Professional repair, professional maintenance and everything professional in general is always better than done on your own, outside of any specialized conditions. The same rule refers to the anticorrosive treatment of the car body. In a car, wheel arches and underneath sills, bottom and bottom elements of doors may rust quickest. Hidden areas of bodywork elements are just as likely to rust. If there is too much rust, it is easier to contact a company that accepts scrap for cash.
Professional body anti-corrosion treatment is the most effective step to stop the development of rust. And even if the corrosion has already started little by little to destroy the car metal, it can be stopped. But garage activities – self-treatment of the car in order to save money – do not turn out to be the success that awaits you after professionally carried out activities.
Understand, finally – it’s not about the part of the car that can be replaced, it’s about your entire car that you will lose. Unless you go to a professional body shop for a quality anti-corrosion treatment. Yes, body replacement is done in certain cases, but it makes little sense – it’s easier to buy a new car.
Why professional anti-corrosion treatment of the car is better, you will understand now:
In a car repair shop, workers are armed with the right equipment – compressors, heat guns, grinders, a variety of nozzles, spray guns and other devices that allow you to process all the hard-to-reach places of the car’s underside and body. The car is standing on the elevator, and the specialists work on the underbody with the proper lighting and in relatively comfortable positions. After the work, the car is sent to the drying chamber. Is this equipment available in your garage?
You will buy products from the store for self-treatment. They work only superficially, and let everyone extol them. There are inhibitors in such substances, which can only temporarily slow down the corrosion process or prevent its beginning. Meanwhile, cars with absolute absence of rust practically do not exist. There are special means in car service – these are bitumen, wax, paraffin mixtures, liquid plastic and special kind of mastics. But the main thing is that the specialists know, what material to use for processing in the concrete case of car damage.
If you can still get special means, where to get the experience and equipment? You do not know the TECHNOLOGY, and by default it dooms you poor or no results of treatment. And masters work in stages.
The car is washed and dried, then everything that needs to be treated is examined. Then the specialists remove the traces of corrosion and remove defects of treated surface – cracks, paint delaminations, etc. The degreasing of the surface is a must, otherwise the layer of the anticorrosive protective composition will not adhere to the metal. Only after these procedures, the workers begin to process the car.
As you can see, car owners are not able to make adequate rust-preventive treatment by themselves. Professional works cost quite a lot, but they are worth it – you prolong your car’s life!
