How to Quickly and Safely Remove Bird Droppings

cleaning hood of car

You just cleaned your car. You washed, dried, and waxed the outside, vacuumed and wiped down the inside, and even scrubbed the rims. You take it for a spin to the grocery store, but when you come back to your car, there’s a large white smudge on the hood from a fly-by attack.

 

Bird droppings are not only visually appealing, but they can also damage the paint on your car. Bird droppings are acidic, meaning that when they land on your car’s surface, they can begin to burn the paint and the protective coating. The longer the bird droppings remain, the greater the damage, so the most important thing to remember is that time is of the essence. We’ve put together a few tips to help you get rid of bird droppings and save the paint on your car!

 

Specialized Wipes

There are wipes designed to remove bird poop from cars. They contain a blend of chemicals that will neutralise the droppings and stop them from damaging your paint.

 

Club Soda

Club soda not only helps remove stains from clothes, but it also can clean bird droppings off of a car’s paint. Spray some on the affected area, leave it for a few minutes, then rinse away with water.

 

If you’re not “lucky” enough to catch the droppings while they’re still fresh, it may take you a few extra steps to remove them. DO NOT try to scrape away at the droppings as this can cause damage to the paint on your car. Follow these steps to remove the droppings.

  1. Soften with Liquid – Soak a cloth in water or club soda and place it on the droppings for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Gently Remove the Droppings – Remove the cloth and spray the droppings with more water. Let it sit for a few seconds and then wipe the area with a clean cloth. You should apply firm pressure but don’t scrub.
  3. Rinse Area Thoroughly – Rinse the area well with clean water and then use a dry cloth to prevent streaks or watermarks.

How Can Paint Protection Benefit My Car?

yellow carPaint Protection is a clear, multi-layerable, liquid nano-ceramic coating that transforms itself on the surface to a permanent, ridged, flexible glass shield. Here at Bill’s Detailing, we use Ceramic Pro products which is three times the hardness and self-cleaning.

Protects Against the Environment

This sealing can protect your car’s paint by reflecting the harmful rays of the sun, preventing paint discoloration. It will also protect it from many of the harsh, acid-full substances, such as bird droppings, tree sap and tree fruits that tend to drop all over cars if they’re parked in the wrong place. It also protects it from the biggest cause of corrosion to paint and metals… road salt.

Retains the Value Longer

Even with regular washing and waxing, maintaining that new-car shine is extremely hard after years of use. Adding a paint protection application to your car will keep it shiny and new for years to come.

Less Car Maintenance

Paint protection coatings create a slick coated surface, making dirt, dust and tar unable to adhere to the paint. This calls for less trips to the car wash. Ceramic Pro also ensures that you will never need to wax your car again. When a car is waxed, it only lasts for about 1-3 months, Ceramic Pro paint protection on the other hand, lasts a lifetime!

While adding paint protection to your car may seem costly, it is actually a great investment. It will protect your vehicle’s exterior from deteriorating for a lifetime! Schedule your paint protection appointment today! 781-341-2621

Why Should I Have My Car Detailed?

There are many reasons to detail a car, but not all of them are cosmetic. Having your car detailed can also create a safer driving experience and extend its life. If you’re on the fence of deciding whether to get your car detailed, here’s a few reasons that may put you over the edge!

Paint Health

The proper cleaning of the outside of a car can greatly extend the life of the paint. The paint on a car is not only for looks, it also protects the metal underneath. When the paint is chipped or worn away, moisture can then reach the metal frame, causing rust and corrosion to occur.

Improved Lighting

Headlights and taillights are only effective if they are clean and free of damage. Even small amounts of dirt and grime on your lights can cause major visibility issues.

Wheels and Tires

Dirt, oil and brake dust are frequently encountered during driving. These can have a negative effect on your wheels and tires. Cleaning the wheels will not only keep them looking great, but also reduce the risk of failure due to corrosion or cracks in the sidewalls.

Interior Condition

Having a messy car is not only disgusting and unappealing, but it can also be very unsafe. If you have trash on the floor of your car, it could get caught under the pedals, causing an unsafe driving experience. Cleaning the interior of your car can also protect the surfaces from wearing down, fading and discoloration.

Having your car detailed has many benefits, including improving the look of it and also making it safer to drive. If you’re looking to have your car detailed, call Bill’s Detailing Service today! 781-341-2621

What Is Ceramic Pro?

carCeramic Pro is a multi-layer-able, clear, liquid nano-ceramic protective coating. It is used in many industries such as automotive, aircraft, marine, construction, machinery and textile industries. It can also be used on many materials such as metal, glass, plastic, stone, leather and rubber.

Ceramic Pro has a hardness level above 9H, whereas normal clear coats have a hardness between 2H and 4H. This helps immensely when it comes to protecting minor scratches on the windows and the paint on the car. It also has a UV protection which will help protect your car against the fading of the paint.

This advanced technology allows the Ceramic Pro nano-particles to fill in the smallest pores in the paint on your vehicle; allowing it to repel water and giving it a shiny and smooth look. Ceramic Pro is often referred to as the self-cleaning effect because it lowers the surface tension, preventing contaminants from sticking to the surface. This includes bird droppings, dirt, dust, tar, bugs, and graffiti paint, which can easily be removed by water.

Ceramic Pro is becoming the most popular protective coating because it’s a permanent, one-time application process, compared to waxes and sealants that degrade very quickly.
