With the fall months quickly approaching, getting your car ready for the upcoming weather change is important. Not only should you make sure that your vehicle is properly serviced and safe to drive, keeping it clean will help you feel better about going into a new season. There are plenty of tips and tricks out there on this subject, but here are our top five quick cleaning tips to get your Kia ready for Fall.
Clean Your Windows and Mirrors
Having properly cleaned windows and mirrors could make all the difference as the weather gets colder. Make sure and clean your Kia’s front and rear windows as well as all side windows. You should also clean your exterior and interior mirrors. Keep your windshield wiper fluid full too so you can easily clean your windshield in case it gets dirty. Being able to see clearly will keep you safe as well.
Vacuum the Interior
Leaves, grass, and other debris can pile up quickly, especially in the fall. You should vacuum your seats and floorboards as well as the floor mats. Feel free to use your own vacuum or one at a car wash. The vacuum will also clean up any mud, sand, or dirt that may have been left behind from summer trips.
Clean the Exterior
Washing the exterior of your Kia is the perfect thing to get your car fall-ready. Be sure to focus on your lights and wheels, which are notorious for clinging to unwanted debris. Your lights will shine brighter when there isn’t a coat of dust on them. You can clean them by hand or run your vehicle through a car wash if you are short on time. You should do this regularly to keep your Kia looking new.
Try Waxing Your Kia
If you want to take cleaning to the next level, you should give waxing a try. This will not only help to keep your paint looking newer for longer, but it also offers protection for weeks or even months if done correctly. Waxing helps protect your paint from degrading and provides extra protection against scratches. Keep your car looking brand new this fall season with a fresh wax.
Deep Clean Your Upholstery
Another great way to clean your car for fall is to deep clean your upholstery. If you have cloth seats you can do your seats and carpet flooring. If you have leather seating, then the flooring will definitely benefit from this. It will get your interior smelling fresh and ready for the new season. You can purchase upholstery cleaners marketed for home use or rent one if need be.
