Maintenance &and Detailing

Valentine’s Day is a great time to run through your maintenance checklist. Winter weather is especially tough on your vehicle, so it’s very important you check your tire tread and air pressure, top up any fluids (like coolant and windshield wiper fluid), and give your battery a good clean. After finishing your maintenance tasks, move on to detailing.

Start off your detailing session by cleaning the outside of your car. Follow this guide to washing your car properly in cold weather.

Make sure you use the right products for the materials inside your vehicle. For example, you can find cleaning products made specifically for upholstery, leather, and glass. Don’t forget to vacuum your floors to remove any dust, salt, or crumbs. Complete your detailing session by hanging up an air freshener to lock in a clean scent.
