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.

  • 5 star review  I cannot say enough good things about Nathan’s Auto Detailing! It’s a high quality, highly professional business yet has the nicest of individuals working as a collective team to deliver the best results possible. Having bought a new Model Tesla 3, I made arrangements with Nathan’s before taking delivery of the vehicle. They were patient enough to describe all of the service options, pricing, and even made arrangements for my drop off. During every step of the process, team members stated in touch to keep me updated and address my questions. I couldn’t be happier with the results from the three services completed: PPF, ceramic coating, and window tinting. Thank you Nathan and team for making my new vehicle even more stellar!

  • 5 star review  I am ecstatic with the service provided. My car was covered with dog fur and mud/dirt from all of the outdoor activities my dog and I have been doing throughout the fall and winter and Mark worked diligently for hours to make sure my car looked like new. I would definitely recommend to anybody looking for reliable and professional service.

  • 5 star review  I am stunned by how well my car turned out. We have used Nathan's before for my wife's car, and it always looked great, but I don't think I realized how thorough and professional they really are. The car looks better than it did when I bought it! From showing up on time to communicating well to making sure I understood everything they had done, the service was exactly as advertised and then some. Great job all around!
