Spring Maintenance: Why You Should Do It

2 Reasons Why We Think Spring Is the Best Time for Car Maintenance

Congratulations if you managed to pull through the winter without any major repairs to your car. As we all know, though, the best way to minimize expensive repairs is to prevent damage from occurring.  Don’t wait for a problem to creep up! Winters are punishing: cold weather, snow, ice, road slush, salt and ashes can all take a pretty big toll on your car. Here’s why we think you should schedule spring maintenance to undo any winter damage.

1. Your car is the dirtiest in winter

Washing your car in the winter seems like a futile exercise. And even if you wash it, there’s little you can do to keep it clean, thanks to the constant snow and those man-made factors designed to keep the roads safe. De-icer, for example, is used to lower the freezing point of ice and make it harder for water to freeze on the road. De-icer is made from water, salt and magnesium chloride. It is highly corrosive and can damage your car if you do not wash it off regularly.

In short, de-icer and road salt are used to keep roads safe, but they can damage your car. A high-pressure sprayer can help you get rid of the buildup. Davis Car Care also checks for signs of rust or other damage to the underbody and the windshield wiper blades.
