Don't Let Your GMC C1500 Carpet Kit Go to Waste with These Tips
Having a comfortable ride involves a well-maintained engine system as well as a cozy carpet flooring. When your GMC C1500 carpet kit becomes spent, there's just no excuse for you to leave them unattended. A stinky carpet can ruin your sleek ride; it's also a major turn off to your passengers. So to keep your carpet looking brand new all the time, here are a number of tips you can consider:
- Dilute beverage spills immediately after they have occurred.
Any type of spill can cause your carpet to wear out prematurely. On top of the nasty stains that these spills leave on your carpet floor, it also weakens the carpet material, making it easy to tear apart or get punctured.
You have to understand that stains left unattended for a long period of time can become harder to remove. As time goes by, the stain turns into an ugly spot on the carpet, and can even cause a foul odor inside your car. You don't have to spend anything to prevent this; just dilute the spill with water right after it occurred, so that it won't get stuck on the carpet material.
- Use ammonia to clean the carpet.
Most of the time, when the carpet gets faded or punctured, the immediate solution is a replacement. However, this can be costly and troublesome at the same time. Spare yourself the hassle of installing a new one by clearing off dirt and grime with a car vacuum cleaner.
In addition, you can also revive your faded carpet by applying some diluted ammonia. Make sure that you test the chemical mixture on a small area first, so that you can see how the carpet reacts to it. With wool carpets as an exception, the ammonia-based solution works well with rubber, vinyl, and other carpet types.
- Use baking soda as a disinfectant to eliminate foul odors.
It's obvious that you've been missing your carpet care and maintenance habits when you start smelling bad odors inside your car. To remove this foul smell, just sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda or borax on the carpet surface, and leave it for about 30 minutes. When the stench has been removed, vacuum the carpet to remove the baking soda.
