Cleaning your Toyota truck bed is a great way to extend its life and maintain the resale value of your truck in Breinigsville. If you own a Tacoma or Tundra pickup from Krause Toyota, follow these steps to keep your bed in great shape.
Remove dirt and debris
Get a broom and brush to sweep out the dirt, debris, leaves, and other accumulated material in the bed. For major cleaning jobs, you may even need a shovel.
Spray the bed liner
Next, use a high-pressure washer to spray the bed liner. Start at the back of the window and work your way toward the tailgate from side to side. This will remove any remaining dirt and prepare the bed for cleaning.
Wash the bed
With the bed wet and virtually debris-free, it’s time to wash it. You can use car-washing shampoo or a specially formulated product; just make sure that the cleaning chemicals won’t damage the bed liner. Use a mop for general cleaning and a brush with stiff bristles for tougher spots.
Rinse and dry
Once the bed is clean, use the high-pressure washer to deep rinse all of the soap and muck. Then, let the truck dry in the sun or use a dry cloth if it’s cloudy. It’s important to get the bed completely dry to avoid fungal and mildew growth, especially if you plan on covering it with a tonneau cover.
