How to prevent road rust and salt damage on your car and tires in Calgary

We had our first snow fall and just as fast as it came, it went away. City of Calgary crews have assured us that with every snow fall, they are ready to improve our roads and do what they need to with ploughing and sanding to keep roads cleared and safe. Salt lowers water’s freezing point and sand helps provide traction and keep the salt in place, making our roads easier to drive on. However, the flip side of that coin is all that salt and sand application is damaging to our cars. So, how do you prevent road rust and salt damage on your car? Is salt bad for tires? Read on for TireForce’s tips on what you should do to help your tires this winter and minimize the corrosive nature of salt and sand. Wash your car often-it is important to wash your car often enough in the winter, to remove any accumulations of salt which will make your car rust. Giving your car a rinse every couple of weeks will help minimize damage and given the temperatures drop into the evening and night, be sure to wash your car early on in the day, to minimize and prevent any freezing. Be sure to rinse the undercarriage of your car and around your tires too. Salt and other road chemicals will find themselves in between the tire and the wheel and if not rinsed away, will start eating away at the sealant. Brush snow off-before you park your car in your garage or parkade at night, be sure to brush off any snow. When moisture and oxygen combine on metal, rush will form. If you don’t remove as much snow and moisture as you can, you are allowing moisture to do its thing on your cars. When rust forms on your car’s body, on your undercarriage, or tire axle’s, this quick can become an expensive and dangerous problem. Wax your car before winter-TireForce offers mobile car detailing services in Calgary where we come to your location to professionally clean the inside and/or outside of your car. Before winter really hits, getting your car cleaned and waxed is an excellent preventative measure for your car. A good quality winter wax will protect the body of your car, and also make it much easier for salt and grime to be washed off throughout the season.
