Spring Cleaning Your Volvo

 

ASV

Spring is approaching quickly! We know how eager you are to start spring cleaning your home, but don’t forget to spring clean your Volvo! Giving your car a good scrub inside and out not only protects your investment, but it’ll make your Volvo a nicer place for those beautiful spring days! We have complied some tips and tricks to help you give your Volvo a clean start to spring!

Freshening the Interior

Start by cleaning out all the trash, to-go cups, and any other debris you have in your Volvo. Make sure to slide your seats forward and backwards to get every piece of trash. Thoroughly vacuum out your Volvo including your trunk. Then organize what is left. Next will be to deep clean your vehicle’s interior. If dirt has embedded itself in the textures of your vinyl, some detail scrubbing with an old toothbrush will do the trick! The old toothbrush can come in handy to clean the crumbs and dirt out of those pesky seams in your seat cushions. If you have any shoe scuff marks or sticky food stains on any vinyl or leather parts of your Volvo, take a Magic Eraser to those and they’ll disappear! Once you’ve got your Volvo completely detailed and squeaky clean, put a few dryer sheets under your cars seats to have a nice clean scent in your Volvo!

Cleaning the Exterior

Now that the interior of your vehicle is nice and clean, it is time to take care of the exterior of your vehicle. Most people jump right into washing their vehicle’s paint, but try cleaning your tires and rims before washing your vehicle’s paint. The tires and rims are often the dirtiest part of the vehicle and as you spray them off, dirt can get on the paint of your vehicle. So spray and clean your tires, rims and undercarriage first before you move on to the rest of the Volvo! Make sure you have a cleaner formulated specifically for cars. Once you’ve mixed the cleaner and water, you can go one step further and fill a second bucket with clean rinse water. Use the clean bucket of water to rinse off your wash mitt often. Rinsing off your wash mitt often helps remove most of the road grit and helps prevent scratching your Volvo. When you are finished washing your vehicle, make sure to wash your mitt in the washing machine to ensure that is it completely clean. Make sure when rinsing your vehicle off, go from top to bottom. This ensures that the soap is running downwards and will help you clean it off better. Dry off your Volvo with a micro fiber towel or a squeegee/water blade. Then you can move on to waxing, cleaning your headlights with a headlight restoration kit, and then lastly, cleaning your glass. Make sure you are leaving your glass till last! Use a cleaner with no ammonia and a microfiber cloth to scrub both the inside and outside of your windows.

Although this is a few hours of work, detailing and caring for your Volvo yourself can save you thousands each year! Further, it protects and lengthens the life of your automobile investment.

When should you replace your vehicle’s air filter?

Air Filter

When the airflow in your vehicle is significantly blocked, it’s time to replace your vehicle’s air filter. A clogged filter results in lousy fuel economy and subpar performance. It’s crucial to replace your air filter before it completely compromises airflow, but it’s also beneficial to have a slightly dirty air filter to block out tiny particles. So, if you’re wondering how often you should change your air filter or when to change your air filter, All Star Volvo of Baton Rouge is here with the answers!

Every vehicle’s maintenance schedule is different, but on average, Volvo suggests your vehicle’s air filter should be changed every 20,000. Every vehicle is different and some can go longer than others, but you also need to take into consideration how much you’re driving, and what your driving conditions are. If you’re driving on the highway every day for work or school, then your vehicle’s air filter won’t have to be replaced until you hit 20,000. But if you’re driving on dirt roads and gravel, then you will probably need to replace your vehicle’s air filter every 12,000-15,000 miles. If you’re still unsure about when you should replace your vehicle’s air filter, you can schedule a maintenance appointment and have one of our highly trained technicians take a look at it!

You can schedule a service appointment online 24/7 here.
