Share This Post

A good driving experience after car acquisition is about a lot of things and one of those things is a freshly smelling car. If there is a smell in your vehicle, the first question every driver asks themselves is the source of the smell and the next question is how to get rid of it. Do a car inspection to identify the source and use these tips to make sure your vehicle has a fresh smell:

  1. Vacuuming: You may choose to vacuum the entire interior upholstery of even carry out a steam cleaning session because the fabric of the car tends to hold odors for long.
  2. Air deodorant – Smoke is one of the hardest smells to get rid of; cleaning might not do the trick as it might be stuck in the air ducts. You may need to go under the hood and spray an air deodorant into the intake valve system.
  3.  Sprinkle baking soda – Any spills in the vehicle may leave some odor and one of the best and quick methods is to pour some baking soda on the area and give it a few hours before vacuuming it out.
  4. Use Charcoal – Get some charcoal from your grill stock as it is known to absorb smells very well and leaving it in the car for some time will clean up this problem.
  5. Air Freshener – Having your preferred air freshener in the car will help keep away bad odors out.
  6. Car Check-up – Some of the smells you may experience could be as a result of a fault in your engine or a gas leak. It is important to have these checked by a professional as it could result in a fire or engine malfunction.
  7. Professional Cleaning is also an option if all the do-it-yourself options fail. Let a professional do a car assessment and advise you on the best cleaning options available.
