Here at our DC area Chevy dealership, we have plenty of folks come to see us while looking for the perfect rough and ready pickup. Chevrolet’s legendary ½-ton truck, the Silverado, is up to just about any task you throw at it, and the 2017 model is the best yet!
Of course, a hard day’s work can leave you and your truck looking a bit worse for wear. While the Pohanka Chevrolet team can’t do much about your muddy boots, we can certainly shed some light on keeping your truck bed clean!
DC area 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 will find that the bed takes more abuse than just about any other part of the truck, but properly cleaning your truck bed on occasion will go a long way toward protecting it against premature wear and tear.
If you have a mat in your bed, take it out to clean it separately. This will allow you to clean both the bed and the mat more thoroughly. Be sure to let them dry completely before putting the mat back in.
Before you start washing the bed, it’s a good idea to sweep out any dirt and debris. Dirt will just turn to mud when you spray the hose on it, and debris like leaves and pebbles will block your bed’s drainage holes and need to be fished out, anyway. Sweeping first will streamline the process.
Once the big debris has been removed, you can hose things down and hit them with soapy water the way you would with the rest of your truck. If you have a spray-in or roll-on bed liner, you can go ahead and take a scrub brush to things for a thorough cleaning. If your bed is the original paint, we suggest cleaning it the same way you would clean the exterior, including a coat of protective wax when you’re done.
The experts at our detailing center can handle the entire process for you, too, if you’d rather kick back and relax when the workday is done. From the cabin to the exterior to the bed of your truck, we’ll always leave your vehicle looking great!
