We have all seen the mysterious dumped car left on the side of the road rusting away. Nobody knows what happened to it.

Was it stolen, taken for a joyride and left to sit where it ran out of fuel?

Was it driven by its owner to the point where it gave up the desire to continue on and conked out?

Whatever the reason we are sure that the owner was unaware of scrap car removal services provided by local wrecking companies. If they knew about them they would know that all they need to do is call their local wrecker and they can get paid cash for their unwanted scrap car. Instead, the car is left to sit on the side of the road rusting away.

Apart from the fact that the owner has left money on the side of the road, they are also presenting the environment with a larger health issue. The issue of rust.

What is Rust?

Rust is what happens to a ferrous metal that is exposed to oxygen. Ferrous metal is any metal with iron in it. The most commonly known and used is steel which is heavily used in cars. When this ferrous metal is exposed to air the oxygen starts to react with the surface of the metal. This reaction is what is known as rust.

Is Rust Dangerous?

Rust itself is not overly dangerous to humans. However, bacteria can grow in rust and the most dangerous and commonly known is tetanus. That is why if you ever scratch yourself with a rusty nail or sheet metal, you need to get a tetanus booster. Without this tetanus vaccination, you can quickly die from tetanus. And there are still all the nay-sayers who say no to vaccinations. Rust isn’t killing me!

Rust also weakens the metal that it is rusting. It effectively deteriorates the metal so it breaks down over time. While this is a slow process it can over years create jiggered edges in the metal which can easily piece skin if you get too close to it. This is an easy way for you to gain the Tetanus bacteria in your blood which is very dangerous.

What Can You Do?

We can all play a part in preventing rust related health issues from removing any metal objects from outside. Metal objects that are always outside like your homes roof or your car are painted to protect the metal from being exposed to the air.

Other metal items such as stainless steel do not rust. Although you still might see surface rust on these metals. This can be easily removed. Rust however actually rust takes a bit more effort to remove. Normally grinding or cutting out the rust.

You can also spread the word and inform your friends about car removal services. If their car one day dies and they are thinking of leaving it on the side of the road inform that that doing so will create a rust health hazard.

You can also inform them about scrap car removal services and how they can even get paid cash for their car. Wreckers come to remove the car and pack you cash to take ownership so they can sell the spare parts and scrap metal. A bot of recycling and saving the community from dangerous rusting metal.
