Benefits of a clean vehicle

  • Better driver mental health – Being in a clean environment can make a driver feel more organized and have an overall happier experience in the vehicle
  • A longer vehicle life – Cleaning the exterior and engine of the vehicle can reduce build-up and corrosion
  • Safer driving – Obstructions and distractions are everywhere in a messy vehicle and can create dangerous driving conditions
  • Better driver physical health – A lot of dust and bacteria build up within a messy vehicle can cause drivers to be more susceptible to illness
  • Improved fuel economy – An excess of build-up on the exterior of a vehicle can create more drag on the vehicle, causing the engine to work harder

With so many benefits to having a clean vehicle it is hard to argue against keeping your work vehicle clean. Using these tips, we can help improve the overall health for both drivers and vehicles.
