2010 Honda Accord Will a snowbrush scratch the paint on my

2010 Honda Accord

I have a brand new 2010 Honda Accord Coupe. I treat it like a baby. I dont have a garage to park in so it has to be outside. We are having a big snow storm and I purposely went out to shovel and clean off my car before the landscapers came to shovel. I clean my car off with my gloves. I DO NOT use a snow brush because I'm afraid it may scratch the paint. So I fell asleep and then woke up to the landscapers already in my driveway shoveling! I started to hurry outside to take the snow off my car again, AND they said they took it off already! NOW, I know that they wouldnt just use their hands like me. They had to use a brush! I couldnt ask cause then they would think Im nuts. But I will never know what they used to take the snow off with, since I never saw them do it. There was only about 2 inches of soft wet snow on it. I'm worried that not only will the whole car be scratched, but I'm worried that the hood will be all scratched. My car is silver. But still, if there are scratches, I know they will still be visible because I will be looking for them after the car is all washed. IF they used a brush, do you think they will have scratched the paint? The thing is, I wouldnt know what kind of brush they used, if they did use it.

Thank you for your help!

YOUR hand burshing is going to do more damage then the brush. Think of your baby with dust on it, and you use your hand to brush it off. What your doing is scraching with all the little dust. Brushing with a clean snow brush will take the snow off and before it scraches your car the bursh will bend or wear because your car clear sureface is a lot harder then the brush. This is way there is a clear coat on your car, cuze paint is softer. And car snow brush is made with this in mind. Hand brushing is the worst way to get the snow off. Hope this helps.
