So far we covered a ton of places in your car that you might not think of and how to clean the best. Most recently, we talked about the seats and under the floor mats. In this post, we will go over the best practices for the inside glass and how to protect your dashboard for the long term.
On top of smelling fresh after your cleaning, it will be an added plus to clean the inside of the windows too. You will be able to see better and this will give a nice final touch to your routine. Be careful with what you use though, household glass cleaners often contain ammonia which can eat through the tinting on the windows! Aim for ammonia-free glass cleaner or even better, something specifically designed for automotive windows. Also, use a microfiber cloth so you don’t leave lint on the windows or even worse, scratch them.
This is the area of your car you probably see the most and is the most susceptible to cracking and fading. UV rays from the sun and intense Florida heat dry out the vinyl surface of your dashboard. If taken care of well enough, it can be the visual point between your car looking like it is in fair condition or in great condition.
Here is the best way to clean it. Get a professional protectant to wipe the surface down with first. Next, you will want to again use a microfiber cloth to avoid causing unnecessary scratches. Wipe down any extra moisture and you are good to go. A good protectant will not only clean the surface but protect it by retaining moisture for the intense heat to come.
This one is surprising as many people have probably not cleaned it since buying their car. To think it is right above your head every time you are in your car. The headliner will retain smells and germs from things you bring in the car like food and dirt. When you do this, you want to be super careful not to use the wrong product because it could cause discoloration and really stand out. Getting a product specifically made for the headliner upholstery or asking a professional would be a good move.

There are many places in your car that you may be forgetting when you clean. Last week we talked about the importance of sanitizing the common touch places like the steering wheel and shifter knob. On top of that, places that are out of the way like under the spare tire. We will continue on with some other places that may not have come to mind either.
When you get around to cleaning the inside of your car, are there places you may be missing every time? We are going to talk about some places you will want to include in your car cleaning routine and how to clean them properly.
If you are talking about cleaning chemical-free, getting surfaces to look brand new again, and all with water, you are talking about steam cleaning. Using steam to clean the inside of your car is great for disinfecting surfaces and restoring them to the pristine condition they once were.
Do you know that we have services for your boat as well as your car, truck, and RV? It is important to keep your boat in top shape too. Similar to RVs, boats have gel coats as we talked about last week. When the gel coat deteriorates, the boat is more susceptible to damage. Check out this boat we detailed in the video below.
Having an RV or trailer can be great for cheap travel and family road trips. We have some clients who use their RV for road trips every 6 months! While traveling you will still want to make sure you are outshining the rest. In the video below, see this 5th wheel that we have been maintaining for the last 3 years. We take care of this Sandpiper every 6 months. Everything from top to bottom including roof treatments, gel coating, and wheels – all protected.
A gel coating is often put on along with the clear coat on vehicles like RVs to give them excellent water resistance and protection. When the gel coat starts to deteriorate from oxidation it may need the gel coating restored to get its great look back again. A gel coating service can be a great choice for your RV!
