Getting an interior detail for your car probably isn’t one of those things that you think about very often unless the inside of your car is getting particularly unpleasant. However, it does pay to think about it. Having a regular interior clean can help to keep your car in good nick, which not only makes maintenance easier and faster over the years, it also helps when you ultimately go to sell your car.

Not everyone is the same when it comes to how often they will need their car detailed. There are quite a few factors that go into it.

Let’s put it out there, first up, that the minimum for how often you should give your car an interior detail is about 4 times a year. This is to keep your car looking in ok shape.

This “4 times a year” figure also makes some assumptions. We are going to assume that you drive your car most days, you aren’t particularly messy (which can include dragging dirt into the car if you’re a tradesperson, for instance), and you don’t have pets or messy children that come in the car with you.

If your car is your “other car” that’s not driven so much, then you might get away with just 4 interior details per year.

If you have children or pets that are contributing to making your car messier – or you are finding that you are a bit messy yourself, then you may need more interior details a year, maybe once every 1 or 2 months. This is to remove the accumulation of dirt (or pet fur, etc.) that has built up over a shorter period.

The other factor which is often overlooked is the bacteria that grows in your car.  The bottom line is you spend your time in the car so why would you not want to make it pleasant and safe?

If you are going to give your car a regular interior detailing clean, then it makes sense to take care of the outside of your car at the same time, too. This may include a full exterior detail, or it might just be a wax, etc.

Leaving your interior and exterior car detailing to a professional mobile detailing company, such as Car Care, ensures that you are treating your car with the upmost care. This way you can avoid making mistakes like using the wrong product on your seats and ruining the fabric, or accidentally scratching the exterior surface of your car.  One of the most common mistakes people make is using a product that can mist up your windscreen which can be dangerous.
