surface rust on bottom of car

I just recently purchased a new car and noticed underneath the previous owner bottomed out alittle on the bottom of the car and scraped the paint and it has some surface rust on it. Can i just wire wheel the rust away and put some ruberized under coating on it to stop it from spreading. Will this be good enough or should I do something else to it as well?
