Maintain Peak Condition with Proper Car Cleaning

If you want to make sure that your vehicle stays in the best condition possible, then you need to do a car cleaning from time to time. Out on the road, there are plenty of things that can affect your car, and some of them may require a wash more than you realize. With Clean Getaway’s car wash in Kalamazoo, you can get the car cleaning that you need, all at a reasonable price.

How often

On a normal basis, doing a car cleaning every two weeks or so is a good routine to stick with. However, if you live in areas that receive excess salt, insects, mud, or any other thing that sticks to your car, you may want to increase your frequency. Salt can corrode metal and cause rust over time, acidity of insects can eat through paint, and mud can also cause extra wear and tear that could be avoided by regular car washes. With monthly clubs and quality facilities, Clean Getaway car wash in Kalamazoo can give you the regular washes to keep your vehicle in the best condition possible.

4 Auto Cleaning Tips for Winter from Clean Getaway Auto Detail Center

In Michigan, your vehicle is exposed to all sorts of hazards during the winter, including dirt and grime, salt, ice, and snow. Besides the unattractive look of salt covering your vehicle, these hazards can cause serious damage to your paint surface, or even worse, create rust. While it’s best to have your car detailed professionally by Clean Getaway Auto Detail Center this winter, you should also take care of your car at home by following the four tips in this blog post.

Frequent car washes

Washing the salt off of your vehicle is an incredibly important part of keeping rust at bay. Paying special attention to your fenders, bumpers, undercarriage, and wheels, make sure salt is sprayed off regularly to prevent rust.

Use paint protectant

Using a paint sealant, like wax, will provide your car with more protection and help keep salt and snow from sticking to its exterior. It will also help prevent chips or other marks from damaging your paint.

Keep a clean interior

The snow and salt from your boots can wreak havoc on your car’s interior. The good news is, the carpet is easy to clean if you regularly clean it. Once of the easiest ways is to use a firm brush with a solution of half distilled vinegar and half water.

Care for your undercarriage and wheels

Like paint protectant, adding a protective sealant to your undercarriage and wheels will help to prevent rust. A rusted undercarriage can create a safety concern and, as we all know, it does not take rust long to spread to other parts of your vehicle!
