Ford Spring Detailing Tips in Peachland

May 25,2022

There is something magical about springtime in BC – the weather is warmer, the snow has melted, and we’re anxious to get outside. After being cooped up all winter, now is a great time to give your ride some TLC.

Here are some spring detailing tips from our service experts at Skaha Ford:

Paint care: Using a car-washing mitt, give the exterior of your car, truck or SUV a good scrub, followed by a chamois for drying and an overall wax.

Wheel care: Clean your wheels using a product that has been formulated for your specific wheel type, like an acid-free pH-balanced aluminum wheel cleaner.

Glass care: Use an auto glass cleaner to polish your vehicle’s interior and exterior windows and mirrors. Stay away from ammonia-based products, as they can dry out cabin materials. 

Carpet care: Give your carpets a deep cleaning with a vacuum. If stains or grime has settled into the fibres, use a soft-bristled brush and auto carpet cleanser to make them look new again.

Upholstery care: Treat leather upholstery using a cleaner and conditioner or a mild fabric cleaner to spot-treat cloth upholstery.  

Surface care: Wipe down all surfaces throughout the vehicle, such as the dash, door handles, steering wheel and shifter.

Always choose the right products when detailing your vehicle. Common household cleaners can be too harsh and may harm interior and exterior finishes.
