Protect Your Car from Salt Exposure

Salt melts snow and ice allowing cars to travel on roads. Salt corrosion, however, may cause unsightly damage to a vehicle. Paint fades away leaving terrible spots on a vehicle. Salt corrosion can also cause problems with a vehicle's brake lines, which presents dangerous safety hazards. If you live in a snowy region, take extra steps to protect a vehicle against road salt.

Cleaning off road salt from the car cuts down on the damage it can do to a car. Thoroughly wash any vehicle consistently exposed to salt a minimum of every ten days. Washing the car more frequently could be better. Cleaning the entire car including the undercarriage is critical.

Preventive steps such as waxing a car or having the undercarriage treated help matters. Proper driving also could curtail exposure to salt. You don't want to hit puddles that may be filled with it.
