The spread of COVID-19 put an end to its existence. Staying at home is the safest option now that the closure has been implemented across the country. You're probably exercising or stretching to stay fit and ready for your post-closure routine. Similarly, regular maintenance is required for your parked car. A long period of inactivity can damage your car's tires, engine and fuel tank, among other components. During closure, follow these car maintenance guidelines to keep your vehicle in good condition of repair, brilliance and efficiency.

Tips for maintaining cars during closure

1. Put your car in a safe place:

During closure, this is your main goal. Make sure the car is parked in a shaded place. If you don't have a designated parking area, protect your car with a nice hood. Your car's paint can be damaged by the sun and bird waste. During long periods of parking, the hood also prevents the accumulation of dried leaves or flowers.

2. Car battery maintenance:

When the car is not in use, the charge in the battery is exhausted. To avoid emptying the battery, start your car every three days. To make sure the battery is fully charged, turn on the engine for at least 10-15 minutes. If you can't start your car frequently, the battery must be separated from the negative station, according to automakers. This will ensure your car's battery is charged to the point where you don't have to turn it on when you're ready to go.


3. Handbrake should not be used:

If you won't use the car for long, don't use the waiting brake or handbrake because it may become blurry. You can either leave the car in the gear or use a wheel stopper such as stone, wooden mass or bricks to prevent it from moving from its parked position. Leave the car in Parking Mode or P mode for automatic transmission cars.

4. Keep your car clean:

Washing your car regularly, whether during closure or not, can prevent dust, bird waste, dried leaves, bugs and other pollutants from accumulating. It's also good to clean your car during the shutdown. However, cleaning the interior is as important as cleaning the outside. To get rid of any dust or debris, turn on the air conditioner and fan when you start the car regularly. Make the cabin free of fast food and leftovers. Bacteria can grow after a long period of storage when there are food molecules present.

Take away

Even a year later, India is still dealing with the COV outbreak. However, we must all do our part to be safe and careful and follow the protocol while helping people in need in any way possible. The virus has thrown a curveball into the public health system, and we must do everything in our power to combat it. During the closure, you can check your window to see your car parked like a naughty soldier. Waiting for you to get out, or, more importantly, become your first line of defense in an emergency.
