DIY method would be to hire out a rug doctor and do it that way.

You could always unbolt the interior which is 4 bolts a seat and snowfoam and blast, then use a carpet cleaner to suck most of the water away. I gave it a try and came out cleaner that I ever would of got it with a rugdoctor

I would recommend taking the seats out of the car first (4 bolts and 1 connector to undo per seat) and then carefully beat the dust and dirt out of them with a carpet beater or large wooden spoon etc then work on them with a dry brush and finally onto wet cleaning them with rug doctor or similar. Its the same process for access floor mats. If you just wet shampoo them it will leave loads of dirt in place. ;)
