Tips on How to Keep Your Car’s Interior Clean

Brought to you by Dave Smith Nissan

We all spend far more time in our cars than we would like to admit, so let’s get them in tip-top shape. The staff at Dave Smith Nissan put together some tips to care for your vehicle’s interior.

What should I clean on my car every week?

Here is a list of items in your car that you should clean once a week.
  • First, wipe off all vinyl and leather with a damp microfiber towel. It will leave the surface lint and dust-free.
  • Next, you’re going to want to take out your floor mats. Make sure you shake out any dirt or debris.
  • Now, let’s pick up the trash, you know, all those coffee cups you have collected over the week throw them out.
  • Lastly, wipe off your windows and rearview mirror with a towel and glass cleaner.

How often should I apply a UV protectant to my car?

In this section, we will discuss what you should clean monthly. These steps will take a little more time than a quick wipe-down.
  • Frist is vacuuming the interior carpet, seats, and console. This helps extend the life of your carpets and seats.
  • Apply a UV protectant to all vinyl services such as the dash, tops of door panels, and console. Make sure to focus on the areas that get the most sun exposure.

How do I properly vacuum the carpets of my car?

Best ways to vacuum your car
  • Start by taking out all floor mats. Shake off any loose dirt. Use the upholstery tool or the bare hose end to vacuum the carpets forcefully.
  • Move the front seats as far forward as possible to work on the rear carpets. Use the vacuum’s crevice attachment to get into the seats’ cracks, between the seats, and tight carpeted areas.
  • When you are vacuum, the rear carpet, make sure to vacuum under the front seats and around the seat tracks. You can use the round dust brush tool to clean the door panels.
  • When you move to the front carpets, move the front seats all the way forward. Use the crevice tool again to vacuum the seats’ cracks, between the seats and carpeted areas, and around the pedals.
  • When vacuuming the carpet, use your free hand and hit the carpet just ahead of your vacuum hose or tool. This will loosen up and dirty that is lodged deep in the carpet and allow you to vacuum it up.

What is a cabin air filter?

The cabin air filter is also called a car air conditioner filter. This filter is in charge of cleaning the air circulated throughout your vehicle and is one of the most overlooked neglected filters in a car. A dirty air conditioner filter will not only hinder the HVAC system in your car from working efficiently, but it can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria, which will be released back into the air. The service team at Dave Smith Nissan will happily replace your cabin air filter.
