Pollen: STUCK ON YOU

POLLEN ON CAR MIRROR - ATLANTA DETAIL SHOP

Spring is a wonderful time of year. It represents growth, a new beginning. With that growth comes pollen. The dreaded spores that spur new life.

Although pollen is in many sizes and colors. the yellow pine pollen is highly visible. It takes no mercy. Pine pollen covers everything: vehicles, streets, structures and more. Not only is it a pest outside, it makes a way indoors onto car interiors and home furnishings.

A common reaction is to do nothing and wait until pollen season blows over. Another would be to take your vehicle throw the tunnel wash on the unlimited wash plan. Both could a big mistake. 

First, pollen is sticky. Be it’s nature it will attach itself to anything that it contacts. To do nothing will add to the build up and a stronger bond. The pollen will become hard to remove. It will get into the cracks and crevices. The spores are not easy to remove from rubber.

Second, the tunnel wash may be causing more harm than good. Drive thru washes could see hundreds of cars a day. If poorly maintained, dirt and grime from previous washes attach to the cleaning fibers and rub onto your vehicle during cleaning. Although removing pollen, it could be scratching the paint. 

What is the Solution?

  • Apply paint protection to the vehicle: (wax, sealant, coating)
  • Rinse off the vehicle at least twice a week (Before driving)
  • Wipe interior surfaces with damp cloth 

Paint protection creates a barrier between the car paint and elements. Dirt and other particles will be easier to clean off the vehicle. After rinsing the car, it will air dry on the drive. These few steps will reduce the pollen build up and keep you sane.

Going Back to School

Reading to Class

Although never a student at Toney Elementary, Yasir of Red Clay Detailing had driven past the school countless times. He grew up in the area and at one time lived in the neighborhood shared with Toney.

This year, he set foot in the halls for the very first time. He joined over twenty five African American Men for Toney Elementary Read In.

Each year, Toney Elementary invites African American men from the community for its Read In. The event is held in observance of Black History Month. The invitation is open to men across Atlanta.

During the Read In, Yasir read to five different classrooms of varying grades. He visited Kindergarten, First, Third and Fifth Grade classes. He had three different books to accommodate the different ages.

During the visit, the Toney Elementary staff was very welcoming from the principal, teachers, and students. Each classroom greeted Yasir with a “Good Morning,” “Hello,” or “Welcome.” The students were attentive and engaging. They asked questions about the stories. Some students would predict what would happen next.
