Now is the time when homeowners start to think about clearing up clutter and removing junk from their home with a thorough spring cleaning. This year, why not include your car?

Regular housework is the best way to keep your home looking clean and tidy. However, despite your best efforts, personal items and junk begin to accumulate throughout the year until your regular maintenance is barely keeping everything in order. Enter the spring clean, when everything gets reset and homeowners get a fresh start.

Why Not Include Your Car?

Just like your home accumulates mess and clutter, so too does your car see the same treatment. With this in mind, consider including your car in this year’s spring clean with some great starter tips from Ken Reaser Enterprises.

Your Battery

Considering that, if it stops working then your car won’t start, let’s start with your battery. A battery is the easiest engine part to inspect and requires little more than a visual inspection. If you can see any grime or dirt buildup, use a dry clean cloth and safely wipe it away. Otherwise, if everything looks good then no further action needed. On the other hand, if you can see that your battery is on its last legs or there is corrosion, replace the batter sooner rather than later, remembering that it’s better that your battery is replaced while you are at home with nothing to do instead of the car park with a trunk full of melting grocery items.

Your Air Filter

Your mechanic likely charges you when they change your air filter. And while air filters will eventually wear out, motorists can easily remove and install their air filter in the driveway. Check your owners manual or look online for a tutorial which includes instructions for your specific vehicle. In addition to reducing mechanic costs, it can also help improve your engine performance.

Your Fluids

It doesn’t matter if your vehicle is brand new and has the most advanced engine, if your fluids run out or they have worn out then your engine isn’t going to operate for very long. Make a checklist of oils and fluids your car uses and make your way through it, with these points in mind:
  • Use only high-quality products.
  • Don’t just top up your fluids again, flush them out and replace them.
  • If possible, clean the fluid containers.
  • Remove grime and build up from the fluid lines and check their condition.
  • Clean up any spills before you move on to the next task.
  • Once you have finished, store the remaining fluid upright in your car.

Interior

Keeping the interior of your car clean and tidy is just as important as vehicle and engine maintenance. When it comes time for this job, remember that it isn’t something which you do every week or even every month, so make sure to give 100% effort and keep these points in mind:
  • Whether you like it or not, everything has to come out of your car before you can clean it.
  • If you have car seats, wash them separately as per their instructions and only reinstall them once they are completely dry.
  • Use your vacuum cleaner attachments to reach more spaces in your vehicle, such as high up where your pedals are and dirt from your shoes can accumulate.
  • If possible, take out the carpet in your trunk and wash it. Otherwise, use a dry cleaning agent to remove stains and freshen it up.
  • You can use a damp cloth to wipe away any grime and dirt from rubber seals and controllers.

Wheels

Despite the hard work that your wheels and tires put in to get your through a range of terrain in between point A and point B, motorists rarely show their tires the attention they deserve. This spring clean, spend a bit of time to check on the condition of your tires and wheels, in particular:
  • Don’t hurry along the task. Take your time to complete it thoroughly.
  • Take your vehicle out into the bright sun to help you get a better look.
  • Use a wet cloth to wipe away grime and dirt from your wheels and tires.
  • Adjust your tire inflation if necessary.
  • Inspect your tires for any cracks, lodged debris, or parts of the tire which has no tread.
  • Seems you are down there, check on the condition of your brakes, also.
