RV Cleaning Tips – RV Interior and Exterior

Posted on Jan 26, 2021

As a leading provider of motorhome rentals in Orange County, one of our biggest goals is to turn people on to the magic of road-tripping in LA motorhomes. You will be hard-pressed to find a better provider of freedom, adventure, and quality time with loved ones than hitting the road in an Orange County CA RV rental. While 1st Choice RV loves to see clients return for adventure after adventure, we are also thrilled when some of our favourite road trippers decide that now may be the time to purchase a motorhome of their own. There is a lot to be said about owning your own RV, but it does not come without its fair share of challenges. The experts at 1st Choice, for instance, are always working diligently to ensure our fleet of Orange County CA RV rentals are mechanically sound and sparkling with cleanliness. If you opt-out of Orange County motorhome rentals, instead of choosing to purchase your own vehicle, these tasks will fall on your shoulders. Below are some foolproof tips to keeping both the interior and exterior of your RV as clean as the LA motorhomes that drive off of our lot.

Interior Cleaning

While smaller than most homes, RVs have plenty of nooks and crannies to keep clean. To do so efficiently, it is best to both have a strategy and the right tools for the job. The maintenance team at 1st Choice RV works systematically through each motorhome to ensure no corner is left undusted, no surface left unsanitized, and no stain left uncleaned. Find a system that works for you – whether you work from front to back or start in the bathroom and work your way out from there – and stick to it!

Additionally, when cleaning the interior of your RV, make sure you have the right tools for the job. All-natural cleaners should be used for all toilets and washbasins, and be sure to find one that is graded for the more delicate motorhome plumbing system. Because of the tight corners and small spaces, invest in compact vacuums, smaller mops and brooms, and specialized tools that will allow you to easily clean the hardest to reach places.

Exterior Cleaning

At the end of the day, a motorhome is a vehicle and there are fear things less appealing than a dirty car. The exterior detailing crew at 1st Choice RV puts a lot of work into the exterior of our Orange County CA RV rentals to make sure they are shining before they leave the lot. Through years of experience, we have developed a system here as well. Because RVs are such massive vehicles it is often best to start with a complete hose down. This will remove or at least loosen all dust and dirt and make the rest of the process that much easier. Once you’ve hosed down your RV, start scrubbing from the top down to avoid streaking, spreading dirt, and ultimately doubling your workload.

Finally, because RVs are so large, it can help to break your exterior cleaning project into digestible sections. Tackle one area at a time, and move systematically around the vehicle – breaking when needed. Much like the interior, try to find all-natural RV rated cleaners to really help your vehicle shine.

At 1st Choice RV, it is our business to help people enjoy the road in Orange County motorhome rentals. If we do our job well, guests will either return for additional trips or be motivated to purchase an RV of their own. Motorhome ownership can be incredibly rewarding, but it does not come without a healthy dose of responsibility. From maintenance to cleaning there is a lot to consider, and the experts at 1st Choice RV are here for you. Whether you want to discuss RV ownership or are ready to secure a rental for an upcoming adventure, give us a call today – our passionate staff is always eager to help!
