How to clean seats in car

We have a Focus estate which we keep reasonably clean and tidy however the seats are becoming a bit of a let down. This has been exacerbated by the new baby who vomits with some force and we urgently need to deep clean the seats. Obviously when it happens I do the best I can to clean up but can often be some time before I can wash the surface. Can I buy a steam cleaner or hire one? Would that do it? Advice welcome

I used a carpet cleaner with the upholstery attachment. Other than that I gave the a good clean with dry cleaning powder you rub on and hoover off. The one I used was corn by dyson.

Presumably they are fabric seats? If so, I would say a steam cleaner would be the best option. If they're leather, I wouldn't use a steam cleaner. Our manual says to just use a damp cloth with no cleaning product, but I use saddle soap as we have a dog who loves water/mud so the back seats get filthy (even though covered with a blanket). Could always check your manual to see what they recommend?

If you don't already have a steam cleaner then can you just use a local cleaning service - we have loads around by us that charge about £20 for a full in and out car clean including seats....if you do tell them specifically the problem area.

Just to clarify I meant the car wash places that are usually located in supermarket car parks/old petrol stations
Although you can get some that come out to your home but I imagine they would charge more
