Car Interior Cleaning Hacks

Cleaning Interior - Terry, MS

If you are like most people, your car starts to gather trash and junk over time. Summer is a great time to remedy that situation and give your car a thorough detailing. Here are a few car interior cleaning hacks to help make things a little bit easier.

Empty your car. The first thing you will want to do is take everything out of your car. Have a few boxes or bags ready to sort items into three categories: trash, keep, and find a new home.

Clean floor mats. You should have taken out your floor mats in step one. An easy way to clean them is to spray them down with the hose and then leave them in the sun to dry.

Wash hard surfaces. Starting from the top down, wipe all hard surfaces in your car. This should include things like the center console, doors, and windows.

Scrub away stains. You probably have one or two stains on your upholstery. Use a good upholstery cleaning solution, a stiff brush, and some clean rags to scrub away those stains.

Vacuum. Using the vacuum attachments, vacuum your entire car from the top down. Pay close attention to the tight spots between and under the seats.

How to Take Care of Your Car in the Summer

Car Care - Terry, MS

Summertime in Mississippi means scorching temperatures and sweltering humidity for months on end. To make sure you and your vehicle make it through the season, here are a few tips on how to take care of your car in the summer and prevent roadside disasters.

Check your battery. The high temperatures of summer can make battery fluid evaporate quickly. Heat can lead to internal failure in a weak battery. Have your battery tested to see if it has enough life left before you end up with a dead battery.

Check the coolant. You don’t want your car overheating. Make sure your car has enough coolant and that it is the correct proportion.

Inspect the HVAC system. Your air conditioning is a vital component during the summer. Not only does it keep you comfortable, but it helps prevent driver fatigue. If your A/C doesn’t seem as cold as it once was, have the system inspected, including your cabin filter.

Check the tires. Tires that are not properly inflated are more likely to experience a blowout. This risk increases even more when the road temperatures are hot. Inspect your tires, check the tread depth, and make sure all the tires are inflated to the correct air pressure setting.
