It’s always exciting when you buy a car, whether it’s pre-owned or brand new. When you bring home your new-to-you Chevy in Eustis, Florida, it can be tempting to get behind the wheel right away. However, if you purchased a used Chevy, one of the first things you should do is clean it and then resolve to clean it consistently moving forward.
Wipe down the steering wheel
Remember that your Chevy’s previous owner and potentially others had their hands on the steering wheel. Use disinfectant to wipe down the steering wheel and get rid of any gunk that has built up.
Remove the headrest
Before driving your used Chevy home, remove your headrest or put a towel over it so your head doesn’t touch the headrest before you get a chance to clean it. Then, you should scrub and sanitize all the headrests as soon as you can.
Wash the upholstery and mats
Thoroughly vacuum and wash the car’s upholstery, including all the creases and crevices in between the seats. In addition, remove your floor mats and scrub them with shampoo and water.
Replace the cabin air filter
Make sure you are breathing fresh air in your pre-owned Chevy by replacing the cabin air filter with a brand new one and spraying the intake vent with a disinfectant. This helps ensure your ventilation system is fully sanitized without smoke or particulates lingering.
