Tips for keeping your car clean

Keeping your vehicle clean inside and out can pay big dividends when it comes to maintaining its long-term value. The non-profit Car Care Council suggests some simple steps to keep your vehicle clean and protect it from the elements so it retains its resale and trade-in value.



Declutter - Start the cleaning process by removing excess clutter from inside the car as it can be distracting and hazardous, especially when debris finds its way near the gas and brake pedals. Don't forget to clear out items that have accumulated in the trunk as they can add extra weight and reduce fuel efficiency.



Clean the Interior - The next step is to thoroughly clean the interior, wash the windows, and clean and install floor mats. Be sure to vacuum on a regular basis. A clean and orderly interior allows you to spot issues in the cabin so you can get them repaired before they get worse.



Wash the Exterior - Give the car a good wash from top to bottom using products specifically made for automobiles (not dish detergent). Always clean the tires and wheels before washing the body, and don't use the same washing mitt or cloth for both.



Wax Twice a Year - Waxing not only protects a vehicle's finish, but it also makes subsequent washing easier. Before proceeding, make sure there are no foreign particles on the paint. It is important to note that waxing should be done in the shade, not direct sunlight.



Fix Chips - If there is minor paint damage, cover the paint chips as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. For a quick fix until you can get paint touchup supplies, dab a little clear nail polish on the scratch.



Since many vehicles are sitting idle for long periods these days, it is important to remove the grime and sediment that can build up on the outside of the car to help prevent rust. It's also a good idea to wipe the dashboard, steering wheel, cup holders, door handles, vents and console with a quality, all-purpose automotive cleaner to disinfect the interior areas of the vehicle.

Testimonials

In Bismarck on a Monday in April 2021 returning home to western ND. Our van began to sputter as we prepared to leave Sam's Club. I immediately began to look for an auto repair shop close to Sam's. Auto Therapy reviews were great and close to Sam's, I called Tim the owner, he said bring it in and I will take a look at it. This guy was amazing! He knew we were stranded - put the car on the lift - diagnosed the problem and proceeded to look for parts. We had to go home, so we had to rent a car to get home. Not only did he get the van scheduled to be fixed asap, he said he had to go to Williston on Saturday and would drive the car back to us in Watford. This guy is the real deal - knowledgeable, honest and a has a great shop and staff. I have never in my long life had such an amazing experience with any business. There are not enough words to express my gratitude Tim Geloff with Auto Therapy!
