Interior valeting is often overlooked as “simple” but it is a vital skill for any detailer to master – the difference between an acceptable job and a fantastic job can be vast. With the range of materials and surfaces in modern vehicles, navigating the most efficient way to care for interiors is sometimes difficult. Learning the chemistry behind stain removal, the correct tools for the job and how best to employ them, and how to deal with unusual and stubborn tasks is the aim of this course. We push your knowledge further and advance your skillset through technique and demonstration, enabling you to reduce time spent cleaning and re-cleaning interiors, increasing efficiency, and advancing your interior valeting skills to a new level.
