When it comes to ensuring that your car remains in pristine condition, it's not just the outside of your car that you should look after. The inside matters too and is just as important as the exterior.
After all, it's incredibly easy for our vehicles to succumb to everyday wear and tear, especially if they are used on a daily basis with muddy shoes, kid's sticky fingers, motorway lunch pit stops, and long family journeys are put into the mix.
Here, we explore why your car interior is just as important as the exterior and offer some advice to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.
Why is the interior of your car important?
It's extremely important that you maintain and care for the interior of your car. If it is left unmanaged, it can cause your car to decrease in value and can have a significant impact on the overall condition of your vehicle.
One of the main problems caused by not giving the interior of your car the TLC it deserves is that a build-up of dust particles containing grit and chemicals can eat away at the surfaces, causing long term damage that cannot be rectified or easily fixed.
It's important to recognise the benefits and importance of keeping your car interior in pristine, showroom condition.
How can you look after your car interior?
There are several ways to look after your car interior, such as:
Investing in fabric protection
Perfect for hard-wearing fabrics, leathers and plastics, fabric protectors are compounds that have been developed to coat the fibres of the upholstery with an invisible resin-based material. This protects it from everyday wear and tear, food, drinks, pets and kid's sticky fingers.
Carbase's Safeguard Paint Protection also includes the application of upholstery protection.
No one particularly enjoys vacuuming but it's essential if you stand any chance of staying on top of those pesky dust particles. You should get into the habit of vacuuming your vehicle as often as possible, taking care to vacuum seats, rear space and the car boot.
Steam mats and carpets
Sometimes it's not enough to just scrub down your car mats and carpets - at times they need a good old steam clean to lift stubborn dirt and grime. Steam cleaning is also a great way to tackle stains and blemishes that will not lift easily.
There are several car glass cleaners that have been designed to leave your car glass windows and windscreen gleaming. After all, when driving any distance, your visibility should always be a top priority and something that should not take a back seat.
Wipe down dashboards
Finally, you should also make sure that you give your dashboards a good wipe down too, as these are prone to accumulating lots of dust particles quickly. If you stay on top of this cleaning task, it's usually light work.
Oh, and don't forget to give your car a spritz of air freshener when you are finished to ensure that it smells showroom fresh.
