The Ultimate Spring Car Detailing Guide: Tips for a Fresh and Clean Vehicle

As the days get longer and the weather warms up, it’s the perfect time to give your vehicle some much-needed attention after the harsh winter months. At Matt’s Automotive Service Center, we understand the importance of maintaining a clean and fresh vehicle, especially as spring brings new adventures and road trips. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate spring car detailing guide to help you get your car looking its best for the season ahead.


  1. Interior Cleaning: Start by removing any clutter and debris from the interior of your car. Vacuum the floors, seats, and upholstery to remove dirt, crumbs, and pet hair. If your pet rides with you to the lake or on other adventures, pay special attention to removing any pet hair and odors.
  2. Deep Cleaning: Use a gentle cleaner to wipe down surfaces such as the dashboard, door panels, and center console. For stubborn stains, consider using a specialized automotive cleaner. Don’t forget to clean the windows inside and out for maximum visibility.
  3. Odor Elimination: If your pet accompanies you on trips, odors can linger in your car. Consider using an odor eliminator spray or placing an air freshener to keep your car smelling fresh and clean.
  4. Exterior Washing: Give your car a thorough wash to remove dirt, salt, and grime accumulated during the winter months. Use a car wash soap and a microfiber sponge or mitt to prevent scratching the paint. Pay extra attention to areas prone to buildup, such as the wheels, tires, and undercarriage.
  5. Protective Measures: Apply a coat of wax or sealant to protect your car’s paint from UV rays, road debris, and environmental contaminants. This will also help maintain the shine and appearance of your vehicle throughout the season.
