Monsoon brings challenges for vehicle owners
Monsoon season brings many challenges for cars. During monsoon, your vehicle has to face excessive moisture, potholes, mud and rain showers. Increased humidity can affect the performance and shine of your car. As we move towards the departure of monsoon season in India, it has become important to take care of vehicles. We have brought for you some tips related to car care after monsoon. It is also very important to develop a car care routine after monsoon.
Clean the exterior parts of the car after monsoon
After enduring the muddy roads and heavy rains during monsoon, the exterior of your car gets covered with dirt and grime. Due to rain, the paint of the car has started peeling and rusting. It is very important to thoroughly clean exterior parts to preserve the paint and prevent rust. Wash your car with a pH-balanced car shampoo to gently remove dirt. Clean the accumulated mud and dirt from the inner parts of the wheels. After this, wax or sealant can also be used to protect the paint. Both these substances work to protect your vehicle from possible damage caused by rain water and dirt.
During the rainy season, people often do not pay attention to the tires of their vehicles, due to which the tires become weak. After the rainy season ends, it is very important to check the tires first. If the tires of your car are good, the performance of the car will be better. It may also happen that the tires of your car get worn out more during the rain, so if necessary, you can get them replaced. Also, don’t forget to check the condition and pressure of the spare tyre.
Clean and treat the interior
During monsoon, moisturization and humidity increases mold in the interior parts of the car. Before these problems worsen, you should thoroughly clean the interior of your car. Vacuum the seats, carpets and floor mats to remove any accumulated dirt and moisture. Mild cleaner can be used to wipe the dashboard, door panels and other surfaces. You can also use a special car interior cleaner to prevent odors and mildew.
It is very important to take measures to remove rust
It is not rocket science that moisturization itself causes rust and corrosion on vehicles. After the monsoon season is over, you can also check the rust in cars yourself. In places where rust has formed, rust remover or anti-rust spray can be used. Applying anti-rust coating can provide long-term protection from future rust. If any major repair is required to remove rust, it should be done by a motor mechanic.
Check electrical appliances
Today’s modern cars are equipped with electronics and electrical systems, which increases the risk of water damage to your car during monsoon. After the monsoon season is over, check all the lights including headlights, taillights, turn signals and brake lights. Make sure they are working properly and replace any worn out bulbs. Also, check the battery for corrosion and make sure it is securely fastened. Electrical problems can cause unexpected malfunctions and safety hazards. Therefore, it is very important to check it on time.
