Protecting Your Car in Winter

Road salt is one of the many annoyances of having to drive your vehicle before, during or just after a snow storm. Although it is effective when it comes to keeping ice off the roads, road salt can put your car's exterior through the ringer and leave behind lasting damage to the paint and exposed metal parts.

Having your car waxed carefully before a winter weather event is a great way to keep road salt from sticking to the vehicle as easily. This top clear coat on your vehicle's exterior serves as a protective barrier against corrosion. Do not delay in cleaning the road salt off your car after you notice it. Leaving it on for too long can lead to chips in the paint, which exposes the metal of your car to rust.
