Removing Vehicle Odors

From time to time, a vehicle's interior may emit an unpleasant odor. In most cases, owners capably remedy the problem. The first step in ridding the awful smell involves removing the trash, liquid or causative agent. Remove the floor mats and wash them with detergent or shampoo and rinse.

For upholstery, blot any liquid and remove solid waste. Scrub the affected area with a mild detergent, or an upholstery cleaner appropriate for cloth, vinyl or leather. Sprinkle baking soda on the affected spot and allow time for the powder to neutralize the odor. Vacuum the residue.

Automotive air fresheners merely mask the smell. On the other hand, more potent deodorizers are available in automotive shops. Try opening a box of baking soda and placing it on the floor, near the soiled area. If the problem persists, bring the vehicle to our Walnut Creek, CA Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek location, and consult with one of our technicians.
