Your car is with you through all the milestones in your life. Whether you’re cruising the beach or commuting to work, your vehicle is often where your memories are made and it is important to keep it looking its best.

A cleaner interior

Cluttered vehicles tend to be less comfortable and can cause distractions while driving. A clean interior removes odors and makes the ride more enjoyable and reduces stress. This can be especially important for drivers who spend a lot of time behind the wheel. 

Retaining your vehicle’s value

When you regularly get your carpets and upholstery cleaned, you preserve the materials. Over time, sun exposure, water damage, abrasions, and harsh cleaning products can wear down fabrics, leather, and vinyl. Keeping the inside of your vehicle in good condition can save you on repair and replacement costs down the road. 

A stain-repelling layer

Many commercial professionals use a carpet and upholstery sealant to protect your vehicle’s fabric after it has been thoroughly cleaned. These products create a flexible hydrophobic layer over the carpet, which will prevent most future spills from penetrating the fabric and soaking in like they normally do. 

The exceptions would be protein-based stains (blood, milk, and sweat) and magic marker ink, which require special products to break down the dye and solvent. 

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, consider trying the new steam cleaners on the market. They utilize the power of hot pressurized steam to lift stains, eliminate odors, and kill germs, mold, and mildew. They also leave the fabric almost completely dry, which cuts down on soaking and sogginess.
