Interior car detailing is essential in protecting the upholstery from fading and cracking, especially with cloth car seats. So how can we clean cloth car seats effectively? What does the process entail? Let’s find out more about how to clean cloth seats and interior car detailing in this blog by Humble Crew Detailing in Spring Lake Park, MN!
What Is The Process Of Cleaning Car Seats?
Vacuum the Seats
When you are ready to clean your cloth vehicle seats, begin by vacuuming the fabric. It will remove dust, dirt, and pet hair from the seat cushion and prevent you from pressing it further into the material. Utilize the crevice tool to get access between the seat and the backrest. Then, use the upholstery brush to lift the fabric’s fibers.
For most food and drink, grease, and dirt stains, apply some upholstery cleaner to the stain and massage it with a scrub brush.
Wet the affected area softly for dye based stains that leak or transfer color onto your seat. Combine dry oxygen-based bleach and a few drops of water to form a paste. Spread this over the affected area and let it sit for at least one hour.
Apply the Upholstery Cleaning Agent
Depending on the chosen cleaner, combining the cleaning solution with warm water may be necessary. Use the amount specified on the product’s label per gallon of water. The ideal approach to apply cleaning is using a spray bottle since it allows you to manage the quantity that is applied to the cloth. We start at the top and softly spray the whole seat. Don’t use too much, it is unnecessary to oversaturate the fabric.
Scrub the Dirt Away
Use a scrub brush to work the cleaning solution into the seat after spraying it. Clean every inch of the seat and make sure not to miss any! When your scrub brush gets dirty, rinse it in a pail of clean water and shake it to remove extra moisture.
Wipe Away Excessive Dampness
Utilize an absorbent microfiber towel to remove excess moisture. This will also assist in separating matted fibers.
Repeat each step as necessary.
If the upholstery still looks dirty, repeat the above instructions. If the upholstery is grimy, you will get greater results by removing filth over time, in many passes.
Allow the Seats to Air-Dry
If possible, allow the seats to dry before operating the vehicle again. Typically, two to three hours are required. Or place the car in the sunniest area to expedite drying.
Add A Coating for Protection
We recommend using a spray on fabric protector to help prevent dirt and stains from settling into the fabric now that the seats have been thoroughly cleaned and look new. This will make future cleaning much simpler.
How Often Should You Rinse Your Car’s Interior?
The frequency with which you should do interior car detailing depends on driving conditions, how the vehicle is utilized, the number of passengers, and how often you travel. If garbage and debris interfere with the vehicle’s controls, they should be removed from the driver’s floorboard and dashboard immediately. Twice a year should be plenty for a total inside detailing service.
