Keeping Your Car Clean in the Cold

Posted: Updated:

As our winter continues you may be noticing your car getting more and more dirty, with all that salt and winter grime.

However, washing your car in subzero weather can be a challenge. If you ignore washing off all that salt it can start to deteriorate your car.

Rust buildup, paint decay, even wheel well damage can start to occur on your vehicle. That's why it's recommended to get your car washed in the winter months and choose an indoor facility.

Since most car washes are closed in the winter, an indoor facility will allow your car to be washed and cleaned without freezing up. Although, the experts at Don's Car Wash in Fargo advise having your car washed after it's been warmed up for 10-15 minutes.

Also, about 10 minutes after you go through the car wash, make sure to open and close your doors and windows to ensure movement in the joints of the car. These steps will help prevent parts of your car from freezing.

Don's Car Wash has two locations in Fargo, 2727 13th Avenue South and 2500 52nd Avenue South.
