Taking care of your car is the best way to maintain its value and get the most out of it. More than just routine maintenance such as checking the brake pads and regularly changing the oil every 3,000 miles, or washing the exterior as needed, your car’s interior needs to be kept clean, too, to maintain its value. A car’s interior is vulnerable to harmful UV rays that can damage surfaces. Combined with the day-to-day grind of tracking dirt in and out, spilling coffee or drinks, or scattering crumbs everywhere, your car’s interior can take a beating.
