Making sure your Mercedes-Benz is kept clean will not only keep it looking great, but it will lessen the degradation to components caused by mud, dirt and other foreign bodies.
A regular, thorough cleaning routine is therefore important to maximise your own driving experience and is best practice to help maintain the value of your vehicle. For finance customers, it may help avoid penalty fees at the end of your contract.
As we're in the season of the Spring Clean, we wanted to provide our tips and tricks on how you can best look after your Mercedes-Benz. First up, we advise how to keep your interior looking and feeling its best.
Interior Cleaning Routine.
Beyond just for the lifespan of interior features, the comfort and convenience of our cars can be greatly improved by a regular clean.
How often you clean inside your car completely depends on how much outside dirt is regularly brought inside and such things as whether you have children or pets. As a rule of thumb, stains or mud should be removed as soon as possible. Otherwise, a monthly spruce following the steps below should keep any potential problems in check.
1 - Remove any rubbish and take out the car mats to clean separately.
2 - Do a thorough sweep with a vacuum, making sure to get into all the cracks.
3 - Clean the inside of your windows followed by your seats and the surrounding upholstery. Treat your footwells for particularly ground in dirt.
4 - Wipe down the dashboard, steering wheel and window trims.
