How Do I Clean Car Fabric Mats? | BCS Cleaning Specialists

Well, it’s another glorious Fall in Utah, and you know what that means – the final hurrah of outdoor grilling, camping, lazy Sunday afternoons spent lounging about on a picnic blanket listening to live music. And assorted grit and grime unceremoniously stamped into your car. How to resolve the situation? Have no fear, in true BCS save-the-day style, here is your three step guide to rescuing your car mats from the worst the season has to throw at them.

1 – Vacuum them. 

Yes, I know this seems a little obvious. But it’s really rather shocking how few people think to just run a vacuum attachment over their mats until the grime has well and truly settled in for the long-haul. Use the hose attachment on your vacuum to detach even the most determined pieces of mountain detritus from your car mats. 

2 – Brush them. 

Using a stiff-bristled hand brush, lay your car mats on the ground and give them a jolly good brushing to loosen and remove anything particularly stubborn.

3 – Wash them. 

Hold on a second! I see you recoiling in  horror at the thought – car mats are much sturdier than you may think (which is why we put them on the floor and then walk all over them), and stand up to the rigors of the washing machine very well. Just run them through a cold cycle with regular washing detergent and leave on a flat surface outside to dry in Utah’s gloriously dry heat.

And voila! Your car mats will be good as new in a jiffy – no need for expensive detailing. Of course, if the detritus has been left on your mats for any length of time or if this all just sounds a bit too much like hard work in the unpredictability of a Utahn fall, give the professionals at BCS a call at 801 561 1730 – we can easily add your car mats onto your next house carpet cleaning and have them spick and span in a jiffy.

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
