Here’s a guide on how to prevent the bottom of your car from rusting to keep it looking its best and keep it safe!
Wash Your Car Before Fall & Spring
At the beginning of the spring and fall season, giving your car a proper wash on the entire exterior and interior is necessary. This clears the surface from any debris buildup trapped on the body and in the crevices and lets you spot any scratches or marks underneath. Early signs of rust are often as minimal as small scratches or chips. Cars are especially vulnerable in the springtime due to the moisture in the air and frequent temperature changes. The remaining grime from winter snow also triggers rust.
Check The Drain Plugs
The drain plugs on your car are prone to collecting leaves, excess dirt and other debris. This will build up in the drain plug which become blocked and allow the water to enter making the parts prone to rust. Make an effort to clean out the drain plugs. Your drain plugs are usually on the edges of the truck hood area truck or along the bottom of your car doors.
Clean Up Spills
Making sure your car is clean is not only great visually, but ultimately protects your car from future issues. Spills inside the car from beverages can lead to rust if it is not cleaned on time. Leaving a spill inside your car will guarantee rust. If a spill occurs, make sure you dry it thoroughly, instantly, to remove the moisture.
Always Avoid Puddles
Salt during the winter is harsh on the undercarriage of your car, and puddles are too! Puddle water is a combination of the grime on the road and dirty saltwater. When you drive through a puddle, it impacts the entire undercarriage of your car which will cause rust.
