Cleaning The Dirtiest Car Interior Ever! Complete Disaster Full Interior Car Detailing


what’s up guys welcome back to Stauffer
garage today’s detail is of a chrysler pacifica that has a lot of carpet stains
yep that’s just the trunk alone but with all
of the processes and steps that I use today we’ll be able to get all of these
stains out on the interior on the cloth seats on the carpet get everything wiped
down and make this interior look like new so if you guys are new and you like
these sort of videos make sure you hit that subscribe button turn on
notifications let’s go ahead and get this detail going all right so the first
step with any detail is obviously get everything out of the car that is like
physical objects on the floor whether it’s the floor mats things and the cup
holders things and the door panels anything that’s underneath the seats get
all that stuff out before you can start the vacuuming process now that you have everything out of the
vehicle start with the back of the car and then work your way to the front
doing all the vacuuming one thing I try to do is to move the
seats move any panels move any coverings like for the rear seat cover for
instance here to show the mechanism try to get underneath those areas that you
typically wouldn’t get to to get any dirt out to get them clean I lucked out on this one that the stains
from any spills or anything else we’re actually not under any of the seats so
the seats themselves moved up and down and forward and back enough that I
didn’t have to worry about pulling them out to get any of the stains underneath
alright so the first step with any detail is obviously get everything out
of the car that is like physical objects on the floor whether it’s the floor mats
things and the cup holders things in the door panels anything that’s underneath
the seats get all that stuff out before you can start the vacuuming process once
you have everything out of the vehicle go ahead and vacuum the front now the
jet now that you have everything out of the vehicle start with the back of the
car and then work your way to the front doing all the vacuuming for this car
actually lucked out that majority of the stains that I found were act now after
the vacuum and I always like to try to do the carpet cleaning then and I have
this nice table set up so that way I can get any of the floor mats out in front
of me in that way I’m not hurting my back now I’m not sure where these Floor Mats
for the rear it came from the ones that are that purplish color but those are
the ones that were in the car and they actually cleaned up pretty good because
they weren’t super super thick but the other two were original and you can tell
that the driver’s side could use several different passes with the extractor
after doing two pretty heavy ones I felt that was thorough enough for this detail alright so when I’m doing the floor mats
I’m actually using the chemical guys to have our cleaner this is stuff right
here carpet upholstery shampoo and deodorizer odor eliminator it actually
has like a PEZ smell almost Mel’s like strawberry Pez we’re gonna let that sit
there for about one to two minutes before we bust out the drill brush and
then to the extraction process so that way it gives it time to soak into the
fibers let that odor eliminator kind of do its work and get that stench out of
those floor mats and then also just kind of help with that dirt getting release
from those fibers now that the floor mats are done we’re
going to go ahead and set those out to dry and then I’m going to move to the
rear of the car to focus on that large stain in the trunk for my extractor I’m not using any soap
liquid inside of it I’m actually just using plain hot water because I’m using
my spray gun to spray enough liquid and solvent onto the carpet itself to help
dilute that dirt bring it to the surface and letting it sit for about 30 seconds
or so to start breaking down some of that dirt in odor when I do the extraction process I
always try to do horizontal or vertical lines at the very end because once the
carpet dries they kind of set in that pattern which makes it kind of more
aesthetically pleasing and once we’re done with the back
portion of it I’m going to start wiping down all of those interior panels in the
back with my all-purpose cleaner the next area we’re going to tackle is
the front driver’s side wheel well this is a definitely probably the second
dirtiest spot in the vehicle and more tedious to get to because of the
location of the foot pedals and kind of just underneath the dash being hard to
get to I did find some staining that was on the
carpet fibers themselves that I wasn’t able to quite get out completely but for
the most part that driver we all did to clean up pretty nice for the driver’s seat I’m just using the
same process that I use in the carpets to start extracting the stains from
those surfaces I’m using my all-purpose cleaner to wipe
down all of the door panels and I’m also using the steam cleaner to clean up any
of the gunk that’s kind of solidified inside those door trays to help move it
out with the microfiber towel and for the door sills I’m using my
bristle brush to move any of the dirt around in a microfiber towel to wipe it
clean now the Front’s done we’re going to move to the second row and we’re
going to start focusing on the carpet itself to clean that up across the whole
thing and then we’re going to be extracting and cleaning up the car seats and sometimes I can’t come up with a
rhyme or reason why I do certain things like after I film these videos and I go
back look into the footage and I realize okay I did the rear carpets then I do
the front carpets then I did the door panels and then I went back to the rear
part like I sometimes I jump around and I can’t tell you why but during the
process of doing them I sometimes just kind of just roll with what I think
needs to happen next I do have a simple basic process that I try to follow but
for the most part sometimes it just depends on the job itself what I skip to
and move to next any of the stains that you see on the
seats cleaned up within one pass of the extractor with the drill brush and I was
really surprised I thought some of them had set him pretty strong but for the
most part they all came out with just a single pass now I’m using the steam cleaner for all
the door frames and door sills and I’m doing that because of that dirt and
everything that kind of gets in those areas is usually typically greasy and
the de steam cleaner definitely helps with loosening it up and then using the
microfiber towel to wipe clean now moving on to the dashboard which is
probably my favorite part using my bristle brush and microfiber towel and
all-purpose cleaner kind of spraying everything down using it to get into all
the different cracks and crevices and all the different intricacies of the
dashboard itself which I feel sometimes can be probably the biggest
transformation from before and after one thing I recommend is try to use your
bristle brush on the air vents before you do any wiping down of any the rest
of the car or before you even do vacuuming it might as well be one of the
first steps you do because what you can do is use your brush to move any dirt
that’s in there turn on the AC so blasts it out and that way that dust doesn’t
sit on anything that you’ve already cleaned now that we’re done cleaning everything
down with our all-purpose cleaner we’re gonna jump and start using our Chemical
Guys silk and shine to wipe all of our panels down to kind of give it that new
factory look and for the final step I always try to
do the windows last so that way I don’t get any streaking or fingerprints on
them as I’m doing the rest of the detail and the job is done and here are the
before-and-after shots for you guys the card turned out incredibly well I was
really impressed with how easily a lot of the stains came out I thought they
were gonna be a lot more worse especially in the trunk that those one
seemed pretty bad initially if you guys enjoy today’s detail
