Regular vacuuming and dusting of your car’s interior is the best way to keep it looking good.  However, surface cleaning alone is not enough.  Two to three times a year you will need to detail the upholstery to keep it looking its best. Untitled-1 Warning: Before using any product on your car’s fabric upholstery, carpet, leather or vinyl, test for color fading by cleaning a small, inconspicuous area.  Do not use the product if it adversely changes your fabric’s color or texture.


Proper Interior Detailing

Regular vacuuming and dusting of your car’s interior is the best way to keep it looking good.  However, surface cleaning alone is not enough.  Two to three times a year you will need to detail the upholstery to keep it looking its best. Untitled-1 Warning: Before using any product on your car’s fabric upholstery, carpet, leather or vinyl, test for color fading by cleaning a small, inconspicuous area.  Do not use the product if it adversely changes your fabric’s color or texture.


Car Vacuuming

There’s no special science to car vacuuming.You need a good vacuum, a few attachments, and ten to fifteen minutes to get in there and get the job done.The two most important attachments are the crevice attachment and the dust brush attachment.Make sure your crevice attachment is plastic, not metal.  A metal attachment or a plastic attachment that’s in poor condition may scratch or otherwise damage leather or vinyl upholstery.Use the crevice tool to reach between and under seats, into tight seams, nooks and crannies, and around seat beads.Vigorous movement on the carpet helps to bring up sand and grit.Use the round dust brush attachment to vacuum the console, dash and vents.You can assist with the dusting by using an interior detailing brush ahead of the vacuum to get deep into vents and cracks.Here are the steps for proper vacuuming:


  • Start your vacuuming job by pulling out the floor mats.  Shake out the mats to remove any loose dirt.  Use a 4″ upholstery attachment or the bare hose end to vigorously vacuum the mats. The more you’re able to agitate the carpet, the cleaner you’ll get it.
  • Work on the rear upholstery and carpet.  Push the front seats all the way forward.  Use the crevice tool to vacuum the cracks of the seats, and between the seats and carpeted areas.  If the seat upholstery is fabric, switch to the 4″ upholstery attachment and vacuum the rear seat and the deck under the rear window.  Vacuum the rear carpet.  Use the crevice tool to vacuum around the seat tracks and under the front seats.  Use the round dust brush attachment to vacuum the door panels.
  • Push the front seats all the way back to work on the front upholstery.  Use the crevice tool to vacuum the cracks of the seats, between the seats and carpeted areas, and around the gas and brake pedals.  Now switch to the 4″ upholstery attachment to vacuum the carpet in the foot wells and the seats (if the seats are fabric).  Use the round dust brush attachment to vacuum the console, vents and door panels.
  • If your headliner is fabric, use the round dust brush attachment to vacuum the headliner.  Be gentle, though, as this material is not as durable as your seat upholstery.

Tip: When vacuuming carpet, use the palm of your free hand to beat the carpet just in front of your vacuum hose or tool.  As you beat the carpet, dirt that is lodged deep into the carpet will come loose for vacuuming.


Cleaning and Treating Your Dashboard & Console

We look at the dashboard and console more than any other area of our car’s interior.  It makes sense, therefore, that we should give it some special attention.  The dash and the deck under the rear window also take the brunt of damage from sun exposure.  In order to keep your dash from cracking and fading, regular treatment is necessary.


Cleaning and Treating Door Panel & Jambs

Door panels are often made of several materials, including fabric, vinyl, carpet and leather.  Vinyl can be scrubbed to remove shoe scuffs.  General-purpose cleaners, like 303 Aerospace Cleaner, or interior vinyl and plastic cleaners, likeSonus ALL-IN-1 Total Auto Cleaner, or Detailer’s Pro Series Waterless Auto Wash easily remove black scuff marks from these areas.


Cleaning Carpet and Floor Mats

Most automotive carpets are very durable and will withstand repeated shampooing without signs of damage or wear.  Carpet cleaning is not fast or easy.  You should expect to spend 2 to 3 hours shampooing the front and rear carpet and mats in a sedan or SUV, a little less time for a truck or two-seater. Before shampooing, the carpet and floor mats must be thoroughly vacuumed.  To do a complete job, it may be necessary to remove the front seats, which requires the correct size Allen or socket wrench.
