What are some good practices for maintaining my car in TCC apartments?

Keeping up with regular, professional maintenance on your car is the most important thing for staying safe and lengthening the life of your car. However, there are many other things you can do on your own to keep your car in excellent shape. Below are a few ways to look after your car after the move.

  • Trash and other items: If you want a fresh-smelling, bug-free car, getting rid of your trash and other perishable items is mandatory. It is best to avoid eating in your car if you are very worried about accidental spills and stains. However, you can still eat food carefully by laying down napkins and throwing everything away immediately. Even empty bags and used napkins can attract bugs, like ants, that may be difficult to get rid of later. Never leave paper cups with drinks in the cup holder or you'll be left with a sticky mess seeping through the paper. If you're worried about bugs in your apartment, you can find TCC apartments with pest control available.
  • Seat protectors: Even the most careful owners can be left with scuffed or stained car seats after long term use. To avoid the wear and tear on your car, consider buying seat protectors for both the back and front seats. Ideally, seat protectors should cover the seat as well as the back portion. Washing car seat covers is a lot easier than attempting to clean dirt and spills directly from the car seat.
