People have this notion that cleaning your car is only for the pride of its appearance, when it fact it’s not. Cleaning the car regularly also extends the life span of the car and corrects the damages that might affect the other components. Adding the proper car detailing on your regular car maintenance is a good investment; especially that you can save a lot on the supplies.  


The main difference between detailing and cleaning is the process of how the car is cleaned and the extent of the cleaning process. When you clean the car, it only involves vacuuming, cleaning and wiping. But when you do the proper detailing process, it involves cleaning every part to make it look like it came fresh from the factory. Interior detailing Hawaii is important to keep the car in its proper condition.  

Step 1 

Before you do the detailing process, take out everything first. This includes all the content of the car’s interior like floor mats and glove compartments. Remove the removable features. It doesn’t mean that you should tear the interior apart, but just take out what can be took out.  

Step 2 

Start vacuuming the interior, and begin it the headliner then up to the roof. All the dust should be vacuumed up. Make use of the brush attachment that comes with the vacuum and gently scrub every surface. Use the air compressor to clean the hole and cracks and remove all the debris and dust.  

Step 3 

If you see stains, clean them with foaming cleaner. Deal with the spots and stains you see especially on the carpet. Spray the foam on any discolored spot or stain you see. Let it sit for few minutes then blot the stains using a towel. If you see stubborn stains that cannot be removed using the foam cleaner, cut it using box cutter or razor blade. If it’s still not removed, cut out a patch from the same carpet and attach it in the place of the spot.  

Step 4 

Get a high-pressure hose attachment and wash interior pieces of your car, like the floor mats. Blast them with water, wash the carpet and clean using an all-purpose cleaner. To speed the drying process, blot the carpets. Wait to dry before you put everything back.  

Step 5 

Next step include cleaning the entire surface in the interior of the car. Use a plastic protectant for the plastic parts, the wood protectant will avoid the wood from warping and the metal pieces should be cleaned with appropriate metal cleaner. Next, clean the seats. Use the appropriate cleaner for the type of seat material you have.  

If you have cloth seats, use a fabric cleaner then vacuum using a wet-dry vacuum. If you have a leather seat, use a leather conditioner or a specialized cleaner. Clean the mirrors, the inside of the window and the windshields.  Make sure to use a chamois to make the spots appear so you can effectively clean those spots.
