Protection of the car against corrosion
Using the most advanced technologies and ways of protection against corrosion, the HYUNDAI firm makes quality cars. However, ensuring long-term protection against corrosion of the car of HYUNDAI, needs also your help and assistance.
Usual reasons of corrosion
The most usual reasons of emergence of corrosion on your car it:
– road salt, dirt and the moisture collecting under the bottom of the car;
– chips of paint or sheetings stones, gravel, insignificant chips and the dents leaving unprotected metal under the influence of corrosion.
Moisture generates corrosion
Moisture creates conditions for the most intensive emergence of corrosion. For example, emergence of corrosion is considerably accelerated at high humidity, especially at temperature of freezing of water. In such conditions, korrozionno active materials contact to car surfaces through badly evaporating moisture. Dirt is a typical reason of corrosion because it slowly dries and promotes contact of moisture to the car. Even if dirt seems dry, it can still contain moisture and promote emergence of corrosion. High temperatures too can promote emergence of corrosion of badly ventilated parts of the car on which moisture can settle. For these reasons, it is very important to keep the car clean from dirt and accumulation of other materials. It belongs not only to visible sites, but also to the car bottom.
In winter time douse a water stream the car bottom at least once a month and carefully wash out it after the termination of the winter period.
At a sink of the bottom of the car pay special attention to details under wings and other details hidden from eyes. Do work carefully. The simple sink, instead of careful purification of the collected dirt can accelerate rather emergence of corrosion, than prevent its emergence. Water under pressure and steam are rather effective at removal of the collected dirt and korrozionno active materials.
When cleaning the bottom panels of doors, amplifiers and details of a frame watch that drainage openings were open that moisture could evaporate and did not accumulate inside, accelerating emergence of corrosion.
On a paint and varnish covering it is necessary to cover scratches or chips with restoring paint as soon as possible for reduction of risk of possible emergence of corrosion.
Moisture can gather under floor rugs and a carpet and to cause emergence of corrosion. Periodically check lack of moisture under floor rugs and a carpet.
Sink and drawing of wax paste
The wash of the car when its surface is heated up by sunshine, is inadmissible. Always wash your car in a shadow.
Wash your car as it is possible more often. Dirt is an abrasive material and can scratch the car if it not to wash away. The polluted air or an acid rain can damage a paint and varnish covering during chemical reaction if to leave their rest to contact to a car surface. During winter time or after driving on the dirty wet road, carefully wash out the car bottom. To remove imposings of dirt and korrozionno active materials use a strong stream of water. Use high-quality solution for a wash of the car and follow instructions of his manufacturer on packing. Do not use strong household cleaners, gasoline, solvents and abrasive cleaners as it can damage a paint and varnish covering of the car.
Use a pure sponge or a fabric, often moistening it, and do not damage a paint and varnish covering too strong friction. If dirt dried, carefully moisten and accurately remove it.
For a sink of wheels use a soft brush or the rag moistened in neutral washing solution from rough wool.
For cleaning of plastic wheel caps use a pure sponge or a soft fabric and water.
Wash aluminum rims with weak neutral washing solution or neutral detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaners. Protect unprotected metal surfaces by a sink, polishings and drawings of wax paste. As aluminum is subject to corrosion, pay to aluminum rims in the winter special attention. After driving on the roads covered with salt, carefully wash such rims.
After a wash of the car carefully it wipe. After drying, soap water leaves stains on paint.
At warm weather and low humidity, probably, it is required to wipe at once each detail of the car after a sink not to leave stains on paint.
At detection of dents or scratches on a paint and varnish covering, cover them with repair paint to prevent emergence of corrosion.
Cleaning of spots
Do not use gasoline, strong solutions or korrozionno active cleaning means. It can damage a paint and varnish covering. For removal of road tar use the pure soft fabric moistened with turpentine.
For removal of the remains of insects or juice of trees use warm water and weak neutral washing solution or solution for a car wash. Moisten a sponge and slightly rub. If the covering lost the shine, use a polyrole available on sale for cars.
Polishing and drawing of wax paste
Before application полироля and wax paste surely wash up and dry up the car.
Use only high-quality means which are available on sale, and follow instructions of the manufacturer on packing. Polish and put wax paste, both on a paint and varnish covering, and on brilliant facing.
Repeated drawing of wax paste
Repeated polishing and drawing of wax paste should be made, when water any more does not form a drop and rolls down on a pure surface, and spreads on the big area.
Care of bumpers
For care of bumpers of your car of HYUNDAI it is necessary to observe some precautionary measures:
Be accurate, do not allow electrolit hit for the storage battery or brake liquid on bumpers. If it occurred, immediately wash up the car pure water.
Be accurate when cleaning surfaces of a bumper. They are made of soft plastic and their surface can be damaged at maloperation. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Use warm water and weak neutral washing solution or solution for a car wash.
Do not subject bumpers to influence of high temperatures. For example, when painting car in the high-temperature drying chamber, surely remove bumpers from the car.
Cleaning of a vinyl upholstery
For cleaning of a vinyl upholstery at first remove crumbs and a dust by means of the vacuum cleaner. Then use solution of neutral detergent in warm water, using a pure sponge or a soft fabric. If on an upholstery still there were spots, repeat operations while they it will not be cleared. Do not use gasoline, solvent for paint and other strong cleaners.
Upholstery cleaning from a genuine leather
During normal operation the upholstery from a genuine leather, as well as other materials, will collect a dust and dirt. They are necessary for cleaning, as they can eat into skin and cause its damage.
Behind thin skin it is necessary to watch and clean, if it is necessary. The careful washing of skin with soap will make water skin brilliant, and it will serve very long. Process leather a suede fabric, using neutral detergent and warm water. Carefully wash up skin, wipe it dry a damp fabric and then dry up by means of a dry fabric. Do it as it is possible more often that skin was not salted.
At a dressing, in skin enough of oils is added, and there is no need of addition of oil on skin in its operation. Oil addition on a surface of skin will not bring any advantage and can even do much harm. Use of cleaners for carpets and a polyrole just for decoration is not allowed.
Cleaning of carpets
Use foaming cleaners for carpets. Cleaners of this kind can be made in aerosol packings, in the form of liquid or a powder. Read instructions on packing and follow of.
Use the vacuum cleaner for removal as it is possible bigger amount of dirt. Put a foaming cleaner, following instructions of the manufacturer, and then erase roundabouts. Do not add water. Such cleaners are most effective when drawing on a dry carpet.
Cleaning of seat belts
For cleaning of seat belts, use a fabric or a sponge moistened in neutral detergent with warm water. Do not use strong cleaners, a bleach or abrasive cleaners as it can weaken a material of a tape of a seat belt.
When cleaning belts, check them on lack of excessive wear, a razlokhmachivaniye or other signs of damage and replace them if necessary.
Sink of glasses
For a sink of glasses it is possible to use any household means for glasses. However, at a sink of inside of back glass, be accurate, do not damage heating wires of a heater of back glass.
