Spring means warmer weather, longer days, and taking care of some spring cleaning at home. Don’t forget to give some attention to your car, though! In fact, now is the perfect time of year to perform some routine maintenance, so follow these easy tips and tackle spring cleaning your car like a pro.
Wash and wax
Let’s face it: driving a car that looks fresh and new just feels better. Keeping your car’s exterior clean isn’t all about looks, though. It’s important to wash off any corrosive buildup that is common during the winter months and then to add a protective layer of wax. Doing so can prevent rust and other damages to the exterior of your vehicle.
We tend to use the windshield wipers a lot over the winter, so it is usually a good idea to check how they’re doing come Springtime. If your car’s wiper blades or bent, cracked or otherwise damaged, go ahead and replace them now.
Check under the hood
Don’t neglect under the hood! It is common for debris and grime to accumulate under the hood around the engine. A quick clean with a special cleaner can ensure your engine stays in good shape so nothing gets blocked or potentially damaged.
