Protect Your Car from Corrosion with Our Underbody Wash with Rust Inhibitor

Winter in Colorado offers superb fun for all local or visiting snow sports lovers, framed in amazingly beautiful landscapes when the days are bright. However, there is a downside to the Colorado winters which can turn out to be very harsh, causing many road traffic problems and accidents if careful driving is not exercised.

road salt dangers for your vehicle

Because of the large quantities of snow that we can get during the season, road salts are used to try to keep deadly ice from building up on the streets. They are essential for safe winter driving, lowering the freezing point of water so the tires can still make contact with the pavement instead of sliding on ice.

However, despite all the good that road salts can do to keep us safer while driving in winter, your vehicle can’t say the same. They are the ones that take a huge toll if all the sloshy and highly corrosive residue is left to accumulate on the underside for a long time.

How Road Salts Can Damage Your Car, and How to Avoid It

The biggest threat that vehicles repeatedly exposed to road salts face is rust. That corrosion affects mostly the underbelly and can damage the car’s exhaust and muffler systems, coil springs, and even the frame of the vehicle.

So, while avoiding road salts entirely is tough – you would have to leave your car in the garage all winter – you can still counter its effects by visiting a car wash frequently to wash away the damaging elements before they can start to corrode.
