All auto interior detailing services include a thorough vacuuming and air purging to remove dirt, dust and debris. All mirrors and windows are thoroughly cleaned. It is a complex operation that requires multiple steps. Interior detailing takes longer than standard exterior detailing. The following are 4 major tips and tricks of interior detailing….
Whether your pet only rides in your car occasionally, goes to work with you every day, or you consider yourself the proud parent of a furbaby that rides along wherever you go, pet hair in your car can be a problem. The job of pet hair removal can be improved with some kind of device or tool to help grab the pet hairs and pull them out to the carpet fibers. Several devices can be of help, including gloves with a special rubberized hand, a brush with rubber bristles, a rubbery pet hair sponge and the pumice block. Rake the pet hair toward you with one of the devices in one hand and the hose of the vacuum in the other. As the pet hair is loosened by the raking the vacuum sucks away the hair. These devices will help remove pet hair much faster than a vacuum alone. Removal of pet hair is usually not included in the regular interior detailing cost. The removal of excessive pet hair will cause the cost of the interior cleaning to be increased.
Carpets in automobiles are different to carpets in any other location because they can be awkward to clean in a cramped space. Luckily, as professionals, this is what we expect to encounter in our everyday work. A hot water extractor is the most effective way to deep clean carpeting. The heated water of a high quality extractor should be enough to rinse the soil and clean chemicals from the carpet. Carpet cleaned with extractors will require additional drying time. Lightly soiled carpets and mats can be successfully cleaned using the same techniques, only substituting a dry vapor steam machine for the extractor and will have a short drying time.
Move Your Seats to the Extreme Positions
When the seats are moved, make sure that the seat tracks are wiped with a utility towel. Make sure the area between the front seats and the center console are clean. This seems to be a universally common place missed. Nowadays back seats are movable. The crease area behind the seat back could have a collection of debris. If the rear seat bottoms pull up or forward, make sure they are moved and the exposed area cleaned. The rear section of an SUV often has several compartments under the floor. Make sure they are checked, vacuumed, and wiped.
The hard plastic and vinyl surfaces of the car are generally easy to clean. However if marks are on these surfaces cannot be removed try to use isopropy alcohol. With careful use it will effectively remove shoe scuffs and similar marks.
As you can see, interior detailing is a multiple step operation. It involves several chemicals and numerous pieces of equipment tools and techniques. Professionals can make the job easier for you and save you the time and frustration of doing it yourself.
