There are few things as satisfying as a bright and shiny, newly cleaned vehicle. Still, it can be difficult to find the time to keep your car sparkling like new -- especially if you have a lengthy commute or live in a dusty area. Here are a few tips to make it easier to ward off the dust and dirt.

Always Wax Your Vehicle

Waxing doesn't just make your car shine -- it also makes it harder for dust to cling to your car. Even better, it protects your car from damage over time. This is especially important if you live around salt water or if you frequently drive over sand or abrasive dirt. Waxing your vehicle by hand is often more effective than running it through a car wash, and can also be beneficial because you'll notice any scratches and dents that need to be repaired. 

Keep the Interior and Exterior Covered

Many people have made it a habit to keep their garage for storage and to leave their car exposed to the elements. A cheap car cover might be all that's needed to keep the worst of the dirt and debris away from your car -- in addition to protecting it from unexpected weather conditions, such as hail. Keeping it covered also protects against sun damage, which will lighten and crack an interior over time. This goes for the interior, too: invest in seat covers and you'll never have to worry about seat damage again.

Cut Down on Clutter

Keeping a trash bag inside your car and emptying it out on a regular basis is one of the best ways to prevent trash from accumulating. Many people treat their car like the inside of a pocket or a purse -- as a catch all for anything they happen to be carrying. But over time, this clutter can easily attract pests and make it harder to keep the upholstery clean.

A good detailing every once in a while is an excellent way to make sure your car stays looking like new. Making sure your car is clean isn't just about appearances -- a clean car will also experience less wear-and-tear and thus need less frequent repairs. But don't worry; if you do need repairs, the experts at Mobile Install have you covered!
