Steam cleaners can use high pressure and high temperatures to clean. The pressure levels of up to 1,500 psi are ideal for car exteriors, but pressure alone will not remove tough deposits. Mobile carwash equipment that generates steam temperatures of up to 250 degrees can remove even the most stubborn deposits, such as sap, mud and grease.

For interiors, the story recommended steam cleaners with pressure levels of 75 psi to 125 psi and steam temperatures of over 369 degrees. These are best used to clean leather, vinyl, door jams and hard surfaces.
