First of all, empty your car. The whole week has been fun. You have been drinking Pepsi, eating chips, spilling some of them in your car; you have been smoking on those long drives letting the ash tray to overflow on the foot mats. Your party day evidences are those hair that lie on the seats and the floor of your car. First, you have to take out everything that can be held with your hand. Take out all the clothes, trash cans etc.
Empty your dash box. Keep your documents safely. Remove all the stuff from the seat pockets and other cup holders and window pockets. Remove everything that does not belong to the car as a part of it.
Now is the turn of the floor mats. Carefully take them out. Strike the car mats against ground and against each other. This will help the loose dust particles to get removed from the mats. The mats are to be vacuumed cleaned separately afterwards.
Next task is to vacuum clean the bare floor of the car. Attach wide brush tool to the vacuum cleaner to clean the open areas of the floor. For the corners and the surface area under the seats, you may use smaller brush with the extendable hose that shall help in reaching to the hidden places.
While vacuum cleaning the area under the seats of your car, keep moving and sliding the seats forward and backward to get an easy access to the larger surface area.
After finishing the job on open wide area, now you have to vacuum the narrow areas like under the brake and clutch peddles and small and hidden area of consoles and also the area between the seats. Use smaller brush for this purpose.
Often, the floor carpet of the car gets stained because of various liquid spills. To get a perfectly spotless carpet, you need to make use of liquid carpet cleaner. Use required amount of carpet cleaner on the carpet and leave it as it is for few minutes. After that, vacuum clean the spot area to dry off the liquid carpet cleaner. This task has to be repeated till the cleaner is perfectly removed from the carpet.
Now it is the turn for your dashboard. A soft brush tool accessory must be used to vacuum clean this area. The doors and the front and rear glasses of the car must be vacuumed cleaned by making use of the soft and smaller brush. The shiner must be used on the dashboard and the door interiors only after vacuum cleaning them because otherwise the accumulated dust might make a mess when you use the shiner on the unclean surface.
The seats are the softest interior of the car. They must be vacuumed very carefully. The trick is to use the best fit accessory brush. Use the smallest and very soft brush that can reach to the area formed by the seat and its back where most of the dust accumulates. You need to carefully insert the small brush in that part to suck the dust and hair from that hidden area.
Often when we vacuum clean our car, we forget about the trunk area. This area should not be left neglected as this is the area which is put to maximum dust prone storage. Just use the wide brush accessory of you vacuum cleaner and clean the floor and side surfaces of the trunk.
Now is the turn to clean your car’s foot mats which you pulled out in the starting of your vacuum cleaning job. Generally, the dust and dirt on the foot mats is of loose particles’ type which gets off only on shaking and striking the mats. But some kind of waste objects like pet or human hair or food remaining need to be cleared with the help of vacuum cleaner. Spread the mats on the floor and vacuum them gradually with use of broad beater brush.
Happy vacuum cleaning!
