After a long winter of driving on snow and ice, you may want to take a look at your tires. Are your tires filled to the proper amount? Are your vehicle’s tires too worn down? When was the last time you had a tire rotation? You should be asking yourself these questions before you start driving around this summer. 


During the winter, your windshield wipers go through a lot. They have to push snow and ice off your windshield, and that takes a toll after a while. It may be a smart idea to invest in some new windshield wipers to help you clean your windshield from bugs and summer rain. 


After tidying up your house, you should also clean out your car. There are probably a punch of wrappers and receipts on the floor that should be picked up. Take some time to organize your golf box and take out unnecessary or outdated paperwork. Remember to vaccum the interior of your car as well to give it a nice clean feeling.

    Winter is harsh for vehicles. During winter winter mud,ice and snow makes the vehicle dirty. Therefore spring cleaning of the vehicle is necessary. We should wash and wax the exterior portion of the vehicle. Carpets and seats must be cleaned with the help of a carpet cleaner. We must clean under the hood. Changing the air filter is also important. During winter, ice and snow can wear out the wipers. So it is necessary to change the windshield wipers with the arrival of spring.
