220.127.116.11. Corrosion prevention
You can prevent emergence of corrosion. The best way of prevention of corrosion is the maintenance of the car in purity. It is very important to pay special attention to the car bottom.
If you live in the region (country) where your car regularly is exposed to influence of corrosion factors – where roads salt, near the sea, in regions with strong industrial pollution, acid rains, etc. – you should take special measures for corrosion prevention. During winter time douse a water stream the bottom of your car at least once a month and carefully wash out it after the termination of the winter period.
At a sink of the bottom of the car pay special attention to details under wings and other details hidden from eyes. Do work carefully. The simple sink, instead of careful purification of the collected dirt can accelerate rather emergence of corrosion, than prevent its emergence. Water under pressure and steam are rather effective at removal of the collected dirt and corrosion and active materials.
When cleaning the bottom panels of doors, amplifiers and details of a frame watch that drainage openings were free that moisture could evaporate and did not accumulate inside, accelerating emergence of corrosion.
Contain your garage the dry. Do not leave the car in damp, badly ventilated garage. It creates excellent conditions for corrosion. It also belongs to cases when you wash the car in garage or call in in garage on wet, the covered snow or dirt the car. Even the heated garage can promote emergence of corrosion if it is badly ventilated, and moisture does not evaporate.
Contain a paint and varnish covering and facings in a good condition. Scratches or chips on a paint and varnish covering are necessary for coating restoring as soon as possible for reduction of risk of possible emergence of corrosion. At detection of naked metal it is recommended to address in a painting workshop.
Do not forget about an interior. Moisture can gather under floor rugs and a carpet and to cause emergence of corrosion. Periodically check lack of moisture under floor rugs and a carpet. Be especially attentive, if you transport the fertilizers cleaning materials or chemicals in the car. Such materials are necessary for transporting in special containers and any drops or spots are necessary for washing away pure water and carefully to dry up.
