Whether you drive around with pets, kids, or guests, your car interior can get messy. No one likes crumbs, pet hair, or sticky residue around the mats and seats, which can build up over time. Ultimately, someone has to clean it up. To avoid bigger problems like weird smells and stains, here is a step-by-step guide to aid you in professionally detailing your car’s interior.

The Material and Tools You Need

There are several cleaners and tools on the market. Even though you might have generic cleaners, you should purchase specifically formulated ones for your car. Furthermore, using floor cleaners and similar chemicals can damage surfaces inside your car over time.

We recommend the following items for your car: Disinfecting wipes, Invisible Glass ammonia-free window cleaner, Leather cleaner, Carpet cleaner, and Upholstery Cleaner.

These are for your car’s interior: Microfiber cloth, Car vacuum with attachments, Sponge, Stiff-bristle scrub brush, Bucket, Duster, Spray bottle, Crevice cleaning tool, and Duster.

8 Steps on Professional Car Interior Detailing

The Floor Mats

Take out the floor mats, give them a good shake outside, then give them a good vacuum. Depending on the material, wash them with dish soap or carpet cleaning. After they are entirely dry, put them back.

Vacuum the Entire Interior

To get rid of dust, grime, and debris, use a vacuum cleaner with attachments to reach all the nooks and crannies on the seat surface.

Clean and Disinfect the Dashboard

Dust the dashboard and vents with a duster or microfiber cloth. Then, use disinfectant wipes to eradicate bacteria and germs.

Clean the Center Console with Care

Use a microfiber cloth to clean the console of dust and dirt. Handle delicate sections with care, such as the infotainment screen and shifter. Instead of harsh chemicals, use a moist microfiber cloth on the touchscreen.

Tackle Cupholders, Door Panels, and Steering Wheel

Dust off and use disinfectant wipes to clean these high-touch areas. Clean removable cup holders with dish soap and warm water.

Wipe Down the Interior Windows

The inside of your windows and windshield can be cleaned with glass cleaner and microfiber cloths. To prevent streaks, mist one cloth with the cleaner and use the other to wipe the glass.

Clean Your Seats Based on Material

For a smooth and clean finish, use specialized leather cleaners and conditioners on leather seats. For seats made of cloth, start by removing any stains, then use cloth cleaner and wipe it off with a moist microfiber cloth. Don’t soak the seats; instead, let them air dry entirely.

Deodorize for a Fresh Finish

Use a special leather cleaner and conditioner on leather seats for a smooth, glossy appearance. First, remove any stains on fabric seats. Then, use a damp microfiber cloth and seat cleaning to remove any leftover residue. Allow the seats to dry fully rather than soak them.
