How a Fresh Waxing Can Save Your Car This Winter

As fall leaves start to rain down from trees and evenings and mornings get colder and colder, one thing is for certain all over Ohio: winter is coming,  And while snow and the winter seasons can be fun for families and a blast for winter sports enthusiasts, for car owners, cold and wet weather tells a different story.  If you aren’t careful, a wet winter can severely damage your car, costing thousands of dollars worth of damages and leaving your vehicle exposed to future damages.

According there is a simple and reasonably priced preventative measure you can take to save your vehicle this winter season.  Here’s everything you need to know about how winter can severely damage automobiles, and how a fresh car waxing can spare you from thousands of dollars worth of damages.

Winter Weather:  A Perfect Storm for Auto Damages

During the winter months, most counties in Ohio and in all parts of the U.S. where it snows apply thick, coarse salt to all plowed roadways.  From a safety perspective, this is a good thing: salt lowers the freezing point of water, meaning that if there is lots of salt on a road, it’s less likely to be icy.  But from a car owner’s perspective, that safety comes at a cost.

As for your truck damages an accessories in winter its  necessary to maintain and buy the right products for winter. You can easily buy one of the Plenty of options for roll-on bed liners, but I found this list the most comprehensive, to be ready

In addition to lowering the freezing temperature of water, road salt also has a tendency to corrode the paint on cars.  When you drive on a road that has recently been salted, that salt will “splash” off the road and land on your paint.  And if not wiped off quickly, it will eat through your car’s finish and expose the metal beneath. You might also want to consider some auto glass repair in case the storm breaks your windshield.

Combine this with the cold, wet weather in an Ohio winter, and your car could be headed for disaster.  Once salt corrodes paint and removes the finish of your car, snow and rain can cause extensive damage to your car’s chassis by rusting the metal underneath.  In this way, it’s not one factor in winter that damages cars, but a perfect storm of factors working together.

The Simple Solution: Get a Wax!

Getting a fresh wax on your car cuts off these potential damages at the source, by making it hard or impossible for salt to corrode your paint.  By getting a fresh waxing, you are protecting the outer finish of your car from the corrosive effects of salt.  And in turn, this will protect the metal of your chassis from the rust and damage that snow and rain can bring.  A waxing will only cost you hundreds today, and save you thousands upon thousands in damages tomorrow.

  • I am due to have a baby in 2 weeks, and I wanted my CR-V detailed inside and out before the baby arrives. I appreciate the convenience of Nathan’s coming to my house to detail my car. I also appreciate the text reminders and communication. Scheduling on the phone was friendly, the men who came to detail the car were very professional and thorough.

  • I purchased a platinum interior car detailing. My car was covered in dog hair throughout. I tried to clean it myself but the hair was STUCK in the carpet. When my detailing was complete, my car looked brand new. It was worth every cent! I highly recommend Nathan's Detailing!

  • Nathan’s guys did a great job tinting the windows on my car. I dropped my car off the night before and I must say the car was in great hands. I had my front windows done at 35% and the back windows (back glass included) done at 20%. I must say, i am incredibly pleased with the job! It looks very professional and I would highly recommend Nathan’s Automotive Detailing for window tinting. They also did a “spruce up” on the interior AND exterior which was totally unexpected, but very much appreciated!! I thought it was very affordable and couldn’t be happier with the work! Thanks again Nathan!!

  • I have used Nathan's in the past for mobile detailing and their work has been superior in every way. I was very excited to hear that they were getting into window tinting as well as 3M clear bra installation. I have a 2019 Dodge Challenger and she is my baby but I had no concerns leaving her in the hands of Nathan's amazing team. After discussing the many options I went with a 50% window tent as well as the 3M clear bra. Nathan's team did a fantastic job!! I could not be happier with how she turned out! Another fantastic job Nathan's I wish I could give more stars!!
