That yellow pollen sitting on your car may be a bother to you, but as you can imagine, it's a relief to the car wash company.

The cars are lining up, and the sales are ringing up.

It’s that time of the year where the pollen outside reeks havoc on your cars.

"Mine is in there about four or five times a week. It's gotta’ stay clean," says Brandon Willis.

Willis works at Blue Water Express Wash in Dothan.

He says what you may call a problem in the air, is a great thing for business. "We look forward to it. We look forward to the car count."

It’s the quick car washes that really benefit from the increased pollen.

In just a matter of minutes, you pull in, pay, drive through, wash and you are on your way.

Workers say it's important to get pollen off your vehicle.

"If you don't wash that off in a weekly to a bi-weekly basis, it's going to start messing up the clear coat. It's going to start eating the paint over time. You may not see it now, but if you have a nice car, a brand-new car, three years down the road and you're not taking care of it, then you'll start noticing the clear coat coming off and the paint chipping. When you take care of it, and you wax it like you're suppose to, then it's going to look nice throughout," explains Willis.

And, less than five minutes later, you have a washed car that's ready to face the road.
