you think that you take proper care of your car? Well, believe it or
not, there are things equally important as frequent oil changes or
fixing any mechanical failures. The whole drama lies in the fact that
you can easily damage some parts of your car, but you won't even see
it. This is the case as far as your car's interior is concerned.
it is the car's floor that is mostly exposed to danger. This part of
your car will certainly wear out significantly much earlier than any
part of the engine. It might even be a matter of few months that the
floor of your car looks just terribly. If you often drive during bad
weather (esp. when it's raining or snowing,) your shoes will sooner
or later get very soaked. When exposed to some higher temperatures
(usually, temperatures on the outside are lower than inside the car,)
the water starts to drip onto the car's floor. The upholstery absorbs
it and some huge stains start to come out very quickly. The problem
is, such marks are extremely hard to remove and even a relatively new
car might look badly. Not to mention the smell that will surely
from this, your car's interior is also exposed to various forms of
dirt left by its occupants. For example, if you often carry children
in the back of your car, you probably know how much clutter is there.
The passengers would often grind the dirt with their shoes and leave
some huge stains later. Such pieces of dirt are as hard to remove as
the stains left by the water dripping from your shoes.
there is a good way of protecting the interior of your car. Just
notice that you could easily avoid destroying the upholstery by not
letting the water sink into it. How to do this? For instance, you
might think about putting some materials under your shoes. To give an
example, floor mats will absorb most of the water. In addition, they
would be very easy to clean from all the dirt.
is not only the issue of the upholstery that looks badly which comes
into play here. The water that gathers under your legs might pose a
huge risk to your driving. This is especially true during all colder
periods of the year, when the water starts to evaporate. As a result,
your car's windshield, as well as side windows will fog up very
quickly. Just imagine how much of a pain in the neck would it be to
stop every now and then so as to clear the windows. However, floor
could provide the protection for the floor. In case they get too
wet, you will just need to take them out and dry which is certainly
much better than having to clear the upholstery itself. Apart from
this, don't forget that even cleaning the upholstery quite often will
not guarantee that the water will be removed totally.
