Let’s talk about one of the worst nightmares a driver can have: rust. Rust usually occurs after the metal of the car becomes oxidized from continued exposure to moisture. Fortunately, there are several easy steps you can take to avoid rust forming in the first place. Here are some of our recommendations to keep rust from cramping your ride.
Wash Your Car
Cars caked in dirt get rusty faster. Washing your car every couple of weeks is a great schedule to keep your car sparkly clean and rust-free. Car washes not only get off the dirt and grime but also salt. Salt is a great contributor to rust. When you live by the beach or the icy roads are salted, you may want to increase your cleaning schedule to once every week. Take your vehicle to the car wash or try it at home. If it’s your first time washing your car, don’t stress! We have the best places to highlight when washing your car HERE.
Use An Anti-Rust Spray
Many sprays work to prevent the rust from forming and spreading if you already see some on your car. Keep an eye out for bubbling paint, a warning sign that rust is starting. Clean and dry the area you want to protect and treat, then spray. This type of protection can protect your car for about a year. Try this BOESHIELD spray that can be used on paint, metal, plastic, and vinyl.
Choose Ceramic Pro
If you want fuller protection that lasts several years, choose a durable treatment. Ceramic Pro is a liquid nano-ceramic coating that gives permanent protection with a multi-layered flexible glass shield. This treatment lasts up to 3 years and can give you peace of mind as you continue to drive your car through the seasons. Our location in Grovetown, Georgia, offers this service.
