PROCEDURE FOR CLEANING INTERIOR OF USED AUTOMOBILES
Cleaning Tools & Materials Needed:
1. Heavy Duty cleaner
2. Clean absorbent rags and scrub brush
3. Glass cleaner
4. Shampoo and carpet stain remover
6. Gloves and goggles
Cleaning and degreasing a used automobile can bring about more dollars to the dealer when the right chemicals are used for cleaning and polishing the vehicle. Harsh chemicals should not be used because of dulling and destroying some of the fabric, plastic, and leather.
l. Put on gloves and goggles.
2. Roll down all windows, open doors and trunk.
3. Remove and clean floor mats
4. Vacuum upholstery.
5. Vacuum seats, carpeting, doors, and head liners.
6. Remove stains from carpet, seats, and door paneling.
7. Mix shampoo according to the directions on the container.
8. Shampoo seats first, the door panels next, and then the floor.
9. Allow the fabric to dry.
10. Roll up windows and clean all interior windows and dashboard with glass cleaner.
11. Clean all plastic and leather upholstery with an all purpose cleaner/degreaser. This to include: arm rests, seats, door paneling, and head liner if made of plastic or leather material.
12. Use a clean damp cloth for rinsing all plastic and leather surfaces.
13. Clean all chrome with a liquid glass cleaner. Glass cleaner will leave chrome sparkling clean.
14. Polish all plastic, leather, and vinyl arm rests, door guards, dashboards, floor mats, trunk mats, and seats with a protectant.
15. Steam clean engine. (See Steam Cleaning Procedure.)
16. Clean around door locks, push button controls, steering wheel and column, gauges, and speedometer glass.
A clean, bright, and shiny automobile is worth more money. Attention given to every cleaning detail in the interior is well worth the time spent.
