The Importance of Cleaning Your Car and Maintaining a Sludge-Free Engine With Synthetic Oil Changes

Cleaning your vehicle is more important than you think. Every part of your car has a role, the engine, the windows, the seats, the hood. Each area needs to be kept in a good state in order to allow the vehicle to function adequately as a whole. This means that although cleaning and washing your vehicle may seem like a task that is done just for appearance it is actually much more than that. We already discussed how important it is to keep the engine clean and free of buildup in another post. Today we want to talk about the importance of washing and cleaning every area of your vehicle and provide some tips to help you complete the task more efficiently.

A Clean Engine Starts With a Synthetic Oil Changes

It is a bare necessity to keep the engine clean and functioning. Buildup, sludge, and other deposits inside it can get in the way of its performance and cause trouble. That is why it is very important that you check and change the oil as needed ant that you use synthetic oil to prevent these problems. AMSOIL synthetic oil helps to clean out buildup and continues to regularly protect against sludge. Contact Cerberus Systems, Inc. now

Cleaning the Inside of the Hood Can Prevent  Damage to the Internal Parts

Inside the hood are all sorts of important components that help your vehicle function. Keeping the inside of the hood can help avoid problems related to gunk and residue. Any type of filth that accumulates in these areas can start to cause the vehicle to act up. Overtime, filth, and dirt can harm more delicate pieces of the engine such as the hoses or wires. Here, you can read a perfect example of how dirty engine pieces can start to cause problems.

How to Properly Clean the Inside of Your Hood

To clean the inside of the hood you need to use a rag or other cloth to efficiently wipe the surfaces. Doing this regularly prevents too much gunk from building up. In some cases where the inside of the hood has never been regularly cleaned, it may be necessary to take stronger measures. The most efficient and safest option is to take it to a professional that can clean the inside of the hood. It may seem easy to just wash off the inside of the hood with a hose but we advise against this. There may be sensitive electrical parts that could get damaged by the water.

Advice for Cleaning the Interior of Your Vehicle

Designate one day of the week to go through the stuff inside your vehicle and check the trunk to see if there are  things that need to be taken out. Also once a day, preferably after you parked your car for the night you should take out all the trash. The easiest way to do this is to keep a small can, box or plastic bag in which you can deposit all the wrappers, trash, empty bottles, etc. of stuff that you bring into your car but don´t get the chance to immediately throw out. That way you can just grab the bag, box, etc. and dump the contents into a trash bin to prevent  trash from being scattered all over your vehicle. Dusting the interior and vacuuming the inside should also be done around every week or so. Make sure you clean any stains as soon as possible and avoid odors by using an efficient odor remover.

Take Care of the Exterior of Your Car

Excess of dirt and other environmental residues can damage the car paint, make their way inside the hood and eventually lead to trouble. Wash your car at least once a week and use the right products. Regular soap can be too harsh for the paint so find a detergent that is ideal for car exteriors. Take the time to softly scrub any sap or bird droppings and have two buckets full of water. One should have soapy water for the cloth or sponge and the other should be a bucket full of clean water for rinsing it. Once you have cleaned the surface with soap and removed any sticky residues you can then rinse it off. Be sure to clean the windows with an adequate window cleaner and use a microfiber to wipe them dry. Dry off the rest of your vehicle with a soft cloth and also take the time to rinse and inspect the tires. Doing so will help remove any particles that could potentially become encrusted and would wear out the tires more easily.
