After a long winter, spring is the perfect time to detail your vehicle. Driving through the roads of Niles, IL and the rest of the Midwest, all of the snow, ice and salt buildup on your vehicle not only detracts from the look of your vehicle but it can cause damage, such as premature rusting. At Bob Korvas Agency Inc. we want your vehicle to last as long as possible. That is why you need to take advantage of spring. The warmer weather makes it the perfect time to detail your car.
Clean the Underside
Target the underside of your vehicle extensively. This is where rust is not only most likely to develop but also most likely to cause damage to your vehicle. Remove any and all dirt, grime and other debris once spring hits. Doing so helps cut down on the chance of your vehicle developing serious rust issues.
Mind the Details
Don’t just wash every area of the car the same. Focus on the details of your vehicle. This can be the small indentation running in between panels. You also want to focus on the wheel well as this is an area most automatic car wishes miss. Dirt collects up in here and often remains for months and can develop rust. Focusing on these areas helps prevent the growth and expansion of rust.
Don’t Miss the Wheels
Beyond the wheel wells, don’t miss the wheels. this is often the forgotten area of the vehicle when it comes to washing it, yet it is what comes into the most contact with moisture and salt. Clean off the wheels and scrub away any dirt. Both aluminum and steel wheels can deteriorate quickly when not receiving the necessary attention during the spring months.
