Steam Cleaners

Steam is a very useful tool for detailers. It can be utilized on both the interior and exterior as well as the engine bay for sensitive cleaning areas. Steam cleaners are also very useful around the house!

Use distilled or soft water when using a steam cleaner to prevent mineral deposits from clogging or damaging the machine.
