car spring cleaning

Spring cleaning is a time-honored tradition. While many will focus on cleaning their homes, we want to focus on cleaning your vehicle. It’s easy to take pride in your ride when it looks fantastic inside and out.    

Spring Clean Your Vehicle  

Here are a few areas of focus and tips for giving your vehicle a deep clean: 

The exterior of your car is what most people think of when they think of cleaning their car. There are a few extra things you can do to take cleaning the exterior of your vehicle to the next level. 

  • Clay and wax – If you run your hand over the paint after you have finished washing your car and still feel some small bumps, consider claying and then waxing your car. Clay can help remove impurities from your clear coat and paint and then wax will seal everything up to prevent further damage.  
  • Pay attention to the wheels – Sometimes when we wash our car, we think that simply spraying the wheels with water will get them clean. Some major road grime may come off with a simple spray, but if you get down there, you’ll likely see that your wheels are still coated in road and brake dust. Use a separate rag or get a special wheel brush to get those design crevasses spotless.  
  • Treat your trim – If you have an older vehicle with dark trim, you might have noticed it has lost its luster. UV rays, rain and other road factors can make this molding dull. You can get some special products to restore those pieces and it will go a long way to keep your car looking nice. 

You might wonder why cleaning the interior of your vehicle is important. Afterall, no one sees it but you, right? There are a few benefits to keeping your interior clean, and here are a few areas where you might want to focus: 

  • Clean out clutter – Open your glove box, center console and trunk and really look through the items that are stored. Does it all need to be in your vehicle? Throw out any trash, then lighten your load by removing any unnecessary items. This can even help improve your gas mileage.   
  • Refresh floors – Go the extra step and vacuum your carpets in the front and the back. Take out your floor mats and shampoo them to get all the grime tracked in from your shoes. If you notice some stains on the carpet underneath, shampoo or spot treat those as well. You’ll want to catch these spots before they’re so ground in you can’t remove them. 
  • Pamper interior trim – Just like your exterior trim, your interior trim needs to be treated properly. Your front and rear dashboards are especially susceptible to wear and could be showing signs of aging from UV exposure. Take time to treat these areas with special cleaner to keep them looking new. 

Spring Clean Your Vehicle
While many focus their spring cleaning on their homes, it’s valuable to keep your vehicle clean as well. Taking time to address both the exterior and interior of your vehicle will be well worth your time. Not only will it help you keep up the trade-in value of your vehicle, it’s also just nice to have a car that looks good.
