Steam cleaning car interiors.
All of our steam cleaners units are perfect for interior detailing. You won’t believe the results!
Car interior upholstery
When used on seats, steam cleaners rehydrate, condition and restore leather. They do a fantastic job on any water-sensitive fabrics . Materials like alcantara or suede can be safely cleaned with Dupray's car steam cleaners since they produce steam with a very low water content (only 5%), which will leave your surfaces dry. The best way to steam clean car upholstery is to apply steam using the triangular tool with a microfiber cloth. For hard surfaces, ou can use the bristle side directly without a cloth for heavy dirt – then vacuum. Steam cleaning is also the best method for removing dye transfer or stains from leather seats.
Steam cleaning windows is far easier than using chemical products, as it doesn’t leave any streaks behind and is completely safe for the health of those using it. Apply steam with the window tool and use the squeegee side to remove the humidity or spray steam directly on the surface and wipe with a clean microfiber cloth.
Sticky residue -from drinks in a cup holder- is easily dislodged with the lance and wiped away with a microfiber cloth.
Door jambs and trims
High steam pressure quickly blows away dirt and grease while the heat melts away stuck-on residue, resulting in completely restored trim. Easily wipe away the remnants after steaming with a microfiber cloth.
Consoles and dashboards
Using steam on the dashboard and steering wheel effectively removes dust and dirt. The low-moisture steam emitted by Dupray steam cleaners is applied with the lance on surfaces like the radio, steering wheel controls, knobs, ventilation systems, buttons and switches to easily steam away odors and dirt.
Steam cleaning car door panels easily melts away dirt and residue. Pass the triangular tool -wrapped with a microfiber cloth- over the surface and set at the low-pressure setting. The best commercial steam cleaners can also lifts stains, oil and dirt from armrests, speaker grills and window switches.
Allergy associations recommend steam as the best way to kill allergens and dust mites. The high pressure and heat produced by steam cleaners effectively dislodge dirt, dust and pathogens in the ventilation system with a quick burst of steam through each vent.
Steam cleaning car carpets and mats.
Restore your car carpets with Dupray steam cleaners.
Car carpets steaming
Steam cleaners removes dirt and odors from the carpet and the bristles will lift the fibers of the carpet to rejuvenate the overall look of the carpet. The carpet only takes a few minutes to dry after cleaning. Vacuum afterwards for perfect lines.
Steam cleaning to remove salt stains
Dupray steam cleaners easily dissolve salt tracked into the car from winter roads. Remove the salt rocks using the steam cleaner and a car detailing brush, then wipe with a microfiber cloth for instant dissolution of the residue.
Steam vacuuming carpets and mats
The Carmen Super Inox™ is the best commercial steam cleaner with wet and dry extraction capability. Offered either on 110V or 220V power, it is the most powerful commercial-grade steam extractor available. This versatile steam cleaner performs the same functions as a carpet extractor but also cleans hard surfaces. It comes packed with various car detailing attachments, and there is an optional upholstery metal tool available for purchase. The Carmen Super Inox can injects detergent into the steam and onto the carpet. The significant extraction power of the unit (2200mm of water column lift) results in the complete removal of all odors, dirt and stains. Most carpets dry in just minutes.
Exterior car steam cleaning.
*Note that a 220V-powered unit is required for exterior car cleaning.
Dupray’s Steam Box™ and Carmen Super Inox™ commercial steam cleaners have a sufficiently high temperature,
steam volume and pressure to effectively detail car exteriors.*
Auto body steam cleaning
Steam cleaning is becoming an increasingly popular method for cleaning the exterior body of automobiles. As noted above, the steam cleaner must be very high-powered for use in auto body cleaning. With less than a gallon of water, you can clean the exterior of a car from top to bottom. Almost no water is text-left on the ground after cleaning, which provides the flexibility to detail an automobile anywhere. The exterior of a car is not a smooth finish; it has many valleys and pores. These trap dirt and wax, which, over time, make your car look dull and faded. Steam opens the pores of the clear coat and valleys, and blows out the dirt and wax, restoring the paint to its original shine.
Tree sap removal
The sap that drips onto cars from trees is particularly difficult to remove. Insulated by a microfiber cloth on the triangular tool, steam easily melts the sap and removes the stain.
Diesel fuel and exhaust
Diesel fuel leaves a layer of build-up on the car body and exhaust tips, which can be lifted off with steam.
Wheels and rims
Wheels, rims and brakes quickly become coated with a heavy layer of brake dust. By using just steam, or with the injection of boiling water, you can melt away the brake dust and easily flush it away.
Under the Hood - Steam Cleaning a Car Engine
Car engines become coated with dust, carbon, oil and grease. Most steam cleaners are not sufficiently powerful to clean this space, but using either the Hill Injection™, Steam Box™ and Carmen Super Inox™ steam cleaners, the engine can be detailed in minutes and will end up looking like new. Adding detergent directly in the steam helps flush away the most tenacious grease. The application of steam near electronics and sensors is much safer than using a pressure washer. Steam cleaning is the perfect tool to get a showroom-clean engine.
