with irritated eyes, a runny nose, and coughing and sneezing fits–and all during a time of the year when you should be outside, in the sun, enjoying yourself and the warm, beautiful weather.
And, making matters worse, because this pollen is everywhere and sticky it can and will hitchhike into your car, onto your clothes, and then into your home or workplace where you just can’t seem to get away from it.
Bad for your car
It’s just annoying tree dust, right? As long as you brush it out of the way and can see the road what’s the problem?
Well, along with acid rain, road salt, bug smear, and bird droppings, neglected pollen on your vehicle can be surprisingly damaging. The pollen itself is barbed on the microscopic level, allowing it to catch the tiny pores in your vehicle’s clear coat and hang on despite wind, motion, or rain. And over time the organic compounds in that embedded pollen will break down, turning acidic and etching at your car’s surfaces to cause fading and clearcoat damage.
Plus, it’s just plain annoying to look at.
