Salt Water Damage, how can it be treated?

Kiwis love the outdoors, our country has an amazing outdoor culture, from snowboarding and skiing to hunting and fishing.  As an island surrounded by water we especially love it. Swimming, fishing, boating etc.

But unfortunately with water comes problems.  One of these is Salt Water Damage.  Whether it is to our homes by the sea or our boats or even our cars we get affected by it.  So let’s discus it.

What is salt water damage?


Salt water is corrosive; it affects every surface by eating into it.  It can even penetrate and break down concrete.  It etches into surfaces, especially glass where it causes unsightly damage.  It can even etch into stainless steel damaging the protective layer of it and causing it to rust.  Additionally, mould just loves salt water. It causes mould to grow easier than fresh water which of course can cause numerous health problems.  Yes, salt water causes a lot of damage which can be frustrating to boaties and seaside home owners as they see thier possessions being damaged.
