Got bat droppings on your car? Don\'t fret just yet. While you can\'t stop it from wrecking your car\'s paintwork, you can limit the extent of its damage with safe bat droppings removal techniques and proper repair. Read these slides for more information.
The acid in bat poo can start to etch into a car’s paintwork within hours depending on the
acid level. Remove immediately with soapy water and a soft cloth rag if the poo is still in
a liquid form. If dry it is best to place a drenched soft cloth rag or microfibre on top for a
few minutes. Then carefully pinch the cloth inwards with your fingers and lift the
contents. Alternatively, use methylated spirits. Repeat the process until all is removed.
Don’t be tempted to scrub because dry particles will damage the paintwork further. If
etching has occurred a cut and polish may repair the damage. But if it is more serious, a
re spray may be the only solution. Act fast to save money and don’t forget a high quality
paint protection will buy you more time to save your paintwork.
