How to Clean and Care for Your Vehicle’s Interior

car detailing and car care

Between your Sarasota commute, trips with the family, errands, and outing with pets, your vehicle’s interior can take a beating. Fortunately, there are things you can do to limit the damage and keep your vehicle looking, and smelling, good longer – if you’re willing to put in the effort, that it.

Car Interior Cleaning

Keeping the mess to a minimum can help to reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle’s interior. But if you have kids (or pets, or a life for that matter) messes are bound to happen. If that’s the case, or you just have too much of Tampa inside your vehicle, a few steps – and some elbow grease – can help put things right:

  • Remove Clutter: Handy organizers can keep clutter to a minimum and make cleaning up when there is a mess faster.
  • Remove Mats: Your mats protect the carpet, but debris can get caught beneath them. Take them out and give them a good cleaning before you vacuum the rest of the car.
  • Vacuum Thoroughly: Use a multi-purpose vacuum (they have better suction) to remove dirt, sand, fries, and other bits of debris.
  • Remove Stains: There are plenty of spot removers and carpet cleaners on the market that does a good job. Contact a detailer or your local service center to discover the best car interior cleaning products for your vehicle.
  • Clean and Treat the Glass: Dirty glass is not only unsightly, but it’s also a hazard. Clean the glass with an approved cleaner and, if you have issues with fogging glass, treat it with an anti-fog product that will keep it clear and improve visibility.
  • Seek Professional Help: Professionals have the equipment to steam clean your car interior and make it shine, without damaging sensitive electronics, and can even offer specials on services to make it more affordable.
  • Protect Surfaces: Once clean, you can protect your vehicle with surface treatments, floor mats, and seat covers that not only improve your vehicle’s appearance but also prevent future damage.

This guide will help you keep your car’s interior in tip-top shape, so you can worry about more important things than where that funny smell is coming from.
