How To Use
It is very important to remove as much debris as possible with the vacuuming stage. If you are able to utilize an air compressor, this will be very beneficial to blow out the areas where a vacuum crevice tool cannot fit. If you have severe stains, we suggest using our Greenway’s Spot Lyft as a pretreatment for the most effective stain removal. You can simply apply Spot Lyft to the heavily stained areas and lightly scrub with a soft or stiff brush.
Your brush will be determined by the type of fabric you are trying to clean. For your standard cloth fabric, a medium to stiff brush will be sufficient. For more delicate fabrics such as microfiber, Alcantara and some “sport” cloth seats, a boar’s hair, horse hair or a microfiber towel can be used for gentle scrubbing. Be cautious when using a terry towel depending on the material being cleaned. A terry towel has great absorption properties and fibers are generally coarse. This can remove the solution from the fabric and damage delicate material. Terry towels are best used on carpeting, standard cloth and when maximize absorption is needed.
After you are finished with the pre-treatment step, you can now proceed to your extractor stage or hand cleaning stage.
Extractor Machine Method
Some users like to add Greenway’s Extract It All directly into the extractor machine, while others like to spray Extract It All over the entire affected areas and then extract. Either method will work extremely well to help clean the carpet and upholstery.
If your extractor is heated, make sure to pre-heat your extractor prior to use and follow all manufactures directions on proper usage. Extract all surface areas and then allow to dry thoroughly.
After the entire vehicle is complete, you can proceed to do another complete vacuum of the interior. Doing another vacuum of the carpeting and upholstery will help gather any debris that was brought to the surface that was embedded into the fibers of the material. You do not want to use your extractor machine like a vacuum unless your machine is equipped to do so.
Hand Scrub Method
If hot water is available, you can fill a small bucket and place brush of choice in the bucket. After you apply Greenway’s Extract It All to the affected areas, dip your brush into the water solution, and apply to areas that need agitation. This hot water will help further break up heavier stains and also further distribute product amount the deeper fibers on the material.
After the entire vehicle is complete, you can proceed to do another complete vacuum of the interior. Doing another vacuum of the carpeting and upholstery will help gather any debris that was brought to the surface that was embedded into the fibers of the material.
It is extremely important to always follow the proper dilution. Many detailers feel that more product is better, which Is not necessarily true. Using an excessive amount of product at a higher concentration ratio will end up in excess product left behind on the materials. Excess Extract It All will attract dirt from the materials that it makes contact with (E.g. shoes, clothing, etc). This will make all surfaces become dirtier much quicker than usual.
If you have an extractor machine, a clear wand is the best type of tool to use for viewing purposes. A clear wand will allow the user to observe how much material is still left within the fibers of the vehicle. This will show the detailer when the extractor method is complete due absence of solution through the wand viewing area.
When working in a colder climate and time is of a concern, it is advisable to always complete the interior detail first. This will allow proper drying times before your customer picks up the vehicle. If your outside and you do not have the access to any drying machines and full cleaning of the materials is requested by the customer, a chamois works great in absorbing excess moisture. While terry towels and some microfiber towels can pull up excess moisture, a chamois typically can absorb more water than any towel can. This will also lead to fewer towels being and faster results. This chamois should be dedicated for interior use only and should not be utilized on paintwork. We suggest always purchasing two different color chamois or marking (E.g cutting, branding) the material in a way to disguise its use.
Most utility vacuums come equipped with a dry filter pickup sleeve. These sleeves are not appropriate when you are a detailer who does not utilize a carpet cleaning machine and relies on your vacuum for dry and wet pickup. Once the dry filter becomes saturated overtime with solution, filter breakdown and clogging occur at the motor head. The motor head is further strained and debris passes through the material into assembly portion. Vacuum lifespan is extremely shorted and vacuum replacement is frequent. Investing in a foam filter which is usually less than $5.00 dollars, can extend the life of your vacuum for years. Most warranties are not granted by the manufacture of the vacuum due to the vacuum not being made for commercial use and debris inside the motor head. Most small business owners do not have the funds to purchase a commercial unit right away, in which this is completely okay. Using a “contractor” grade type of vacuum will last for years with the appropriate filter always attached. Never worry about the size of the debris tank, as detailers we are vacuuming small debris and portability along with horsepower is much more of a concern. A 4 or 5-gallon recovery tank is more than ample for any detail shop whether large or small.
Always utilize the proper extension cord when using an extractor machine. These machines typically have a high amperage draw and can be ruined if using too thin and too long of an extension. Make sure to check with manufacture on which cord is suitable for your particular model. If you are a mobile detailer and want to run an extractor by using a generator, make sure your generator is capable of the initial amp draw of the machine. Underpowering the machine can have a negative effect on both pieces of equipment.
