Deep Cleaning a SMOKER'S Dirty Car | DISASTER Car Detailing & Complete Vehicle Transformation!

Deep Cleaning a SMOKER'S Dirty Car | DISASTER Car Detailing & Complete Vehicle Transformation!
hey what's up guys and welcome to the video today's

vehicle

is a 2008 mitsubishi eclipse and this thing is all kinds of filthy all right so having a look around this car and almost every single inch of it is covered in dirt as the roads have been wet and mucky over the last little while so from the wheels to the wheel wells and especially on the back end it's super

dirty

now moving inside the car and it only gets worse as i'm immediately hit by the smell of cigarette smoke and

can quickly see that the

vehicle

hasn't been cleaned in a really really long time so there's garbage and all kinds of dirt grime and ash everywhere i look and now just before we jump into the video take a quick second and subscribe to the channel so you don't miss out on any future videos like this i post a new video every week so make sure you've got the bell on so you get notified when they go live all right well i've definitely got my work cut out for me on this one so sit
back relax and enjoy the

transformation

all right so getting started on the pre-wash rinse here and i know some of you have asked how these

vehicle

s get so

dirty

on the outside and honestly with the snow and salt on the roads up here in canada if the temperatures are anywhere near zero the roads will be a mucky mess and results in about 90 percent of the

vehicle

s on the road looking like this or sometimes even worse and i also figured i'd let you know that if you stick around to the end of
this video you'll get to see the customer's reaction which isn't something i'm always able to film for you guys so i hope you enjoy it now moving to the back of the car where most of the dirt is and i have to say that it's super nice to be working on a car for a change you guys know i get a lot of trucks in with the majority of them being silverados or sierras so it's nice not having to deal with the carpeted wheel well liners and also having a small

vehicle

in should
let me get through this detail a lot faster today so now even though this car has plastic wheel well liners there's still tons of dirt in them as you can see by what's accumulating on the garage floor so if you guys are curious and want to see how i clean up the garage after a detail like this go check out my second channel the detail geek 2 i just posted a garage cleanup video a couple days ago that shows you the entire cleanup process including the floor drain all right so with the
wheels and paint as clean as i can get them with the pressure washer i'm using some of my meguire's iron remover because i noticed quite a few tiny rust spots on the car so what this stuff does is safely dissolve those iron particles that are stuck to the paint and after spraying some on and letting it sit for a few minutes it's going to react with any iron and turn purple so as you can see there was quite a bit all over this car then i'll quickly get it rinsed off because this
is by far the worst smelling product i've ever used it smells exactly like raw sewage and is incredibly potent every time i open my cupboard with all my chemicals in it i get a nice whiff of it but it definitely works really well so i guess i can't complain too much all right so with the car covered in some nice thick foam i'll go around with my boar's hair detail brush to get down in all the crevices to lift any dirt out that my wash mitt will miss and if you're curious as
to where you can get these detail factory brushes that i use the link is down in the description so feel free to check those out now just like you guys saw in that trailblazer video a few weeks ago these floor mats were super super

dirty

and way too bad for the extractor to be able to get them perfectly clean so after spraying on some of my carpet solution and letting it sit for a couple minutes i'll use the drill brush to agitate and get the dirt lifted up and then use the pressure washer

to finish the job and just like those trailblazer mats my garage was immediately overwhelmed with the smell of cigarette smoke as these mats were holding onto the majority of the smell in this

vehicle

all right so moving on to the interior now and the very first thing i have to do is get these seats out of here because with this being a small two-door car it would be really hard for me to maneuver around with them in the

vehicle

not to mention it's going to make it a hundred times easier to
clean everything with the boat next just to give myself a little bit more room i'm going to get the center console out too and they aren't usually held in by more than just a couple of screws but this mitsubishi did require that i take a few of the dash pieces out but they were just held in by clips so it was really easy all right so i'll start by getting the obvious garbage out of here along with any personal items that i'll put off to the side for now and then i'll grab a
garbage bag and toss anything in there that's too big for the vacuum to suck up next i'll go around and pick up all the loose coins and this was definitely the most i've ever seen in a

vehicle

i think there was close to 20 dollars just sitting on the floor that'd be a nice surprise for the owner when she gets her

vehicle

back all right so as i get started on vacuuming up the massive amount of dirt and debris and old cheesies one thing that is quickly apparent is that this
mitsubishi has extremely extremely cheap carpet i'm not sure how many of you out there are detailers and might have seen this stuff before or maybe you even have a

