The 5 Point Spring Cleaning Ritual

With a long winter behind us and with that dreary envelope of smog that covered our city, it’s springtime now or the time to wipe away the grime and make your car look like new.


  1. Declutter

    This is going to be your first step. Look out under the seats – you will probably find wrappers, tissues, coins or even the memory stick you’ve been looking for! Then since the big boot tends to act as a general storage facility housing everything you once needed but don’t anymore – clean it all out. Not only will it free up some room to store things when you’ll really need the space, but will also lighten the load improving your vehicle’s fuel economy rating. Clutter-free spaces give you clarity. Zen up your car – be more with less!

  2. Car Wash

    Given the level of pollution, pressure washing the exterior of your car to remove all dust particles and grime that there might be is the second step. At this step, take out the rubber mats from inside and hose them down as well with the pressure washer to really cut through the build up of dirt it has suffered.
    Undertake a car wash with foam liquid gun and quality cleaning materials (We recommend 3M, Wurth, or an equivalent) for that immaculate shine. Or as a general rule, every 3 months let GoMechanic give your car the wash of it’s life.

One of the things most motorists pay little attention to are the headlights and taillights. Come spring, the headlights and taillights on most vehicles are pretty filthy and foggy. As long as the lights are on and a bulb isn’t burnt out, many don’t worry about them. Yet you will agree headlights and taillights are extremely important in terms of visibility at night, and for safety – yours and everyone else’s. Taking a warm, damp cloth and giving the headlights on the front of the car and the taillights on the back a wipe in spring and anytime of the year for that matter – can do wonders. The range of the light coming from your car will improve, and so will your vehicle’s visibility at night. And when we give your car an exterior wash, these lights are taken care of too. Also, if you find your headlights need a restoration, we’re here to help.

3. Exterior Polishing and Rubbing

Minor scratches, sand/dust abrasions, the Sun – all contribute to making your car’s paint look dull and lose lustre. Finish off the wash with a car wax. This step is very important as it seals the paint, adds a shiny coat, and repels water beads eliminating troublesome water spots.

Pamper your car to GoMechanic’s Exterior Polishing and Rubbing package to make her shines like new. Our 4 Step process even includes the car wash we just spoke about.

  • Car wash
  • Rub-in compound to remove minor scratches
  • Wax polish application to remove dullness
  • Machine polishing to bring out that sparkling shine. To top it further, we have also included ‘Tyre Dressing and Alloy Cleaning’ service in the package.  Now that’s a steal!
  1. Interior Detail Cleaning

    It’s all in the detail. The fourth step of spring – cleaning your car is to clean the interior details. As with the exterior, the interior suffers too over time – car mats are filled with dirt; seats and carpets are covered in stains, grime and microbes; while your dashboard is concealed in a layer of dust. Make sure your floors are vacuumed and use quality upholstery cleaners to thoroughly clean the fabrics and carpet.

Or choose GoMechanic’s Interior Detail Cleaning service for vacuum cleaning seats, flooring, inside door panels, AC duct, and polishing the dashboard to make sure your car is clean inside as it is outside; and is completely disinfected.

5. Joyride

After your car is all fresh and squeaky-clean, it’s time for the springtime drive. For nothing but the joy of it, get on the road, drive into spring with a sleek and shiny car for sake of the sunny days ahead, and feel the breeze.

Your blankets have been stored away for the next winter, the sweaters and jackets are deep in the closet and your wardrobe has a new collection already, but if your car hasn’t been spring cleaned; you’re not yet ready to welcome the new season.

The beginning of a new season is always exciting for us all, make it for your car too. While we mark our Spring with Holi which is around the corner, give your car the due holiday with some spring-cleaning. Don’t procrastinate.

Don’t procrastinate. Book a Comprehensive Cleaning package with us to spring-clean your car, and save up to Rs. 400 against market price.
