Washing Cars After Winter Slush

Lincoln, NE-- As the weather warms up and the snow melts away, people are getting into their cars and getting them cleaned.

At Husker Car Wash on O street, business was booming. With more than 700 cars coming through the doors Thursday, and around 800 on Friday.

In the winter, when roads are slick and icy, the city salt the roads to keep drivers safe. Though, that safety brings another issue- rust. The chemicals poured on the roads stick to the car and causes it to affect the paint.

"It keeps a white residue that is harmful and corrosive to unprotected metal and you should remove it as soon as possible," said Bill Kasl, owner of Husker Car Wash.

The winters is when car wash businesses grow, "it helps compensate where it snows and we wash no cars, or when the weather forecast is poor and not washing as many cars. In our business it's peaks and valleys."
