RV,Recreational vehicles are some of the last assets that people enjoy cleaning, but nonetheless it is important that they receive the detailed care they deserve. RVs are expensive investments that require special treatment in order to maintain their value and appeal.
If you plan on selling your RV, then you’ll definitely benefit from keeping it in the best condition possible. Even if you never plan on selling your RV, you’ll still benefit from its great condition whenever you or your family uses it. No matter what you do, it’s important to not forget about detailing your RV and if you do it yourself it’s equally important to do a great job.
Storing an RV
The most important step in detailing an RV is how you store it as crazy as that may sound. If you store an RV outside for example, no amount of detailing will be able to reduce the amount of UV radiation damage and dust accumulation it receives. If you’re able to store your RV indoors, or underneath a cover, then it will make detailing and long term care that much easier.
Picking the Best Time to Clean Your RV
Whether you’re cleaning your RV yourself, or someone else is helping you do it, it’s important to avoid cleaning it in the middle of the day. This is when the sun is most powerful, which can cause water drops to evaporate and leave behind spots. By cleaning your RV in the morning or evening (before the sun sets completely) you’ll have plenty of light to work, but it won’t lead to spotting.
Here at The Best Detail, we work together as a team on all RV detailing projects. This ensures that we complete our work in a reasonable time and that we rinse off cleaning solutions multiple times.
RV Washing Tips
In order to avoid the rusting that can result from dust, dirt, and water contact with an RV, it’s important to wash your RV using a sprayer. Sprayers that utilize cleaning solutions or degreasing solutions are heavily recommended, since they will be able to remove the most amount of contaminants. And as always, remember to only use products that are designed for the surfaces you are applying them to. Don’t use fiberglass cleaning products on plastic and vice versa, because the results will be less than optimal.
Whether you’re just getting your RV ready for road trips, or you’re putting it away for the winter, it’s important to get it ready for whatever lies ahead. Here at The Best Detail we provide spring and fall cleaning packages which can get your RV ready for the road or for storage, as needed.
