What do you need to vacuum your car?

Are the crumbles of the children in the car or does a four-legged friend regularly jump in the back? Then you have to vacuum the car regularly. Unfortunately, a special car vacuum cleaner does not exist, but with the right attachments you can go a long way with a regular vacuum cleaner.

Handheld vacuum or stick vacuum

If you do not want to depend on a cord at all, then a stick vacuum may be a good choice for you. This is a vacuum cleaner with a battery. Make sure that you choose a steel vacuum cleaner with a built-in handheld vacuum , long battery life, and enough brush heads. This way you know for sure that you vacuum the entire car before the battery is empty.

Cord length

If you want to vacuum with a regular vacuum, a vacuum cleaner with a long cord is handy. The longer the cord, the fewer extension cords you need. Look for vacuum cleaners with at least 8 meters of cable length. The action radius is more than 10 meters and this gives you more room for maneuver.

(flexible) crevice nozzle

Flexible crevice nozzle

Most vacuum cleaners have a crevice tool. This is a narrow nozzle that makes it easier to reach places that are difficult to reach. When cleaning the car you use this nozzle, for example, to get between the car seats. To make this even easier, there are also flexible crevice tools. You bend this at any angle so that you can reach just that little bit better.

Furniture nozzle

Use the upholstery tool for the large surfaces in the car. This is actually a small version of the regular nozzle. With this brush you can clean the upholstery of the car seats, make the parcel shelf dust-free or you can vacuum the mats on the floor. This brush is almost always supplied as standard with the vacuum cleaner, but can also be ordered separately.

Motorized mini brush / mini turbo brush

If pets are regularly loaded into the car, animal hairs are also lurking around. To easily remove from the cover, you need a slightly more powerful brush. A motorized mini-brush or mini-turbo brush then comes in handy. If you often have grass or other bulky dirt in the car, this brush is also recommended.

Soft dusting brush

Some surfaces in a car are vulnerable, such as the dashboard, the mirrors or the inside of the door. To make these parts dust-free too, use a relief brush. The soft hairs of this brush prevent scratches. You also use these brushes to vacuum other parts, for example ventilation grilles or sound boxes.
