What to do if somebody gets sick in your car

Many drivers have had the misfortune of having somebody vomit in their car. Whether it’s a passenger who has had too much to drink, somebody who suffers from motion sickness, a sick baby, or even a sick pet, the smell is always overpowering.

The words “vomit” and “car” are not something any vehicle owner likes to hear. Just the thought of the initial clean up is enough to turn even the toughest of stomachs. Not to mention the smell that seems to linger no matter how hard you wipe, rub, scrub, or spray.

If somebody does have a rather unfortunate vomiting episode inside your car, the key is to clean up as much of it as you can immediately. If you are driving, you should pull over or wait until you get home before cleaning anything. It’s important to remove any solid items before they harden and basically get “stuck” in the carpet, on your upholstery, or other parts of the interior. Do not use any chemicals! You don’t want to make the smell worse or damage the interior of your vehicle. Quality car detailing products are very different from regular household detergents. It’s important that you leave the rest to a professional.

If possible, try to leave your car windows open. This will not get rid of the smell but it will ensure that the car doesn’t mess quite as bad is it would if you close all the windows and doors. Call a professional as soon as possible. That same day or the next morning would be ideal in order to book a prompt appointment.
