Ideas on cleaning the inside of your RV have been mentioned here previously, so now we'll move on to your motorhome's exterior. It's a good idea to give your RV a thorough washing a couple of times a year, even if it's been covered up all winter. Taking the time to do so will make your RV look like new and give it a fresh appearance for the upcoming camping and travel season. There is a vast number of cleaners and cleaning accessories
available to help you get the job done.
Like cleaning a room in your house, cleaning your RV from top to bottom is the most logical approach. Any dirt and grime falling downward won't contaminate a surface that's already been cleaned. To start, there are
rubber roof cleaners
available from Dicor that can get rid of any dirt build-up on your roof. Using a roof cleaner is also the first step if you wish to go further and use a roof coating for additional protection. For the large surface areas on the sides of your RV various cleaners can make the process faster. The RV Wash & Wax solution from Thetford saves you a step by washing and waxing your coach at the same time. It's safe to use on different types of materials and won't harm any decals. It gives the outside a cleaning while also providing a protective finish. When access to water is limited, cleaners such as the Quick & Easy Wash
from Protect All make it possible to wash your vehicle without rinsing. Simply wipe it dry after washing an area to save on water and time.
When you have a more specialized area to clean, it's best to have the cleaner intended for that specific purpose. For example,
when black streaks are a problem, cleaners like Streak-X are made precisely to take care of that issue. The formula is designed to get rid of streaks caused by smoke, tar or ordinary travel. That's only the tip of the iceberg. There are cleaners for awnings, treatments for tires, polishes for metal finishes, as well as all-surface cleaners that save time and effort by cleaning and waxing several types of surface materials.
It doesn't stop with just cleaners and solutions. You'll need the tools necessary to properly apply them. We offer a large selection of brushes and mops, including those with extension poles for those hard to reach areas. They are made from materials that can completely clean the surface without damaging it. Flow Thru brushes make it easy to apply soap or water while scrubbing the surface at the same time. Squeegees will take care of eliminating leftover streaks, especially on windows. We also carry microfiber towels for detail work. If you have any questions on any of these products, please feel free to
