Parking your vehicle undercover is the ideal way to keep it clean and your occupants secure. There are numerous advantages to be gained from this neoclassical arrangement, including a tidy parking lot and hassle-free valet service when needed. Unfortunately, you will likely have to sift through multiple people vying for top priority at all times; fortunately we have experienced professionals available who will gladly give necessary nudges or advice when needed.
Shake Your Floor Mats
One of the best ways to keep your car clean is by shaking out its floor mats. This can be especially beneficial if they’ve been collecting dirt and mud from shoes.
Maintain the aesthetic of carpet or rubber mats by regularly shaking them out.
Once they’re cleaned, you can apply a protective coating to repel dirt and liquids. This helps prevent stains and shields against fading or cracking.
To eliminate stains on rubber mats, you can use a cleaner specifically designed for this purpose or mix plain soap and water. Finally, scrub the stains with a soft-bristled brush or sponge.
Keep a Packet of Wet Wipes in Your Car
Maintaining your car’s interior with wet wipes is a great way to stay clean. These wipes stay wet and ready for use, so they don’t dry out and become breeding grounds for bacteria.
These products also contain antibacterial and preservative elements to guard against mold and mildew growth.
They’re perfect for wiping down upholstery, as they can effectively remove stains and spots without harming your vehicle’s interior. A pack of wet wipes is easy to keep in your glove box and can be used on any surface.
Don’t Eat in Your Car
No matter if your vehicle is new or not, eating in your vehicle is never a good idea. Not only is it messy and distracting for drivers alike, but eating can cause distractions as well.
Food stains and crumbs can easily accumulate on your interior, such as carpets, seats and cup holders. Not only that but they may contaminate upholstery and leave behind unpleasant odours which is especially annoying for those who appreciate fresh smelling spaces.
If you do find yourself eating in your car, make sure you get it cleaned as soon as possible. Doing this could save you a lot of money in the long run!
Clean Up a Spill Right Away
No matter how careful you are, spills can happen and need to be cleaned promptly. It’s essential that your team receives training on proper cleanup procedures and that you stock up on absorbent pads, waste disposal containers and PPE (personal protective equipment) if there are chemicals that could leak and cause harm.
Spills can come from many sources – liquids, solids or hazardous substances. They can happen anywhere – in a lab or the office – and need to be handled correctly.
