Leather Detailing

Your Mercedes-Benz vehicle has a leather interior, and it requires routine maintenance. Learn how clean your leather car seats here at Mercedes-Benz of Modesto, serving drivers in Stockton and Stanislaus.

  1. See if your seats are perforated.

Before you get started cleaning the leather upholstery of your Mercedes-Benz SUV, see if there are small holes, or “perforations,” in the leather. If so, avoid letting fluid seep through the perforations by applying cleaning and conditioning products to a cloth rather than directly on the surface of the upholstery.

  1. Vacuum Away Debris.

Use a vacuum hose with an attachment and plenty of suction to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the upholstery, making sure to get into the cracks and corners of the seats. If you don’t have a high-powered vacuum at home, then some gas stations around Merced will surely do the trick.

  1. Clean with a microfiber cloth.

Take a look at your owner’s manual to see what kind of leather cleaner is recommended for your vehicle’s leather upholstery. In general, a high-quality leather cleaner will work. Apply the cleaner to a microfiber cloth or to the upholstery to rub dirt from the surface.

  1. Clean with a brush.

Use a bristle brush to clean deep into the pores of the leather upholstery, brushing in a circular motion to penetrate the surface of the leather.

  1. Condition the upholstery.

Get your hands on a pH-neutral leather conditioner in order to reintroduce oils to the leather in order to ensure longevity and prevent the leather from cracking.

  1. Park the car in the shade.

Park your car in the shade around Stockton. Try to keep your car parked in the shade for the 48 hours after applying conditioner in order to allow it to dry out..
