Living in a beautiful area like Delray Beach, Florida, has some significant advantages. You get to enjoy beautiful weather for much of the year and have easy access to the ocean. Unfortunately, living so close to the beach can harm your car as well. Here are a few steps you should take to protect your used luxury car and clean it after a trip to the beach.

Cover your car

The long hours of sunshine and salty sea air can cause your vehicle to deteriorate faster than in other areas of the country. To help combat this, you should keep your vehicle covered as much as possible. Park in a garage or consider getting a car cover to protect your car.

Wash and wax

Further protect your vehicle from salt by washing it frequently. Scrub the exterior with soapy water, being sure to reach the undercarriage. You should also consider waxing it at least once a month to keep it looking great for longer.

Keep up with maintenance

Along with affecting the exterior, salt can also lead to rust in the metal components of your vehicle. You should have your vehicle serviced at the dealership on a routine schedule to ensure everything is in good working order.
