How to Protect Your Car’s Interior By Cleaning It

April 3, 2022

Cleaning your car’s interior protects it from damage and makes it look nicer. Crumbs ground into your carpet, stains on your car seats and chocolate melted into nooks and crannies in your door panels can all cause harm.

Whether your kids, pets, or just natural wear and tear from your own use have made your car interior a mess, it’s probably overdue for a refresh. You can start by cleaning your carpet.

The carpet fibers themselves can take on damage from regular use. Dirt stuck in carpet breaks down the fibers, damaging them. Liquids, such as that drink you spilled when you slammed your brakes to avoid a crash, can soak through the top carpet layers and cause mildew and mold to grow underneath. Dry these liquids up as soon as possible to prevent damage. Super Star Car Wash offers microfiber towels for use at our washes, which can help soak up spills.

Vacuuming your carpet is also important to protect your interior. Super Star Car Wash offers complimentary vacuums for all of our Arizona and California Express car wash customers. Vacuuming will help suck up debris and dirt on your carpet, preventing it from sticking around and causing more damage.

On top of cleaning up spills, our microfiber towels can be used for interior cleaning. Super Star Car Wash also hand out dash wipes for cleaning interiors with our Express washes. This ensures dirt and dust don’t stay on hard interior surfaces, such as plastic, and keeps the air you breathe in your interior cleaner while reducing allergens. If you’re looking to take your interior cleaning game to the next level, Super Star Car Wash offers even more thorough options.

We offer full interior detailing in Arizona at our Full Service locations. Services offered include shampooing carpet, leather treatment, seat and upholstery cleaning, and cleaning of the dash, doors and center console.

Shampooing the carpet can remove deep-seated dirt and other damage vacuuming won’t clean, which prolongs the life of your carpet. Leather treatment conditions the leather, keeping it pliable. Without treatment, the harsh Arizona sun and heat will damage leather upholstery, causing it to crack and dry out over time. Reupholstery to fix leather is costly, making conditioning from Super Star Car Wash a worthwhile protective investment.

After a good cleaning, you should protect your car’s interior from the sun as much as possible. Our Full Service locations’ convenience stores offer sun shades and seat covers to help protect the inside of your ride. With the products and services we offer, Super Star Car Wash can keep your car looking like a star inside and out.
