How to Clean Your Car’s Interior – A Pro Guide

Lambency Detailing

Caring for your car’s interior is just as important as caring for its exterior, you’d want the inside to look as new as you first got your car. But for some reason, you don’t have the time to properly clean your car’s interior and give it the attention it needs.

Over time, you’ll notice that dust starts to accumulate in unreachable areas of your car’s interior, your leather seats begin to dry out, and your car’s interior starts to fade due to prolonged exposure to the sun. 

While a basic cleaning process such as vacuuming the floor mats and wiping the interior may help to remove the dust from your car, it’s not enough to keep your car looking presentable. Instead, giving your car full detailing which typically includes vinyl cleaning, dressing, carpet shampooing, and leather conditioning will refresh your car’s interior. 

Detailing your car’s interior may feel like a chore but it’s the best way to keep your car looking clean and presentable. Also, you’ll benefit from it as we tend to spend more time in the car and on the road than at home.

Car Wash vs Car Detailing

A car wash and car detailing may seem similar in the sense that both involve cleaning and maintaining your car’s look and touch, but a car detailing is more than just a simple car wash. It’s about reaching into the unreachable corners of your car and getting rid of anything nasty in your car.


Car Wash

A car wash is your typical inside-out wash that involves basic exterior washing and interior cleaning such as vacuuming and wiping down hard surfaces from your car. It’s the perfect car treatment for those of you who regularly drive your car around the island.

So, a basic wash to remove all the dirt from your car is the way to go, easily taking less than an hour to complete. In a drive-through car wash, the job involves washing your car’s exterior with shampoo, typically done with 30 minutes.

By giving your car a regular wash, it will help minimise build-ups of dirt, grime, and other nasty things on your car’s surface, be it on the exterior or interior. 

Additionally, if you have children who eat in the car or regularly bring your pets out, you’ll want to give your car a regular wash to prevent unpleasant stains and odours from settling in, which a car detailing service can provide.


Car Detailing

A car detailing, on the other hand, is far more in-depth and a whole lot more time-consuming than your normal car wash.

Typically, a car exterior detailing procedure involves washing, waxing, and detailing your car’s exterior to restore your vehicle’s finish to its original condition. 

Car Interior detailing such as vacuuming and deep cleaning will also be conducted on your car to keep the interior spick and span. This includes deep cleaning the interior glass surfaces, steam cleaning your interior and pest fumigation to exterminate harmful insects.

This is so that your car will look brand new while minimising the appearance of wear and tear, and improve your car’s resale value. 

That said, a car detailing typically takes more than several hours to complete. At times, you may have to leave your car with the detailers for a day, so that they can do a thorough job at giving your car the attention it needs. 

Luckily, you don’t have to get your car detailed as often as you wash them. Once or twice every few months will suffice.

The Car Interior Detailing Process

Much like keeping your car’s exterior looking clean and shiny, a clean interior is essential to ensuring that you have a pleasant experience in using your car. That said, we’ll be sharing the interior car cleaning process that every car undergoes at our detailing workshop. Should you require a professional detailing service, consider sending your car to Lambency Detailing.



Vacuuming the car’s interior is the most important step to cleaning your vehicle’s interior. You’ll first need a vacuum with an extension hose and several attachments to reach into every nook and cranny of your car. 

Work from the top down so that the substances that spill and fall throughout your cleaning process can be sucked by the vacuum when you clean the carpet and seats. Be sure to use the different attachments for different surfaces as well as to clean hard-to-reach areas.



Just as you have different hair shampoo for different hair types, cars too have a variety of cleaners for different types of surfaces. This includes the carpet, upholstery, leather, and plastic. Be sure to use the right product for a proper cleaning of your car’s interior. 

If you find it difficult to clean your car’s carpet with the cleaning product, you can use a steam cleaner. However, it can be expensive to buy or rent one for one-time use. Once you’ve applied the right cleaning product on the right surface, make sure to remove the excess soap with a clean, slightly damp cloth.



After all the vacuuming and cleaning, it’s time to condition the interior of your car. This is especially important for your seats, leather or not, as well as other high traffic areas such as the steering wheel and the side of your doors, etc.

If you have leather seats, treat them with a specially-formulated conditioner to prevent your seats from drying out due to Singapore’s hot weather. As for other surfaces that are made of vinyl or plastic, use a non-greasy product to enhance your car interior’s original shine.
