Frequently Asked Questions for Car Upholstery Cleaning
Neglecting to clean your car interior results in the build-up of dust, stains and possibly even mould issues. Dust is a breeding ground for dust mites, which are health hazards to many people, and dust allergies are very common on their own. Stains, if left too long, become very difficult to remove, even when a professional does the cleaning. And mould is something most people are allergic to, as the spores cause harm to your lungs and breathing system. To avoid encountering these issues, consider having your car interior deep cleaned on a regular basis.
In order to keep your car interior fresh and stain-free, we recommend using professional car valeting services at least once every 3 to 4 months. This will prevent any stains from setting in, as well as any sand wearing out your carpets and mats. Additionally, the longer you leave any spillages unattended, the less the chances of removal, even by professionals. For this purpose, it is very important to have your vehicle deep cleaned regularly.
Absolutely, as our mobile technicians come out to your home address to perform the car interior cleaning. If you're at work, that's no problem - we can clean it while you do better things with your time. The only points of access we require are a tap to fill a few buckets of water, and a normal socket to plug in our extension for power. Bear in mind, the extension is about 30 metres long, and must not cross a street to get to your vehicle.
If you live in a flat with an underground car park, and the vehicle needs to be cleaned there, that is also not an issue, provided there is ample light, as well as electricity and water access points in the car park. If there is no water access in the underground car park, we could manage if there are taps in communal areas or your flat, but electric and light are necessary for us to perform the work.
Our basic service covers professional deep steam cleaning of the seats, carpets, mats and the boot carpet. It is the most affordable option, and the one you need when all you want is those areas to be cleaned, or particular stains to be treated.
We also have a Full Interior option, which covers wiping and polishing of all other physically reachable interior elements, apart from the ceiling (roof lining). Most of our customers prefer this option, as it leaves the interior fully disinfected and refreshed.
The third and final option is the Premium Interior, which includes everything in the Full, plus two after-care services to be applied by the technician. They will ensure your car is not only clean once we're done, but stays that way for a longer time.
1. Stain Protection (a product analogue to Scotchgard) is a spray that creates an invisible protective layer on your car seats, which makes new spillages easier to remove. The layer will react to the spills and prevent them from sinking in as deep, and they will also stay wet for longer.
2. Vent Pro Solution is an ozone cleaner for the car's air filtration system, and is meant to save you money on replacing the filters, which vehicle manufacturers recommend doing at least once a year. It will do so by cleaning them out of any germs, bacteria and mould spores which may be hiding inside, and greatly assist with removing unpleasant odours which have made their way there.
Bear in mind that you can ask for a price for Vent Pro or Stain Protection, and add them on to the other options if you wish - you don't have to order a Premium to take advantage of these helpful services. Call our customer service assistants and they'll be happy to advise, as well as inform you of our special offers.
The starting price to have your car upholstery (which includes the seats, mats, carpets and the boot carpet) deep cleaned is £59. The starting price for a full interior valet (which also adds a wipe down and polish of the reachable interior elements) is £100. The cost depends on the car make and model, and on the current condition of the upholstery. In case of any major issues, such as paint spilled, mould growth or pet hairs, our prices are subject to an increase.
We do not include the ceiling (roof lining) in our cleaning services, due to the fact that it is delicate fabric compared to the rest of the interior. It is normally glued directly to the metal chassis of the car, and not fixed by other means. In some cases, if the fabric is too delicate, our powerful machine might cause the ceiling upholstery to hang. For this reason, it isn't included into the Interior options we have available. However, we are happy to inspect the roof lining on site, and if it is suitable for the method, to include it for an extra fee.
