  1. Regularly clean the vehicle interior.
    Use a vacuum cleaner, special agents and, if necessary, wipes and brushes. Wipe all surfaces in the car. Check the operating instructions before using individual products. Ventilate the interior after cleaning and let it dry.
  2. Remove garbage from the car.
    Make sure there is no garbage under the seats, floor mats or child seats and in the glove box or trunk.
  3. Clean the ashtray regularly.
    If you smoke in the car, keep the ashtray clean: remove cigarette butts and ash and clean the ashtray thoroughly. Not smoking at all in the car is the best solution.
  4. Wipe up any spills immediately.
    Use absorbent rags, wipes, sponges, or paper towels. Wipe gently and don’t rub. Use special means as needed. Make sure you ventilate the car after cleaning up the spill.
  5. Replace the cabin filter promptly.
    The average lifespan of cabin filters is 10,000-15,000 km.
  6. Clean the air conditioner.
    You can try cleaning the air conditioner yourself, but we recommend that you contact a specialist and opt for antibacterial cleaning of the air conditioner.
  7. Use air fresheners.
    Pick a freshener whose type and fragrance you like best. Use air fresheners only when the source of the bad smell has been neutralized and do not try to cover it up.