vehicle

with carpet like this but basically it's the type of carpet that pretty well won't ever come perfectly clean no matter what you do it's tough to describe but no matter how long you vacuum it or how many times you use the brush you can't get all the dirt out i've seen it once before in a honda hrv and
unfortunately i have to deal with it in this car but i'll do what i can to get it looking almost perfect again now with everything vacuumed i'll go over it with the drill brush to get as much of the trap dirt lifted up to the surface as i can then i can quickly vacuum it up before i pull out the extractor later on now turning to the back seats and you'll notice all the red glitter covering the seats and if you're curious where that was from there was a red glittery gift bag in
the back that was ripped which somehow caused it to shed glittery debris all over these seats here now turning to the mystery spill in the back here and now that it's thawed out a bit i'm just using a couple of microfiber towels to scoop it up and then soak up as much of it as i can and then i'll leave the rest for the bissell all right so getting started on the carpets here and after spraying on some carpet solution diluted 20 to 1 with my pump sprayer i'm using the drill
brush to help get the dirt and stains loosened from the fibers so it can be sucked away with the extractor now for any of you who are wondering what my exact process is here it's really very simple because i pre-treat with the carpet solution i only use hot water in the bissell and so as i make the first pass i'm spraying water at the same time which is helping to further dilute the solution then on the second pass i'll keep spraying water and i'm closely watching the color of
deep cleaning a smoker s dirty car disaster car detailing complete vehicle transformation
the water coming through the extractor if it's still

dirty

or i can still see solution i'll keep making passes spraying water until it's coming through clear although if it's not quite clear i'll spray down some more solution use the drill brush again repeat the process until the water comes out clear and i know the section is clean then i'll switch to just extracting to make sure i can get the carpet as dry as possible now as i suck away more of the smell with the
pistol here i figured i would let you know that the links to almost every product and tool i use including the bissell the drill brush and the carpet solution i'm using are down in the description so feel free to check those out and if any of you have been looking to pick up an extractor i would highly recommend the bissell spot clean professional i've used mine a lot more than the average person ever would and it's still working perfectly not to mention it really can't be beat
for the price so now moving to the seats and having them out of the

vehicle

is going to make this process a lot easier so the one big tip i have for extracting seats is to only use as much solution as is necessary to get the seats clean the last thing you want to do is saturate the seats and have the foam underneath soaked with solution so only use as much as necessary and then when you're making your passes make sure to press down a bit to compress the foam so you can get them as dry as
possible usually the seeds are going to take a little bit longer to dry out than the carpets which in my experience with my garage heater running and the

vehicle

doors open takes a couple of hours here's all the

dirty

smoky water the bissell sucked out of this car gross turning to all the interior trim and using some all-purpose cleaner diluted 10 to 1 and a slightly down microfiber towel to wipe everything down then i'll follow up with a dry one to get any remaining apc residue
and then depending on the area of the

vehicle

i'll also use my boar's hair detail brush to get down into the switches around the door handles things like that as there's always dirt or dust hiding down in the crevices so do all right so it's time to bust the steamer out for around the gear shifter so after spraying on some apc i've got the brush attachment on and i'm using that to agitate all the grime and the ash that was all over this thing and a big tip for when
you're

cleaning

around the shifter is to put the key in so you can move it through the various gears and make sure you get the whole thing clean because there is nothing worse than your customer putting it in drive when they go to leave and seeing all the dirt that you've missed now for the super grimy cup holders i'm spraying on some four to one apc and then blasting it with the steamer to help get it all loosened up and one thing that's especially helpful for in the corners
is to take the attachment off as you can get a more concentrated and higher velocity blast of steam that can be especially good for stubborn gunk now before i get a sealant applied to the paint i'm using my clay bar to pick up and remove any surface bonded contaminants like tar tree sap or any other road grime and since i used the iron remover earlier i'm really not expecting there to be much left on this paint but i'll still get it perfectly clean so the sealant can adhere properly
all right so using some of my meguiar's mir glaze synthetic sealant i'll throw a foam finishing pad on the polisher and apply a thin even layer to the paint and besides the nice gloss it's going to provide the stuff is super easy to remove not like some waxes where you really have to put some effort into it so i would definitely highly recommend giving this stuff a look moving back to the interior and with all the plastic trim perfectly clean i'm applying some 303 aerospace
protectant using a microfiber applicator pad and if you haven't ever had the pleasure of using this stuff i highly recommend grabbing a bottle it will leave your interior with a nice matte finish for four to six weeks and provide great uv protection and then you can also use it to revive the look of any faded exterior plastics the link is in the description if you guys are interested all right so with the owner of this

vehicle

obviously smoking in here i figured the inside of the windshield
would be fairly

dirty

so i grabbed a fresh towel before

cleaning

it and this is what my towel looked like afterwards kind of gross now after doing a quick final vacuum i'll get these seats reinstalled and if any of you are curious yes they were very heavy and extremely awkward to get in and out without scratching anything so hmm how many gallons of paper sorry wow it doesn't even look like my card so sweetie it looks really really good yeah right now when you let people go in here
tell them to take your shoes off that's right i love it i do thank you so much now if you get it you can just put it in the garage and leave it to school yeah i don't even want to drive it thank you see ya all right guys and nine hours later i've got this eclipse looking sleek and sexy again if you guys enjoyed the video make sure you smash the thumbs up button and subscribe to the channel if you haven't yet enjoy the guitar intro and i'll see you guys in the next one so so
