Harsh Washington winters undoubtedly call for some truck TLC come springtime. Reviving your truck to get it ready for the activities of spring is best done now, before they are in full swing.
Smooth Exterior Wash
While a rough scrub off the outside of your car might seem like the most obvious way to rid it of the grime winter brings, doing so can cause extensive damage to your paint. A smooth exterior wash is the way to go. Purchase a car wash solution and carve out some time to gently wash your truck’s exterior by hand. It may take a little longer but the shiny finish is well worth it.
You’ve tracked in tons of snow, mud and dirt in over the winter months. Tackling all of that build up with a stiff brush will help loosen all that’s caked into your carpets and trapped in the fibers. You’ll want to vacuum everything up to catch any small debris you weren’t able to remove by hand.
The tires on your truck truly take a beating as they’re exposed to the elements all winter and pick up salt off of the roads. Cleaning them with a chemical-free will help get them back into tip-top shape while extending the life of your tires. A scrub with a stiff brush and a second scrub with a finer brush, a toothbrush will even work, will help clear your tires of debris big and small.
Wipe Those Windows
A thorough deep clean of your truck would not be complete without addressing your windows. Be sure to roll your windows down halfway and clear them of any accumulation along the edge of the glass. Using a microfiber cloth will help leave a streak-free shine.
Getting your truck cleaned up after winter doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. Simply carve out a couple of hours this weekend to get your truck ready for the season ahead.
