I thing you'll be okay. It's just a week or two, and modern coating techniques are well equipped to handle that. I find that neglected cars start to show corrosion first on fasteners: nuts and bolts. Look at the bolt heads that hold the front subframe to the chassis. They should be free of surface rust and discoloration. If they are turning brown, you should be cleaning your car more often.
