The winter months seem to have crept up on us so quickly. To be fair, we have been a tad preoccupied with other things, like the ever-present pandemic. But as the temperature drops and the weather changes, our vehicles get dirtier and dirtier.
Fleet cleaning is essential all year round. But itís definitely needed more often during the winter months. Are you having your fleet cleaned enough? Or should you be cleaning it more often? We are here to answer these questions for you!
Regular Fleet Cleaning
Car manufacturers recommend cleaning vehicles once a week. However, when it comes to fleet cleaning, once a week isnít always possible. Your fleet likely spends a lot of time on the road. And cleaning as regularly as once a week can be an inconvenience for business (and for your drivers).
If your fleet is out on the road full time, we would recommend having your fleet cleaned twice per month. Especially during the winter months when the rain, snow and wind make the roads particularly dirty. Having your fleet cleaned every two weeks will remove the build up of dirt, dust, grime and oil that has built up whilst on the road.
In dryer months you may be able to reduce the number of times your fleet is cleaned. If you have your fleet professionally cleaned, ensure you are opting for a company that offers flexibility. If you have vehicles that arenít on the road quite as often, they likely wonít need cleaning as regularly as others.
Importance Of Regular Fleet Cleaning
Regularly cleaning your fleet is not only vital for the vehicles, but it is also important for your business! Your fleet is seen by thousands of people, including potential customers, every single day.
Keeping your fleet clean ensures that your company information and logo is always visible. It also improves brand awareness and demonstrates professionalism. Regular fleet cleaning will remove grime build up and prevent rust or corrosion from harmful corrosives, such as salt.
If your vehicles arenít professionally cleaned, the build-up of dirt can damage the body of the vehicle as well as exposed mechanical components. This will help lower fleet maintenance costs, which can spiral if you take your eye off the ball! It also increases safety for your drivers by ensuring all windshield, headlights and mirrors are clearly visible.
