After Winter Weather, Helpful Brine Is Harmful To Your Car

A thorough professional car wash eliminates salt solution’s threat

Brine, the seemingly magical salt solution that local transportation departments apply to roads to help melt snow and ice, can be detrimental to vehicles by promoting rust on metal and deteriorating the paint surface. That’s why car maintenance professionals recommend a comprehensive cleaning soon after a winter weather event.

“Salt and brine do a good job keeping our roads in safe driving condition during a winter storm, but they have corrosive properties that can rust a car’s metal parts, especially the undercarriage, and break down the paint’s top coat,” offered Carl Howard, COO of Autobell® Car Wash, a car wash company with locations in five Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states, some hard hit by Winter Storm Diego.

“To help car owners maintain their asset after winter weather, we recommend a prompt, thorough cleaning, including an underbody wash, at a professional car wash that treats and recycles wash water. Also, salt and brine may stay on porous surfaces like roads and driveways for a while, so follow-up washes are important as well.”
