Performance Body Repair | Car Care Tips

Performance  Body Repair is an auto body shop near Hebron and Florence, KY that  cares about your vehicle, even after we've completed our collision  repair work.

That's why we've compiled a list of some very helpful tips to keep your car looking as good as the day you drove it off our lot.

The Interior of Your Vehicle

• Vacuum regularly to remove dirt, salt, leaves and other items that can damage carpets and floor mats.

•  Leather interiors should be cleaned with leather products that are  designed to penetrate the pores – avoid high-alkaline content which can  bleach the color.

• Use only upholstery cleaners designed for cars, not household cleaners.

•  Use a vinyl protectant regularly to prevent fading and cracking and  apply protectant with a rag to avoid spraying directly on the dash.

• Vinyl dashes can also be cleaned using furniture polishes like Lemon Pledge, which leaves a nice smell, too.

The Exterior of Your Vehicle

• Avoid extreme heat and cold by keeping your car parked in the shade or a garage.

• Avoid gravel roads when possible, which can cause paint chipping.

• Do not park directly under trees, which may drip sap onto your vehicle.

•  Immediately rinse gasoline, oil, antifreeze, and transmission fluid and  windshield solvent spills off your finish – but do not wipe.

• Flush dirt, bugs and leaves from the front of your radiator with a brush and garden hose to prevent cooling system problems.

•  Remove leaves from your car as soon as possible to prevent the release  of acid that can permanently stain your automobile finish.

• Avoid brush-style car washes as they collect dirt which may scratch the car’s finish.

• Wash in straight lines with overlapping strokes to reduce the standing water you need to dry off.

•  Be sure to wash the inside bottom edge of doors, lift gate, hood and  trunk to eliminate the trapped dirt and moisture that can cause  premature rusting.

• Rinse dirt from moving parts, such as suspension components.

• After driving in salty conditions, always wash your car to prevent corrosion, fading and rust.

• Get a complete vehicle detail at least once a year.

• Do not “dry wipe” your car as it may cause scratching.

• Don’t place grocery bags, luggage or other objects on the car top or trunk.

• Use the lowest setting in do-it-yourself car washes to avoid “blasting” grit into the car’s finish.

•  Never wax your car in direct sunlight to prevent the surface  temperature of your car from causing the chemicals in the wax to damage  your finish.

• Look for car wax, such as Meguiar's wax products, which is safe for your car’s finish.

• Avoid washing your car in the sun.

• Rinse off as much dirt as possible before washing.

• Clean tires first then clean wheels to eliminate brake dust and road salt corrosion.

• Never use household soaps or detergents.
