Is Drop Stop Car Wedge is Important?

Assuming you’re already seated and the car is running, you normally struggle to find the thing you dropped underneath your seat only to end up hurting your wrist, your arm or your shoulder. The danger is even greater for the driver as he or she searches with one hand on the floor while focusing on the road.

Fortunately, a couple of guys with creative minds have made available a new and useful invention that solves this problem. The product is known as the Drop Stop car wedge. It may just be a small item but it’s very useful for drivers and even their passengers. I purchased one when I found out about it and it’s been really helpful.

What this seat wedge does is catch small things so they don’t fall right to the floor or in the inner pockets in between the two front seats where the stick shift is located. This means that whatever you drop while you’re driving, you can retrieve in an instant.

This seat wedge is also available in the same black color as that of the car seat gap so it sits there and appears to be invisible. With this creative tool installed in your vehicle, whatever you drop on the sides while fumbling with your keys or mobile phone from your pocket or from your bag can be easily retrieved without much difficulty.

The Drop Stop car wedge is made from high grade neoprene, a material which is water and stain proof. Being a stretchable material, it can fit any size of gap between your car seat and console or the gap between the door and your car seat. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using a pick-up, van, a sedan or truck because the product can be used in any type of vehicle.

Installing the seat wedge is simple. You only need to slip the hole into the seat belt buckle and push the Drop Stop into the gaps between the seats. The Drop Stop seat wedge will stay in its place even if you move your seat back and forth.

Distractions while driving can be dangerous to people behind the wheel as these are one of the most common causes of road accidents. One’s eyes should always be focused on where they are going. With the Drop Stop in place, you can rest assured that nothing will fall under the seat and you’ll be able to find everything without endangering yourself or having to dig the items out from under the seat later.

As a car owner, I am grateful for the Drop Stop and for the people behind this unique invention.

Great Auto Detailing Tips

Hard Surface Cleaning

The hard exterior surfaces require powerful cleaning systems, such as a pressure washer. The machines utilize highly pressurized water to blast away residues from vehicle surfaces. The use of hot water or steam units, also referred to as mobile car wash or steam car wash machines, enables users to also soften and dissolve tree sap, grease, mud, and other substances for faster removal. As long as the pressure level of automotive pressure washers does not exceed 1500 psi, they can be used on painted vehicle bodies, windshield and windows, and other surfaces.

The hard surfaces within the vehicle require a different kind of machine, a steam cleaner. These systems utilize “dry” vapor steam at high temperatures up to 360•°F to dissolve dirt and stains. Steam cleaning systems are ideal for cleaning the dashboard, consoles, and door jambs; spot cleaning upholstery and carpeting; and cleaning windows and windshields with a squeegee attachment.

Selecting the Right System for Automotive Carpet

For interior auto detailing, low-flow carpet cleaners are the right machines. The output temperature can vary up to 210•°F. The output pressure level can range up to 500 psi. A specialized upholstery tool is also essential. Carpet wands are far too large for cleaning the tight spaces within the interiors of vehicles. Thus, a four-inch upholstery wand is ideal.

In auto detailing, it is important to know that pre-spraying carpets and upholstery with a green carpet cleaning solution is the first step. Then, carpet shampooers can be used to inject a mixture of water and a cleaning solution onto automobile carpets and upholstery. The operator can use the upholstery wand attached to the system to agitate the surface. The cleaning agents will disrupt the bond between the dirt material and the carpet fibers. The agitation will result in the formation of a residue including both the chemical and impurities. This residue is extracted completely and deposited in the recovery tank.

Drying Time

When carpet upholstery cleaning, it is important to consider drying time, the time required for the surface to dry completely after the cleaning process. • All detailing professionals want quick drying times to increase turnaround, reduce the need for vehicle storage overnight, and keep customers happy with quick and thorough results. However, if conventional carpet cleaning supplies are used, they will have to wait 8-24 hours for carpets to dry before the vehicle can be returned to the customer.

Thanks to new technology, the best carpet upholstery cleaning equipment offers a drying time of less than two hours. These carpet cleaners are equipped with low flow technology. The use of less water not only reduces drying times, it also reduces the risk of mold, mildew, or bacteria growth in damp carpets.

To offer the complete auto detailing package to your customers, it is important to have the right equipment to accomplish each individual application. Mobile car wash and steam car wash equipment, low-flow carpet cleaners, and green cleaning chemicals are a must.


Auto Detailing using Carpet Cleaners Tips

Why do suppliers not provide a single machine that can be used to clean both the interiors and exteriors surfaces of an automobile? There is a simple reason for this. These two very different types of surfaces require different levels of cleaning power. A pressure washer used on the vehicle’s interior would damage upholstery and leave carpets too wet to dry in a reasonable amount of time.

On the other hand, carpet cleaners are inherently not suitable for cleaning hard surfaces of automobile parts and components. The extraction capabilities are designed to remove stains from deep within carpet fibers, an entirely different surface than an automobile’s painted exterior. Top suppliers often offer a combo promotion, allowing auto detailers to purchase both a pressure washer and a carpet cleaner at one low price.

If you are considering the purchase of a carpet cleaner alone, here are some useful tips to guide in you in finding the right machine.

Know Your Requirements

You need to be perfectly aware of your requirements. Heated and non-heated carpet cleaners are available to handle applications with varying degrees of difficulty. For example, heated carpet extractors are ideal for the most challenging interior car cleaning applications.

Opt for Devices that Use Less Water

There are two important considerations for auto detailing. The first is the quantity of water used in the process and the second is the times required for the surface to completely dry.

The general rule is to use low quantities of water. This reduces wastage of water and frees the operator from the burden of finding a suitable place where sufficient facilities for water run-off are available. Moreover, using less quantities of water reduces the drying time required for the surface. For any auto detailing professional with limited storage space for vehicles to dry, drying time is paramount.

For ensuring that the quantity of water used is low and the drying time is as short as possible, one has to opt for a carpet cleaner equipped with low flow technology. This makes sure that very low quantities of water are used for auto detailing. As a result, wastage of water is low and the drying time is short – often as low as two hours.
