Staying safe behind the wheel is the most important part of driving, and your vehicle’s brake system is critical to your safety.

A vehicle’s brake system is composed of a variety of components including brake pads, drums, cylinders and rotors. All these parts endure a natural amount of wear-and-tear over time. As the miles tick upward, brake components will eventually need maintenance or replacement. That is where the unbeatable brake services from Alta Mere Milex of Boonsboro come in.

Taking the time to get regular maintenance can often prevent the need for more complex brake service. For example, when brake pads become too thin, they can damage the rotors or drums which in turn can warp or crack and cause complete brake failure. When you bring your vehicle into our Boonsboro store, our road-ready performance check will inspect your brake system for any issues and pinpoint any maintenance or repair needs.

FAQs About Brake Repair Services

How can you prevent damage to your brake system?

Each component within the brake system needs service at some time. It is likely the brake pads will need replacing when they become too thin. If pads are not replaced and wear away too much they can damage the rotors or drums. Damaged rotors or drums can warp or crack and cause complete brake failure. Keeping up with brake pad maintenance can help keep you safe and prevent more costly repairs.

When should you service your brake system?

If you notice poor braking performance you should bring your vehicle in for a brake system inspection. Also consult your owners manual to find at what mileage the brake system should be serviced. Have your brakes inspected at every oil change.

How do you prevent brakes from wearing out quickly

Several factors besides consistent maintenance can affect how long your brakes last. Driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and quality of brake lining material can all factor into the longevity of your brakes.
