It’s that time of year again: the time to greet the warmer weather and get ready for the summer months. With spring’s showers and summer’s outdoor trips, you’ll want to make sure that your vehicle is ready for whatever adventure you have planned. Here are some tips for spring cleaning your car.
- Scrub the exterior and clean out the interior: To make your car look and feel brand-new, give the exterior a good scrub down and clean out the interior, removing trash, vacuuming the floors and upholstery, and wiping down all surfaces. After you wash your vehicle’s exterior, you should consider waxing it, which will help protect it while out adventuring – like when you go mudding. You can also get all-weather floor mats to protect your vehicle’s interior from dirt and everyday wear-and-tear.
- Perform basic maintenance tasks: After you clean your vehicle, you will want to perform some basic maintenance tasks. You should check your oil and fluid levels (including windshield wiper fluid and coolant) as well as your tire pressure and treads. You should also check your windshield wiper blades and make sure they’re not streaking while in use, which decreases visibility in the rain.
- Update interior: If you’ve been meaning to add a smartphone mount or charging cable to your vehicle, it’s a great time to do so, setting yourself up perfectly for spring and summer road trips.
