NISSAN NV PASSENGER VAN
April 1, 2018
Winter can be harsh on your NV Passenger between all the salt, snow, and debris that often gets left behind by your passengers, not to mention that lingering after-winter smell. Since your business is all about making a good impression, you should take the time to freshen up your NV Passenger with a thorough spring cleaning now that winter is over. Follow these instructions to get your van looking and smelling spring fresh in time for the next wave of travelers.
The first place to start is by getting rid of any trash that accumulated over the season. Take some time, and a flashlight, and look in all the nooks and crannies. You might be surprised by all the stuff you find.
Now that you’ve gotten your van cleared of trash, it’s time for a good vacuuming. Be sure to move from the top down, remove the floor mats and use vacuum tools to get in all the tight spaces.
Clean the floor.
Remove the floor mats, Shake them off and use the vacuum to suction off any loose dirt. Use a wide vauum attachment for the floor, sliding the seats all the way forward and back to get under them. You may need to use an extender with the attachment to reach all the way under the seats. Use a smaller, narrower attachment to reach around the floor pedals and the areas between the seats and the console.
Clean everywhere else.
Use the soft brush attachment to clean the dashboards, doors and both sides of the visors. Then clean the seats with the same attachment, being careful not to scratch any leather. A smaller attachment may be needed if there is debris between the seat and seat back.
If you have carpeted floor mats and cloth seats, use some automotive upholstery and carpet cleaner and a heavy-duty scrub brush to get them clean.
If the carpet has any stains and heavily soiled areas, spray it with carpet or upholstery cleaner. Let it sit for the amount of time stated in the directions on the container. Vacuum the area once again to remove the cleaner from the carpet. Repeat if necessary. Or, try a pressure washer on the floor mats if the grime is extra resistant.
If that doesn’t work, consider replacing them with our All-Weather Floor Mats.
After all that winter driving, your van’s windows will need some extra attention, especially on the inside. Here’s the best way to get them sparkling:
It’s smart to replace your windshield wiper blades after a long winter too. You don’t want to be caught in a spring shower with worn-out wiper blades that don’t do the job.
What good is a clean interior if the air circulating inside your Nissan isn’t as fresh? The cabin air filter gets dirtiest over the fall and winter, so it’s a good time to replace it to help keep you and your passengers breathing easy through the spring. Visit a Business Certified® Dealer to get Priority Service from technicians you can trust.
Make sure the first spring car wash is a thorough one that gets the winter grime and salt out of cracks and under the edges. Don’t forget, the underbody needs a good flushing and to pay extra attention to the wheels. Finish with a car wax to make your Nissan looks extra polished and help protect the paint.
Last but not least, don’t forget to check under the hood. Leaves, debris, and even dirt can get into the engine area. In some cases, just wiping down the edges is enough. In other cases, you may need to consider having the engine wiped off or professionally cleaned.
Appearances are everything in your business. So keeping your NV Passenger clean and fresh inside and out is crucial. Another great way to think about freshening up your Nissan is by adding a wrap1 or updating your existing wrap.[]
