A little rust can turn an otherwise impeccable vehicle into an undesirable jalopy in no time. Ok, maybe "jalopy" is a bit rough, but nobody likes the look of a car full of rust. Not only is it visually unpleasant, it is also unhealthy for the car itself. Here are some things that every car owner needs to know about how to protect a car from rust.


Technically, oxidation is a layer of iron oxide reddish brown that is formed in iron or steel by oxidation, especially in the presence of moisture. In simple terms, oxidation is simply a visual sign of corrosion. This type of corrosion can profoundly
weaken the structure of a vehicle and make other parts of the vehicle completely useless until they are replaced.


Each car has the potential to experience rust in its life, but the three most common causes of the cut are location, weather and neglect. Here's what we mean.

1)  Location: - The closer you live to the ocean, the more likely it is that your car experiences the harmful effects of salt water. Salt water can be very corrosive to metal and therefore raises and / or accelerates the rust process.

2) Weather: - If you live in an environment where harsh winters and slippery roads require plenty of salt, your car is definitely heavier. Rust is usually formed on the vehicle's chassis first, so check and wash the area regularly. Rain can also cause your car to rust - especially if your vehicle is regularly left outdoors.

 3) Incorrect Care: - Although it is sometimes inevitable rust, it is also important to do what is right to protect your vehicle from these elements. Placing your car on regular washing and waxing routine may miss a long way to prevent rusting. As mentioned above, storing your car in a garage or at least out of direct sunlight and rain can help tremendously as well.


Here are six things to help you protect your car from rust.

           1) Keep your car clean! Get regular car wash and even explode with occasional bodily
           rinsing. This keeps the car body and lower surface clean of dirt.
2) The second most important thing you can do to prevent rust is popular mechanics. Check the drain holes on the bottom of doors and rocking panels to allow rainwater to flow. If necessary, use a pipe cleaner to drain them and keep the car's nicotine and crannies dry.

3)  Keeping the inside of the car is essential! Clean all splashes that may start inside the rust process.

4)   You can wash your car even more often if you live near the sea or if you experience severe winters with lots of salt on the roads. Salt is a great developer when it comes to rust in a vehicle.

5) Consider coating the vehicle with an anti-rust spray or anti-rust agent.

6)  Be hard-working. As soon as you see paint bubbles or blisters on your car paint, it means rust. Handle this aggressively to prevent the rust from getting worse and spreading.
