Rust and corrosion is a major concern for a lot of vehicle owners. Not only is rust an eyesore, it is also very damaging for your vehicle. Rust is caused by a mixture of iron, water, and oxygen. When these elements come together, the result is a chemical reaction that forms on the surface of the metal, causing it to crumble and break.

Rust prevention is so important for a vehicle, because the process of rusting and corrosion is not reversible. Once the damage is done, it is very difficult to treat. If attended to at an early enough stage, some restoration is possible. However, the very nature of rust is that it eats away at the metal. Obviously, one the metal is gone, it is gone for good.

Regular rustproofing, done by an automotive professional, is the most effective preventative measure you can take to protect your vehicle.

Rust Proofing Your Vehicle Before the Winter Season

Living in central Canada means that inevitably your vehicle is going to be exposed to extreme weather conditions. Baking heat and powerful sunrays in the summer, shifts to snow, ice, and salt on winter roads. This kind of constant vulnerability to harsh and diverse conditions can wreak havoc on an unprotected vehicle.

That is why the fall is an ideal time for rustproofing. Rustproofing provides an extra layer of protection on your vehicle’s exterior to ward off rust and corrosion.

Rust can literally destroy your vehicle. If salt from winter roads gets embedded into all the nooks, crannies, and crevasses of your vehicle, it sits there dormant until the warm weather arrives. Once the warmth of spring hits, this salt that has been lying in wait, can completely rust your vehicle from the inside out. This can be avoided with regular rust proofing.

Benefits of Rust Proofing

There are many advantages to be gained from consistent rust proofing services. Some of these benefits are:

  • Protects your vehicle
  • Preserves resale value
  • Safety
  • Gives your car a longer life
  • Reduces mechanic bills

Vehicle Protection

The most obvious, and arguably the most important advantage of rust proofing is the protection it gives your vehicle from harmful environmental elements. To get adequate protection you should have rust proofing applied at least once a year, in the autumn. For more comprehensive protection, you could have rust proofing done in the fall, and again in the spring.

Preserves Value

It likely comes as no surprise that a rust-free vehicle will hold more value for potential buyers, than a rusted-out car will. It is pretty much a guarantee that a vehicle of the same make, year, and model with no rust will sell more quickly and for a higher price, than the same one that is rusted.


Rust and corrosion will compromise the integrity of a vehicle’s structure if it is left to fester over time. High levels of corrosion can make a vehicle unsafe to drive for you and your passengers.

Longer Life

The mechanics and structure of your vehicle will last longer if you keep it rust-free with consistent rust proofing. The longer your vehicle lasts, means the longer you can save your money for your next automobile.

Minimizing Repair Costs

If rust and corrosion goes unchecked and untreated for long enough on your vehicle it can potentially spread to the electrical system and brakes, making it unsafe to operate.
