Spring Clean Your Acura near Chicago, IL

Spring Clean Your Acura near Chicago, IL

Here at Muller Acura of Merrillville, we highly recommend cleaning out your car every year! Not only will this leave you with a fresh ride that’s ready to travel down Lake Shore Drive, but it can ensure that you and your passengers are comfortable while on the road. Here are some tips and tricks to help you get the job done.

What Can I Do With A Clean Car?

There are several reasons why it is best to always keep a clean car. First and foremost, if you will be the one driving it, then you'll want a germ-free cabin that doesn’t get you or any of your passengers sick. Second, if you plan on selling your model, then it will need to be in peak condition in order for you to get the highest resale value possible. Third, if you are a driver for a rideshare service or use your car for business, then it is good to put your best foot forward and have a shining vehicle, inside and out.

Interior

Next, let’s jump into the logistics of how to actually clean your car. There are four main sections to focus on when sanitizing your interior—floors, seats, windows, and other surfaces. The first step is to empty out your cabin of any trash or other items. Then, you can begin by taking out any floor mats, hosing them down, and then vacuuming the carpeting. If you have cloth seating, then a vacuum will work well for that, too. To get out seat stains that are worked in or smells that are difficult to get rid of, upholstery cleaner should do the trick. On the other hand, if your seats are leather-trimmed, then conditioner or gentle oils are ideal. Next, your windows and mirrors should be polished with an automobile-specific glass cleaner on microfiber towels to reduce streaking and increase visibility and shine. Finally, all other flat surfaces can be wiped down with either disinfectant wipes or a soap and water solution to leave them free of dust.

Exterior

Soap and water will also be your go-to materials if you decide to wash the exterior of your Acura yourself. You will also need to gather together some sponges, microfiber towels, a hose, and a bucket. Then, we recommend scrubbing your vehicle from top to bottom. Once you get into all the small crevices and eliminate the caked-on grime and grit from the shell of your ride, hose it down completely. Then, wipe it down with towels out of the way of direct sunlight to avoid premature drying, which can leave unsightly spots. Sealing your hard work in with a wax can block your paint job from the harmful effects of sun exposure, ensuring that your car remains fresh for months to come.

Now that you know how to spring clean your Acura near Chicago, IL, we hope that you can get your vehicle back in tip-top shape. Contact our team at Muller Acura of Merrillville right away if you have any questions for us.

These guys are rock stars!!! Honest!!! Yes I said that about a car dealership. I contacted another dealership in Indy the day before and they agreed to a price by phone but went back on their word. Muller not only kept their word but found ways to save me more money. It was worth the 2 hour plus drive from Indy. Larry, Matt and the whole sales team were amazing.

I had the best experience buying a car from them. Usually I get worked up and stressed out when making this decision, but matt went above and beyond helping and making this an easy decision. He reviewed an offer I had received from another dealership and save me over 3k within minutes. I will always go back to him and Acura. Great cars and excelled customer service.

This was the second dealership that we visited that day. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome from Alex. He showed us the cars we requested and then introduced us to cars that matched our interests. We went from buying 1 car to 2 (Acura and Audi)!! They truly earned our business! Not only did they work hard to secure good rates and warranty coverage on the used vehicles (3 yrs old); but they carefully explained the process to us every step of the way. Neely was awesome too. She was patient as we updated our insurance with the new vehicles and then explained every document that we had to sign. We really felt we could trust them and that we would continue to receive top notch, quality service. We are glad to be a part of the Muller Family!
