With winter conditions the city puts salt on the road to melt the snow and make driving safer. According to www.premereautodetail.com, this salt can have harmful effects on your vehicle’s paint.

Salt is corrosive, this means that it can eat through your paint over time. If left unattended, salt could lead to paint damage and rust on your undercarriage over time. You should also know that salt and warm temperatures do not go well together. Yes, salt is bad for your vehicle. If you park your car in a warm garage and the ice on it melts, you are at higher risk that salt is going to damage your car. Rust forms when moisture and oxygen combine on metal and salt accelerates that process because it corrodes,” according to www.premereautodetail.com.

There are ways around this to keep your cars paint looking nice and fresh.

“You have to wash your car at least once a week, you could also just be careful with where you choose to drive and avoid the salt,” Junior Kason Webster said.

If your car already has minor damage there are ways to fix the corroded area.

“You have to wash your car and then buff it at three different stages and then you have to wax it. Once you’ve done that you have to wash it again to get all of the buffing compound off. After that you just have to keep it clean,” Junior Gage Halford said.
