Interior Secrets: How to Preserve Your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Carpet Kit
You may not notice it, but you bring dirt and other debris into your vehicle whenever you step inside it. Although it's not intentional, normal use leads to gradual wear and tear of your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 carpet kit. But there's no need to worry since there are ways to preserve your carpet's flawless look. Here are some of the tips and tricks you can try:
- Dilute coffee spills right after you've incurred them.
Nothing beats a brand-new car with a sleek and nice-looking interior. But this can easily be ruined by food and beverage stains on the carpet flooring. Among the most common carpet stains are coffee spills. To prevent them from turning into an unsightly stain, dilute the coffee spills immediately using cool water. Get some paper towels or a clean cloth and blot the spills. If the stains persist, you may try spraying some glass cleaner and soaking the affected area for about five minutes before blotting them again. After the stain has been completely removed, you might want to apply some carpet protector to prevent future stains.
- Get rid of bad odors.
Even if your car is brand new, it's still prone to losing that "new car" smell after some time. Due to the variety of food and other things that you bring into your vehicle, strong odors may develop inside. To remove the stench from the carpet, you can sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda or borax all over the carpet flooring. You can let it sit for about 30 minutes before vacuuming out the car. In addition, you may want to add air fresheners to keep your car's interior smelling good after the cleanup.
- Revive faded carpet using ammonia.
Instead of spending dollars in buying a new replacement carpet, you can try brightening a faded carpet with ammonia. But before you start with the application, you need to vacuum the carpet first to eliminate dirt and debris. Once clear, you can start mixing a half cup of clear ammonia to a pint of water. To check if the solution doesn't harm the carpet's material, test it first on a discrete area. When you've confirmed that it's safe, use a sponge mop to apply the mixture on the carpet. Take note that if your carpet is made of wool, then a different solution would work for you.
