Ultimate spring cleaning checklist

Now that winter has been and gone, the time has come to get ready for spring. The better, warmer weather means you will be using your heater less, and (hopefully) winding your windows down a lot more. So how can you get your car prepared for the new season? Here’s our checklist of things to do to get your motor ready.

1 – Have a clear out

Chances are that if you use your car a lot, then food wrappers and empty drink bottles will have accumulated over the colder months. Grab a bin bag and get rid of all the trash in your car. And take two bags, so you can separate the recyclables and help save the planet.

2 – Clean the filters

Spring can be a season of contrasts, with a mixture of cold and warm days keeping you off balance until the weather settles in the summer. You will be using your air con for both types of weather. But with spring comes a lot of pollen. So if you suffer from hay fever, you might well be trapped in a nightmare of recirculating flower and grass pollen. By cleaning out your filters, you’ll be making them much more efficient.

3 – Hoover your carpets

The wet and wintry weather means dirty shoes, and dirty shoes means dirty carpets. You’ll want to give your carpets a good clean, as spring means you’ll be heading out a lot more for walks and recreation. Get ahead of the grime and have a good vacuum of your car’s interior.

4 – Give your car a good spit and polish

Longer days and more sunshine can really show up the grit and grime that’s gathered on your car. So give it a good wash now. If you have the time and the money, a good wax and polish will make your car really stand out in the car park.
