Bird poop can damage the paint on your car

When you’ve just cleaned your car and it’s looking squeaky clean again, the last thing you want is to come outside the next morning and see a bird has deposited a good amount of poop on the hood. Especially in coastal areas, where birds eat a lot of fish and chemical stuff, bird poop can actually burn holes in the paint on your car. That’s why it’s important to remove this poop from your car as soon as possible. This is how you do it without scratching your car!

The acids in bird poop are especially aggressive to the coat of your car in warm weather.

Scratches

Temperature fluctuations can cause minor damage to the coat of your car if there’s bird poop on there. The paint underneath the poop won’t expand and shrink as quickly as the paint on the rest of the car. That’s why it’s important to immediately clean bird poop from your car, so it doesn’t dry and become hard. If you remove the poop when it’s already dry, you run the risk of leaving scratches on the paint.
