Avoid the ‘surprise’ of a messy interior with A Basic Car Cleaning

Keep Ottawa’s great outdoors where they belong, outside, throughout the year.

Is your car new and you want it to stay looking and smelling that way? Or maybe you’ve already asked us to do a deep detail of the interior. You probably love that feeling of sitting in a spotless car, I know I do. But after a few weeks, the dust starts to settle and fingerprints build up. The steering wheel gets those shiny spots where you grab it and the seams between trim pieces show a few crumbs getting caught. 

 

Don’t let this get away from you! Ottawa is known for its gritty winters, high winds and dusty spring weather. Before you even see the signs of our outdoor environment appear, schedule a maintenance cleaning of the interior and keep that comfortable feeling forever. The basic cleaning service is for those who have their interior dialed and want to keep it that way.

 

Instead of breaking out the heavy equipment and stronger cleaning solutions, we are able to more quickly bring back the luster of the materials in your car.

 

As part of this cleaning, the materials are all wiped down with gentle cleaners that maintain the protection that’s been previously applied. The carpets and seats are vacuumed and the seams between seat cushions blown out as needed. This is especially useful to keep the sand and grit in the seams from prematurely wearing down your seat materials as you get in and out of the car. The glass is cleaned, inside and out for clear visibility and then plastic and leather materials are re-applied with treatment if needed. 

 

What isn’t included here is any steam treatment, shampooing, stain removal or more thorough attention. If it’s been more than a few weeks since your interior has been cleaned or you’ve had a particularly tough run with your car, then it is probably best to ask about a full detail. As always, I will speak to you and evaluate your situation to recommend the service that makes the most sense for you.

 

This is very much a maintenance service and pairs perfectly with the basic exterior wash. This is really the best way to never think about having a dirty car or being embarrassed when you give someone a ride. In fact, it’s normal for people to comment on just how great your car is always looking. 


This interior cleaning usually takes about 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. If you’re unsure if this is right for you, don’t hesitate to call, text or email. In certain circumstances, I may even be able to perform this service at your Ottawa home if I’m familiar with your vehicle already and have access to power.

Included in a basic interior cleaning is:

  1. Thorough vacuuming of carpet, seats and trunk

  2. Clean all surfaces from smudges and dust from dash, center console, screens, vents and doors.

  3. Clean interior glass and mirrors.

  4. Additional light cleaning if required. 

  5. Re-dress plastics and leather if required.
