Traditional Methods to Clean Car Upholstery

[back to table of contents]

For a long time, cleaning car upholstery has been mainly done dry, with detergents, brushes, and cloths. These methods are the most common but also the least effective since they not only require considerable time and effort but also guarantee mediocre results. Failing to penetrate the materials, the cleaning will be completely superficial, limited to dusting and leaving a good smell.

Additionally, excessive use of chemical detergents can damage the fabrics and cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Steam cleaning car upholstery offers numerous advantages over traditional methods. Steam, combined with the DettaglioAuto technique and our exclusive biodegradable detergents, penetrates deeply into the fabrics, removing dirt and bacteria without the use of aggressive chemicals. Thanks to the injection and extraction system of our 09evo, steam is injected into the materials, dissolving dirt deeply, and then sucked away, leaving a perfectly clean and sanitized surface. This technique also allows for the removal of upholstery stains, such as oil, water, salt, beverage stains, etc.

Our technique not only guarantees more effective cleaning but, thanks to our natural detergents, it offers complete safety for the health of the operators performing the washing, for the passengers themselves, and for the environment.

Tips for Keeping Car Upholstery Clean Longer: Nanotechnological Interior Protection

[back to table of contents]

To prolong the effectiveness of cleaning and protect car upholstery from future damage, it is recommended to apply nanotechnological interior protection. This treatment forms an invisible protective layer that repels liquids and dirt, facilitating cleaning and preserving the appearance of the fabrics. Additionally, nanotechnological protection reduces the absorption of liquids and odors, keeping the upholstery fresher and cleaner for longer.


It is a transparent surface coating with stain-resistant and highly water and oil repellent properties. It protects internal surfaces from UV rays and high temperatures by reflecting Infrared rays, thus reducing heat absorption. Its nanotechnological structure allows it to coat individual fibers or micropores of the material, leaving the surface breathable. Furthermore, thanks to its sanitizing action, which occurs both in the presence of light (due to photocatalytic effect) and in the dark, and its anti-adhesive property, it protects surfaces from bacteria and viruses.
