Deep Cleaning a Mom's DIRTY SUV | Complete Transformation and Satisfying Car Detailing!

Deep Cleaning a Mom's DIRTY SUV | Complete Transformation and Satisfying Car Detailing!
hey what's up guys and welcome to the video today's vehicle is a 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe it's mostly used to haul kids around so as you can imagine it's gotten really really

dirty

okay so having a look around the vehicle and I feel like this car exemplifies exactly how fun it is to get to drive in the winter up here in Canada because every square inch of this thing is absolutely hand blasted with dirt and rose salt especially on the back end where it's hard to even tell what

color it is now moving to the inside and it's immediately clear that this vehicle is in need of some serious

cleaning

as there's dirt and debris everywhere you look the carpets and seats are really

dirty

and some of the interior panels have clearly seen their fair share of kids

shoes and now just before we jump into the video take a second and make sure you're subscribed to the channel I post a new video like this every week so make sure you've got the bell on to so
you get notified when they go live all right well as you can see I've got a pile of work ahead of me to get this vehicle

ly transformed so sit back relax and enjoy all right so as I get started on the pre wash rinse here I figured I would let you know that I've recently picked up an electric pressure washer because I was getting tired of needing to have the garage doors cracked so my Honda could exhaust so the unit I bought is a 110 volt Bertolini pressure washer that has two
and a half horsepower and 1,900 PSI and although it's not quite as strong as my Honda it does just as good of a job I've used it on the past couple of details I've done and I've been very very impressed with it so if any of you were curious I'll leave the link to it down in the description moving to the back here and where most of the dirt is and since I know a lot of you who watch these videos really enjoy seeing the pressure washing I figured I'd let you know that I
just posted a pressure washing compilation video over on the second channel it's nothing but pressure washing of all the dirtiest vehicles I've done over the past few months so go check that out after this video if you're interested now if any of you were wondering what kind of rims these are because I feel like they might only be common up here in Canada they're black steel rims and they're generally used for winter tires because they're so cheap I'm fairly certain
that most sizes are well under 100 bucks apiece and then having the tires mounted already just makes swapping over to your winter tires that much easier now the easiest way to get these door jams cleaned is to spray them out with a pressure washer and for anyone out there who might be a little bit leery of doing this just have to get nice and close with the wand and keep a steep angle and if you're careful you can absolutely keep the interior dry and save yourself a ton of time now
back to the wheels here and because these rooms were already super rusty and the paint was flaking off I didn't want to risk doing any further damage to them with my wheel brush so I opted to leave them for now and I'll just make sure they're nice and clean when I dry the vehicle later all right so covering the vehicle with foam I'll then go around with a forest hair detail brush and use it to lift any trap dirt out of the crevices and get in behind the gas door where I can't

reach with my wash guy okay with the vehicle drip drying a bit I'll turn to these

dirty

floor mats first get them sprayed off and then I'll use some a PC and a soft brush to get them nice and clean all right so with all the customers personal items removed from the vehicle it's time to get started on vacuuming and the first thing I'll do is go around all the doors and interior trim and get down into the crevices to get all the dust out with a force hair detail brush and
these are super helpful to get down into the cup holders or the door handles or it's impossible to reach with a vacuum then for the more delicate areas that are more prone to scratches I'll use the ultra soft brush to gently loosen the dust so it can be sucked away if any of you are curious where you can get these detailed factory brushes I've got the link down in the description so feel free to check it out if you're interested now no matter the vehicle I always worked my way
top-down when I'm vacuuming and usually back to front with the seats and carpets and with seats it's always important to really really stretch the scenes out as that's where the dirt likes to hide now you might notice that there was a little bit of hair in the carpets and I thought about going to grab the Lily brush but see how easily it was being sucked up by the vacuum honestly it just wasn't quite bad enough for it the hair really wasn't embedded in the fibers and was
able to be vacuumed up without a lot of effort so I've probably mentioned before but while I'm vacuuming I'm making a mental note of where the dirtiest areas of the vehicle are and thinking about exactly how I want to attack them later now obviously I'll use the Bissell on these carpets but for other areas where there's lots of grime I'm already making a game plan in my head of what I'm going to use on each area here's everything the vacuum sucked out of this
car honestly it's more than I thought there would have been all right so getting started on these

dirty

seats and the one tip I have for extracting seats while they're inside the vehicle is to recline the front seats as far back as they will go so it's going to give you better access to the console side of the seat and also make it easier for you to see what you're doing now after spraying on something like carpet solution I'm using the drill brush to agitate and get the
dirt loosened up and then starting with the extractor I'll make several passes over the seat continuing to spray water to help to further dilute the remaining solution and I've probably said before but when you're extracting on seats you want to make sure you're pressing down fairly hard over the last couple passes to make sure you're compressing the foam underneath so you can get as much of the water out as possible and if you guys are curious as to what I'm using here
deep cleaning a mom s dirty suv complete transformation and satisfying car detailing
or where you can get it I've got the link to the carpet solution the drill brushes and the extractor down in the description so feel free to check that out as all of this equipment is very reasonably priced and works incredibly well here's a quick before-and-after shot of the seat and it honestly looks brand new again alright moving down to the carpets and despite the rubber floor mats there's still a few really

dirty

spots so the process is exactly the same as for the seats
with the exception being that I'll typically use a little bit more solution on carpet since the padding underneath the carpet is really thin that's a lot easier to make sure it's dry when I'm done extracting so one of the questions I get asked a fair bit is whether I put solution in the bissell or not and the answer is no just use hot water in the tank and the reason for that is because I pretreat with solution so if I had solution in the tank I would constantly be
adding more solution when I sprayed it really wouldn't make any sense so using just hot water gives me the ability to continually further dilute any remaining solution so I can be sure that I can get it all out here's the bucket full of

water that was pulled from these carpets and seats gross now turning to the interior trim and using some of my McGuire's D 101 all-purpose cleaner diluted 10 to 1 I'll wipe every surface down with a damp microfiber towel using a
detail brush wherever necessary and then immediately wipe off any APC residue so on the console lid here it was super

dirty

so instead of scrubbing it just for the towel I'm using the steamer to help loosen that dirt and it's able to get this clean in a fraction of the time I think I mentioned it last video too but that's really the beauty of having a tool as versatile as this mcculloch steamer is you can use it in so many different ways all around the entire vehicle or even in your
house as well it comes with a mop attachment so I would highly recommend giving the steamer a look if you're in the market for one the link is down in the description along with almost every other product and tool that I use so feel free to check it out if you're interested now to really make the interior pop and give it some UV protection I'm using my favorite product and that's the 303 aerospace protectant which is going to dry to a nice matte finish and leave the entire
interior looking incredible now I'm switching things up a little bit and using some of this Wolfgang silica spray which is going to give the paint some added gloss and it's also super easy to apply all you have to do is spray it on and then immediately wipe it off with a microfiber towel flipping the towel over for the final wipe now the bottle says this can last for up to six months but of course that's going to vary depending on the environment and the conditions the vehicle sees
but a silica spray like this definitely serves as a good substitute if you aren't able to go all out on a ceramic coating since those are quite a bit more expensive second last step here is to get the block exterior plastic trim dressed and UV protected with 303 and as you can see it does a really great job of reviving faded exterior plastics alright guys and nine hours later I've got the Santa Fe
