It is no secret that inclement winter weather can wreak havoc on your car. The salt, slush, and grime that your car is likely to have accumulated over the winter months can leave your vehicle in pretty rough cosmetic shape by the time spring finally begins to move in. This means that your first appointment for professional car detailing after winter in Middletown, NJ will be very important for the condition of your vehicle.
Winter weather damage
After the winter is over, your car’s body and undercarriage will be filled with all sorts of debris from the season. In addition to deteriorating the condition of the paint job, the chemicals and various contaminants could also cause the undercarriage of your vehicle to rust. Once this rust sets in, it can spread to the brakes, axles and any other steel components on your car. This can make your car unsafe to drive, and it will be imperative to have your car detailed as soon as the weather clears to prevent rust from forming.
Cleaning the exterior
One way to avoid the problems that rust can cause is to give your car a thorough cleaning once the winter is over. The tires and wheel wells, undercarriage and spaces beneath the bumper will all need to be pressure-washed to ensure that all of the winter residue have been removed. Contaminants can slowly deteriorate your vehicle’s paint job, and the body will also need a good polish to restore its luster after a hard winter. Once all of the evidence of winter has been washed off your vehicle, make sure a coat of wax is applied for continued protection.
It will be important to make sure that the inside of your car receives just as much attention as the exterior. The brunt of winter’s effects will likely be seen on the carpeting, so remove all of the mats so that a deep vacuuming and cleaning can be done. The longer the salt and dirt stays on the carpet, the harder they will be to remove. The dashboard, steering wheel and pedals should also get a good wipe-down to rid all bacteria and grime, which will also help to alleviate any odors that might have settled in.
