Navigating Road Salt

Road salt never leaves your car looking pretty, but it does an important job in lowering the freezing point of water and snow on the road. Preparing to deal with road salt can help you avoid the stress and expense of repairing a damaged mechanical part from corrosion.

The best preventative measure you can take is to wax and seal your car before winter. Do this in other months for some extra protection in keeping your paint clear. Even if you have your car waxed, road salt can remove the clear layer on your paint job if left to sit for long periods. It is crucial that you wash your car whenever the temperature gets above freezing. Do not attempt to wash your car in sub-freezing temperatures.
