    The Classy Life of a Professional Detailer

    Started with latex gloves, removed mats. Pressure washed mats and door jams. Used extractor to get the bulk off the floor and seats. Filled Tornador with Meg's APC 10-1, hit the doors, plastic, metal seat guides, and all the corners of the carpet. Pulled out the VX5000 and hit all those spots again with steam. Vacuumed everything using empty Tornador to blow out the fibers of the carpet. Filled the Tornador with 4-1 Folex and DI water, hit the seats and carpet. Grabbed my Mytee HP60 and switched the upholstery tool to the new Mytee Dry. Rinsed seats and floor, extracting everything that was loosened up with the Tornador. Hit everything with a active enzyme odor controller. Turned on the engine, put the AC on recirculat, put in my Ozone generator and closed it up for a 30min shock. Whole thing took about 3 hours.

    Oh that's nasty. Glad you decided to glove up for it. Puke is one of those things that definitely turns my stomach...ugh.

    Great job, though! Looks as if it never happened!

    Me too, and I get puke calls almost every Monday, having my shop in a small college town, party on Saturday, someone pukes in the car Saturday night, they let it sit all day on Sunday, then call me to fix it on Monday morning...and since I'm almost always booked, I turn the job down

    Thanks guys. My trick for these nasty cars is to put my big industrial fan behind me. It keeps the smell from getting over powering.

    Depends on if they just want that area cleaned or the whole car. This one was just the back so I charged 150, he was so happy I got a nice tip on top.
