PowerPoint Presentation: Sun, Sand, and Rust 6 Tips to Prevent Vehicle Corrosion from Beach Living PowerPoint Presentation: There are endless reasons why anyone would want to live by the beach – rust, however, is usually not one of them. Beach living is notorious for the corrosive damage caused to cars from the salty air. Use these 6 tips to save you the embarrassment of cruising the beach in a rust bucket. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #1 Inspect Your Vehicle Make it a habit to regularly examine your car for possible damage. Pay extra close attention to the early signs of rust on metal parts and blisters or bubbles in the paint. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #2 Start With Prevention Before all else, spray your vehicle with an anti-corrosion wax. Preventing the rust from even beginning to form will save you ample amounts of time and money down the road. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #3 Give It A Good Wash Regularly washing your car will prevent the buildup of salts or chemicals from bodywork that can lead to rust. The dirtier your vehicle is, the more susceptible it is to corrosion. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #4 Car Cleaners Only Avoid washing your vehicle with anything other than products specifically designed for cleaning cars. Dishwasher soaps and laundry detergents can scratch or dull the paint. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #5 Keep It Covered The less direct exposure your car has to the salty air, the better. If you have a garage, definitely park your car in it. Otherwise, consider getting a car cover as a barrier. PowerPoint Presentation: Tip #6 Avoid Tailgating Pebbles and gravel flung up from vehicles in front of you can nick or dent the body of your car, which can make it more prone to corrosion. Avoid following too closely behind. PowerPoint Presentation: Learn about VALUGARD ’s full line of anti-rust products by visiting www.valugard.net . VALUGARD knows rust prevention.
