There’s nothing wrong with taking your car to an
auto body shop in Chicago for cosmetic exterior repairs that have no impact on the performance,
efficiency, or reliability of your vehicle. After all, how you feel driving
your car can be just as important as how well the engine is running. The
same principal applies to maintaining the interior of your car. Does clean
upholstery effect your vehicle’s performance or how long it will
be on the road? Most likely not, but that doesn’t mean it can’t
elevate the experience you have owning your car. That being said, here
are some tips for keeping your car’s upholstery looking great.
Keep an Emergency Cleanup Kit Handy
Spills can happen suddenly and without warning. Unfortunately, you might
not always be close to home when a spill occurs. To prevent food and beverage
spills from staining your seats, carpet, or lining, keep an emergency
cleanup kit in the truck or underneath one of the seats so you can quickly
address all sorts of spills before they stain.
Don’t Eat and Drive
Speaking of spills, one of the easiest ways to
prevent food and beverage stains is to avoid eating meals inside your car. In addition to the potential
of spilling and staining your car’s upholstery, eating while driving
can distract you from the road and increase your chances of being involved
in a collision. The good news is that if you are involved in a cheeseburger-related
fender bender, your local collision repair shop can get your car looking
like new so you don’t have to be embarrassed about what happened.
Invest in Professional Detailing
Every so often, ideally at least twice per year or more, you should invest
in professional detailing to get the inside of your car looking, feeling, and even
smelling like new. Professionals use all sorts of cleaning solutions, tools, and
equipment that you aren’t likely to have in your garage, which means
a deeper clean and a more enjoyable interior.
To keep the outside of your car looking as good as the interior, bring
your vehicle to B&L Automotive Repairs, Inc. for all of your auto
body, collision repair, and paint needs. Our technicians are I-Car Gold
