Your vehicle does a lot for you and deserves to be shown some love and pampering. With these tips, your vehicle will look new, run smooth, and even save you money.
It’s best to wash your car, truck, or SUV weekly. But any bug remains and bird droppings should be washed off right away, for they can damage and break down the paint surface. It’s important to only use a car-wash specific solution when washing your vehicle. Make sure to rinse all the surface thoroughly with water before beginning to wash. And after washing the whole surface, never skip the drying. You don’t want any water spots left behind. Once surface is dry, use a wax or sealant for shine and protection.
Check Tire Pressure Regularly
Proper tire inflation is essential to the overall performance of your vehicle. Your vehicle’s manual should have the recommended cold tire PSI for the front and rear tires. By using a pressure gauge you can check the pressure of each tire. If a tire has low pressure, use an air compressor to refill. We recommend checking tire pressure monthly to ensure your tires never dip below the recommended PSI.
To keep your seats looking their best, take care of any stains, rips, and cracks as soon as they happen. Vacuum does a great job of removing surface dirt and dust. But for those deep stains, use a car carpet and upholstery cleaner. They work to deep clean your seats without saturating them with moisture. If you have leather seats, use a special leather cleaner followed by conditioner and protector. Not only will your seats look new, the interior will smell fresh.
Keep Wheels Shiny
It’s important to clean, polish, and protect your wheels on a regular basis. The dust that you see covering your vehicle’s wheels is greasy road grime and brake dust – which can damage your wheels if left on the surface too long. Fortunately, there are many wheel cleaners that dissolve grime and brake dust. Different kinds of wheels require a different kind of treatment so it’s important to know what kind of wheels you have. Follow the directions on the label and make sure the product isn’t left too long. Use a wheel brush to scrub the wheel, making sure no spots are missed. After the wheels are rinsed and dry, don’t forget to apply a special protector that will enhance the shine of your wheels.
