Below are 3 tips for cleaning your car once spring time comes along:
Auto Glass Replacement
After a harsh winter, the glass on your vehicle can sustain quite a lot of damage. It is important to thoroughly check all of the glass on your vehicle, including the back window, side windows, and the sunroof if you have one; this is to ensure there are no cracks or chips. If you notice any cracks or chips, it is highly recommended that you bring your car in for auto glass replacement, to ensure your vehicle is safe to drive. If the damage is small enough you may be able to qualify for a windshield repair rather than a replacement and save yourself some money.
Get Your Car Washed
It is vital to the longevity of your vehicle that you get it properly cleaned after a winter season. Properly cleaning the exterior of your car is important in maintaining the paint and stopping it from peeling or chipping away. Washing your cars exterior will also unveil any cracks, chips or scuffs on the glass areas of your vehicle, like your windshield. This is important for safety, and it will remove any dirty that may be covering up damage. Take your car to a car wash, and finish off the wash with a car wax. This step is very important as it seals the paint, and adds a shiny coat.
Maintenance, Maintenance, Maintenance…
Spring is a great time to perform a quick inspection and general maintenance on your vehicle. Test to see if your headlights and taillights are in working order, and if the glass on your car is in safe condition for you to drive. A professional opinion is always best when it comes to auto glass. Also, it is important make sure your mechanic checks alignment since wintery bumpy roads and potholes can throw alignment off and cause premature wear.
