That will take all day to do then, another day to dry. A steam cleaner is the only way to go.

What's your budget? Its will be cheaper to send the car out to have it done.

The benefit to buying one is, you can make the money back by doing other cars.

I didn't check any locations, just tried to find out if it is possible do it myself assuming that is pretty expensive to have it done. Plus with the heat in Vegas I should be fine in one day maybe less.

Now there is a small problem.... need equipment - extractor.....
