9 common causes of car scratches and paintwork damage

Nicks, marks and scratches on your car happen for a multitude of reasons – some avoidable, others less so. Sadly, scratches can obliterate your resale value and lead to problematic, and often expensive, rust issues so it’s better to get them sorted sooner rather than later.

The best way to stop damage occurring is to stay cautious of the primary culprits of paintwork damage. These include…

1. Weather
The weather is a big offender in this respect, particularly during the winter months when the roads are rife with grit. In coastal regions, you will need to be mindful of rainy weather, as precipitation can carry salt and leave challenging water stains. If you can, it’s better to keep your car covered. Unfortunately, you’re not safe in the sun either. Excessive rays can cause paintwork to fade and look worn. Try to keep your car in the shade when temperatures are soaring.

2. Bird droppings and dead bugs

Nope, this one’s not a joke. Ever wondered why it’s so damn hard to scrape bird droppings and dead bugs off your car? Their acidity causes them to fuse to, and eat away at, your paintwork. Whilst not at the top of the food chain, bugs and birds possess one thing that evolution has not yet granted us – flight. This basically gives them the opportunity to do whatever they want, wherever they want and the only way to stop it being a problem is to carry microfiber cloths everywhere.

3. Loose stones, rocks and pebbles
Braking distances aren’t the only reason to stay a good distance from the car in front. Road debris becomes a problem when it gets flicked up at breakneck speed from other cars, leaving big dings in your car. Pebble chips are not hard to spot. They are generally characterised by circular dents in your bumper, bonnet or side panels, although the sheer depth of them never seems to get any less surprising.

4. Construction sites

Construction sites are warzones for cars. Dust, wet concrete, nails and bricks are the weapons. If you care about your paintwork at all, do. not. leave your car near a construction site.

5. Hedges
This is a bigger risk if you live out in the sticks and your morning commute involves squeezing into tight laybys to let tractors past. Over time, the small branches and twigs will grate away at your paintwork, gradually causing it to lose its sheen. Unless you can find an alternative route or you’re happy to reverse all the way into a bigger spot, your best bet is to regularly buff your car and silently curse the existence of other drivers.

6. Abrasive cleaners and dirty cloths
Some people use general household soaps and detergents to clean their car, but this is something that should be avoided at all costs. Certain detergents will strip the protective paint sealant, exposing your car to the elements. Avoid washing your car with a dry or dirty cloth. Scratches from dust and dirt will defeat the object of cleaning your car in the first place and dry cloths have been known to cause friction damage.

7. The front bumper on pavements
Out of sight, out of mind, they say. Until we hear the agonising scrape of our bumper against a protruding pavement. It doesn’t matter whether you’re turning a corner or parking, poor spacial awareness gets the better of us all from time to time. Be conscious of those curbs, particularly where there’s a camber in the road.

8. Kids
Whether they’re your own, or complete strangers, kids are careless and equally ruthless in their attempts to conceal misdemeanours. If you’re a parent and you’re wondering why your once pristine car is littered in minor scratches, it’s likely down to bike handlebars or the markings of a wayward football. If possible, keep your car carefully concealed from your little ones. For more information on how to stop your kids making a mess of your interior, click here.

9. Other drivers
Most accidents happen in car parks when people misjudge their surroundings, either reversing into someone, opening their doors too quickly or scraping the sides of their car as they turn. Aside from parking in the furthest reaches of the car park, there’s little way to avoid the dangers posed by other cars. Plenty of newer dashcam models have a parking mode so if you do have the misfortune to be struck by someone, they won’t get away with scampering off.

Only in the darkness,you are able to see the star ✨ 💡



Park the car out of direct sunlight. This prevents premature drying which can leave splotches on the paint. Washing your car in direct sunlight also runs the risk of your car becoming hot while you wash it, which will result in water evaporating more quickly and making the cleaning process more difficult.

Check that all windows are closed and retract the antenna, in order to prevent water from getting inside the car or the antenna from being snapped off.
Pull the windshield wipers away from the windshield until they click into their propped position, away from the glass.

Set everything you will need near the car. This includes cleaning material: the car wash detergent that you will use for cleaning, a large supply of water (depending on the size of the vehicle), three buckets (two for washing, one for rinsing), a hose, and microfiber cloths or towels to dry your car.

You’ll also want to have two or three wash mitts on hand, plus a large sponge, a stiff scrubbing brush, and maybe a separate brush to scrub your tires with.
Be prepared to get wet and soapy. Wear the appropriate work clothes: shoes, shorts and rubber sandals when the weather permits, long pants and rubber boots when it is a bit chilly.

You can purchase car-specific detergent at your local auto parts store. When filling the two wash buckets with detergent, be careful to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations concerning the suggested water-to-detergent ratio.

Fill a bucket with water. Then add car wash soap in the quantity directed on its bottle. This will be your washing bucket. If your car is very dirty or if you’d like to have a washing bucket for the body of your car and a separate washing bucket for washing your car’s wheel wells, you can fill two buckets with water and soap.

Fill another bucket with plain water. This will be your rinsing bucket. You only need one bucket for rinsing, whether you’ve chosen to use one or two buckets for washing.

To be continued.....


The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them💡


Learn to value yourself, which means: fight for your happiness💡



Washing your car by hand can be a relaxing and satisfying activity. Washing your own car will save you the money that would otherwise be spent paying for a car wash, and allows you to give extra attention to especially dirty areas of your vehicle. Commercial car washes use abrasive materials that may scratch or damage your car’s paint, so washing your own car by hand will allow you to keep the vehicle and paint job in pristine condition. To wash your own car by hand, you’ll need a flat, shady patch of concrete, and access to plenty of water and a hose. You’ll need to wash your entire car in one session, which usually takes an hour or two depending on the size of your vehicle and how dirty it is.💡
