Cleaning Boat Upholstery
First things first, you have to keep it clean. With all the elements your boat’s upholstery comes in contact with, it is no wonder that it needs a good deep cleaning every now and then. That means it is time to roll up your sleeves and get ready to work. But what should you clean it with? The type of cleaner you should use depends on the material, but we always recommend that you go for a high-quality product. Look for a product that not only cleans, but also protects your leather or vinyl upholstery.
Protecting Boat Upholstery
It isn’t a secret that the sun’s UV rays can wreak havoc on your boat’s upholstery. Anytime your not using your boat it is important to keep it covered with a UV protectant cover if you don’t have shelter for it. Keeping your boat covered will allow your boat’s interior to last for years to come. A good boat cover may not be cheap, but it is worth it when you consider the cost of reupholstering your boat.
Boat Upholstery Care Tips
As much as you may be tempted to take advice from well-meaning friends and family when it comes to caring for your boat upholstery, we always want you to have the best advice. After all, you spent a lot of money to make your boat beautiful and you need to protect that investment.
When you are choosing the right cleaning product for your boat, we never recommend that you use dish soap, laundry soap, or any other DIY solution. Look for high-quality products that are designed for your upholstery. You also need to keep the environment in mind. If your boat is in saltwater, you will need a product that counteracts salt damage. We also advise that you keep up with your boat maintenance and cleaning year-round and not just during the boating season.
