When the zinc is all gone, that's when the rust really happens. You can remove rust from galvanized steel, but you will need to repair the rusted areas to prevent the rust from simply returning when the metal is exposed to moisture again.

The underlying steel resists rust and mineral deposits, but still requires regular cleaning and proper care. Learning how to clean galvanized metal is one of the most accessible home improvement techniques that can help the material look better and last longer.
