Autohaus Polishing uses either a hot water extraction machine for car upholstery shampoo and decontamination treatment. Our hot water extractor produces anywhere from 180-200 degrees Fahrenheit of hot water, effectively breaking down while extracting the harmful elements and stains within your vehicle’s carpets and seat fabrics.
Using Steam for Car Upholstery Shampoo
Another choice for car upholstery shampoo treatment is to use steam. For this application, Autohaus Polishing uses a dry vapor steamer. This machine generates very hot steam with very little moisture, unlike our extraction option. Since the steam generated from this machine is extremely hot, it is actually possible to clean and decontaminate the interior of your vehicle without the use of any chemicals, which is important to chemical-sensitive vehicle owners! Our dry vapor steamer can be used to clean lightly soiled carpeting, seat fabrics, leather seats, headliners, and some interior trim panels.
Every vehicle owner is different with their driving habits. Factoring this in, our IDA certified techs expect that each car will be exposed to different levels of usage throughout the course of a year. We understand that some vehicles will require a more thorough cleaning than others. However, there is no denying that the carpets and seating areas are one of the most heavily used parts of your vehicle. It is very important to keep these areas especially clean for hygienic reasons. For example, if you have pets or children, then it is more likely that your vehicle will become a breeding environment for a variety of bacteria in as little as three months! Children will usually leave food deposits throughout their seating areas while pets may attract bacteria from areas before they entered the vehicle.
As you can see, frequently performing a car upholstery shampoo decontamination is essential for the health of your vehicle’s occupants. Contact Autohaus Polishing today to schedule your appointment!
