Chevrolet Camaro Carpet Kit
Quick Maintenance Tips for the Chevrolet Camaro Carpet Kit
Like the carpeting on your home, the carpet in your Chevrolet Camaro should be maintained on a regular basis. Dirt, stains, and foot traffic can quickly wear out the carpet fibers; but with proper care, you can keep the carpet in good condition and save you a lot of money in a replacement kit. Here's a quick guide on how to maintain the Chevrolet Camaro carpet kit.
- Clean up any loose dirt and debris using a vacuum with a brush attachment.
Vacuuming the carpet at least on a weekly basis can help keep dirt, food particles, and other debris from building up. But to get those particles that are deeply embedded onto the carpet fibers, we recommend using a brush attachment alongside the vacuum. The brush should help make dirt and debris "pop out" from the carpet fabric, making it easier for it to be picked up by the vacuum. If a vacuum attachment is not available, you can use a carpet brush to sweep the carpet before vacuuming.
- Use a carpet cleaner to remove stains on the carpet.
For general stains, we recommend washing the carpet with warm water and carpet cleaner. Specially designed to clean carpets and fabric upholstery, carpet cleaners will not damage the fabric or cause the color to fade unlike standard laundry detergent. Use a hard-bristled brush to scrub the cleaner into the fabric and let it sit for 30 minutes to allow the cleaning solution to break down the stains. Dry the carpet by blotting it out with towels or thick absorbent rags.
- Remove grease with paint thinner and salt.
Grease and other oil-based stains can be difficult to remove with standard cleaning solutions, but you can clear them up by rubbing it with paint thinner and a cotton cloth. Afterwards, cover the stain with salt until the remaining grease has been absorbed. Make sure to test the effect of the paint thinner on the colorfastness of the carpeting first, however, before starting.
- Brighten fading carpets with ammonia.
Use a sponge mop to apply a mixture of half cup clear ammonia and a pint of water. This should be able to restore faded carpets immediately. Do not use this on wool carpeting, however, as ammonia will damage the wool fibers.
