Messy Interior Diseases: 3 Vehicle Infections That May Require Emergency Auto Detailing

Normal, everyday use of a vehicle will result in the need for a deep clean from time to time. But there are 3 vehicle disorders that will turn your car into an unholy mess if you don't get a handle on them.

Here's what you need to know about these 3 car-interior killers and how to protect your vehicle:

Traveling Sales Syndrome

This disease can happen to the vehicle of anyone who works out of their car, whether they're salespeople or wedding photographers. Sooner or later, if you don't take precautions, having an office in your car will make it look like a file cabinet and an office desk drawer collided and blew up on your seats and dashboard.

Take precautions by investing in proper storage for your important documents and office equipment. You'll find trunk storage in a variety of sizes to fit any trunk dimensions. These fold flat when not in use and have convenient handles to easily transport them in the field. Have a large trunk storage bin to hold items you normally keep in the car, and a smaller one to carry inside each night to replenish with new work papers as you purge old ones.

Keeping a clean car pays off when your client needs a short ride somewhere or peers into your car as you're chatting after a business lunch. Allowing Traveling Sales Syndrome to strike your car will make clients wonder if you can handle a heavy workload without losing it.

Exotic Vacation Flu

This disorder affects cars when their drivers and passengers are traveling and eating out a great deal. Before long, maps, fast food wrappers, tourist brochures, and pants begin rapidly appearing and multiplying on the floorboards and eventually overtake the seats.

The best cure for this alarming infection is prevention. Have designated spots for food, clothing, and diversions like magazines and toys. Eat in the car as seldom as possible, and have a covered trash receptacle to hold any wrappers, paper bags, or empty condiment packs.

At each stop, throw out trash but keep the receptacle handy. Go through the car and purge it from time to time, reorganizing messy spots. Have the car detailed midway through a long trip to avoid the foul odors that often accompany this nasty flu.

Fur and Slobber Disease

If some or all of your babies have fur, you're likely to encounter this illness in your car at some point. Your car seats seem to have receptacles that call out to and attract pet hair, nail scratches, and vomit.

Squelch these mess-seeking receptacles by purchasing seat covers that are washable. Invest in a good vacuum cleaner and heavy-duty floor mats. Consider covering windows with plastic cling wrap to avoid slobber smears on long car rides.

If your car is suffering from any of these sicknesses, don't let things become critical. Talk with a professional vehicle detailing shop, like Deluxe Detail & Window Tint, today to have emergency treatment administered. Your car will be as good as new.

About Me

Keeping Your Car Immaculate

When I bought a new car last month, I swore that I would never get it dirty. At first, I wouldn't let our kids eat or drink in the car, for fear that they would spill on the new seats. Unfortunately, as soon as a week later, my car interior looked and smelled like a regular minivan. I didn't know what to do. I decided that to ward off the weekly messes, I would invest in a car wash and auto detailing pass at my local car wash. When I took my car in, I wasn't expecting much, which is why I was so surprised when they made my car immaculate. This blog is all about keeping your car clean by working with the professionals.
