A car that’s free of clutter, dust and debris looks better and lasts longer. Here are a few tips for cleaning and revitalizing the look and feel of your used car.
Care For Upholstery
Your car seats will look like new after a thorough vacuuming and wash using a shampoo that’s specifically designed for car upholstery. Pay particular attention to the headrests. If there is a stain that you cannot remove manually, use a portable spot cleaning machine.
Wash The Mats
Over time, dirt, mud and water will soak into your car’s floor mats. If you ignore this mess, the appearance of your interior will suffer. Pull out the mats, apply shampoo, and use a power washer to blast away the grime. If your cleaning efforts are not enough to renew the mats, consider replacing them.
Wipe Down Surfaces
Wipe down your steering wheel, dashboard, cupholders and other hard surfaces, including your door handles with a cleaning solution or wipes safe for car interiors. Use appropriate wipes to wipe down leather seats.
Clear The Air
The cabin air filter absorbs dust and smoke, and over time, it can become overloaded and ineffective. A new air filter will help improve your cabin’s air quality. You can replace the filter yourself or trust the job to the experts at Steve Austin’s Auto Group.
