What’s In Your Drivers Seat?

Before and After Upholstery Cleaning by On The Spot Mobile Detailing

The disgusting truth is, in the drivers seat of your vehicle lays a little bit of everything you have ever touched, sat on, and anything your legs or pants have come in contact with at any point of the day before getting behind the wheel.

A driver’s seat like all seats in your vehicle, is designed for comfort. Comfort for the majority of car manufactures means cushioning. Cushioning in most vehicles is a porous foam that allows air to flow through keeping your bottom cool and comfortable but also letting dirt and liquids flow down and sink in.

When cleaning your seat it is important that more than the surface is cleaned. A hot water extractor should be used to properly purge and remove the layers of dirt that have built up in your cushion. If your doing it yourself try the Bissell pro heat machines. It’s a small machine and costs just over $100. Best part is it works really well for your house stairs, couches, and other small areas where stains may occur. If choosing a detailer, make sure that hot water extraction is part of their process when cleaning your interior.

Every vehicle needs regular cleaning and protection to prevent dirt buildup and material degeneration.  We recommend that you have your interior deep cleaned a minimum of once a year with regular vacuuming and upkeep in between as needed.  Certain materials such as your headliner, are more delicate than others so make sure to follow our blog for more DIY Tips or give us a call for a professional’s touch..
