Cleaning Up Your Car's Interior

3 Reasons To Have Your Car Detailed Before Picking Up Your Mom From The Airport

Most people have all intentions of keeping their vehicle as clean as possible, but the sad truth of the matter is, a lot of folks have a hard time finding time to clean the car appropriately. If you have managed to accumulate a pretty sad mess in your vehicle, and your mom is coming home for a holiday visit, you're likely dreading the idea of her seeing such a disaster. Taking your vehicle to a professional auto detailing service is a nice thing to do before your mother arrives. Here is a look at why. 

Make mom feel like you've really got your stuff together. 

Moms worry. They just do, and they often illogically worry about things that may have no real bearing. For example, if you pick her up and you have too many fast food packages still hanging out in the back seat, she may worry that you are only eating junk. Likewise, if your car hasn't been cleaned in months, she may worry that you are overworked and overstressed or feel like she should have taught you to take care of your belongings. If your car is detailed when she gets in, it can give the impression that you've got your stuff together, so she will be less likely to find a reason to be worried. 

Make sure your mom has a clean place to ride on the way to your house. 

Your mom may be dressed to impress when she comes to visit, and having to get into a dirty car and risk getting dirty herself may not be the most desirable thing. If you have your car detailed in advance, you won't have to be concerned that the old ketchup stain on the seat or the dog hair on the armrest gets on her nice outfit while she rides in your vehicle. During the auto detailing process, all of these things will be taken care of so you (and your mom) can ride in the car and stay clean. 

Make time for everything else before mom comes to visit. 

If you don't get a visit from your mother often because she lives so far away, there is no doubt that you will have a full list of to-dos to tackle before her flight arrives and she steps into your home for the first time. You may be busy cleaning the house, making plans about what to do during her visit or where to go, and getting a place ready for her to sleep while she visits. You may not have the necessary time to completely clean your car, and stopping to clean the car can detract time from something else that may be more pressing.
