Benefits of a Winter Detail

For some folks, it may seem like detail shops in the Pacific Northwest don’t have much to offer during the wet, cold winter months. Some might ask, ‘why get my car detailed for it to just get muddy again when the weather turns?’ If you’re also of this mindset, it’s time to consider the benefits of some very handy detail shop services, all of which are available here at Simply Clean Automotive in Bremerton, WA!

Why Get an Interior Detail in the Winter?

First off, let’s talk about the benefits of an interior detail during the winter season, as there are a couple worth mentioning. Of course, there’s the general benefit in appearance when you make the effort to keep your vehicle’s interior clean, but there’s also a couple other more practical benefits specific to Winter-time problems. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of an interior detail during the winter:

It Helps Keep Rodents and Other Critters Away!

As the weather gets colder, many small, warm-blooded creatures like mice and rats will be looking for warm shelter – and if that shelter provides a food source it’s all the more appealing to those crawly critters! That being said, if you have kids, tend to leave food in your vehicle, or eat in your vehicle from time to time, it’s worth getting a thorough interior detail done in the colder months to mitigate the risk of mice and other rodents being attracted to the tiny morsels and crumbs left behind in hard-to-see spaces.

Helpful Tip: Dryer Sheets!

Here’s an interesting fact for you: mice and other rodents can’t stand the odor of traditional dryer sheets! That’s right, the same product used to keep your clothing lint and wrinkle free can also double as mice repellant in your vehicle’s interior! After your next interior detail, take a few of these sheets and place them around the interior of your ride – tucked under the dash, in behind-the-seat pockets, between the seats – basically wherever you can fit them that a mouse might be deterred by its smell. You can ask our detail experts about a rodents repellant chemical for under your vehicle’s hood, too!

Mitigate Interior Wear & Tear

Another reason that makes a winter-detail worthwhile for your ride’s interior is the fact that it’ll help mitigate damage and wear from debris being brought into the vehicle and ground into the vinyl and cloth surfaces. Also worth mentioning is the wet, muddy dirt and plant material can make their way into spots you wouldn’t normally think of. Having these places thoroughly cleaned out by our detail team will help reduce the risk of mold and other bacteria developing in your ride, thus keeping you and your family healthier!

Why Get an Exterior Detail in the Winter?

Typically, when shopping around for an exterior detail, the number one thing on most folks’ minds is the gloss and shine of a finished paint correction and fresh polish. While that new-car-look is certainly something we strive for on every detail at Simply Clean Automotive, we’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t mention the benefits of a quality protective coating being applied afterward!

Presenting UndrDog Pro – Our Choice for Exterior Protection

If you’re looking to protect the exterior surface of your vehicle from the elements this winter, there’s few options out there that measure up to a professional application of UndrDog’s Pro paint protection product. Our trained detailers will expertly apply this protective coating to your vehicle’s surface after a careful paint correction process. Once applied and properly cured, the hydrophobic surface that UndrDog Pro creates will help protect your vehicle from sitting water and mud, as well as the micro-scratches that come with salted or snowy roads!
