It may surprise you to know that your car’s interior is more dirty than your toilet seat. It’s quite disgusting when you think about it. The reality is that most people clean their bathrooms more than they clean their vehicles. We’ve seen people eat, shave, brush their hair and do makeup in their vehicles. Babies have accidents, sweaty kids are transported to and fro sports and dance classes. A lot can go down in the back seat. Where does all the hair follicles, dandruff, skin flakes, sweat and food go? It lands in the crevices of your seats, into the seat belt housing, on your dashboard and rugs.
We begin every interior detail by removing the client’s personal belongings. This includes the mats, personal effects and trash from inside your vehicle. Next, we will begin to work your upholstery with brushes, solvents and micro fiber towels that are designed to restore the surface to its original condition. We have a variety of solutions created specifically for vinyl, microfiber and leather upholstery. While we are known to work magic, Auto Detailing San Francisco cannot repair damage. We have the ability to get your car to showroom quality and beyond. If you have questions about the process, please ask and we will do our best to answer all of your queries.
Carpet, Trim and Headliners
Carpet and upholstery typically require the most TLC. The cleaning specialist will pre-vacuum the carpet before beginning the arduous process. A gentle brush combined with a proven liquid solution is used to dislodge dirt, grease, oil and gum. We do this without destroying the loops in the carpet fiber. A vehicle’s headlining is typically marred with hair products, finger prints and oils. The products used to clean headliners are strong enough to get it spotless but mild enough to prevent discoloration. Vehicle trimming is typically made of acrylic and plastic. An oil based solution is applied to restore the color and remove scuff marks without drying and cracking.
Vents, Loading Area and Trunk
Clean and contaminated air is continuously cycled through your vents. Hair follicles, dust mites and skin particles are recycled along with it. A soft brush and mini vacuum hose is used to clear vents of contaminates. When entering and exiting a vehicle, passengers place their feet in the loading area. This area becomes crowded with dirt, mud, grass and other contaminates. We use a disinfectant solution when cleaning this area. A pressure washer is used to rinse off the solution and unwanted particles. When was the last time your trunk was steam cleaned? When you trust your vehicle with us, you can trust knowing that its in good hands.
The Finishing Touches
The mats are one of the last items on the cleaning list. We are diligent in removing gum, oil, grease and mud. The process begins with a dry vacuum to remove surface particles. Next, the cleaning specialist will steam clean the mats repeatedly, until the desired results are achieved. For a shine that can’t be beat, a solution is applied to the dash and steering wheel. The product we use also acts as a moisturizer. Where most auto detailing companies fail is where Auto Detailing San Francisco wins. We use a 2 step glass cleaning method to get your windows cleaned from the inside out. If you’d like an air freshener, we have a plethora of scents to choose from.
