Many people love having a nice and tidy vehicle and work hard to keep the inside of their vehicle clean. Keeping the inside of your vehicle clean can be a major challenge. Just like your home’s furniture, the upholstery and carpeting inside a vehicle can collect dirt, hair and develop stains. Carpet Dry-Tech will share a few tips on how to keep the inside of your vehicle clean and when to seek professional vehicle interior cleaning services.
Vacuum Car Interior
When you need to clean the inside of your vehicle, the best place to start is by vacuuming the upholstery and the carpets. Remove all of the seat covers and floor mats from the vehicle. With the vacuum of your choice, you will want to start with the seats and work your way down to the floor. Like vacuuming your carpets at home, you will want to vacuum the upholstery and carpet in multiple directions to loosen and remove more of the dirt. You may find you will need to use a number of attachments to get into the tight spaces inside the vehicle.
Clean Dirty Seat Covers & Mats
Make sure that you take the time to also clean all your seat covers and mats. If approved by the manufacturer, you can wash the seat covers in the washing machine. When preparing the vehicle to be vacuumed you can put the seat covers in the wash while you work on cleaning the inside. Before you begin cleaning the inside of the vehicle, have your mats already cleaned. Mats will vary in material. Some material may contain a carpet like material or be plastic or rubber. When cleaning the mats, use the proper method for the material.
Get Stains Out of Carpet & Car Seats
If there are stains on the seats or on the carpet, you will want to clean them after you have thoroughly vacuumed. You can use a commercial upholstery cleaner to treat the stains. You can also use warm water with a few drops of liquid dish soap and blot at the stain in the vehicle. When cleaning the stain in the vehicle, avoid scrubbing as you can make the stain worse or ruin your upholstery altogether. After cleaning the stain and it has dried out, you will want to vacuum the surface to restore the carpet or upholstery texture. Once the carpets and seats are dry you can then put the seat covers and mats back inside the vehicle.
How Often Should You Clean Your Car
To maintain a clean interior it is recommended that you create a schedule and have the vehicle cleaned accordingly. By maintaining a routine, the inside of the vehicle will always be clean. Every person will have different hobbies, habits and family sizes that will determine your cleaning schedule.
