Spring is finally here, and it's time for some much-needed cleaning. Winter can leave much dirt, grime, and debris, affecting your vehicle's appearance and performance. To help you get started on your spring vehicle cleaning, here are some tips from Pembroke Chrysler.
Wash the Exterior
The first step in spring vehicle cleaning is thoroughly washing your car's exterior. For the best results, use a high-pressure hose or pressure washer with a quality wash designed for vehicles. A sponge or mitt is also helpful, and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid leaving any soap residue.
Clean the Wheels and Tires
Winter can be tough on your car's wheels and tires, so it's important to give them extra attention during your spring vehicle cleaning. Use a wheel cleaner and a brush to clean the rims and remove built-up brake dust. Then, use a tire cleaner and a scrub brush to clean the tires and remove any dirt or grime. Remember to check the tire pressure and fill them up as needed.
Detail the Interior
Now that the outside of your car is clean, it's time to move on to the inside. Start by removing any clutter or garbage, then vacuum the interior thoroughly, including the seats and carpets. Use a mild cleaner and a microfiber cloth to clean the dashboard, door panels, and other surfaces. Finally, use a glass cleaner and a clean cloth to clean the windows and mirrors.
Check and Replace Filters
While you're cleaning your car, it's also a good idea to check and replace any filters that may be dirty or clogged. This includes the engine air filter and the cabin air filter. Dirty filters can affect your car's performance and fuel efficiency, so keeping them clean is important.
