Each spring you probably will do extensive cleaning in your home. But did you know that your car can benefit from spring cleaning as well? By doing spring cleaning for your vehicle, you can help keep it in the best condition possible. During the winter your vehicle will accumulate a build up of salt from driving, especially under your car. This is why it is important to wash underneath the car, where the buildup of salt could start to cause corrosion and rust. The salt can also cause corrosion to the exhaust and muffler system and the frame of your vehicle. As you wash your vehicle, it is recommended washing it from top to bottom. This will prevent dragging any dirt up on the vehicle and scratching the paint. You will want to remember to clean the bumpers and fenders last, since they will have the most grime and dirt.
Spring Cleaning inside your car
Another part of spring cleaning your car includes cleaning the interior. First remove any trash from the vehicle and vacuum the interior of it. By power washing the floor mats, you can help to remove any extra dirt, grime, and salt debris from winter. You can also use a microfiber cloth to cleaning the dash. Remember to use the correct cleaner for each surface. This includes leather cleaner for any leather trim, and glass cleaner for all the windows. To help avoid streaking, you can spray the cleaner directly into the cloth. Always remember to have a clear clean view out the windows and windshield.
After you are done cleaning your car, remember to follow up with regular maintenance inspections. Schedule an appointment so we can give your vehicle a bumper to bumper inspection. This is one of the best ways to check for any issues that might be starting to form. By bringing the vehicle in, you can help ensure it is operating at top performance and efficiency levels. It will also you to have an enjoyable ride this summer.
