Everybody wants to give their rides a deep truck wash. After all, most of us spend a lot of time cooped up in our vehicles. However, not everyone is aware of how true detailing should be. Sure, anyone can clean a truck’s interior, but effective removal of tough stains, spills, caked dirt, etc. requires expertise.
How to do truck wash deeply ? Below are tips from the experts.
Vacuum the Surfaces
Once you have removed empty bottles, cans, bags, food wrappers, etc. from the interior, it is time to vacuum. Remove all the carpets. Make use of the different attachments that come with your vacuum. First, make use of the hose to get rid of any loose grime and dirt on the upholstery, floors, carpets and any other areas that it can reach. Then, brush the surfaces again. Use the vacuum to trap those bits of dirt. You would be surprised by the amount of dirt still remaining. Use a soft bristled brush to remove dust from air vents, seat corners, creases, dashboard corners, armrests, and various switches and buttons. Once you have loosened the dust, use a can of compressed air to blow it out. Be sure to handle the vacuum carefully as it can scratch the car paint.
Use Interior Detailer to Clean the Vacuumed Surfaces
Multi-purpose products like interior detailer are designed to clean different types of interior surfaces. We recommend using products that are specifically made for the upholstery type. For instance, there are leather upholstery cleaners and conditioners. Using a product designed for vinyl or suede seats on leather may lead to premature aging, cracking and fading. Steam Cleaning is a great cleaning method that works on all surfaces including all upholstery types.
Clean the Carpets
Remove all the carpets from the car interior before vacuuming and cleaning. Steam cleaning the carpets is the best way to nip their growth in the bud. Make sure that the carpets are completely dry before you put them back inside the car, which is the next important step in preventing mold and mildew growth.
Steam Clean the Air Vents
Dirty vents will blow air contaminated with a number of dangerous germs and bacteria. Steam is your best option to eliminate them. Direct the nozzle of your steam cleaner to the air vents. Make sure the temperature is controlled.
Clean The Windows
A clean window is especially important for your safety. A dirty one can obscure your vision and lead to accidents. There are many products available in market that you can use for this purpose. For streak-free window cleaning, we recommend using steam. Clean windows will drastically improve the overall appearance of your truck.
Clean Dashboard, Steering Wheel and Console
The dashboard and console are often overlooked when cleaning the truck interior, but they should be as clean as the rest. Use a soft bristled tooth brush to get rid of embedded dust on these vinyl surfaces. Then use a dashboard cleaner or a multi-purpose interior detailer to wipe them clean. This will prevent premature cracking.
Clean Door Panels and Jambs
Just as with vinyl surfaces, use a brush to clean these areas along with water. Don’t forget to also clean the door frames, handles and storage pockets with a wash mitt or sponge.
Sanitizing the Truck Interior
Imagine the number of health risks you can get during truck driving inside such a truck with a interior harbors. During warm weather conditions, bacteria such as Staphylococcal and Bacillus cereus breed at alarming rates. Water and car shampoo are not cleaning agents nor disinfectants. The only steam can get rid of all types of gems and bacteria.
