The leaves are changing colors, there is a crispness in the air, everything for some reason is pumpkin spiced, and professional football is in full swing; this can only mean one thing: it’s officially fall
The list of why autumn is awesome is virtually endless. However, there is one unfortunately, not-so-awesome reality: winter is right around the corner.
Winter is brutal on your vehicle. Between the perpetual salt bombardment and the excessive levels of moisture, it’s the perfect corrosion cocktail. The best way to keep your vehicle safe from winter rust is by taking advantage of the fall season to prepare.
Stop Rust Before It Starts
The majority of modern drivers erroneously believe that modern cars don’t rust. But this simply isn’t true. Wherever there is oxygen, steel, and moisture, corrosion will happen; it’s only a matter of time. The absolute best way to prevent corrosion (besides climate controlled storage and not driving) is bringing your vehicle to Ziebart for our tried and true Rust Protection service. We’ve been protecting vehicles from rust damage for over 55 years; nobody’s done it longer, nobody does it better. Period.
Our professionally trained technicians will apply our exclusive chemicals under your car or truck and in the places we know rust will accumulate. These chemicals will essentially insulate your vehicle from the harm salt and water accumulation can cause.
If your vehicle has already undergone a rust protection service, remember to bring your vehicle in for annual inspections. This is the best (and most cost effective) way to catch problems before they start.
Lock In That Glossy shine
Winter won’t reserve its harshness solely on your vehicle’s steel, the paint will also suffer winter’s wrath. Do you ever notice how your vehicle’s paint looks dull during and after winter? This dullness is caused by microscopic imperfections in the clear coat collecting salt and road grime.
We here at Ziebart have discovered how to stop the winter weather from dulling your vehicle’s shine: Diamond Gloss® Paint Protection, a paint coating tougher than winter. Our technicians prep your vehicle’s exterior surfaces with clay, removing imperfections and leaving the surface unbelievably smooth. Next they will use a hi-speed polishing process that will bring out your vehicle’s radiant shine. Finally they will apply our patented Diamond Gloss® to lock in this shine and keep your paint looking stunning throughout the winter months.
Get A Flu Shot
The CDC recommends getting your flu shots during October, since October is the “unofficial start” of flu season. We also recommend keeping your family and yourself protected by getting a flu shot for your vehicle with Ziebart Germ Defender®.
You’d be surprised at how much harmful bacteria lives inside your vehicle. Germ Defender® powered by Bioshield 75 is an anti-microbial, microscopic bed of nails that punctures the cell membrane in bacteria killing it instantly and keeping your surfaces germ free for up to 90 days.
We encourage you to enjoy the fall season to the fullest. However, we would be remiss if we didn’t remind you to also use this time wisely. A little bit of fall preparation can go a long way in keeping your vehicle looking great all winter long! Contact your local Ziebart today!
