With winter right around the corner, you might already be winterizing your lawn, garden and home. You might even be winterizing your car too, like getting snow tires put on and making sure it has plenty of antifreeze. But did you know there are a few things you can do to winterize the interior of your car? We specialize in car seat repair in Bloomington and the surrounding areas, and we have a few suggestions on what you should do to make sure your car’s interior is winter-ready.
Winter can be rough on your car’s floors. Between snow and ice, not to mention de-icing salts, sand, kitty litter and more, your car’s floors can really take a beating during the winter months. Consider investing in rubber floor mats and using them during the cold and frigid winter months. Rubber floor mats are easy to clean and they do not require as much work to keep clean as cloth ones. You can always put your cloth floor mats back in when the spring months roll around again if you do not like the look of rubber.
Like your floors, car seats can definitely get dirty during the winter months thanks to salt, sand, kitty litter, moisture and more. You can invest in some nice seat covers if you want to try to avoid car seat repair. There are plenty of inexpensive seat covers that you can buy if you only want to use them during the winter. Or if you can spend a bit more, you can find really nice ones that you can use year-round. Either way, car seat covers are definitely a good bet if you are trying to avoid car seat repair.
If you have any type of leather in your car’s interior, then it is imperative you do what you can to protect it this winter. Leather is much easier to damage than cloth. Cold air can dry out your leather seats and cause them to crack. You can use a leather conditioner to help protect your leather seats, but you should be sure to avoid using any products that contain silicone.
