Spring Cleaning Your Car

Mar 11, 2019, 09:53 AM by Discount Auto Glass

Spring is upon us, so why not drive into the season with a fresh outlook and a clean car? It’s time to handle some routine maintenance, wash off the winter and keep your exterior shining. These simple tips will help you get your vehicle in tip-top shape for the season of new beginnings. 


It doesn’t just trigger seasonal allergies, it coats your vehicle in the springtime. While we often view it as simply an annoyance, pollen can actually cause paint damage if left in place for too long. Make sure you wash pollen off regularly with water, keep your windshield washer fluid topped off, park in an enclosed space such as a garage when you can, and keep your windows closed. After a thorough wash, coat with wax to help protect your car’s finish. 

Check Tires, Brakes and Wiper Blades

It’s important to make sure your vehicle is running safely, and that you’re prepared for the wild weather that a southern spring and summer may throw your way. Check your wiper blades for tearing or cracking that winter weather or general wear and tear may have caused, and replace if necessary before you get caught in the rain. Make sure the tread on your tires is at a safe level and that you don’t need an alignment. Also, remember to have your brakes checked before heading out on a getaway in the warmer weather. Safety always comes first, and prevention is key!

Freshen Up!

Many people are guilty of having a car floorboard covered in water bottles, jackets piled up in the back seat or empty cups still sitting in cup holders. Now is the perfect time to ditch the junk and feel comfortable in your car again! Clean, vacuum, shampoo and deodorize your interior. Give your exterior a detailed wash, then take it out for a spin. You’ll be surprised by how much lighter your space feels!
