Has anyone had there cars interior professionally valleted. Im just wondering how they do it really.

When the clean the fabric (carpets, seats, doorcards etc), do they use just a spray cleaner and clean it that way, or do they have a carpet type cleaner that pumps water in (like the ones u use to clean household carpets?

Cheers

I use a special tool that pumps water through and i add a mix of Auto smart G101 into it. Every valeter does things differantly though.

We used to use a hot water extraction and shampoo machine but it used to make everything far too wet. We now have simpler method's with far better results, although i don't want to say how i do it
