Car Detailing A Chevrolet Suburban! Complete Full Car Interior Cleaning!

Oh Wow we look at this Welcome back to another episode of Stauffer garage guys Today’s detail is probably going to be one of the most fun details I’ve ever done. It is a 1999 Chevy Suburban with a diesel engine, which that’s just cool I’m super excited for this detail, especially because this is my wife’s grandfather. So my grandfather in-law he is also Vietnam veteran I love giving back to veterans as well to kind of pay back for their service that they did for our country let’s go and dive right into it and let me show you what it looks like before and if you’re interested in any of the Tools or products that I do use please make sure you check out the description box below So the first step is get everything out of the vehicle itself This is usually entailing getting anything out of cupholders anything out of rear cargo mat Anything underneath the seats and when you do remove your floor mats from any vehicle that you’re working on make sure you do so slowly And do try to fold it up So that way you’re not dropping that dirt that’s contained in those mats onto the floor and it just kind of makes your job easier When you go to vacuum All right, so now I have everything pulled out of the trunk You kind of get a better idea of the depth of the stain here Which I’m hoping comes out pretty easily Some of this stuff on here will be a little bit more interesting that I’m going to try to use a steam cleaner on at least for some of these stains in the carpet and just try to Lightly brush it with some spray and then brush it itself and then try to soak it up So that way you’re not damaging this felt because this is just glued on Just like your headliner is now that the spare tire is out as well you can kind of see there’s just a lot of the staining that I would have missed if I never pulled out that is just A nice extra touch to get to a lot of this dirt that’s there and then inside these brackets we’ll get all these cleaned out and all vacuumed out but then what I’m going to do is I’m actually just gonna take the pressure washer and pressure wash these I Think it’ll be a little bit quicker of a job And then if I do these first it gives it time to dry and then on this spare tire cover I’m just gonna vacuum it and maybe spot treat if there’s a few different areas But kind of just clean it up in general outside of the car and let these dry after I’m get done brush washing So for the floor mats the first step that I did was just pressure wash and try to rinse off as much dirt as Possible the driver side floor mat was obviously the one with the most amount of dirt and I did get quite a bit out But then I had to go to the next step which included using my all-purpose cleaner And then I started to use a more direct formula too specific for carpet extraction and some of the deeper and harder stains in this case the driver side floor mat actually Contained diesel fuel oil and a lot of different chemicals and substances that are not typical for floor mats So that’s why I did spend more time on that one in particular and I was able to get all of it out Now that the carpets are clean and extracted I have those hanging up to dry for the remaining of the detail And that was one of the big reasons why I did them first because I was going to be doing them a little bit more Aggressively and essentially soaking them as much as possible to get all that dirt out I wanted to make sure that there was time for them to dry before the end of the detail So the next step that I did was actually cleaning all of the different door jams within the vehicle itself so by using my brush and the steam cleaner I was able to remove all grease and dirt that was caked into all the door jams Since this car had been cleaned but it wasn’t deep cleaned in a long period of time I used the steam cleaner on all the plastic panels along with the windows themselves to remove any of the oily grease that kind of accumulates over time on those surfaces In The past I have always done the door jambs as a part of my exterior cleans But since I’ve been doing more interior cleans lately I’ve realized that the door jams are an integral part of an interior clean itself It kind of pulls the whole package together when you present the car to the customer Now that all the door jams are clean the next step in the process is to actually vacuum all of the carpet I like to do vacuuming at this stage of the detail just to get the majority of the dirt and leaves and debris out of The vehicle as possible, especially when you start cleaning the door jams or start wiping down plastic panels You don’t want to introduce any dirt that could have been just vacuumed up at this point of the detail One thing you could also do to ensure that you don’t bring any additional and debris into the vehicle after you vacuumed is to wear Socks and just take your shoes off as you get in and out of the vehicle It does help with minimizing some of that cross contamination So now when it comes to cleaning the dashboard I’m just using my all-purpose cleaner diluted twenty to one that I talked about earlier and my detailing brushes to Get between all the different cracks and crevices of the dashboard itself to clean out those panels and clean out that dirt Nobody else can take your place. I’ll never want somebody One thing when you’re cleaning the vehicle there’s any parts that do come out of the car Make sure you kind of check underneath them in this case when I was cleaning the glovebox area I did find that when the cup holder is moved There was a lot of different trash and stuff that was accumulated underneath that surface So granted the customer won’t see that but as a detailer Those are the kind of things that you look for to complete the job and just kind of elevate your whole process Now the interior has been clean with my all-purpose cleaner I am now following up with the Chemical Guys silk and shine to essentially coat and protect the interior surface This is what gives it that shine and luster that you’re kind of looking for of a brand new vehicle So for the seats I am using the Lexx all products that I had talked about earlier the first step is to use the Lexile cleaner and this is just putting some onto a clean microfiber towel and Agitating it on the surface itself once you have cleaned the surface with the Lexile cleaner you then just want to use a damp microfiber towel to remove any product that Is left on the surface So once you have the seats clean grab a new microfiber towel in the leather conditioner to then coat the surface and leave it on for about five to ten minutes is what I Standardly do and then wipe it off with a clean microfiber towel So for the windows I’m using invisible glass and one thing to remember is to make sure you roll down the window after you’ve done the main part of the surface to get that top leading edge that you Would typically miss if you didn’t do so So the last step of the detail is to put the floor mats back in put in the spare tire and the spare tire cover That had removed earlier So now that the detail is complete it is now time to show the owner at the end results Doesn’t it it came out good I’m out great. Yes Everything smells smells like a brand new vehicle all the seats are conditioned and cleaned – so they’re all they should be nice and soft now – and I got a lot of the stains out And all this out – so you’re good to go Wow You’re welcome. Yeah, it turned out real nice it was fun to do Yeah, I forgot what I used to be like to have buttons that go in and out like this, they don’t make them like that anymore Oh Make sure those are all Center video they don’t make them like that anymore.

