Your truck was a large investment in your financial security. Your truck not only gets you from point A to point B, but it helps you to earn a living. One of the simplest things that you can do to maintain your truck for the long haul is to keep it clean. Yes, it costs money to keep your truck clean; but it costs a whole heck of a lot more to repair or replace it.
Taking care of your truck with regular cleanings extends its road life. There are so many chemicals put on the roads today that are extremely corrosive to your truck. While it may be hard to think about in August, many truck drivers drove through treacherous weather conditions last winter. De-icing chemicals are put all over the roads throughout the country to try to prevent accidents on the highways. If you did not give your truck a thorough washing after the winter season, the chemicals that were on the road are still hanging out on the undercarriage of your truck. The longer those chemicals are there, the more damage they do.
Does washing your truck take time and cost a bit of money? Yes, it does.
Does maintaining your truck save you even more money and precious time in the long run? Most certainly.
Learning how to properly clean your truck’s engine, undercarriage, body, and wheels can help to save you thousands of dollars from your own pocket. Hiring someone else to wash your truck may cost you a bit more, but it can also save you thousands of dollars in repairs.
A clean truck also makes inspections a lot easier for you and CSA inspectors. Built-up grime can cause you or others to miss chaffing lines, cracked and damaged components, as well as electrical problems. A clean truck is an easy truck to inspect!
