Back To School: Get Your Car Ready With Some Help From Mr. Clean Car Wash

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

The end of summer is getting close. This can only mean one thing—back to school is right around the corner. Whether you’re a college student embarking on a cross-country adventure, or a soccer mom wanting to clean your car up before the big game, there are many ways to get the job done. Because your lifestyle is extremely busy, especially with back to school activities, when it comes to getting your car cleaned it is time to kick back and relax. Let the pros at Mr. Clean Car Wash do all of the dirty work for you and make your car outshine everything else. Here are some reasons to come visit us today!

Get Rid Of Aromatic Pet Odor
Throughout spring and summer, your car’s seats and floors have seen its fair share of pet traffic. From camping trips to long trips with Fido in the car, odors are bound to creep up. While most fragrances just mask odors, Mr. Clean Car Wash uses odor eliminators to target odors and get rid of them on contact. This will leave your entire car smelling fresh and pet free.

Releasing Summertime Stains
During the summer, you likely throw dirty items such as shoes, bathing suits and soccer balls in the backseat. You may miss a stain or two or simply not have the time to spot clean a mess. The result is a stain that is difficult to lift, no matter what type of cleaner or extraction process you use. Here at Mr. Clean Car Wash, we target and hone in on deep stains. We work at eliminating stains and restoring your upholstery’s appearance.

Clear The Air From Allergies And Toxins
When you use your vehicle during the spring, one troublesome culprit can wreak havoc on your allergies—pollen. Pollen is composed of tiny particles that break apart and release into the air. Not only can it trigger hay fever or mild respiratory symptoms, it can really mess with your vehicle, both inside and out. The dusty residue can actually oxidize the paint on your car and stain your upholstery. Drop off your car and we can clean your seat, carpets and interior hard surfaces.

Create New Car Appeal
If you’ll be carpooling with both kids and adults this fall, you’ll want your vehicle looking good enough to impress the Joneses. We offer a complete exterior detailing to make your entire car looks its best!

Prep For Passengers
Maybe your car is already in perfect shape, but because of your busy summer schedule, you just didn’t have the time or resources to detail out the interior. Let us take care of you and your car. We will do a complete interior detailing that targets:

  • Carpets
  • Seats
  • Interior-Plastics and Vinyl

In addition, your car will smell fresh and inviting, making it a joy to drive and show off to your passengers.

Full-Service Pampering
Let’s face it, your car is probably your best friend, especially because it goes everywhere you do. Don’t you want to give it only the very best in pampering and care? Drop your vehicle off and we take care of it from bumper-to-bumper. We can do:

  • A full service car wash

Protecting Your Car’s Interior from Pet Wear and Tear

Monday, June 20th, 2016

Jumping in the car and taking a ride with your best canine or feline friend can be a treat for you and your pet. Unfortunately, the resulting flyaway hair and paw prints can make your car less than pristine. The good news is there are solutions for preventing pet damage to your auto’s interior, including getting a car interior detail.

Common pet damage to car interior
Fido and Fluffy don’t mean to, but they can cause trouble with your car’s interior. Common damage to your vehicle when an animal is on board includes hair and fur that becomes lodged in your upholstery and on the floor, nose and paw prints on the windows and doors and even scratches, tears, holes and rips in the seating from wayward claws and nails. A pet can also become car sick and vomit or have an accident that can result in the need for odor control management.

Prevent pet damage
Protecting the interior of your car from pet damage is your first line of defense. Safeguard your upholstery from fur, stains and scratches with seat covers, which come in plastic or cloth. Before purchasing, ensure that cloth seat covers are machine washable. To protect the car’s mats and carpeting, use hard plastic floor mat covers or floor liners made of nonslip rubber. Remove seat covers and floor mats when your pet isn’t riding with you and store them in the trunk.. As soon as pet fur does invade your car’s interior, prevent it from working its way into the floor and cloth upholstery by removing it with a lint brush.

Regularly groom your pet
A well-groomed pet is less likely to get a car interior dirty or full of fur. The ASPCA recommends bathing your dog at least every three months, but if your pet is a frequent car traveler, monthly bathing could be preferable. Brushing or combing daily, especially prior to a car ride, is another good way to prevent your animal from spreading fur, dirt and body oil stains. Grooming also helps ensure that your dog and cat are free of fleas and flea dirt, the latter can stain upholstery and flooring. During grooming, ensure that your animal’s nails are also trimmed. This will prevent your pooch or kitty from scratching or puncturing your car’s interior.

Protect your vehicle with regular detailing
While preventing animal fur and stains is possible to a certain extent, the only way to keep your vehicle looking and smelling its best is with a car interior detail. Regular interior detailing also helps ensure that problems like torn seats or pet accidents don’t become worse than is necessary. For instance, proper and prompt treatment of vomit and urine accidents leads to less chance of ongoing odor and permanent staining.

If your pet travels with you often, and it’s been awhile since a car interior detail, visit Mr. Clean Car Wash today to learn more about how a car interior detail can make your car look and smell great.
