    Does anyone know any reliable firms to do a complete steam clean on a car especially underneath.

    Any details appreciated.

    I don't recommend it S. the detergents they use are pretty corrosive and leave alloys bare to corrode. Rubber seals ands gaiters can suffer and electro plated fasteners, especially Cad/Pas and zinc will corrode as well. Also not good for cloth wrapped wiring looms etc.
    If its bad then a cold degreaser like Gunk and a jet wash is better. I would still give most alloy and rubber surfaces a spray with Duck oil after.

    Yeah I know but its something I have to have done. The alloys I will just thoroughly clean but the underside and arches will need doing.

    I was thinking of a steam clean for my white stitching on the steering wheel a few other bits...... is there any detriment to using a cleaner for that?

    Sorry for the slight detraction from the thread, just didn't want to start another on the same subject ;)
