Car Detailing : Car Detailing: Remove Odor


Hi, it’s Dowell here at the Firehouse Detail
Shop. We’re doing an interior detail and we’re teaching you how to do it like a pro. One
of the things that we get often asked here is, “the inside of my car smells horrible,”
either it’s pet, pet urine, maybe a child had a vomiting accident, or you purchased
a car, or had a friend smoke in your car, odor removal is possible, it’s not always
easy. The first part is we’ve got to clean the car to remove the things that are creating
the odor. So, if it’s vomit, we have special things like Azapit, it goes in, it’s got enzymes,
it’s got deodorizers in it that clean vomit, that clean up pet urine, child urine. It’s
really important that we know what causes those smells though. The person comes in and
says “my cars smells,” you have to ask a lot of questions, to try to narrow out what it
is, where it’s coming from, and how it’s happening, so we can attack the problem. If you’ve got
a smoker in the car previously, and you want the smoke done, there’s really two options,
the first line of defense is an odor bomb. We buy these from Budco, we actually turn
the car on, you run the air, you get air circulating, you set this on a piece of paper, or a towel,
you turn it on for four, or five, six seconds, close the doors, let it fumigate the car,
and then hurry and open it, and turn it off, and then you just let the car sit. That goes
in and it neutralizes the odors. The other way to do it, if that doesn’t work, is you
can go to an ozone machine. We have ozone machines here, we’ll place them inside, it
creates ozone, that ozone permeates the car, the filtering system, the air flow and it
goes in and it will actually kill the odor causing bacterias and the things that causes
odor in the car. You bought a car, it’s smells bad, the chances are you’re going to have
to take it to a professional detailing shop, if you’re a professional detailing shop you’ll
know how to remove the smoke with the things we just talked about. Odor removal is very
important to your customers, or to you and that’s probably why you’re watching this segment.
