Maintaining Your Vehicle

After struggling for years with a car that didn't work quite right, I was really pleased to be able to afford a new ride. I purchased a vehicle that was incredibly modern and sophisticated, and it was really lovely. I knew that I wanted to keep it in great condition, so I started researching the right ways to wash and detail the vehicle. It was a lot of work, but within a few short months I could tell that my changes had really made a difference. This blog is all about maintaining your vehicle and making sure that you retain the value.

Prevention Strategies To Keep Your Car Clean

If you want to keep your car in the best possible condition, your options are either to wash your car regularly or to take steps to reduce the extent to where you must use car wash services. Taking preventative measures can make it much less expensive to maintain your car. 

Keep the Car in the Garage

Keep your car in the garage whenever you can. It would be even better to purchase a car cover so that your car faces minimum exposure to dirt, dust, and debris. Keeping your car clean is essential because the dirt can cause damage to your car exterior over time. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that your car will simply get dirty again.

Don't Park Too Close Behind a Motorist

Do not stop your car close behind another motorist. As the car in front of you is running, it might kick rocks and debris up, which will make your car dirtier. The larger the vehicle in front of you, the bigger the projectiles that can be tossed up onto your car. 

Wash Your Car Often Enough

There are some cases where you must wash your car more often than usual. For example, if you will be driving your car through a coastal area, the salt will cause damage to your car over time. 

Wax It

You'll have a much easier time washing your car if you wax it frequently. This might add more work to cleaning your car the first time around, but it will pay off the next time you need to wash your car. You can put the extra work in on a day when you have extra free time so you won't have to do it when you're busier.

Don't Eat Inside

One of the most common reasons why a car becomes dirty on the inside is food. Avoid eating while you're in the car. Head home after getting food from a drive-through. Eating while in your car will not only lead to an accumulation of wrappers and stains but will also attract pests. It's also not safe to eat while driving.

Use the Right Pet Hair Removal Tools

If you have a pet dog, dog fur might coat your car interior after taking your dog for a few rides. To fix this, take a piece of tape and wrap it around your hand. Use the stickiness of the tape to remove as much dog fur as possible. Another approach used by some motorists is to use the static electricity generated by a balloon to lift up the dog fur.
