Here are few Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Car Feeling Like New:
Summer dust and sand, winter mud and salt, fall leaves and spring dust and pollen… It seems like your car will never catch a break from all the things that make your car dirty and you angrier and angrier. If you’ve ever wondered how to keep your car clean without going to the car wash on a weekly basis, here are some tips and tricks that will help you maintain the quality of your car and to keep it clean.
- Vacuum Regularly
The number one villain keeping your car dirty is the dust that settles on the inside and accumulates on the mats, floors, interior panes, seats and even windows. Remember to get into the air vents as well! This will prevent future dust accumulation. Vacuuming your car regularly, at least once every few months, will prevent that annoying layer of dust from settling on the inside of your car.
- Don’t Keep that Trash!
When you allow yourself or your family leave that chocolate wrapper in the pocket, or drop that napkin on the floor, you are dooming your car to dirt. Get rid of the trash which accumulates in your car regularly, and if possible, as soon as it comes into the car.
- Wash the Seats and Upholstery
Whether or not you want to hire a professional to detail your car for you or not, it’s recommended to wash your seats and upholstery at least once a year to prevent smells and the growth of bacteria. If you have leather upholstery, remember to purchase a cleaner specifically designed for leather to wash it.
- Wash Your Own Windows
While it’s tempting to use those squeegees at gas stations, it’s usually a much better idea to clean your own windows, using a soft, lint free cloth, and cleaning fluid specifically designed for window washing. This will prevent streaks, bacteria build up and layers of grease on both the inside and outside of your windows.
- Detailing is Not Just for The Rich and Famous
With detailing services becoming more and more affordable, perhaps looking into hiring a company that will thoroughly clean every nook of cranny of your vehicle is a good idea. A professional company will ensure that every inch of your car is spotless, and will reduce the amount of cleaning you will have to do in the future for a long while.
- Steam Clean for the Better Wash
While a regular car wash service is overall more affordable, steam cleaning is the more environmentally responsible and better lasting option. Steam cleaning your car will ensure that the layer of dust, salt and dirt that is on the outside of your car is completely removed, and will leave your car spotless and shining like brand new. Steam cleaning the inside and outside of your car every once in a while is a great way to effectively keep your vehicle sparkling top to bottom.
