    So my client returned their car for a maintance wash. This client we did the drivepur system using the sonic fogger a couple weeks ago and the client advised they smoked in the car just as they normally would and they were amazed how there was no signs of any smoke scent. I went inside to confirm and sure enough there was no trace of any smoke smell. I turned on the a/c to see if I could smell anyting from the vents and nothing. So far from what I can tell the Prevent stage of the system is working as advertised!! I`m more impressed w/ this system everytime we use it.

    Two things - the smok product has to come in contact with the tar. Tar is the residue left behind from smoking in the car or home... Smok changes the chemistry of tar... Another helpful tip is to treat the vehicle before detailing the interior... On an extremly heavy smoker - wipe the headliner with a damp microfiber towel. You`ll be amazed at whats pulled out.



    The differnce between our TiO2 product and the others is the binder that bonds our product to the plastic, leather and glass - The others are simply spraying tio2 and the nano size particles embed themselves into the fabric only.



    Prevnt needs very little sunlight....the windshield produces more than enough light... For the car stored in the basement - a simple full spectrum bulb or blacklight bulb is all thats needed... You need the UV-A spectrum to work.



    If you treated an odor problem or smoker and still have an odor - its not the product its the application that failed.... the fogger is the best application.

    CarPro So2 - doesnt have an effective binder - for bonding... They use Sio2 Sodium Silicate as a binder. Tio2 breaks down Sio2 and will only last a few weeks.

    I sent an email to request some info 3 weeks ago and still have not got a reply. To bad if a product is that good that nobody contacts a potential buyer after this amount of time goes by. IMO

    Well it has failed me again! I have another car coming back, talked to another detailer that loves it......suggested I might not be using enough of the smok product to rid the car of the smoke smell. They are coming back (which I hate) for another chance at it. I tried to call the company, but had to leave messages.



    No so cheery,

    Did this on a car last week(Previously did the car and the smoke odor was still there) used Smok and it worked like a charm!.

    Just curious how you`re applying the product? I`ve only used the fogger for application so I cant really speak upon the other methods. But hope it works out better this time for you! Good Luck!

    using the toranado cannon, need to get close to the fabrics and move slow, suppose to use 4-8 oz (depending on severity) per car of smok. was told the fogger method doesn`t work well for smok, you need to drive the product into the fabric to come in contact with the tar/smoke. I haven`t heard back from my client had to leave a message today, I`m hoping my new method and a second dose did the trick if not......what else can I do with drivepur?



    I have a dealership that wants me to try.......so I may give it a go. I just can`t have customers coming back, its bad business.



    Cheers,

    I decided to visit the website to see the infomercial and get more info, it appears to be promising, but the website is having some major technical issues, many of

    it`s features don`t work. I`m not even sure my form will be received by anyone.



    Anyhow, I`m gonna look into this more and see what happens.
