Keep Your Car Clean Between Auto Detailing in Billings
Prevent Getting Dirty to Keep Clean Longer
Your car is literally your companion and you use it to do lots of things and go to lots of different places. And because your car takes care of you and your family, it’s only fitting that you take care of it too, right? There’s virtually no downside to doing it. All you get is the benefit of enjoying a safe, pleasant, and comfortable ride. You want to treat it well with by getting it detailed.
An integral part of caring for your car is keeping it clean. We’re not just talking about washing and waxing, though that’s part of it, of course. Since you don’t wash and wax your car every time you take it out, you need to do other things to keep it as clean as possible in-between auto detailing schedules. Here are some useful tips from Big Sky Collision Center, your source of auto detailing in Billings, to help you out.
8 Tips to Keep Your Car Clean
Don’t eat in your car.
If you refrain from bringing food in your car, you will not have to deal with stains, crumbs, straws, cartons, wrappers and all kinds of other stuff that comes with eating. Plus, if morsels of food get left in your car, there’s the chance that mold will grow. With mold growth comes the disgusting smell and the possibility of your car becoming a health hazard.
Clean up messes as soon as you can.
Letting stains and spills linger longer than necessary will make removal harder, or worse, impossible to do. Doing it sooner rather than later will make dirt and stains come off faster and easier.
Keep a trash bag or small trash can in your car.
With somewhere or something specific to put your trash in, there’s less risk for junk getting into places in your car which you are inclined to miss out during cleaning. Remember stuffing gum wrappers into the ash trays?
Don’t get in without knocking your shoes first.
Knocking your shoes together helps remove excess dirt, gunk and ice (if there’s snow). So when you get in your car, your shoes will not be as dirty. And your car mats will not have to get as dirty too.
Garage your car.
Not everyone has their own garage. But if you can, try as much as possible to park your car in an enclosed or covered area. This way, you’ll have better chances of avoiding all kinds of elements (natural and man-made) from dirtying your car.
Wash your car regularly, not occasionally.
We know it’s not easy because everyone always seems busy. But, if you make it a point to set a specific schedule for washing your car, you will eventually get used to it as it becomes part of your routine. No need to even use a hose. Just use two buckets: one for for soap and one for water. Scrub your car using the soapy water, then wash it off with clean water. Remember to do your cleaning under a shady spot. Otherwise, if you do it under the sun, water will evaporate and dry up quickly, leaving spots that will require additional cleaning.
Do occasional waxing.
With wax, your car is better protected from dirt, dust, grime, and even watermarks. This will make it easier to clean your car on succeeding times.
Keep your car clean.
It’s easier to keep something clean when you see that it’s clean to begin with. This goes for you and your passengers. When you see a clean car, you will not be as inclined to mess it up and make it dirty.
