Frequently Asked Questions

Will the steam cleaning process scratch the vehicle?
No. Scratches from traditional car washes are due to tiny particles of dirt, sand and rust rubbing against the paint of a vehicle when cleaning brushes make direct contact with the paint. Steam cleaning removes these particles by using the proper amount of heat, pressure and water, without any direct contact. After, a microfiber cloth, applied with minimal pressure, is used to dry the vehicle.

Will steam cleaning damage the paint?
No. Auto paint is designed to be resistant to extremely high and low temperatures. Enviowash’s steam cleaning equipment uses a low psi of 115 and a steam temperature that falls below 212 ° F, which is perfectly safe for auto paint.

Is steam cleaning only for exterior surfaces?
No. Enviowash’s steam cleaning process works wonders for vehicle interiors. Stains and dirt on carpets, floor mats, roof liners and upholstery are removed thoroughly with steam.
