There’s Nothing Like A Clean Vehicle!

Spring symbolizes rebirth and fresh starts, which is why this season has cleaning and organization on everyone’s mind. If you’re looking to get your surroundings in order, check out some of our favorite spring cleaning tips from Midland Buick GMC in Midland, TX.

Remove Out-of-Reach Dust

Thanks to all of the beautiful new blooms and pollen, spring can be a rough time of year for those with allergies. Don’t let dust add to that issue. Spend a day cleaning hard-to-reach places like the tops of door frames, ceiling fans, and bookshelves.

Use Your Dishwasher

This hard-working machine doesn’t have to be just for dishes. Fill yours with things like light fixtures, vases, toys, or anything else that could benefit from a gentle rinse.

Remove Dust from Upholstery

The quickest way to get rid of dirt, fur, dust, and debris is by using rubber gloves. Run your gloved hands under water, pat them dry so that they’re damp, and then run your hands over chairs, couches, and rugs to collect debris.

Clean Around Your Stove

Use special degreasing kitchen cleaner to scrub away the grease that has built up from cooking. People are more likely to cook if their kitchen is clean and welcoming. With fresh spring and summer produce lingering on the horizon, there’s no better time than now to get that stove-top ready.

March is here and spring has sprung, which means for a lot of people, it’s time to check some things off your list of spring cleaning and maintenance. Here are some spring car prep tips to get you started on taking care of your vehicle.

Wash Your Car

Winter leaves all kind of dirt and grime on cars that you wouldn’t even realize – for example, salt stuck up in the undercarriage, or dirt left behind by snow. Give your car a thorough spring cleaning to make it shine again.

Don’t Overlook Your Wipers

Spring means rain, which means you should probably swap out your wiper blades and refill the wiper fluid reservoir.

Inspect Your Tires

Check tread depth on your tires and also make a point to fill them up to the recommended tire pressure; cold temperatures cause tires to deflate faster.

Have Your Battery Tested

Tires aren’t the only thing cold temperatures mess with. Battery capacity also suffers through the winter, so you should have a shop run a diagnostics test on the strength of your car battery to see if you should get it replaced.

Get Your Oil Changed

Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine. If you changed it in the fall, it’s about time to have another oil change after the winter months.
