After the summer, thunderstorms began to rise significantly, the gradual decline in car wash lines of business.
Hangzhou, a car decoration company official told reporters, car washing has always been a "look at weather," the business, frequent heavy rain recently, and many owners do not come to wash up, and that this God to provide "free car wash" service,paper napkins can save a lot of overhead. However, experts point out that such an understanding there is a big misunderstanding.
Because economic development, Zhejiang has always been the hardest hit by acid rain. "2006 State of the Environment, Hangzhou," shows that the frequency of acid rain in Hangzhou in 2006 was 79.8%, downtown-year average of 4.39 pH. Auto experts advise owners of the car, this "acid rain" type of car wash devastating, if not pay attention to long-term care, "free car wash" than they lose.
Harm a finish aging by the corrosion
Many owners believe that the summer rain showers for car, cool, in fact, afternoon, evening thunderstorms occur on a car parked in the open air a hundred harm. Like people, suddenly hot suddenly cold, prone to glass
Experts have warned that the summer is the paint itself "the most test" of the season, the sun's UV rays are a variety of paint and other aging, paper tissue faded or peeling an important factor. If you suddenly encounter some time after exposure to cold water, the paint easier to aging. So, even with a high temperature rinse the car, the car is bad, let alone acidic pH of the water, and acid rain to paint in addition to aging, but also cause corrosion on car paint, increased car paint loss.
Want to protect the car's paint, wash it again after the rain the best car wax conditions can be beat. In general, a good wax to maintain the effect for three months, even in the long summer of the South, marked twice as long as the wax, the car can withstand acid rain, and exposure throughout the summer. If you want to do for the car in the thunderstorm season is more comprehensive and more thorough maintenance, experts recommended that owners can do a paint or enamel paint seal coating care, enamel or paint seal coating can improve the gloss of the original car, while acid can also reduce damage to the paint.
Currently there is a "surgical" automotive paint protection technology, called auto paint curium porcelain. Curium is the latest European porcelain top paint protection technology that can strongly penetrate into the polymer ceramic elements of the pores in the car paint will paint with water, completely isolated from the air, play in a sealed car paint armor protection. Curium porcelain with anti-acid rain, corrosion, oxidation, anti-scratch, anti-high temperature and many other features, can maintain a permanent bright paint. Of course, curium porcelain price is also more expensive, not suitable for most consumers.
Erosion hazard two chassis
Rotten rotten at the end of the first car. Chassis is the closest to the ground site, subject to particularly severe road conditions, vehicle maintenance, many prop up a look, the bottom shell is rust-stained, round loose shell Department has even perforation. The reason acid rain corrosion is the culprit.
Summer due to thunderstorms sudden rain squall, rain splash, in addition to the vehicles parked in the open suffered paint test, the chassis will also be the erosion of acid rain. In addition, the thunderstorms will result in surface water, the vehicle through the water surface, the acid rain will stay attached to the chassis.
In either case, acid rain remain in the chassis will cause corrosion on the chassis, and these acid rain, water vapor will penetrate the body through the pores of the chassis, spread to many parts of the car. However, most owners will not notice these details, ignoring the maintenance of the chassis.
Experts suggest that, after heavy rain, it is necessary to make some chassis maintenance, vehicle cleaning with high pressure spray gun at the bottom is the easiest, quickest way, but the effect is not very good.
More lasting and effective maintenance measure is to do a sealed plastic chassis, which enables the chassis isolation, played anti-corrosion, rust, sound effect, extend the life of the body. However, the sealed plastic chassis before special attention, with a special detergent to remove the chassis attached to the asphalt, oil and dried, the stain will affect any sealed plastic as strong. Sealed plastic front, but also on the transmission system, part of the exhaust system heat shielding, so as not to affect the sealed plastic after the normal operation of these components.
Three interior moisture damage, mildew
After heavy rain, the car is easier to damp, mildew, affecting the health of occupants. Meanwhile, the doors, body parts and welding inside the door hinge, lock and other iron parts are also easy to rust corrosion. Therefore, experts have warned that thunderstorms must pay attention to good dehumidification work, better dehumidification in advance.
If it rains when the vehicle is in use, turning on the cold, it can not only remove the fog, and dehumidification functions. The rain stopped as soon as possible to get rid of accumulated moisture, or prone to mildew and so on. Owners can find a cool place, all the doors and trunk lid open, so that the moisture inside the car exhaust, ventilation, and then the car floor mats, seat covers removed, rinse dry.
In addition, experts also told the two of us can be more thorough, more easily dehumidifier tips: dehumidifier in the car put a simple box, you can prevent car parts damp; relatively simple, inexpensive method is put inside a roll of toilet paper, also has some dehumidification effect.
Breeding ground for harmful bacteria four
Summer rain as the temperature and other factors, the car is easier to breed a variety of bacteria, regular disinfection of sterilization of the interior space is particularly important.
Experts tell us, disinfection sterilization should focus on the seat, air conditioning vent, in the control panel and around the corner, disinfection can be used when a professional auto interior cleaner, wipe with a dry cloth. However, when the center console to beware of cleaning detergent into CD, speakers, radios and other electrical equipment.
Impact of hazards five circuits, damage to the engine
Thunderstorms, car travel is still very likely to cause extinction wading. Cause extinction in three general situations: high-voltage sub-circuit electrical system moisture or water; exhaust water; inlet air filter that water.
Experts advise that once found wading driving the engine stalled, the ignition will not start again, otherwise the engine can easily result in scrap. The correct way is to immediately call the rescue call, or report to the insurance company, waiting for rescue vehicles to turn off the car towed to workshop for repair.
Also, check the brake system is also very important. As the braking system has a very strong adhesive force, water can easily enter the brake fluid, it will affect the braking effect, may cause severe brake failure. After wading recommend light step on the brakes several times, the infiltration of water out of the brake system. If you find the brake, or abnormal, can go to a professional repair shop check to prevent future trouble.
Endanger six damaged headlight
Rain water easily lead to headlights. After the brightness of the headlights will be affected by water, more water may also damage the headlight, then, that the irradiation direction of the lights changed to road safety and security.
If you find that there are headlights mist, you can open and the high beam headlights are turned on, to see ten minutes later the fog lights are gradually disappearing, an hour later it disappeared completely disappear do not worry, if it is a mist, it is necessary to deal with a professional after-sales service station.
