4 Easy Steps to Steam clean a dirty car
Step 1: Remove all car seats
Before you start steam cleaning, it is essential to bring out all the loose items inside your car to unveil all the mystery mess waiting for you. It also includes trash, mat, and other accessories.
Step 2: Vacuum the carpet and upholstery
You may use any vacuum of your choice to pre-clean your car.
Step 3: Steam clean the car interior
Aside from the carpet and upholstery, steam clean other areas such as leather, hard surfaces and crevices that may have accumulated dirt and grime. Depending on the job requirement, you may switch the attachment of your steam cleaner, like using a softer attachment so you won’t scratch or damage any delicate surfaces.
Important: Steam cleaning leather seats is best done with a higher quality steam cleaner so there’s more steam and less water (which can damage leather). Do a test and not concentrate the steam on one place for too long.
Step 4: Wipe off debris
Use a microfiber cleaning cloth to dry up any water left behind or residual dirt. When you use a steam cleaner, it’s not like there’s not a ton of water pouring. It’s not overly wet and it’s mostly steam.
