Because the inside of a car has so many more surfaces and textures than the exterior, car interior cleaning is a relatively big job that requires a time commitment of up to a few hours if you plan to do it yourself. Whether you are interested in a simple clean car interior or something as thorough as a car interior detailing, there are a few things you should be aware of that will help you do a more satisfying job. The following tips will give you some pointers that may help you do a better job cleaning the inside of your car.
The first thing you should do before you even start the actual cleaning part is to collect everything loose in your car into a garbage bag. This will keep you from having to constantly move things around while you’re cleaning. Once you are done with the rest of the cleaning process, you can sift through the stuff in the bag for things you want to keep in your car and throw the rest away.
After you are done taking everything out of your car, the next thing you should do is vacuum, preferably with one that has a hose like a shop vac. Vacuuming is an important step because it removes excess dirt before the cleaning products are applied. Vacuum both the floor and the seats.
Wash hard surfaces first; they are the easiest to clean so it is nice to get the dash board and windows out of the way in the beginning. Also, that way you clean the fabric after it absorbs the drips from the hard surfaces around it.
