Car Upholstery Cleaning
Our car seats and upholstery accumulate dust and dirt slowly, and you’ll realise how dirty they are only when you start cleaning.
Car upholstery accumulates dirt, stains, grime and odours as the vehicle is constantly used. Every time we step into our car, we bring in more dirt and grime. Each time we eat or drink, we drop food crumbs, spills and stains. In fact, just sitting in our car, we leave behind dead skin cells, perspiration, hair, make-up etc.
That is why car upholstery cleaning is essential to ensure that our car remains fresh, clean and hygienic at all times.
Types Of Car Upholstery
It is important to identify the type of upholstery we have before cleaning commences. This helps in selecting the appropriate cleaning methods and agents to be used in the session.
Car seat upholstery can come in a variety of materials such as nylon fabric, microsuede polyester, vinyl, faux leather, leather etc.
For instance, fabric upholstery can be either tightly woven or loosely woven. Tightly woven upholstery has no raised fibres, thus dirt can easily entangle with the material, calling for thorough deep cleaning. Loosely woven upholstery has raised fabric fibres, thus most dirt can be removed by brushing off the loose debris from the surface.
Hence it is essential to engage a competent cleaning service that will tend to your specific car upholstery cleaning needs.
Some stains may cover only a small portion of the upholstery, so the cleaning is only restricted to the spot they cover. These could be ink, coffee, oil, grease or makeup stains.
Each stain is spot cleaned using the prescribed cleaning agent, without spreading to other parts outside the stain. Microfibre cloth is used when blotting stains or wiping fabric upholstery to reduce lint transfer.
Fabric is handled delicately to preserve its plush state and colouring. A steam cleaner is used to thoroughly clean the upholstery and carpet.
The steam cleaner first sprays hot water over an area and then suck it back up immediately, extracting the water from the upholstery along with all the dirt and grime. This is also known as the hot water extraction method.
Dirt and debris which gather in the seams will be cleaned using a smaller brush.
A lint roller uses sticky paper to pick up little pieces of fuzz, lint, crumbs, and hair from the upholstery. All the tiny specks from the fabric upholstery are removed by rolling a lint roller over the seats.
To complete the process, a fabric protector/stain repellent is sprayed to make it difficult for stains to embed in your fabric upholstery. This keeps your fabric seats looking cleaner for longer, while extending its life.
Vinyl upholstery are the easiest type of seats to clean, because due to their smooth non-absorbent finish, spills and messes can be wiped off easily. Glass cleaner is an appropriate cleaning agent for vinyl seats. Oil-based cleaners are avoided because they will harden your vinyl seats.
In order to avoid ruining your upholstery, all stain removers should be tested on an inconspicuous spot before use.
Leather is prone to damage from prolonged exposure to heat and direct sunlight, especially ultraviolet rays. As such, a specially formulated leather cleaning kit is used. This will ensure that your leather car seats are cleaned, nourished and protected well, giving your leather that shiny and well-groomed look.
Water-based, pH neutral leather conditioner is used to replenish the oils that make your leather smooth and rich-looking. This will leave your leather upholstery clean, shiny and good as new.
