Protect your car paint from winter hazards
Don’t let winter take a tow on your vehicles’ paint
It’s winter time in Colorado! A season to celebrate and enjoy time with loved ones. Christmas is just around the corner, and everybody is thinking about the year-end activities. But along with such joy, come the snow and cold. We want to share some good advice to keep your car safe through the best season of the year!
Tips for protecting your car’s paint
Providing extra protection for your vehicle in the wintertime is vital to maintaining the paint intact. Snow and ice – and the scraping it takes to remove both of them – can be as rough on your car as they are on you.
Protect the paint from road salt: A quality wax or sealant combined with regular maintenance will get your paint finish through a cold winter.
Apply a polymer wax: Your car paint will thank you as the wax protects by creating a shield against salt and grime, as well as snow, sleet and rain.
Use paint sealant: As you use gloves to protect your hands from the cold, your vehicle could use a layer of protection, too. Use a paint sealant that tends to last longer and requires less frequent reapplications.
Wash your car: Washing can be a challenge in cold weather, but you definitively don’t want to leave road salt on your vehicle. Corrosion can be stopped by using specialized products such as DP Rinseless Wash & Gloss and DP Rinseless Wash & Gloss. If you can’t wash it yourself, treat it to stop at your local car wash at least once a month over winter.
Brush snow off the car gently: It is better to use a soft snow brush or a foam brush than hard plastic scrapers to clear away snow from your vehicle. Avoid hard plastic tools.
Applying a coating is the best way to protect your paint through the winter months. But, your paint isn’t all that is in peril in the coldest time of the year. Follow these tips, and check upcoming blogs, to avoid costly repairs. And if you get some scratches or paint damage you can always rely on Auto Rehab specialists in Denver.