  1. I wish you were closer to where I live. I would love for you to do both of mine. Your attention to detail is incredible.

  2. I recently bought a year old car from a reputable dealer. Under the cup holder hadn't been cleaned. Lots of crap under there lol

  3. Very nice! This will be a guide I use to help clean up my GMT400! Thank you for the video and keep up the great work!

  4. Invest in knee guards!!! It’ll help with your back and your pants don’t touch the dirty stuff! 😁

  5. I'm so inspired by you.
    I'm a clean freak and I like your system of cleaning.
    Just wanted to though, do you apply some oil or grease to door hinges after you clean them?

  6. I've found that those pesky stains on plastics like the door jambs are easily removed with a magic eraser. It is a mild abrasive so use carefully. I even use it to remove the stuck on rubber from the door gaskets. Just don't use on any painted horizontal surface as you will see dull areas where you scrub. On low vertical surfaces it isn't noticeable

  7. Hey dude, I really appreciate the level of detail that you go into when detailing a vehicle and really enjoy your content. I'm having a hard time finding anyone who would give this much effort in their work. Just curious, how much would you charge for this service on a similar vehicle?

  8. Quick question when seats that are wear and tear is it possible to restore them make them kind of newish??? I once had a guy detail my lexus IS 300 but the seats still had stains when I got the car the seats came a bit bad scratched ect ….

  9. This really isn't detailing, carpets not cleaned, headlining not touched, just some farting around with a brush on the air vents?! If you are doing the interior why waste so much time messing with a steam cleaner for the door jambs just pressure wash? Check out autoshine cars for the correct procedure. This is closer to a dealership valet but with extra time wasted

  10. I know this is an older video BUUUUT… the driver's side floor mat and various other areas that have grease/oil type stains.. try using Dawn dish soap. This is what my mother does for the floor mats in her boyfriend's truck and the garage as well as a tad in his greasy uniforms (hes a mechanic).

    Love your videos. Very therapeutic 🥰

  11. Please while making a video can you show us hop the process will be noisy because this also an important who wants to start detailing thanks bro 😅

  12. Just bought this same exact vehicle. They gave it to us with with French fries and beer cans still in it lol. Working on detailing it. Love this vehicle, way cleaner then mine
