Ways to Keep Your Vehicle’s Upholstery Clean

If you are planning to sell your automobile when you are done with it, it’s important to keep the interior in like-new condition. This includes the seat upholstery. There are ways you can keep your car’s upholstery clean, and we here at Banister’s Upholstery are going to list these ways below.

Don’t Eat or Drink in Your Car

The best rule of thumb to keep your upholstery clean is to avoid eating and drinking in your automobile. We realize this can be hard, especially if you have a long commute or have toddlers in the backseat, but the number one way to stain your vehicle’s upholstery is to spill food and drinks on it. It’s also important that you resist the urge to apply makeup while you are in the vehicle. If you drop something like a mascara wand, you can stain the upholstery.

Clean and Vacuum the Upholstery Regularly

Maintain your upholstery by cleaning it and vacuuming it regularly. This removes all of the dirt and grime that will eventually stain it. This is especially true if you enjoy driving with your windows down. This allows road grime into the automobile and onto the upholstery. Road grime can stain your upholstery. As such, make sure you keep the upholstery vacuumed and clean it with an approved cleaner on a regular basis to keep it in like-new condition.

Check for Stains and Treat Them

Inspect your car’s upholstery regularly for stains. Make sure you do this frequently so the stains don’t have a chance to take hold. If you see a stain, use an approved upholstery stain remover to remove the stain. Follow the directions on the label. Be careful if you have leather upholstery. This will require a special cleaner to avoid damaging the leather. Again, set some rules regarding food, drinks, and makeup to prevent staining the upholstery.

Have Customized Seat Covers Made

Finally, we can help you keep your vehicle’s upholstery clean by customizing car seat covers specifically for your automobile. The covers will protect the original upholstery, which means you can do whatever you want in your automobile. When you’re ready to sell your vehicle, all you need to do is remove the customized car seat covers and the original upholstery will be intact. This is an excellent way to protect your car seats, especially if they are leather.
