Our first stage is to wash off contamination from the outside of the vehicle, we use a special disinfectant that runs through our hot pressure washer.

We also sprayed the whole interior with enzymes. Right away this process made a large difference to the smell of the vehicle which up until this point had smelt much like a swamp.
