Three Tips to Use Carpet Cleaners for Auto Detailing

Carpet cleaners and pressure washers are among the most popular auto detailing equipment. Carpet cleaning machines are mainly used for cleaning the interior surfaces of automobiles, while pressure washers are used for cleaning the exterior hard surfaces of a vehicle. The soft surfaces include mats, carpets, and seat upholstery.

The following are some tips to use carpet cleaners to clean mats, carpets, and seat upholstery.

Use Low Flow Machines
Carpet cleaning machines that provide heated output are best for auto detailing. Carpet cleaners in Daimer®’s XTreme Power® series, such as the XTreme Power® XPH-9300, come equipped with a low flow technology. The reasonably high temperature output up to 210°F coupled with low flow technology ensures two things. First, the cleaned surfaces dry up as quickly as possible. Second, water is not wasted much.

Use Multiple Wands
Ordinary carpet extractors contain just one wand – a carpet wand. However, advanced carpet cleaners have many optional wands, including stair wands and upholstery wands. These machines are the best for car detailing. A specialized upholstery wand makes the cleaning of seat upholstery more efficient and speedier.

Use Green Chemicals

Steam carpet cleaning products work by injecting a mixture of water and a cleaning agent into mats and carpets. The quality of the cleaning agent plays an important role in the cleaning process. Green chemicals, which are derived from plants and vegetables, have excellent cleaning efficiency. More importantly, these chemicals do not leave any harmful residues on the surface. Consider Daimer®’s Eco-Green® Carpet Care & Upholstery Cleaner for safe and effective cleaning.
