Paint Overspray Removal

What is car auto paint overspray?

Overspray comes in the form of paint and varnish from drifting paint that falls from marine, commercial, and residential paint projects, and even road construction and striping. The airborne paint drifts onto unintended places… like your vehicle. This isn’t really unusual – an estimated 200,000+ cars get oversprayed per year in the United States alone.

Overspray is commonly unnoticed due to low visibility – it’s virtually invisible – but can damage your vehicle’s paint over time. You can feel it by running your hands quickly over the hood or roof of your car. If you hear or feel an abrasive scratchy sound when you run your windshield wipers, this is a good indicator that you have overspray on your car as well. This causes wiper blade damage, and reduces visibility! 

Unlike dust or dirt, overspray cannot be washed off. Attempting to remove with solvents, rubbing compounds or scraping, inevitably causes further damage to your car’s paint finish. When overspray occurs, it can end up adding an unwanted paint job to cars and buildings in the area. The contractors then have to pay for the damage repair or take it out of their insurance policy. Most insurance policies require a deductible be paid for such a disaster. Deductibles in overspray situations can range from $250 to $2,000 per vehicle.
