Out of sight, out of mind is the usual approach when it comes to parts of our cars. However, this may actually be harmful to your vehicle. All too often the underside of our cars are left untouched and neglected and this is particularly hazardous for car owners in our area.
Road salt is corrosive and being in close proximity to it can lead to some pretty expensive repairs down the road. Taking precautions like washing once a week can stave off damage due to corrosion.
Whenever you take your car to get cleaned most of the emphasis is on the exterior, but the underside of our cars collect a lot of dirt and grime that can lead to issues like clogging drainage holes, chipping parts of the undercarriage, or even rusting. All of which can cause your car to break down and even negatively impact the resale value.
While every car owner should consider getting the undercarriage cleaned it’s important for those that frequently drive on rough and rocky roads to make it part of their car maintenance routine. Doing so can help maintain and extend the life of your vehicle and ensure that all parts are in good working order.
A professional wash will take care of all of your car’s parts—what you can and can’t see.
