The winter is tough on everyone and everything, including our cars. This spring, extend your spring cleaning routine to your vehicle, washing it down and making it shine for the warmer months. Since spring cleaning is typically the time we do a thorough cleaning rather than just a cursory one, devote the extra time to cleaning up your car in a way that will make it feel luxuriously new. Here are some cleaning tips for your car that we recommend.
When the temperature is high enough that you want to spend afternoon outdoors, listen to your favorite tunes as you take the time to thoroughly wash down the exterior of your car after the winter wear-and-tear. Wash off winter’s dirt, salt, and grime, and shine the windows so they look like new. Maybe even polish and wax your car’s finish. You should also check your windshield wiper blades to make sure they’re still in good shape and ready for spring rainfall.
Deep clean interior:
After months of keeping the windows up and letting a bit of trash accumulate on your car’s floor, take the time to deep clean the interior’s carpet and upholstery. Use a vacuum or carpet cleaning machine on both the floor and seats, wipe down the dash and console, and add an air freshener of your favorite scent. Additionally, remove any winter weather accessories and store them away for the warmer months.
If your vehicle requires extensive service to prepare for the spring season, bring it on down to Harvey’s GM, where we are happy to help.
