Is Salt Ruining the Exterior of Your Shore Home?
Updated: Feb 19, 2019
Learn how to control property damaging salt film from destroying your home
Most people dream of one day living by the ocean, but few think of the damage this environment can cause. If you live on or near coastal areas, chances are the exterior of your home, air conditioning unit and anything else containing metal will soon need an expensive overhaul or need to be prematurely replaced. Just like the ocean erodes the beachfront, ocean air erodes metal and other surfaces.
The combination of moisture, oxygen and salt, especially sodium chloride, damages metal worse than rust does. ... Saltwater corrodes metal five times faster than fresh water does and the salty, humid ocean air causes metal to corrode 10 times faster than air with normal humidity.
We have a secret weapon when it comes to removing salt film from shore homes. It's called Salt Away. The salt air around the exterior of your shore home can cause some serious damage.
Salt Away is a marine industry non toxic solution made to remove salt film from any surface. Originally made to clean and keep boats from corroding due to salt films. It cleans and protects equipment from the corrosive effects of salt water and salt air and leaves a protective film that guards against future corrosion
