Keeping Your Car Clean is More Important Than You Think

We all love our cars, right? Well, some of us more than others but our cars are an important part of our everyday life. They get us to and from school and work every day and they also have been a part of a lot of our life’s big moments! Here at Spieler’s Incorporated we love cars too, so in this week’s blog, we will explain why keeping your car clean is more important than you might think.


The car’s exterior is exposed to the elements of nature and easily gets dirty. Keeping the outside of your car clean is extremely important. Here are a few reasons why:

Preserve the Finish

Your vehicles finish has two layers. There is the paint and then the clear coat on top of the paint. The clear coat is there to give depth to the color as well as protect the cars paint. Dirt, grime, and bugs can wreak havoc on your cars finish. Keeping it clean will reduce the chances of scratches and splattered bugs from eating away at the finish.

Prevent Corrosion and Rust

Pay attention to wheel wells and the undercarriage of your car when you are cleaning. There are many gaps and areas that hold dirt and moisture. Making sure these areas are clean can prevent rust developing.

Better Fuel Mileage
Vehicles are designed to cut through the air with as least drag as possible. Dirt and mud can affect the car's design of air flow around your car.


Keeping your ride’s interior clean not only makes it look and feel good when you’re driving, it can also impact the resale value of your vehicle.

Prevent Wear and Tear

A clean interior can prolong the life of the materials. Cleaning spills out of the carpet, keeping the dash and seats free of dirt and dust will prolong the life of the material and prevent premature wear and tear.

Driver Safety

Have you ever had an object get under your feet while driving? This can be very dangerous! Keeping your floorboard free of trash can create safer driving conditions. Also, keeping windows clean will allow you to see out of your vehicle easier.

Your Health

Keeping your car’s interior clean can also be healthier for you. Wipe down areas that are often touched to prevent germs from spreading, especially if you have kids in the car. Also eliminating dust from accumulating in the car can help on your allergies.


Keeping your vehicle clean and properly maintained will pay off huge when it comes time to trade in your car. The dealership will see how well you have taken care of your car and they will not have to spend as much on reconditioning.
