can a monocoque exterior be steam cleaned

Post by samleeds on Tue Apr 18, 2017 7:21 pm

My local interior cleaner of caravans and upholstery insists that my vans exterior would benefit with a good detailed steam clean from his powerful and modern steam cleaner. Im gonna get the whole van done before selling it so its either his steam cleaner or the lads from Tourshine.

I wouldn't let a steam cleaner anywhere near the outside of my van personally, decals and seals in particular are likely to be damaged. so_sad

Sounds like there's a reason he's classed as an interior cleaner, probably best to keep him as that.

his steamer is a brush headed non invasive type and it wont strip decals unless applied to them. He only uses it on plain bodywork and not decals or seams unless its window sills that need cleaning out or degunking. Ive seen he=is reults on a caravan and its amazing how much dirt and grease he gets off. In saying all of that. Ive found paul  from tourershine languishing in europe on holiday and asked him to do it when he gets back. Whoever gets this van will be getting a showroom quality finish and a first rate mechanically tricked out unit. Im even spending £500 this week upgrading the solar and inverter system to complete the whole package. Im offering it for sale in a month or 2 after Ive had my last trip to France as my licence is going very soon and the rest of the year will be spent in treatment or waiting for god.
