It’s summertime! Which means, family vacation, road trips, and of course, the extreme heat that comes with it. One of the most essential elements to all of your summertime fun is your vehicle, so don’t forget to take measures to protect it from the heat and sun.
It’s easy to neglect some of the potentially hazardous effects exposure to extreme heat and sunlight can have on your car. While most of the parts on your car are durable enough to stand up to the elements, some other parts are made of rubber and plastic which are susceptible to cracking, softening or dry rot. Most of the time this is due to excessive exposure to changing weather conditions. So be sure to inspect all of these parts to make sure they are in proper working condition or replace them as needed.
Summer also brings about allergens like pollen that get filtered out by your car’s air filter, so be sure it is clean and replaced often. Finally, the sun’s rays can damage your car’s interior and exterior, so let us at Bowtie Detail Services help you treat your interior vinyl or leather and clean and prep your paint job against fading and cracking. And while we’re at it, here is a full list of things to check off your vehicle maintenance checklist before your family hits the road this summer!
