You may know, that this fantastic festival is all about celebrating with friends and family but because of the current circumstances, this turned out to be difficult.

Even though everyone is super cautious when handling crackers they still can harm your vehicle. There is always a constant risk of fire and things can escalate to worse very fast. So, here are 5 essential Post-Diwali car care tips you need to consider.
Avoid Car Covers
Want to save your vehicle from dust and debris? well Covering it up with a car cover is a really good idea. But near Diwali is it safe to do so? Of course not. The covers might save the car from light rain and splashes. But the cover will not be able to save your car from a fire. Even putting the cover on and off from the car on regular basis can cause several small scratches. This can lead the car’s paint to fade.
Everyone doesn’t have a privilege of covered parking or garage. So, we recommend for a day or two make arrangements for a covered space for your vehicle. Diwali is all about lighting the skies with sky shots and rockets, sure selling and bursting crackers is restricted but you never know. After all, saving the car is better than regret later.
