Mild soap and warm water are usually used to wash off dirt from the surface of the nerf bars. It may sound too simple to work but it's enough to do the trick. Scrub off accumulated dirt with a sponge or a soft cloth, you can also use an old toothbrush to clean hard-to-reach areas for a better result. After you get rid of all the filth, make sure that you dry off the nerf bars to avoid water stains.
- Regularly wax or polish your nerf bars.
Whether your nerf bars are in powder coated black or polished stainless steel finish, a good coat of wax will help it resist the damaging effects brought by different harmful elements. Most manufacturers recommend that you make this a part of your routine maintenance to ensure that your nerf bars are kept protected and gleaming. It's an easy task that will benefit you in the long run. Simply dab a small amount of wax over a non-abrasive cloth and work it slowly into the surface of your nerf bars with small circular motions.
- Keep an eye out for signs of rust.
By now, you may already be aware that your vehicle's nerf bars are exposed to very harsh working conditions. They get covered with dirt, stepped on, or even bumped during a minor collision. All these factors are likely to damage your nerf bars' protective coating, making them more susceptible to rust and corrosion. To keep your nerf bars from weakening, make sure you tend to rust as soon as possible. You can start by cleaning damaged areas with a rust-dissolving solution. For cheaper alternatives, you can also use vinegar and soft aluminum foil. To reinforce their surface, repaint and wax the damaged areas after you completely get rid of rust.
