BC Drivers: Why You Should Wash Your Ford in the Winter

May 25,2022

When it comes to maintenance, keeping the outside of the vehicle clean should be routine. This includes during the winter months. Although many people tend to skip out on washing their cars during the colder season, it is very important to continue doing so. The reason you need to do this is because the slush, ice, and dirt mixture combined with the salt used to de-ice roads can wreak havoc on your paint job. Not only that, but it can also cause corrosion underneath the automobile. What's even worse is that you probably would never notice the damage until you had it serviced later on. Corrosion leads to rust, which you want to avoid at all costs. When temperatures plummet and the snow begins to fall, you need to make the undercarriage is rinsed on a regular basis. Any hard-to-reach sections also need to be washed off. These include bumpers, wheels wells, and any other area that may be susceptible to rust. It is recommended that you use a bucket of warm water to handle this task. The hose will be frozen, and cold water is too painful to deal with during this time of year.
