Rust Stains on Equipment
One of the most common causes of equipment damage, breakage and malfunction is rust. This is true in general, but is especially true with gardening, farming and grounds maintenance equipment, because of its exposure to rain, humidity, chemicals, and plant materials. Save your hard-earned money by cleaning and protecting your personal or commercial equipment from oxidation damage caused by humidity in the air or moisture from weather, flooding, leaks, grass, leaves, and soils which can ruin expensive equipment and parts.
Causes of Equipment Rust
- Mud and organic matter left on garden maintenance equipment and tools
- Bicycles stored outdoors
- Moist grass left on mower blades and body
- Sawdust buildup on woodworking equipment
- Any equipment left out in the weather
When iron-containing metals are exposed to oxygen and moisture, a process called oxidation occurs. Oxidation causes rust to form. Because most equipment is made up of, or fastened with numerous metal parts, equipment is very vulnerable to rusting. Further complicating the problem, we often store our tools and equipment outside, or in moist environments, such as storage sheds and garages.
Preventing Rusty Equipment
If not prevented or removed, rust and corrosion can damage all types of tools, machinery and equipment including agricultural, automotive, aviation, electrical, marine, and sporting as well as commercial and industrial. Avoid costly repairs and replacement by following these rust prevention guidelines:
- Store your equipment indoors or where it is protected from the weather.
- Always thoroughly clean and dry equipment after each use.
- Professionally clean and maintain equipment that has hard-to-reach or intricate metal parts.
- Use moisture absorbers or dehumidifiers in equipment storage areas.
