Why Is It Necessary to Fix Your Car Scratches to Avoid Rust?

Scratches on your car make your vehicle look older and can lead to rust and corrosion. The small scrapes and scratches in your paintwork from rocks or minor incidents are best repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent rust and further deterioration of your paintwork and to keep your car looking new.

Types of Rust

There are two types of rust. There is surface rust, which sits on the surface of your vehicle.

The second type of rust is corrosive rust, which spreads through the panel of your car and eats away at the body of your vehicle.

Rust can occur within a few days of the scratch occurring if it is deep. Shallower scratches may take longer to rust, but either type of rust is still certainly a risk!
